Reiterating the Narendra Modi government’s stand on relationship with Sri Lanka, he said that India has to maintain friendly relations with its neighbor, the Indo Asian News Service reported.
However, Mr Naidu also said that the BJP, being a national party and leading the central government, will have to see the national and international ramifications of actions relating to Sri Lanka.
