Gotabaya's Remarks Not Acceptable: Narayanasamy

India today disapproved of a top Sri Lankan official's reported remark about it regarding terrorism in that country, saying the armed conflict there was a result of Colombo denying rights to Tamils there.

Responding to Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa's reported remark that India could never absolve itself of the responsibility for creating terrorism in his country, Union Minister V Narayanasamy said the statement was not acceptable.

"As far as India is concerned (late Prime Ministers) Indira and Rajiv Gandhi supported Tamils. We even lost Rajiv Gandhi (in an assassination by LTTE). He sent Indian Peace Keeping Force to help Tamils. Rajapaksa's statement is unacceptable. Sri Lanka is responsible for terrorism as Tamils took to terrorism because their rights were denied," he told reporters at the airport here.

New Delhi did not support any kind of terrorist activities, he said.

India has a duty to protect Tamils wherever they are and it had pressed for independent and credible investigation into alleged war crimes by Sri Lankan army at the UNHRC, he said.

"Unfortunately, state political parties are concealing that. The truth will come out ultimately," the Minister of State in the PMO added.

He also denied the Centre was not acting on attacks on fishermen from Tamil Nadu by Sri Lankan Navy.

Indian consular officials were immediately asked to work for the release of fishermen arrested by that Navy, he said, adding that talks between fishermen of the two countries could ensure a lasting solution to the matter.

The minister also called for more patrolling of Indian Coast Guard and Naval ships in the area to prevent attacks on local fishermen. (Out Look India)

    Another puppet of Indian government. Parsi Ex-Prime Minister , Rajivi Gandhi deserved what he received from Sinhalese Sailor, world's best guard of honour and last respect from LTTE. Whole Sri Lankans knows double acting foreign policy of India. Using worlds, good offices with Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka is a friend of India and voting against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC. World number one cheaters and hypocrits. They don't know how to talk straight forward. Unfortunately we are not a Nuclear arm nation, see now how Pakistan reacting to India.

    You have no basic knowledge of this Tamil issue..
    So just keep your mouth shut

    Now what does this Indian guy states here? If they want to protect - best way to protect Tamils is make them terrorist and supply arms and funds? Is that correct? From where did he got this ideology. Never heard before in civilized world. Of course US did that to Mujahadeen against Russia. So that place is still burning. Uncivilized bastards.

    For his information we always telling to India,Fiji Islands belongs to Fijians, Zimbabwe belongs to Zimbabweans, Israel belongs to Jews, Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhalese and Tamil Nadu belongs to Tamils. It is same like USA. America rule by white Americans. It was very clear last Presidential Election, white America and Minority America.

    Indian interference has nothing to do with the rights of Tamils! Tamils are merely a tool for GoI & RAW. Root cause of the ethnic problem goes back to 1956. India didn't care until SL went pro-US. India (RAW) supported & funded nationalists, extremists, racists against Ranil in 2004 & 2005 because Mr. RW was highly pro-US. It was the GoI in one case and Vaiko in another who destroyed the last chance of mediated , monitored surrender of the LTTE in 2009. India is nothing more than self serving bully/butcher. Lets see how India deals with interference in the near future especially "Resolution 47" on J&K.

    Cool Dude Saturday, 13 April 2013 09:08 AM

    Indian RAW trained and armed LTTE. Which India cannot deny. No matter how much foul play it cries. It wanted Sri Lanka not to grow and become Economic Super Power in Indian Ocean, It wanted the country to stay below it. What Russia did to China, China did to India, India did to Pakistan and Sri Lanaka.

    Narayanasamy is another stupid South Indian who is blinded by
    emotions. Was he born yesterday to forget what Indira Ghandi,
    Rajiv , Dixit and the lot did to destabilize Sri Lanka with that
    murderous fisherman smuggler terrorist Prabhakaran. What
    is Narayanasamy compared to our Gotabhaya who saved
    our motherland. Bulathsinhala

India didn't care until SL went pro-US. India (RAW) supported & funded nationalists, extremists, racists (including JVP, JHU, etc) against Ranil in 2004 & 2005 because Mr. RW was highly pro-US.

India is nothing more than self serving bully, butcher regional thug. Lets see how India deals with its own interference in the near future especially "Resolution 47" on J&K. BBS is actually following the lead of BJP, Shiv-Sena plus Narendra Modi and gang who slaughtered thousands of Muslims. The inspiration of SL anti-muslim extremists are strangely enough Indian extremists & butchers.

    Narayansamy up yours man. Have you ever been to Sri Lanka to make such a blanket statement about Sri Lanka? Talk is cheap Narayansamy.

    truth Saturday, 13 April 2013 05:23 AM

    He is right. What else is the real fundermental cause of terrorism in Sri Lanka?

    Sammy Saturday, 13 April 2013 04:50 PM

    @Asoka racist guys like you are the cause of problems in Sri Lanka.

    moda pissa Saturday, 13 April 2013 04:52 PM

    Your Tamilnadu politicians poking their dirty fingers in Sri Lankan affairs are not acceptable either, Narayanasamy !

    lal Saturday, 13 April 2013 02:08 AM

    LTTE were given military training, weapons, money by the Indian military and the Indian government. That is fact. To deny that this man has to be a liar. In any case it was Tamil terrorism that got gott of R. Gandhi. Is that correct Minister N? And good riddance.

    Protecting citizens in a country whether one is ethinic tamil,moor,or Sinhala is the primary duty of the government & not that of another country.
    Narayanaswamy is trying to be the international policemen on ethinic basis rather than do his duty by his own country cizens.
    Politics based on ethinicity shoud be outlawed internationally.

    Nodrog Saturday, 13 April 2013 03:13 AM

    Don't worry about him. Now that he got his 2 minutes of free publicity he'll shut up and by tomorrow would have forgotten about lankan tamils.

    raviraj Saturday, 13 April 2013 12:31 PM

    agree with your first statement, but GOSL had failed to do that exactly, hence the Indian interference
    regarding your atatement on outlawing ethnic based politics, if you arereally sincere about it, why not start with the JHU

    raviraj Saturday, 13 April 2013 12:31 PM

    if you think Israel belongs only to Jews, why is your govt.supporting the Plaestine cause?

    Kiwi Monday, 15 April 2013 03:04 AM

    Mighty Sri Lanka can do without puny India and the others.

    Sammy Saturday, 13 April 2013 03:51 AM

    Morale support for rights is one thing but overtly or covertly supporting armed conflict in another country is another matter. It was clearly evident that India turned a blind eye to the LTTE and other armed groups training in Tamil Nadu, despite appeals from Sri Lanka. The Rajiv Gandhi assasination was a back fire and IPKF presence a virtual imposition.
