The Bharatiya Janata Party termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to Sri Lanka as ‘historic’ and said that it would pave the way for strong ties between both nations.

Prime Minister’s visit to Jaffna has sent a very positive message to Tamils living in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka.

Modi became the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Jaffna.

The houses in Jaffna were built with India’s assistance for those who became homeless during the war.

During his visit to Sri Lanka, Modi said the security of the two nations is indivisible and favoured a life of equality, justice and dignity for Tamils.
