On objections to Narendra Modi visiting Sri Lanka

Kandy, 12 May, (

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa said in Kandy yesterday that there were objections to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visiting Sri Lanka, but the main objection was against entering into agreements harmful to the country.

Ex-President Rajapaksa made the observation responding to the media when he was present at the Sri Dalada Maligawa to pay homage to the Sacred Tooth Relic.

Rajapaksa however said there might not be signing any agreements during the Indian Premier’s visit this occasion because agreements had already been signed during the Sri Lanka Prime Minister’s visit to India.

His strongest objection was to the privatisation of people’s assets and the sale of national resources to foreigners, the former President said.
