Jayalalitha asks Delhi to control ‘rogue elements’

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalitha has asked the government of India to assert itself and urge the Sri Lankan government to reign in ‘rogue elements’ in its navy.

In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh she said:

"I strongly feel the government of India should assert itself with the Sri Lankan government to control the rogue elements in the Sri Lanka Navy who continue to (physically) assault our innocent fishermen."

"The continued occurrences of such incidents has created a feeling of insecurity among the fishermen community and despair over the apparent inaction of the government of India to prevent such attacks despite our repeated requests,"
