Modi affirms India’s support for Lankan Tamils.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said his government has always taken care of the welfare of Sri Lankan Tamils and ‘consistently’ flagged the issue of their rights with the leaders in the island nation.

India was always committed to ensuring that the Tamils there lived with equity, equality, justice, peace and dignity, he said here, after launching various government projects in railways and defence sectors.

Modi recalled the various welfare initiatives taken by the Centre in the housing and health sectors aimed at benefiting the Lankan Tamils, and said he was the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Jaffna (in 2015) in northern Sri Lanka.
