Chennai, Sept. 16 (ANI): Members of the Young Tamil Nadu Movement (YTNM) staged a protest here on Wednesday against Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s visit to India.
Supporters of the Chennai-based group showed banners and raised slogans against Wickremesinghe.
One of the protestors demanded that the Indian Government should snap all economic, political and cultural ties with Sri Lanka.
“We strongly condemn the reception given to Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. For the past six years after the Mullivaikal massacre, all Tamils across the world have been demanding all states to boycott Sri Lanka in all terms. The Indian Government should end its economic, political and cultural ties with them,” he said.
“The Tamil Nadu Assembly has also passed a resolution demanding the Indian Government to cut its economic ties with Sri Lanka. The Indian Government is ignoring our demands for the last six years,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu Assembly has adopted a resolution seeking international probe against the Sri Lankan Government on alleged war crimes against the Tamils.
Wickremesinghe arrived in the national capital earlier on Monday on a three-day bilateral visit.
This is Wickremesinghe’s first official international visit after assuming the Prime Minister’s office last month. (ANI)
