Sri Lanka’s Sinhala Buddhist party wants India sidelined

Sri Lanka government coalition party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) says it is preparing to present a set of proposals to the government in order to overcome the national and international challenges arisen following the resolution passed against Sri Lanka at Geneva.

A special feature of the set of seven point set of proposals is related to foreign policy and JHU urges the government to consider India yet another foreign country in the region, expecting a clear deviation from the present stance of considering India the regional power or the big brother.

JHU media spokesman Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe stated that the seven point set of proposals will be handed in the President Mahinda Rajapakse shortly.

Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe said that the JHU points include the need of safeguarding the unity of the country, safeguarding sovereignty and dignity of the country, consolidation of national security especially in north and east, changing the foreign service, finding new markets instead of depending on US and European countries and considering India only as another country in the region
