* Sri Lankan nationalist collective protests against Tamil Nadu CM and Indian PM
Tue, Jun 10, 2014, 10:06 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 10, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Sinhala nationalist Collective of National Organizations today held a demonstration outside the Indian High Commission in Colombo against the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for India's intervention in Sri Lanka's internal matters.

Hundreds of nationalists protested against Jayalalithaa's demand to bring a UN resolution against Sri Lanka on alleged genocide of Tamils and to hold a referendum in the Northern Province to establish a Tamil Eelam.

The protesters condemned the Chief Minister's pressure on Indian government to act against Sri Lanka and India's undue influence on Sri Lanka to implement the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

They charged that Jayalalithaa was acting at the behest of the anti-Sri Lankan powers in the West.

The protestors later burnt an effigy of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. The huge effigy of Jayalalithaa wore a set of cow horns on its head.

Jayalalithaa during her meeting with the new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanded that India should sponsor a UN resolution against Sri Lanka condemning the alleged genocide of Tamil people in the island and to hold to account all those responsible for the genocide to render justice to Tamils.

Sri Lanka strongly objected to the Jayalalithaa's allegation of 'genocide' of Tamil people to describe the end of terrorism in the country and said it will make a formal objection to the Indian government over her remark.

Sri Lanka however, is hopeful that the new Indian government would be free of her influence as Jayalalithaa does not have the same influence on New Delhi as she had on the previous central Indian government.
