Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj told Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that she was satisfied with her recent visit to Sri Lanka, the Times of India reported.

Swaraj called on Singh to apprise him of the details of the 12-member delegation's visit to Sri Lanka and meeting with the leaders and officials there. National Security Advisor Shiv Shankar Menon and Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai were present during the meeting.

“I would say I am satisfied with our visit to Sri Lanka,” the BJP leader told reporters yesterday. The delegation met representatives of all political parties in Sri Lanka and visited the rehabilitation camp for Tamils.

Swaraj said the delegation met the women and children living in the camp as the men were away at work. She said the rehabilitation efforts were good and ahead of schedule.

There are three lakh displaced Tamils in Sri Lanka of which only 3,000 have not been rehabilitated.

Swaraj also had a one-on-one breakfast meeting with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksha. "We discussed the withdrawal of army from civic life. They come to birthday parties uninvited or enter temples. We also discussed the 13th Amendment," she said.

    SHE COULD'NT SEE THE REAL SITUATION THERE, FOR AN EXAMPLE MULLAITIVU HOSPITAL WAS RENOVATED IN A SHORT NOTICE BEFORE HER ARRIVAL.

    No need to, there is no threat of terrorism in the South.

    Everybody will satisfy except Some Tamils we cannot make them satisfy because they are behind Europe and America to get a new citizenship there. “Terror LTTE"

    India and UN cannot do anything.Minister of Economic Development says government may collapse due to internal weaknesses. It is great JHU has come forward to strengthen the government and president now, without falling in to the traps of external conspiracies.

    I notice there are many comments made here. The fact is no one could please all of the people all of the time. I am happy at least Sushma Swaraj saw what is really taking place in a positive note and its a fair report. Kudos to her.

    This opposition leader seems to have more clout in Sri Lanka than Ranil.
