Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met former president Mahinda Rajapaksa in Colombo in an apparently unscheduled late night meeting, The Hindu said today.

Indian High Commisioner to Sri Lanka Taranjit Singh Sandhu has told that the meeting was held at Mr. Rajapaksa’s request.

The meeting comes ten days after MP Wimal Weerawansa called for a black flag protest around Mr. Modi's visit.

Mr. Rajapaksa has earlier blamed India for his defeat in the January 2015 presidential polls, but in a recent media interview said that he admired Mr. Modi, the article said.

Former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa and former minister G.L. Peiris had also taken part in the meeting held with the Indian Premier, informed sources told Daily Mirror.

    Mahinda with Weerawansa wanted to show the "Black Flag" to Indian Prime Minister Modi, are they not shameless to sit in front a Great Legend?

    Really? more like a two faced snake

    DJ Saturday, 13 May 2017 08:03 AM

    Can't wait to see the day we can stand up for ourselves. We need a National minded leader who will put country first above all. Cannot see that in our present lot bother governing and opposition

    Sometimes it is necessary to meet them to understand their true nature.

    sujata Saturday, 13 May 2017 08:48 AM

    Dear Sach,MR is not a statesman, he is an opportunist

    Thinkger Saturday, 13 May 2017 09:43 AM

    The title should be 'MR and Gota meet Modi' not the other way around

    Sharon Saturday, 13 May 2017 09:56 AM

    You are sick

    M O Daya Saturday, 13 May 2017 06:54 PM

    You mean Modi can change the wind?

    M O Daya Saturday, 13 May 2017 06:57 PM

    Did you read this article properly?MR wanted to meet Modi. CBK has no need for it. She has self-respect.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Saturday, 13 May 2017 07:47 PM

    A great leader, who is globally recognized should not sit and talk to looters

    APOLOGISE ? Saturday, 13 May 2017 06:55 AM

    The posture of both parties (as seen in the picture) is far from apologising

    Any proof so far?? What's happening now???

    Abhijeet Monday, 15 May 2017 10:26 AM

    well, this is a common protocol/Good will gesture when visiting premier meets the opposition leaders!why Lankan brothers are taking it in a wrong way?

    no politics Monday, 15 May 2017 10:52 AM

    Abhijeet Honey, MR is not the Opposition Leader. He was an MP now who happened to be the ex-president. Well I am a MR supporter and someone who voted for him. the thing is it is unnerving for govt. supporters to witness this as MR is attempting to come to power. He can't become the president but he is not giving up. So it is somewhat unnatural for Modi to meet MR and his bro Gota.

    Niz Tuesday, 16 May 2017 03:05 PM

    Some media say meeting took place on PM Modis request. So whose news is correct?

    Podi Tuesday, 16 May 2017 03:05 PM

    But they didn't sell Sri Lanka to enemies

    Tom Tuesday, 16 May 2017 03:12 PM

    He now where's it as a sarong

    Saraa Goyya Wednesday, 17 May 2017 01:55 PM

    Read carefully; "Indian HC said, Meeting was held at MR's request." So, who went after whom? Who went down on his knees to beg for a meeting with the PM?

    WISE DONKEY Friday, 12 May 2017 03:37 PM

    More than anything to fill their own purse

    Wedige Friday, 12 May 2017 02:21 PM

    Hope Mr. MR has handed over the BLACK flag from his good friend 'Wimale'.

    Dinga Friday, 12 May 2017 02:24 PM

    These guys do not have any morality.Shame on you.

    max Friday, 12 May 2017 02:25 PM

    CBK might blame govt now for bypass her but MR and GR got the opportunity to meet PM Modi.

    K Perera Friday, 12 May 2017 02:29 PM

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Neetha Senanayake Friday, 12 May 2017 02:31 PM

    MY3 must be really crossed about this.

    Shelly. Friday, 12 May 2017 02:29 PM

    Good of RAJAPAKSAS to meet personally and apologise for hurting the feelings of Indian PM. But what the Prof. got to do there. A blunder. via DM Android App

    Kanthi Friday, 12 May 2017 02:37 PM

    MR, Gota, GL are mature politicians who know how to represent SL interests. We have no fears.

    Ashok Friday, 12 May 2017 03:22 PM

    In SL without the minority votes no party can win.

    AUSLANKA Friday, 12 May 2017 03:27 PM

    Although Indian Premier is named "MODI", he is a very intelligent and productive leader for his country. In that sense most Sri Lankan leaders are real "MODAYAS"

    ceylon Friday, 12 May 2017 02:12 PM

    Last time they represented SL we lost GSP plus and got a Geneva investigation

    Joee Friday, 12 May 2017 04:41 PM

    That's how they have become politicians in our country.We should be blamed to vote then into power.

    Mahinda is a real statesman

    gamini Saturday, 13 May 2017 06:40 AM

    The Indian intelligence services and PM Modi will be aware of the thieving and killing during the tenure of the uneducated uncultured rascals.
