Visiting Indian Foreign Secretary (FS) S. Jaishankar assured the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) that he would raise delay in the constitution-making process with President Maitripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the TNA said yesterday.

It said in a statement that it met Mr. Jaishankar and updated him about the constitution-making process which appeared to have stalled.

“The foreign secretary assured the TNA that he would raise these matters when he meets the President and the Premier,” the statement said.

The TNA delegation which met Mr. Jaishankar at the Indian High Commission in Colombo apprised the foreign secretary of some pressing issues faced by the Tamil people including the lack of progress in relation to the release of lands occupied by the military in the North and East, the disappearances and about the Tamil political prisoners.

The TNA delegation, led by party Leader R. Sampanthan, who is also Opposition Leader, was made up of Mavai Senathirajah, M.A. Sumanthiran, Selvam Adaikkalanaathan, Dharmalingham Siddaarththan and Suresh Premachandran. The Foreign Secretary was accompanied by Indian High Commissioner Taranjit Singh Sandhu, the Joint Secretary and other officials.

    do not interfere in sri lankas internal matters. sri lanka is not a state of india

    Sirisena Tuesday, 21 February 2017 01:28 PM

    India is meddling with our affairs because they know how dangerous a stable Sri Lanka (or any other neighbour) is to their regional status. With a President and PM who don't have the backbone and a people divided along party and race lines, it's easy job for the Indian's to destabilize (well its already done) the country. Spheres of influence people

    TNA should go to India and do politics there.What has some Indian politician with our constitution.Our leader should not forget what India and TNA both did to this country by creating and nourishing LTTE.

    Ganesh Tuesday, 21 February 2017 03:00 PM

    You all need India whenever you need to annihilate the war with LTTE. now you talk against ,ungrateful opportunists

    India is vastly far superior country than sri lanka, we should let them conclude. They know whats best for us.

    Nihal Amarasekera Tuesday, 21 February 2017 03:49 PM

    Actually it is the interfear that makes them interfere in our affairs.

    Sheri Tuesday, 21 February 2017 05:37 PM

    Vastly far superior - even tamil nadu? Is that why the majority of people there live in poverty?

    public Tuesday, 21 February 2017 08:49 PM

    Mr Baffalo brings us the joke of the day. Just ignore him his a troll.

    Haramanis Tuesday, 21 February 2017 10:00 AM
