* India must enter into constructive dialogue with Sri Lanka - Janatha Party leader
Wed, May 21, 2014, 11:25 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

May 21, New Delhi: India's Janatha Party leader Subramanian Swamy has called on the incoming central government to closely cooperate with Sri Lanka to counter terrorism in the region, especially the threat from the Islamic fundamentalists from Pakistan.

"India must enter into constructive dialogue with Sri Lanka and on counter-terror strategy in the sub-continent particularly in view of the fact that many Pakistani trained Islamic fundamentalists from Sri Lanka are sneaking into India to carry out terrorist attack in Tamil Nadu," Swamy said in a statement.

On the 23rd death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, who was assassinated by LTTE, Swamy, a strong supporter of Sri Lanka, lauded the Sri Lankan government for completely wiping out the militant group from the island nation, Press Trust of India reported.

"Today the nation should compliment the Government of Sri Lanka for completely decimating the LTTE and destroying their organization."

He also called for counter-terror strategies in the sub-continent against the backdrop of the recent train blasts in in Chennai Railway Station in which one was killed and over a dozen injured.
