‘Act tough against Sri Lanka Navy’

Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday urged the Indian government to take a strong stand against Sri Lanka following fresh attacks by its navy on Tamil Nadu fishermen.

Terming the latest attacks by Sri Lankan naval personnel with swords and iron rods, Jayalalithaa said India cannot maintain a ‘a pusillanimous equanimity’ over such repeated attacks. In a letter to PM Manmohan Singh, she said: ‘The latest incident involves the use of swords and iron rods to attack our fishermen, an act that is medieval in its barbarism. ‘India cannot maintain a pusillanimous equanimity in the face of such repeated brazen and uncivilized assaults on innocent fishermen belonging to Tamil Nadu, who are also citizens of India.’
