[b]Dr. Swamy cautions Mahinda Rajapakse not to delay promised unilateral implementation of quasi–Federal constitution.[/b]

[b]Chennai, 01 December, (Asiantribune.com):[/b] Dr. Subramanian Swamy, Leader of the India’s Janata Party, while welcoming the joint statement issued by the Government of India and Sri lanka at the conclusion of Mahinda Rajapakse’s visit to India, has also cautioned the Sri Lanka’s President that he cannot adopt any ploy to delay any more the unilateral implementation of the promise to replace the present unitary constitution with an Indian type quasi-federal constitution.

Dr. Swamy said: "The communiqué? reflects India's cautious and calibrated response to the request of the Sri Lanka Government for aid and assistance."

Janata Party leader claimed that he was informed by "knowledgeable sources" that extradition of the LTTE leader Prabhakaran was also raised in the discussion between the two leaders (Dr. Manmohan Singh and Mr. Rajapakse), though it did not figure in the public declaration.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy emphasized: "It must be made clear to the Sri Lanka Government that in the name of peace talks, they cannot use that as a ploy to delay any more the unilateral implementation of their promise to replace the present unitary constitution with an Indian type quasi-federal constitution."
