Indian National security advisor Shivshankar Menon today called on chief minister Jayalalithaa, a day after the Tamil Nadu assembly passed a unanimous resolution demanding imposition of economic sanctions against Sri Lanka. Though officials described the meeting as a courtesy call, Menon is understood to have apprised Jayalalithaa on the Centre's action on mitigating sufferings of Sri Lankan Tamils.

Jayalalithaa is understood to have taken up the issue of Indian fishermen being killed or arrested by the Sri Lankan Navy with the national security advisor.

The meeting assumes significance in the wake of the Tamil Nadu assembly passing a resolution on Wednesday, demanding that the Centre impose economic sanctions on Sri Lanka for its alleged killing of Tamils in the island nation.

This is the first top level contact between the Centre and AIADMK government after Jayalalithaa took over as the chief minister.

The resolution had sought imposition of economic sanctions on Sri Lanka by India to 'rein in' Colombo on the Tamils issue and pressed for speedy rehabilitation of displaced Tamils.

It said a UN appointed committee had pointed out alleged excesses committed during the conflict between the armed forces and LTTE, including bombing civilian areas and hospitals. (Press Trust of India)

    I think the Tamil Nadu should separate from India as the first step. Please declare unilateral independence from `north india`.

    Dheen Friday, 10 June 2011 05:04 AM

    Dear Wimal, please do something about this. You can think of something like the UN protest in Colombo.

    Dr.Wimal_Modawansa Friday, 10 June 2011 02:50 AM

    We are not worried.Our great Minister Keheliya Rambukwlla says that they will deal only with the centre.

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 10 June 2011 03:16 AM

    What if “innocent” Praba with his coterie was allowed to escape in the “rescue ship”. No “reigning in” would have been needed as bombs would be still “raining” in south as well as north.

    India! A country had very high influence on Sri Lanka! But it is time for us to unite & stand against this giant. We should allow them to bully us to entertain local politics!

    LOL Friday, 10 June 2011 03:36 AM

    Are you expecting tamils to loose more lives by break the silent?

    LOL Friday, 10 June 2011 03:41 AM

    Priyanka Friday, 10 June 2011 03:47 AM

    Menon's complicity in the crimes against humanity in Sri Lanka should be reminded.

    Dr.Wimal_Modawansa Friday, 10 June 2011 03:56 AM

    LOL Friday, 10 June 2011 03:53 AM
