Of course who does not like to support next door neighbor, when they have a a week puppet leader ship.
SL has become India’s lap-dog and this is not a surprise.
Does this man that the indian government never supported sri lankan policies. In fact they did little to brin about peace in sri lanka expect to foment more divisio, India had troops in the north as peace keepers for about 3 years during which time war of attrition escalated and eventually forced to pull out. In nepal the thimpu initiative failed altogether and finally P and his gang backed the assasination of Gandhi. Even now a minority is creating problems in sri lanka in the name of liberation and the inidan government should prevent tamil nadu being used as a safe have n and try to contain exteme elements in Tamil Nadu. These are important issues that the Indian government should address if they are honest with their support to sirisena
This is called flattering
China did and same and got the Humbunthota port.
India doing to get the Trincomale harbor.
Soon America will do that and install a dangerous factory like in Bopal in India which blew and caused many deaths,
And British will erect a sub standard clothing factory like the five story building in Bangladesh that collapsed and killed and injured many works.
