s_ramadoss_1_67497_200 Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) founder-leader S Ramadoss today said India should change its approach towards the Sri Lankan Tamils issue in the backdrop of Pakistan and China establishing their bases in the island, posing security threat to India.

Talking to newspersons at his Thailapuram residence here, the PMK leader, whose party is a constituent of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre, said India should change its attitude and take immediate steps to ensure ceasefire in Lanka, considering its security in future.

Recalling President Pratiba Patil’s call for ceasefire in Lanka, while addressing the joint session of Parliament, he said it was not enough if India asked Lanka to stop the war, but should order the island government to declare ceasefire.

Otherwise, India should recall its technocrates, its war ships and stop suppplying military and other assistance to the Lankan government.

India should change its attitude towards the Tamils issue as the Lankan government was moving closer to India’s Pakistan and China, which were not a friendly” to India.

While China was setting up its naval base and building a full-fledged port in the northern region, Pakistan was supplying arms and its ISI was jointly working with the Lankan intelligence agency.
