[DailyMirror, Friday, 3 February 2012 18:50 No Comment]

The state government of Tamil Nadu is yet to tender an apology to the Sri Lankan authorities over the inconvenience caused by the boycott of certain Sri Lankan products by a state undertaking in Chennai recently, officials said today.

An official of Sri Lanka’s Deputy High Commission in Sri Lanka told the Daily Mirror that one state-run undertaking of Tamil Nadu had boycotted a stock of confectionaries and biscuits manufactured in Sri Lanka.

However, the official said that it was an isolated incident, and therefore, Sri Lanka hoped it would not be repeated.

“This is not even noteworthy when compared to the magnitude of trade in India. The authorities of this company brought the matter to our notice. The total value of our products was Rs.4,000. We raised the issue with the state government of Tamil Nadu. We also informed our mission in New Delhi,” he said.

He said that the incident is not a politically motivated one.

“Only a certain group is involved. We hope it will not be repeated,” he said.
