Chennai, June 7(BPNS)

Congress legislature party leader of Tamil Nadu assembly,  K. Selvaperunthagai has called upon the state government to pass a resolution urging the centre to provide proper security to state or rather the security of the state is in place as China is dominating Sri Lanka.

The Congress leader in a statement on Monday said that the recent developments relating to China supported Colombo Port City project was a major security threat to India.

The Congress legislature party leader said that the Narendra Modi government has failed in its foreign policy and this has turned into a major security threat to the country.

K Selvaperunthagai called upon the state government to urge the centre to pursue legal action over this Chinese domination and not to allow a Galwan like situation develops in Tamil Nadu.

It may be recalled that the Sri Lankan government had passed the Colombo Port City Economic Commission bill giving complete control of the Hambantota port to the Chinese. There were huge criticisms in Sri Lanka that the new law would provide much control to China and that it would affect the sovereignty of the Island nation.

The Tamil Nadu Director General of Police had issued an alert to all the 37 district police chiefs of the state over possible protest from ultra Tamil groups including some groups which are supportive of the Tamil Eelam cause.
