PM Modi meets Rajapaksa a day after latter blamed India for his defeat


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday had a meeting with former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa in Colombo.

The meeting took place at the ‘India House’ inside the premises of the Indian High Commission on the last day of Modi’s Sri Lanka visit, the first by an Indian Prime Minister in after 28 years.

The meeting came in the backdrop of Rajapaksa’s accusation that India, the US and European countries had a hand in his humiliating defeat in the January presidential elections.

Rajapaksa, in an interview to the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, levelled allegations against the US and India and said they openly used their embassies to bring him down.

The details of Saturday’s meeting between Rajapaksa and Modi were not known yet.
