The Indian High Commission has categorically denied speculative reports in the media and on social media about India sending troops to Sri Lanka.
“These reports and such views are also not in keeping with the position of the Government of India” Indian High Commission said responding to media reports over the comments made by senior Indian politician Subramanian Swamy.
Subramanian Swamy had suggested sending the Indian Military to support Rajapaksa family in Sri Lanka.
“Both Gotabaya and Mahinda Rajapaksha were elected in a free election with a thumping majority. How can India allow a mob to overturn such a legitimate election?” he questioned on Twitter.
“Then no democratic country in our neighborhood will be safe. If Rajapaksa wants India’s military help we must give” he added.
