New Delhi, Aug 4 (ANI): India has reportedly summoned Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to India and lodged a formal protest against a derogatory article about Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. The offending article appeared in the defence ministry’s website last week, and was promptly withdrawn after a hue and cry was raised over it in India. Television reports quoted External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj saying in Parliament on Monday that India condemns derogatory article published in Sri Lanka, and of taking up the matter seriously with Colombo.
