Indian Prime ministerial BJP candidate Narendra Modi accused the Congress Government of being weak when it came to handle relations with India’s neighbors and said India was being troubled by Sri Lanka, China, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

“Small nations are pressuring India and no one is listening to us. It is the weak government which is responsible for this state of affairs. We belong to a noble country but unfortunately India is being troubled by Sri Lanka, China,Bangladesh and Pakistan. If India is strong then our neighbours will also be friendly towards us,” the foreign media reported Mr. Modi as having said at a mega rally in Chennai yesterday.

Referring to the crucial issue of Tamil Nadu fishermen Mr. Modi told the rally that these fishermen were facing a major problem.

He said Indian fishermen were detained in Sri Lankan jails.“If the Government had even a little concern for the poor then the condition of the fishing community in Tamil Nadu would be different,” Mr. Modi said.

    Who say there are no toilets in in many parts of Sri Lanka? Every house has 5 star hotel type toilets. But toilets are used for other purposes.

    how will they get respect from their neighbors when they take off on arrival visa for their neighbors and try to interfere in local matters of their neighbors ?

    "If India is strong then our neighbours will also be friendly towards us." Do you think so? Look at China for example.

    Don't you know that there are no toilets in many parts of Sri Lanka too. But, do you know the CEO of Microsoft, the richest corporation in the world, is Satya Nadella, an Indian, born, grew up and graduated in India? Don't talk your toilet stories. You will get indigestion.

    Seems the Indian bullies are feeling the pressure.

    sach Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:02 AM

    Weerasinghe Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:55 AM

    Anyway SL is not promoting terrorism in your country.

    athula Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:54 AM

    This guy is anti Muslim. He has stated that Muslims don't allow Hinduism in their countries. He don't think Muslims should be given equal rights because Muslims don't give any rights to Hindus or Buddhists in those countries.

    chams Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:46 AM

    After all he is alos another cunning, politician!!

    Lima Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:46 AM

    THIS GUY HAS BLOOD IN HIS HANDS , RESPONSIBLE FOR 2000 PEOPLE MASSACRE IN GUJURAT , NOW ACTING LIKE A SAINT , WHERE IS CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST HIM AND GIVE THE JUDGEMENT TO HANG HIM , IF BANGLADESH CAN HANG LEADERS WHO COMMITTED CRIMES FOR 150 PEOPLE WHY CANNOT WE HANG THIS ALLEGED MURDERER WHO KILLED 2000 PEOPLE , WHERE IS THE LAW , WHERE IS INTERNATIONAL COURT

    Modi Moodu Vaaya Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:23 AM

    Hey, you want other countries to listen to you? don't think SL would bend to anyone, if someone treat us friendly then we will also treat them in the same way and vise versa. We know you very well and what's your target. Don't try to take advantage from the fishermen issues, why is that your fishermen are still poaching towards our territories if you are really concerned about our north Tamils?

    kandykolla Sunday, 09 February 2014 07:08 AM

    Noble country..!! he..he..he.... First build toilets for your nation and teach toilet manners to your people. One day you will face the Hague for leading the massacre in Gujrat.
