In a letter to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha Jayaram, has taken exception to reported remarks of BJP Leader Dr. Subramanian Swamy, that he had advised the Sri Lankan government not to release the boats of Tamil Nadu fishermen.
Indian media reported that Jayalalitha Jayaram, pointing to a televised interview of the BJP leader on September 1, wrote, “It is particularly distressing that a senior member of the BJP has in a televised media interview, stated that it was he who advised the Sri Lankan government not to release the boats of Tamil Nadu fishermen”.
While expressing confidence that Swamy’s remarks were not the official views of the BJP or the union government, the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister added that his comments pertaining to the release of Indian fishermen’s boats, were “spoiling the efforts” of the party and the Centre to resolve the problems of fisher folk.
