Sri Lanka BJP has no links to India : Muththusami

The newly-formed Sri Lanka Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) does not have any links to India’s BJP, its leader V. Muththusami said Saturday.

“If India is assisting us, we will inform the media about it,” Muththusami told reporters.

He said that the objective of the party would be to work with the government in developing the standards of education and sports of the Tamils.

“We will engage in activities in the central region, the Northern and Eastern provinces and Colombo,” the SLBJP leader explained.

He said that plans to establish the party had been made six years ago.
