‘Honouring a government for mass murder’ - Vaiko slams Indian aid to Sri Lanka

Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vaiko has slammed the Indian governments announcement that it will provide over $450 in credit for development and security despite concerns over the newly appointed Sri Lankan president’s human rights record.

"In order to maintain ties with Gotabaya Rajapaksa's government, Narendra Modi's government has sacrificed sentiments of Tamil people,” said Vaiko. “This is shocking.”

He went on to add,

“Without understanding the atrocities committed on the Tamils, the Prime Minister is helping the Sri Lankan Government. It is akin to honouring a government for mass murder.” 

Earlier last week, Vaiko staged a protest against the visit of the Sri Lankan leader.
