India denies Gen. Fonseka’s claim PDF Print E-mail
India has dismissed the claim made by Sri Lanka’s Chief of Defence Staff Sarath Fonseka that Indian troops were put on alert at the insistence of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa following fears of a coup. Strongly rejecting General Fonseka's claim, Shashi Tharoor the Minister of State for External Affairs said on Saturday there was no substance to the story.

It is also reported that Indian leaders expressed their apprehension over the General Sarath Fonseka's candidacy in the forthcoming presidential election when Ranil Wickramasinghe, Opposition Leader met them in New Delhi last week. Ranil Wickramasinghe's visit was made last week while Sri Lanka Govt. delegation is waiting for the Indian approval for a visit to New Delhi.
