India’s Involvement in its Political Reform: Sri Lanka Divided

Indian & Srilankan Fishermen Discuss Possibility for Amicable Solution
  • External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s visit to Sri Lanka last week has brought to the fore the question of whether and to what extent India should be involved in the neighbouring country’s constitutional reform process. Ahilan Kadirgamar, political economist based in Jaffna, argues that India should do everything needed to help Sri Lanka draft a new Constitution.
  • However, A.H.M. Fowzie, the State Minister of National Integration and Reconciliation, feels it is not for India to get involved in the Constitution making process.
