NDTV Documentary Video: “Blood and Water”.
The Sri Lankan High Commissioner for India had appealed about the documentary programme which was aired over the Indian NTV television to withdraw the programme. The request was made by Prasad Kariyawasam in regard to the programme which was telecast in the name of “Blood and Water”.
The programme which was telecast showed, three to 6 lacks of people are living in the Vavuniya interment camps behind the barbed fence. Kariyawasam pointed out that only 30 thousand persons are living at the Vavuniya camps. He said the many programmes telecast in the programme were recorded one year before. Further another segment consisting about 300 Indian fishermen had been arrested by the Sri Lankan navy forces for the past many years was also accommodated in the programmes which is totally false was stated by Prasad Kariyawasam.
He said, in addition to this, the refugees due to economic problems are intruding to Australia was mentioned in the programme which cannot be accepted . Hence he requested the NTV Television administration to grant him an opportunity to explain the actual situation
