Modi concerned about delays to India's projects in Sri Lanka

India’s Prime Minister has expressed concern over delays to the country’s development projects in Sri Lanka, a press release from the Sri Lankan Prime Minister’s office said.

“Mr. Narendra Modi has expressed his concern over the implementation of Indo-Sri Lanka joint development projects in accordance with the MoU signed between India and Sri Lanka in 2017 … Mr. Modi said he was not satisfied with the response he had received from the Sri Lankan government to his overtures,” said the Sinhala-language release, according to The Hindu.

The two prime ministers held talks on Saturday during Ranil Wickremesinghe’s visit to New Delhi.

Modi and Wickremesinghe were also expected to have discussed the ‘Tamil issue’ including the reconciliation process and devolution of powers to the North-East, the Daily Mirror reports.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
