SL envoy exceeded his limits: Narayanasamy

2 April 2013 02:59 am - 18     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Objecting to the reported statement of Sri Lankan High Commissioner Prasad Kariyawasam allegedly trying to instigate north Indians against the people of Tamil Nadu, Union Minister of State in PMO V Narayanasamy today said he "has exceeded his limits".

"He (Kariyawasam) has exceeded his limits. He should confine himself to diplomatic work," he told reporters here.

The Minister was replying to a question about Kariyawasam's reported comments that Sinhalese have their origins in most of the northern states of India, which drew protests from MDMK leader Vaiko who contended it was an attempt to instigate the north Indians against Tamils in the country.

Vaiko had in a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh sought criminal prosecution of the Sri Lankan envoy on the charge of 'sedition'.

To a question on Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, Narayanasamy said the production from the first unit would begin soon.

He said false information was being spread among the local villagers that there was a gas leak from the plant.

On the People's Movement Against Nuclear Energy calling for a seige of the plant township over the issue, he said the Centre and state governments would take necessary steps to deal with it. (Source: Business-Standard)

    Raviraj, you are a disgraceful racist and a liar. SL govt. sustained all civilians and also terrorists in the North and East sending food and medicine convoys throughout 30 year war. Even salaries of govt. employees were paid though they did not work for the SL state. Remember it was from the tax-payers' money from rest of the Provinces in SL

    First TN should know their limit and should not get involved in the internal affairs of another country.

    Eelam is always in SL. You cannot just change the name of a region in this world. Can we call the Sri Lanka now as something else?

    Was India creating and financing the LTTE also a humanitarian mission? Food and medicine was sent to the civilians by the SL Govt but it was hijacked by the terrorists who cared a damn for the tamil civilians.

    parippu dropping was an humanitarian mission against a rouge state which had imposed an economic embargo against a section of its own population and was using food as an instrument of war, which itself is a HR violation and war crime

    dear Buffalao citizen, it is your HC in Delhi who is making such jokes

    raviraj Tuesday, 02 April 2013 08:18 AM

    it is certainly an offense for a HC under diplomatic immunity to make such unwarranted political statements in the host country

    hello mr. samy how about a visit to colombo...?

    What a joke to say sinhalese are from North India. It is like an african negro claiming to be from European origin. It is clear that sinhalese are not a homogenous race, but a race that is a mix of many migrations mainly mercenary fighters (thus the warrior names such as Weerasinhe, Jayawardene, Deshapriya) bought down by kings to invade and protect. From physical structure and customs, it is clear that majority are from Dravidian fishing coastal areas such as Kerala. The Reday and Hattay is just part of Kerala clothing and Malayalam writting is similar to sinhala.

    Well said. Proud about u

    Don't know whether he had exceeded his limit or not but what he said is true. For example most Sinhalese prefer to listen to Hindi songs or Bengali songs instead of Tamil songs. Sinhala language too is quite close to Bengali but not to Tamil. via DM Android App

    Hello Mr. Narayanasamy, is it an offence to say that North Indians are our kith and kin ? What do you have to say about India air-dropping Parippu (Dhaal) in Jaffna ?
