India's Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy on Saturday asked Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa to visit Sri Lanka to help foster Sinhala-Tamil reconciliation.
"I urge Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa to visit Sri Lanka and help foster the Sinhala-Tamil reconciliation instead of engaging in competitive Tamil sectarian chauvinism with Karunanidhi who is now bankrupt of ideas," he said in a statement.
The Janatha Party leader said a visit by Jayalalithaa will promote reconciliation.
"The Sinhala-Tamil animosity based on the bogus British imperialist Aryan-Dravidian divide has plagued the two communities and this needs to be rectified now," he said.
A visit by Jayalalithaa to Sri Lanka at this juncture will promote reconciliation and foster India-Sri Lanka bonding, he added.
