  1. Very good on her part and better than Lankan dictatorship MR2.
    No north Hindian state has done this from when the first Afghan refugees arrived in the 70’s- the same mughal blood.
    The Hindians can never have their boots on the ground at Afghanistan even though USA has given the green light and gas line contracts to Hindia.While the Chinese are accepted.

  2. Sri Lankan Refugees or Sri Lankan Tamil issue always become the election propaganda in Tamil Nadu politics, and they need the refugees to get their vote and later on forget about their well being. Most of the so called refugees are willing to return, but AMMA would not leave them till the election and kick them off….if she WINS….typical Tamil Nadu rotten politics….
