Indian Government had allowed Sri Lankan Air Force personnel to undergo training in Tamil Nadu, but at present none of them are being trained in the state, government told the Rajya Sabha today.

In a written reply to a question, Defence Minister A K Antony said, "At present no personnel of the Sri Lankan Air Force is undergoing training in Tamil Nadu."

The Minister replied in the affirmative on whether government had allowed Sri Lankan Air Force personnel to undergo training in Tamil Nadu.

The training of the Lankan personnel by India came in the line of fire from political parties in Tamil Nadu over the issues of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka.

The Defence Minister further informed the House that, "The views expressed by various (political) parties have been considered by the government keeping in view all aspects of national interest."

Following the protest from various political parties, the under-training Lankan personnel were shifted to Bangalore.

Around 15 Sri Lankan trainees were undergoing various courses at the two airmen training institutions in Tambaram in Tamil Nadu when the controversy broke off. (PTI)

    Stop sending our guys to India who is slowly becoming a stooge of the US. Pakistan, China & Russia will welcome us with open arms.

    Saskia Thursday, 09 August 2012 07:43 AM

    Again a comment out of ignorance. Indian central government needs TN for forming a government.

    Saskia Thursday, 09 August 2012 08:02 AM

    Why you Srilankans always talk about war and revenge? How can you then do the reconsiliation?

    Bushel Thursday, 09 August 2012 01:49 AM

    Why can't train in China?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 09 August 2012 02:22 AM

    Tamil Nadu dictating terms to central government is just like "tail wagging the dog"

    sach Thursday, 09 August 2012 03:18 AM

    so why are u barking here, tell that to india

    SL Thursday, 09 August 2012 03:55 AM

    No worries, we can send the guys to Pakistan, China. Then the TN jokers cry foul.

    Death Metal 4ever Thursday, 09 August 2012 09:12 AM

    well said brother.

    Death Metal 4ever Thursday, 09 August 2012 09:21 AM

    Still better than crappy India....stop living in a hypothetical world you nonce.

    Sammy Thursday, 09 August 2012 03:45 AM

    Sangeeth - Pakistan can afford to be a perceived good friend because they are located far away from SL and have not proximity issues. Wonder how it would have been if they were next door neighbours to SL. There would have been different kind of terrorists at its door step.

    alex Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:26 AM

    why can't you train your airmen yourself, always creating problems for India and talking of China and Pakistan
    SL policy seems to be anyone gives anything free, we will be there to take it.
    And after all these there are elements in the Sl govt. who claim we won the war without anyone's assistance.
    Ask MR to go in front of the Indian media and say that instead of saying to the gallery in front of a home crowd

    Jambalaya Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:30 AM

    Dont take much notice of TN as barking dogs wont bite. As long as the centre is is OK with GOSL we need not worry.

    lal Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:38 AM

    Why send our boys for training in that dirty, squalid state of TN or, anywhere in India? India has stabbed Sri Lanka in the back! Our friends China, Russia and Pakistan have better trained air force pilots and superior technology. Chinese forces are capable of demolishing India and cut it into dozen pieces. To hell with Singh, Sonia, Jayalalita and Karunanidhi.

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:51 AM

    Our Forces defeated the LTTE, something the IPKF could not do. So maybe India should be coming here for training?

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:56 AM

    Even if its only a small gesture we should in one way or another show our displeasure to India about this indecent treatment of our personnel.

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:20 AM

    Did you ever think that maybe the Chinese and Russian trainers would be able to speak in English?

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 04:58 AM

    Actually our guys went there to train the Indian forces....we were doing it for free.

    Nodrog Thursday, 09 August 2012 10:24 AM

    Isn't this a case of the tail wagging the head? Just because TN has the clout does not make everything they do politically or morally correct.

    Saskia Wednesday, 08 August 2012 05:17 PM

    It is not enough. No training should be given anywhere in India.

    Saman Thursday, 09 August 2012 05:39 AM

    SLAF is better off this way!

    Sangeeth Wednesday, 08 August 2012 06:17 PM

    Srilankan Air Force personals should be trained in Pakistan, why go for India, Pakistan Airforce still Top 20 in the world, Pakistan is always our longlast friend , not fake friend like India

    roger Thursday, 09 August 2012 05:55 AM

    Didn't you ever think of the language issue in China and Russia that's why we don't go for training ( Specially technical Skills )

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 09 August 2012 06:07 AM

    Why dont you do that without talking?

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 09 August 2012 06:28 AM

    Typical level of ignorance and comment from the level of a three wheel driver.

    C. Fernando Thursday, 09 August 2012 06:30 AM

    Let the Indians Come to Sri Lanka and learn how to over come Terrorist.
    We no longer need Indian training.

    kumar Thursday, 09 August 2012 07:01 AM

    Do you really think that China will do everything for you?

    Sangeeth Thursday, 09 August 2012 07:03 AM

    Pakistan Airforce always proved more efficient and stronger Air Force, Our pilots can learn a lot from Pakistan, not from Defeated Indian Airforce
