[Hindu, Wednesday, 1 February 2012 09:34 No Comment]

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa has a message for Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa: “Take care of our people who go there. Ministers, our relations etc.”

Commenting on the attack on his relative and industrialist, Thirukumar Nadesan, he said that he was attacked only because he was married to Deputy Minister Nirupama Rajapaksa.

“He is a Hindu, he is a Tamil from north not from south…Even the Indian fishermen are protesting [against the attack on him],” the President said, at an interaction with foreign correspondents based here.

Asked if he had a message for the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, he said: “Stop this.”
