The Indian Consul General in Jaffna said that India was closely monitoring the Northern Provincial Council elections.

Addressing a media conference on Monday, Consul General V. Mahalingam said they hoped the elections, held after the lapse of many years would be conducted in a free and fair manner.

“If there is any violence, the Elections Commission should take necessary action. We will observe the situation. We are also closely monitoring the elections,” he said.

“Sri Lanka’s External Affairs Minister G. L. Peiris was in India to extend India’s invitation for the forthcoming CHOGM. During his visit, he also discussed the 13th Amendment with Indian Prime Minister,” he said.(S. K. Prasath)

    Mr Mahalingam, perhaps you don't know there was a guy called Gladston from UK and what happened to him when he tried to monitor elections during Mr Premadasa. I think you deserve a guard of honour too. via DM Android App
