A day after Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa wrote to Indian Prime Minister urging to cancel the sale of two warships to Sri Lanka, Indias Shipping Minister G.K. Vasan also voiced his opposition to the sale.

The Minister has said that he would urge the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to sell the vessels.

However, the Union Minister for State in the Prime Ministers Office, V. Narayanasamy,  confirmed that the Indian government has agreed to supply naval warships to Sri Lanka during 2017 based on an agreement signed few years ago.
