PM's CHOGM skip was a shock treatment- India

While claiming that only the Congress-led government can take care of Sri Lankan Tamils, Union Finance Minister P.Chidambaram Saturday said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's decision to skip the CHOGM in Colombo was correct and it was like a shock treatment.
 
Speaking at a meeting in Chennai, Chidambaram said sending External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid to attend the CHOGM was also correct as dialogue should continue with the island nation, he added.

Taking a dig at the denial of US visa to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Chidambaram said Sri Lanka too can deny visa to Indian officials and ministers.

Refuting the propaganda in the state that the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) central government had not done much for the Lankan Tamils, Chidambaram said the Indian government has spent around Rs.1,200 crore for the welfare of Tamils in the island nation.

He said the Congress party wants strict implementation of the 13th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution that promised devolution of powers to Tamils. He also said Congress wants impartial probe on the killings of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.(IANS)

    flatwhite if you are a hero for SL, why don't you go to TN and confront them instead of just hiding in a cave mate.

    Yash Sunday, 01 December 2013 11:25 AM

    india is supposed to close the oil unit in sl long before and IOL announced losses on 2011 and 2013 but they run only due to maintain relationship with sl, otherwise what are the other oil company will serve? y dont you go for china oil? its substandard and spoil all ur vehicles

    Sammy Sunday, 01 December 2013 05:56 AM

    No one even felt the so called shock treatment, except perhaps those in TN, as this was expected to happen.

    Pasel Sunday, 01 December 2013 01:17 AM

    May you are right. SL didn't feel the shock treatment and that is the reason Gotabaya visited to India to get the shock treatment directly

    Baba Sunday, 01 December 2013 11:57 AM

    Well said sir! Give us more shock treatment.

    an s !!!kith udugama Monday, 02 December 2013 06:15 AM

    Yes your previous Govt also spent lot of money training tamil tigers in India which scores of innocent people prayed dead from that cow Prabhakaran.

    Percy Sunday, 01 December 2013 03:52 AM

    priya Monday, 02 December 2013 08:07 AM

    Chidambarm are gone mad. Shock from Manmohan Sing ???
    Who cares. We are very happy now. Because no damn Indian can open his mouth for any matter in our country. He did a mistake of not visiting Sri Lanka. He was scared to Jaya.... What a shame on you. You are worse than a women.

    how about shock treatment to chithambaram.. closing the indian oil company..

    Giann Monday, 02 December 2013 04:28 AM

    What a joke. India is still recovering from all the shocks it got for not attending the summit. They are feeling the pains of isolation. The Indian PM better have a damn good reason for visiting SL now other than for simply shaking the Northern CM's hand.

    an s !!!kith udugama Sunday, 01 December 2013 05:11 AM

    Our people missed that cute walk and the dynamite butt.

    an s !!!kith udugama Sunday, 01 December 2013 05:18 AM

    Aawoth wedak denaka Galle pace ekay.

    Suq Madique Sunday, 01 December 2013 10:10 AM

    India was the one that got shocked because CHOGM went off so well and without a hitch in spite of some nosey-parkers putting their noses where they didn't belong. Many countries came expecting the worse but saw first-hand the development work completed and being carried out and things were nothing like what the tamil diaspora falsely proclaimed. And now the Indians can't stand it.

    Mohamed Saturday, 30 November 2013 06:30 PM

    what the.. shock treatment are you trying to give us? go men we don't care about you idiots and we don't need your help either. Is your Manmohan now trying to re-correct his mistake and trying to imitate David Cameron?
