Don’t supply ships to SL: DMK and PMK

The DMK and the PMK on Friday opposed the reported move of the Central to supply two naval warships to Sri Lanka by 2017-18, to strengthen the island nation’s capabilities to guard its maritime boundaries.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi, writing for the party organ ‘Murasoli’, said the Centre’s move had strengthened the oft-repeated charge that New Delhi had been helping Colombo, ignoring the interests of the Tamils and Indian fishermen. He asked the Centre to give up this plan immediately.

Meanwhile, PMK founder S Ramadoss said the Centre’s decision had caused pain to the people of TN since New Delhi’s offer had come at a time when the Lankan Tamils were suffering and attacks on Indian fishermen continued.

  He said there was no threat to Lanka since India was the only neighbouring country and Indian Navy looks after the safety in seafront.  There are reasons to be apprehensive that the warships would be used against TN fishermen.(The New Indian Express)

    Good riddance. Sri Lanka is well known for ship building and repairing.

    You can give those 2 ships for your rogues for poaching in Sri Lanka's water. Lets buy from China or Israel or some other country. No problem Mr Karunanidhi!

    Dear Karuna(not)nidhi,

    you can keep the vessels and guard your nation. May be you can protect your fishermen with the help of those two vessels. We dont need anything from you guys, cos we now know that you are not friends of our country. you guys always wanted a devided Sri lanka. We will not allow that.

    we never asked ships from india. we are already thinking why india wants to give us war ships when it can feed millions of poor people in india with that money.

    WHAT AN IDIOT, He is telling India is guarding the lankan boundaries, Sri lankans can relax and sleep.

    SL Saturday, 07 September 2013 07:08 AM

    keep those and use those to avoid your fishermen trespassing into Sri Lankan waters.
