    Its not a Naval base. It has been misquoted. But just a nodal coastguard watch station or something of that effect.

    we should permanently station some small frigates along with some fast attack crafts in the gulf of Mannar which will deter SL navy who attacks our fishermen and beat them very brutally with sticks, iron rods, stones and what not. Meantime those frigates should also be assigned with the duty to check that by mistake our fishermen don't enter into SL waters.

    It is not material if a base is required or not.

    All what is required is that India sends a strong message to SL that they should not take India for granted.

    SL is acting too much like a loose cannon!

    If SL feels China can save them, then so be it.

    India should so poise herself so that China then wonders who will save them!

    Frigate in the gulf of Mannar?

    And ships in the Palk strait ?

    Harbour at Dhanushkodi ?

    well, people should know a little geography and hydrography before shooting such things...


    Gulf of Mannar cover only the Eastern coast of SL... What about the rest... the hot area is Palk Straight....

    A few old missile boats are an overkill there.
