Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa today hoped that India will soon regain its rights over the Katchatheevu island that was ceded to Sri Lanka in 1974.

In her Independence Day speech in Chennai, Jayalalithaa also said that her government was taking steps to protect people from inflation due to the central government's wrong economic policies.

"I have faith in re-establishing our rights in Katchatheevu," she said after unfurling the national flag at the state secretariat Fort St. George.

This year, the Tamil Nadu assembly passed a resolution urging the central government to revoke the Katchatheevu transfer agreement.

The chief minister declared that Tamil Nadu will keep the public distribution system (PDS) going in order to address issues related to the poor.

Independence Day was celebrated across the state as district collectors unfurled the tricolour. In many schools, students turned out early in the morning with mini national flags pinned on their uniforms. (IANS)

    Some people who comments here don't have brain I suppose. In 1974 , India recognized the Sri Lankan ownership to the island on a conditional agreement. These days Sri Lankan rulers are talking about repealing the 13th amendment in contrary to the Indo-Sri Lanka Peace Treaty which was signed in 1987. If you guys can't respect an agreement with another country and can't keep promises they also no need to respect any agreement with Sri Lanka. They have all the rights to carryout another humanitarian operation in Sri Lanka.

    Does she have enough toilets for the people who will inhabit the stinking place? Maybe she will donate some of her ugly sarees instead.

    Sri Lanka is surrounded by sixty one islets and islands that belong to her. If Katchacheevu is taken back then build a naval base as close to that Island as possible and renege on any agreements with India that Colombo sees detrimental to Sri Lanka
