Hope we really did this
Irrespective to whether RAW did this or not TOIlet has managed to do the following:-
1) Sow seeds to doubt among the Lankans that their election process was tampered with.
2) Give other countries to point/refer to TOIlet and start parroting how Modi-Doval combination is interfering in other countries democracy.
3) Give Rajapaksha a slight room to wiggle and point fingers at India for his loss. If in future we comes back to power, he might keep this in mind and outrightly oppose India.
4) Makes the new govt. a bit shy about publicly joining hands with India due to fear of being labeled "Indian agents".
Once again MSM has shown that they are irresponsible and immature IMO in their reporting of national security/foreign policy related matters. I am not too keen to see such articles in MSM, especially when they are from "unnamed sources".
For all I know this is a news planted by Chinese/Pak agents via MSM to defame the Indian govt. and to sour the moment of victory for the new SL govt which is clearly not tilting towards China as the previous one did.
