This has reference to Mani Shankar Aiyar’s article on Sri Lanka’s ethnic conflict. The author states that the present strife is a fallout of stupid withdrawal of IPKF before devolution (of powers) was completed. True. However the pullout of Indian forces was due to growing anti – India feelings at that time among both the Parties i.e., Tamils and Sri Lankans.
