Sri Lankan dignitaries visits will be informed to TN – PM

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday assured Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa that the state government would be informed about the visits of Sri Lankan VIPS and other dignitaries in advance.

“I am asking our authorities to bear your views in mind when they handle such visits in future and to share such information as they may have about such visits with the government of Tamil Nadu beforehand,” Singh said in a letter to Jayalalithaa.

Singh’s response follows Jayalalithaa’s letter to him on March 7, where she had asked the Centre to “discourage” frequent visits of Lankan VIPs to the state as the people were “greatly exercised” over the island government’s conduct on the Tamils issue. She had also said the Sri Lankan VIPs be allowed to the state only after consulting the state.
