‘PM will be apprised of issues relating to SL’

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be apprised of the objections raised by political parties in Tamil Nadu to India’s plan to supply warships to Sri Lanka and his participation in the Commonwealth Head of Governments Meeting in Colombo, union minister V Narayanasamy said on Tuesday.

‘Political parties from Tamil Nadu have opposed India’s plan to supply warships to Sri Lanka. DMK chief M Karunanidhi has opposed it. Congress (TNCC) has also spoken on the matter. I will bring them to the attention of the Prime Minister,’ he told reporters here.

DMK and other parties have opposed India’s plans to supply two warships to Sri Lanka, contending that such a move would in no way benefit Indian fishermen and sought withdrawal of the proposal.
