Close down the Indian Consular Offices in Jaffna and Hambantota immediately

Dr. Sudath Gunasekara Mahanuwara 

I draw the serious and prompt attention of the Government to the following news item and take immediate action first, to stop this subversive interference on the part of the Indian Government in our domestic affairs and second, to disband the Indian Sub-Office immediately before their activities become a headache to us.

News item

Divaina 11.3 reports the Raw is spying on the Election programmes of Gota and Sajit. It is said that this is being done by Indian Consular Offices in Jaffna and Hambantota

This is clear interference uncalled for on our internal matters and sovereignty by a foreign country.  In this context I suggest the Government take immediate action not only to stop this interference immediately but also simultaneously close down these two consular Offices forthwith. I also suggest that the Government also take action to close down the Indian assistant Commissioners Office in Kandy as well, as it also has ceased to serve the objectives for which it was opened in 1949, as I have pointed out previously as well that there is no point of having so many Indian Embassy offices all over the country, unless India has some subversive design behind it. The danger of having so many Indian Embassy Offices in this small Island which I pointed out long ago is now clearly confirmed by this action of the Raw reported in tomorrow’s Divaina.

Therefore taking this incident as a proof of what I said before I urge the Government immediately disband the regional Offices before India creates more problems to u

I am sure the Indian Embassy in Colombo can attend to diplomatic activities between the two countries without these appendages all over the country.
