COLOMBO Alessandro Florenzi Jersey , March 11 (Xinhua) -- Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has provoked a storm over his controversial statement to fire on Indian fishermen poaching in the country's waters ahead of Indian prime minister's historic visit to the country later this week.
Making a statement after the issue was raised in the Indian parliament, External Affairs Minister of India Sushma Swaraj, who met with Wickremesinghe during her two-day visit to the island nation last week, said that she had taken it up with Wickremesinghe.
Swaraj said she was in Sri Lanka when she read the transcript of the interview in which Wickremesinghe justified the firing on Indian fishermen intruding into Sri Lankan waters.
The Sri Lankan prime minister said on Friday that the Indian fishermen were taking away the livelihood of Sri Lankan fishermen in the north and the law allows the security forces to shoot an intruder "breaking into a man's home."
"My meeting was fixed with Wickremesinghe, so I raised the issue strongly with him," the Indian minister said.
Swaraj has told Wickremesinghe that the Indian fishermen released from Sri Lankan prisons in January -- after a new government took office in Colombo -- went through the whole legal procedure, website Colombo Page reported.
The Indian minister said she had reminded Wickremesinghe that Indian Coast Guard recently arrested 19 Sri Lankan fishermen, but "we gave orders to release them."
"I said that if we justify firing, we will keep firing at each other," she added.
Sushma Swaraj said India wants a "permanent solution" to the dragging dispute involving fishermen from both countries who often enter the waters of each other's country for fishing. Swaraj was in Sri Lanka to prepare for the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who will be making the first visit by an Indian prime minister in 28 years. Modi will also visit the country's former war-torn Northern Province during his two-day tour.
India's opposition members took to twitter on Monday to criticize Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe over this comment to shoot Indian fishermen poaching in local waters.
"It's 'bure din' for India if SL can dare to flash eyes to India as it has on fishermen's issues Aleksandar Kolarov Jersey ," Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said in a series of tweets.
Singvi also criticized Wickremesinghe for his remarks and said he does not "deserve" to be Sri Lanka's prime minister if he cannot differentiate between intruders and straying fishermen.
"Yes Mr. Ranil, u can shoot intruders entering ur house; bt if u shoot straying innocent bystanders u r liable to be shot at, tried 4 murder."
"If Sri Lankan PM cannot differentiate between intruders & straying fishermen & finds shooting as only option, he doesn't deserve to be PM!" he tweeted.
Congress General Secretary Shakeel Ahmed expressed shock over Ranil's statement. "On the eve of PM Modi's tour to Sri Lanka, its PM says if Indian fishermen will enter our territory we will shoot them."
"A lasting situation should be found, no extreme action should be taken by SL defense forces," Anand Sharma, another senior Congress leader, posted on Twitter.
Talking about the fishermen issue, Wickremesinghe told a Tamil TV channel on Friday that Abdullahi Nura Jersey , "If someone tries to break into my house, I can shoot. If he gets killed... Law allows me to do that. "
Sri Lanka and India have been deadlocked for years over fishermen from each other's country poaching. Both sides have arrested dozens and at times hundreds of fishermen and released them later.
Renewed talks between the two sides are expected to coincide with Modi's visit but the Sri Lankan government has been steadfastly against bottom trawling by Indian fishermen that destroys the seabed and harms breeding grounds of fish.
Surfing and baseball could both be included in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games after organizers Monday announced their final list of new sports to the world governing body.
The Tokyo Olympic organizers will propose five sport categories - a baseballsoftball joint bid, karate, skateboarding, climbing and surfing - to the IOC, which will formally announce new entries for the 2020 Games ahead of the 2016 Rio Games.

IOC spokesman Mark Adams welcomed the Tokyo proposals, as part of the Agenda 2020 reforms.
He said, "This is another concrete step forward in the implementation of Olympic Agenda 2020, showing a new, fresh and very exciting approach to the Olympic Programme.
"The proposal by Tokyo 2020 reflects the innovative approach of Olympic Agenda 2020, with a particular appeal to youth."
In baseball-mad Japan, the sport - dropped from the Olympic Games along with softball after the 2008 Beijing Games - would be a money-spinner for Tokyo organizers, worth an estimated extra $50 million in ticket sales.
In their presentation to -Tokyo officials, surfing officials highlighted the sport's "sex appeal" to win over organizers Authentic AS Roma Jerseys , with the option of implementing cutting-edge artificial wave technology.
