Lankan envoy should be recalled: CPI
New Delhi: CPI on Thursday rejected the apology rendered by Sri Lanka`s High Commissioner to India on his remarks about alleged connection between some Tamil parliamentarians and LTTE and demanded he be withdrawn by his government immediately.
Party National Secretary D Raja termed the remarks by High Commissioner Prasad Kariyawasam as a "gross interference in the internal affairs" of the country, particularly the work of Indian parliament.
"The matter is so serious that the envoy`s apology is not acceptable. In fact, the government of India should take it up with all seriousness and demand that Sri Lankan government call back him from Delhi," Raja said.
The envoy apologised for his comments alleging "friendship" betweeen some members of AIADMK, DMK and MDMK and LTTE which, he said, should be investigated by New Delhi.
Raja, who met External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, told him that the government should take a serious view of the matter.
