TNA MP hails Prabhakaran as leader, Modi as role model

“My leader is Velupillai Prabhakaran, but my political model is Modi,” said the Tamil National Alliance MP form the Jaffna district, speaking to the New Indian Express on Friday.

Commenting on how the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi’s trip to Jaffna had inspired him, MP Sritharan said,

“it’s his clear thinking , sense of mission and his rise from the very bottom of the social ladder to the very top.”

Adding that India needed a stable Jaffna for its own security, Mr Sritharan said,

“Given geopolitical realities, we cannot solve our problems without India’s help, and India needs us for its own security. India needs a peaceful Jaffna because Jaffna is like the fuse of an explosive that can shatter South India.”
