Senior BJP leader and former foreign minister Yashwant Sinha on Wednesday said concrete steps would be taken to solve the Tamil Nadu fishermen issue and the Sri Lankan Tamils issue within three months of the NDA forming the government at the Centre.

His assurance at a speech  at the Rajah Annamalai Manram here, drew loud applause. “I have very fond memories of dealing with  Lanka when I was External Affairs Minister because there were no problems.

He charged the Congress-led UPA of being unable to act on matters pertaining to Sri Lanka, as it found it untenable to oppose the Rajapaksa government after having been complicit in the events of the end stages of Lanka’s bloody civil war. He evaded  queries over differences between the party’s Central and State units. (Source: Indian Express)

    Yes Sinhalese & Tamils all came from India but now All of them have SL passport.. The problem is India should call to Both to accept Indian citizenship... Then Who willing to go India they can apply.. others remain here in Sri Lanka as Sri Lankan.. This is the easy way to sort out Tamils problem by Indian.. If not it should be Sri Lankan style not Indian or International.... We have problems of Indian fisherman are in our Territorie.. But Sri Lankan Tamils not worried about that.. They don't mind that.. That menace they want to be Indian.. Like PERUMAL some peoples want to be Indian.. pls. India accept them.. We remember what they did in 1987.. Indian army rape Sri Lankan Tamil women not Singhales women.. Tamil in North still say about that... via DM Android App

    We have seen this type of Indians over and over again last 5000 years of our unbroken proud history. When comparing to their ancient Indian so-called heroes - this guy is made of celluloid only. I will tell you what, ultimately he have take all the Tamils living in this country back to India if he dance too much.

    BJP is not sure about getting absolute majority at the forth-coming elections, and that is why the tough talk to woo the TN votes. " Coming colour " no good for Sri Lanka.

    Hard times ahead, watch your steps.

    A big hero talk.

    The fishermen are tamils man. Not many sinhalese....shows that your terrorist agenda of using your own people as scapegoats has not ended, though you shed crocodile tears for you.....just as well remember that your farce will not be tolerated for long....just wait and see what will happen to you countryless paupers....

    They cant solve the Kashmir problem, last 65 years. Please India, mind your own business. Last 35 years Indian News Papers, Media, Rulers's of India and TV stations said Sri Lanka war no side is winning also. Sri Lanka proved to India and world how to eradicate terrorism.

    Suq Madique Wednesday, 26 February 2014 04:20 AM

    You don't need 90 days because there is an immediate solution. Just get your fishermen to stay on their side of the maritime border

    BJB Chanda Gundu. yes stop them from stealing our resources

    Perera Wednesday, 26 February 2014 07:15 PM

    We keep fighting with the Tamils who are very similar to the Sinhalese in culture, religion etc while allowing the Muslims to grow in numbers, who are totally different to SL culture (only arab culture) and think they belong in Arabia.

    Just a thought, think about it!!!!
