President Mahinda Rajapaksa has invited Northern Province Chief Minister C. Wigneswaran to join the delegation which would leave for Delhi to attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi, Government Information Department said.  

The ceremony will take place Monday (May 26) evening in New Delhi. President Rajapaksa received an invitation earlier this week to participate in this event.

President Rajapaksa’s attendance was formally confirmed yesterday (May 22) through diplomatic channels and also via the President’s official Twitter account (@PresRajapaksa) this morning.

The President was one of the first world leaders to call Mr. Modi to congratulate him on his party’s landslide victory earlier this month. Soon after the call, Mr. Modi responded with a tweet to thank President Rajapaksa for his call: “It was wonderful speaking to you earlier today. I look forward to strong relations between Sri Lanka & India.”

In the phone call to Mr. Modi, President Rajapaksa expressed that the Government looks forward to working with the new administration to further strengthen relations between the two countries.

    Doesn't he has the right to decline the invitation?? #Respect his right.

    Please don't go with MR. He is accused of war crimes.

    Sumith Friday, 23 May 2014 06:38 AM

    So MR is going to another Sri Lankan air lines full of tourists to visit Modi.-:)

    You have selected very suitable name for you.

    kumar Friday, 23 May 2014 06:50 AM

    The invitation is only for MR as a Leader of a country. But seems like he wanted to go with full delegations as usual.

    ind Friday, 23 May 2014 07:02 AM

    What's wrong with that. It's a good move. This is how building up relationship. Most of people always see only the negative side of everything.

    MR wants to hide behind Wigneswaran in India. "What An Idea Saet Jee". How many are going with you on shopping, Sir?

    Right trump card at right time!

    Don't want to have any talk in home country with CM of NP and treat the post holder with contempt and asking him to go to India is silly

    Vigneswarean is shrewd enough to understand whether the ball is a googly.

    Chatura Friday, 23 May 2014 01:24 PM

    I think Vigneshwaran should go. This will be a very good move. We have to act like Sri Lankans. All the ethnic groups been cheated by dirty politicians. We all have to get together and fight for our rights. I personally believe Prabakaran and Pottu Amman are people to win by GOSL. if both of them serve Sri Lanka as true Sri Lankan we would have more powerful influential country than Israel. India became powerful due to their unity though they got 1000 of reason be separate states. this is the high time to stand someone who can build Sri Lankan Nation. if we scattered to ethnic groups we will achieve nothing as a country. via DM Android App

    The majority of India who voted for Modi are happy about Rajapakse's visit.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 23 May 2014 08:20 AM

    Exactly true.

    Thomas Friday, 23 May 2014 08:32 AM

    MR, please take with you , the Tamil Cabinet Ministers Douglous, Karuna, and the other arms dealer KP , he can sell arms to India.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 23 May 2014 08:33 AM

    And Karuna and Dougalas too. They belong to the same feather.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 23 May 2014 08:36 AM

    Is building up relationship is to disallow innocent civilians of the north not to have death anniversaries or peform religeos rites for their dead family members? So this is positive and when Vigneswaran refuses to go, conveniently that is negative. For this you will have to find a puppy dog.

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 23 May 2014 08:37 AM

    Truth is bitter.

    kumar Friday, 23 May 2014 08:45 AM

    Before inviting Vigneshwaran and talking about unity, at least the central should allow the NPC to function properly.

    samarethunge Friday, 23 May 2014 08:45 AM

    He is full of symbolic gestures and charm. No substance.

    Norman you are right. These are rules regulations and etiquettes followed by statement who respect diplomatic nuances. Where else in the world do they hosts criminals thugs Fraudsters and opportunists in the abode of the highest in the country. Lankawey apey lankawey. via DM iPad app
