Sri Lanka army will quit north, if we’re mum: PCC chief

Sri Lanka army will quit north, if we’re mum: PCC chief: "Q) AICC and TNCC were not on the same page on the Katchatheevu row during the UPA regime. TNCC was also blamed for being inconsistent at times? UPA was also against retrieving the islet? All except your party and BJP in TN are for retrieving Theevu. What is your stand now?
A) If Katchatheevu can be retrieved, we have no objection. We will not stand in the way. But retrieval will not solve TN fishermen’s problem. Moreover, Katchatheevu is bound by an international agreement. To my limited knowledge, SC order will not bind Lanka. So, I believe the SC cannot give any relief to our fishermen.
 
Q) Both in Katchatheevu and Lankan Tamils issue, all but you and BJP stand isolated. How do you face the constant attack from Dravidian majors?
A) If we do not rake up the issue here, Tamils will be happy there (Sri Lanka). The army will be withdrawn from northern Lanka if we keep quiet here. People raking up the issue here are only creating a fear psychosis among the Lankans that there might be another uprising. That prevents restoration of normalcy there. Political parties in TN will not have an agenda if the problem is settled. They are doing it for personal political gains."

Ceylon Today | India's Loss is a Huge Eye-Opener for BCCI says Arjuna Ranatunga

Ceylon Today | India's Loss is a Huge Eye-Opener for BCCI says Arjuna Ranatunga: "Arjuna Ranatunga's finest hour as captain of Sri Lanka came in a limited overs tournament - the 1996 World Cup triumph. But Ranatunga has been a fan of Test cricket ever since he made his debut as an 18-year-old against England at Colombo in 1982.
 
Hence, it was not surprising that he bemoaned the devaluation of Test cricket caused by India's 1-3 defeat to England in the third edition of the Pataudi Trophy on Sunday.
 
Ranatunga was known as one of the most astute captains in contemporary cricket. He read the game better than most of his contemporaries in the 1990s.
 
Ranatunga was shocked with what the Indian batsmen dished out at the Oval on Sunday when they were dismissed for 94 in 29.2 over's to lose by an innings and 244 runs

Modi May Visit SL Next Year: Swamy - The New Indian Express

Modi May Visit SL Next Year: Swamy - The New Indian Express: "Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi may visit Sri Lanka early next year, according to Dr Subramanian Swamy, head of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Strategic Action Committee.

Swamy told select journalists on the sidelines of the Sri Lankan Army’s Defence Seminar here on Monday, that India’s policy on Lanka is being decided by the Government of India, and not the states, though the latter may be consulted.

Elaborating, Swamy said that he is in Lanka attending the army seminar, despite protests by certain sections in Tamil Nadu, because both Prime Minister Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah had given him the green signal to attend.

“In November this year, the Indian National Security Advisor will visit Sri Lanka and Prime Minister Modi may come early next year,” Swamy said.

Fundamentally Freund: Defeating terrorists: From Sri Lanka to Gaza | JPost | Israel News

Fundamentally Freund: Defeating terrorists: From Sri Lanka to Gaza | JPost | Israel News: "“We gave clear instructions: no cease-fires, no negotiations until we defeat the LTTE completely,” Sri Lankan Defense Minister Gotabhaya Rajapaksa told The Washington Post in February 2009. “The LTTE would use cease-fires and peace talks to reorganize and resupply weapons. There have been...dozens of negotiations and more than 10 cease-fires. Everything failed. After every period of negotiation, they came back stronger. We decided enough was enough.”

Sound familiar? After several months of intensive combat, the Sri Lankan government succeeded in capturing the Tigers’ last remaining outposts and killing its leadership.

Kaushal will urge MR to compromise and Tamils to seek Ballot over Bullet

Kaushal will urge MR to compromise | Colombo Gazette: "compromise with the Tamils, because peace is very important not only for Sri Lanka but for the whole of South Asia. And the Tamils should give up the bullet for the ballot, and negotiate with the government. The experts’ panel should render justice. We have to solve the problem,” Kaushal told Express over phone from Dehradun on Sunday.
The Lankan government is implementing the 13th constitutional amendment which devolves power to the provinces, but progress has hit the rocks because the Tamils want powers over the police, he said.

The 77-year old Padma Shri award winner said that India had taken a “wrong approach” to Lanka because of the “Tamil Nadu factor”.

Dharmasena tip helped Moeen shine

Dharmasena tip helped Moeen shine: "Cricketers have concealed many things in their pockets over the years, from dirt to lucky hankies, but Moeen Ali has found a novel use for his that has trousered him 19 Indian wickets with power to add at the Kia Oval this week.

As Moeen, 27, was casting around for ideas to help his bowling before the Lord’s Test against India, the umpire Kumar Dharmasena, an off spinner who played 31 Tests for Sri Lanka, provided the moment when it all clicked.

“After the first Test at Trent Bridge, where I went for quite a few runs, I sat down and analysed it and felt the need for change. Then Belly (Ian Bell) took me to one side on the practice day at Lord’s and said: 'Look, this is what you’ve got to do to be consistent in the Test side, this is what Swanny (Greame Swann) did, bowl quicker and straighter, especially on a first-day pitch.
