Indian EA minister to lunch with SL governor, meet CM designate in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 October 2013, 14:30 GMT]
New Delhi Establishment’s External Affairs Minister, Mr Salman Kurshid will be on an official visit to Jaffna on Tuesday. He will have a lunch meeting with the SL Governor in Jaffna and a ‘bilateral’ meeting with the Chief Minister of North, said a press note by Suresh K Menon of the Consulate General of India in Jaffna. New Delhi’s High Commissioner in Colombo, Mr Yashwardhan Sinha and senior officials of the MEA will accompany the minister. The programme is scheduled to end with the New Delhi minister meeting Indian journalists in a hotel room in Jaffna.

The External Affairs Minister’s programme also includes visiting an Indian housing project at Thellippazhai and distributing certificates for the beneficiaries of the housing project and Indian-assisted small business enterprises.

Thellippazhai borders the so-called High Security Zone, now converted into a Sinhala Military Zone, where both Colombo and New Delhi have long-term partnership programmes.

The Indian-assisted housing at Thellippazhai could never be a compensation for New Delhi’s complicity in genocidal Colombo erasing out scores of traditional Tamil villages in the Palaali-KKS tract to create a permanent region for the occupying Sinhala military, Tamil activists for alternative politics commented in Jaffna.

Political observers noted the usage, ‘bilateral’ meeting, phrased by the Indian Consulate General in Jaffna, for the meeting between the Indian External Affairs Minister and the Chief Minister of the NPC, who will still be only CM designate at the scheduled time of the meeting.

New Delhi attempts to simulate such verbal images for a hollow, substance-less and guarantee-less process, to hoodwink public opinion in Jaffna and Tamil Nadu, and to orchestrate opinion through the corporate media in India, the observers commented.
