Sri Lanka always had a sour relation with Jayalalithaa, who was given four years of imprisonment after being convicted by a special court in Bangalore, and also breathed easy after India got a majority government at the Centre earlier in May since that ensured a reduced space for Jayalalithaa to carry out her blackmailing tactics.
