A TMVP delegation headed by Eastern Province Chief Minister Sivanesathurai Chandrakanthan is expected to leave for India next month to hold discussions with the Indian government over the TMVP’s policies, a party official told Daily Mirror online.

The TMVP, which failed to secure even a single seat in parliament after their defeat at the General elections said that they are currently in discussions with the Indian government over the details of the tour to the neighboring country late next month. The party is expected to meet high ranking Indian officials during their visit.

“We are currently in discussions with the Indian government. We will finalize our dates to leave for India soon,” TMVP Spokesperson Azath Maulana said.

The decision to travel to India came after an invitation was extended to the TMVP by Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao when she visited the island in early March.

Rao met Chandrakanthan in Colombo where the TMVP presented its election manifesto for the General Elections and explained the party’s policies.

During the meeting, Rao had also assured Chandrakanthan that India would do everything possible to support and help the TMVP promote its policies and said India was ‘happy’ with the party. (Daily Mirror online)

    Now they have been decimated in elections, they may need some insurance and protection from India.Our young friend should have hung on to the 'satakaya' rather than trying his luck on his own!I am sure he will learn few tricks from his foe 'Karuna' on statecraft.

    All these talks are simply for propaganda, and good for nothing. If only the Singhalese population and politicians realize how much the Lanka can prosper with two nations working together and get everyone else, including India, out of Sri Lanka.

    This Chief does not speak English. But he is going to have a meeting with Indian authorities. Is any English maniac willing to comment on this??

    True, its what we have to do, I do agree with you if you say all in Sri Lanka not only two nations as we always wanted to be one nation!

    Exactly
    Where is the action towards prosperity.

    What is it they want to talk about now which they hadn't talked of earlier ? On second thoughts, they should be doing something to make their presence felt.

    Sri Lanka will prosper as a ONE NATION. Some tried to impede us entangling us into a terrorist insurgency for the past 30 years. Now we got rid of them and way to the prosperity .........................

    It looks as if the unwritten law of India is that Sri Lanka is but an independent country by name only .
    Where on earth do you find another country inviting defunct parties from a foreign country for talks, for what?
    agree to train them on the art of warfare? which they did 30 years ago .

    He must have been watching enough Bollywoods so why do you think he cannot speak "Hindlish"?

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:28 PM

    Maybe, Pillayan is good at sign language ! Anyway, what has India got to do with a political party rejected by the Sri Lankan voters.

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 01:30 PM

    The funny thing is people who pass deragotary remarks at English maniacs, do still insist on writing to English newspapers!

    Tuesday, 27 April 2010 04:44 PM

    DOES HE THINK HE CAN 'TWIST THE ARM' OF OUR LEADERS BY THESE 'MONKEY TRICKS'?

    Wednesday, 28 April 2010 05:42 AM

    As long as there is no war PEACE prevails... we have to encourage this...India is our neighbour they assited with defeating the brutal ltte war ...we should not forget that...
