New Delhi, May 25 (IBNS): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is set to boycott prime minister-elect Narendra Modi's swearing-in ceremony on Monday, reports said.
"The decision has been taken in the wake of Mr Modi's invite to Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa to attend his swearing-in. Mr Rajapaksa has confirmed that he will attend," NDTV reported quoting sources.
 
Jayalalithaa will also not send any representative from her party, the channel reported.
 
The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) on Thursday criticized Modi for inviting Rajapaksa.
 
"Modi has the blessings and support of the people of India. He should have respected Tamil sentiments and avoided inviting the Lanka President to his oath-taking ceremony," said DMK leader T. K. S. Elangovan.
