Along with Rajapaksa, other heads of state of the SAARC region will also take part in Modi's swearing in ceremony, including Pakistani Head of State Nawaz Sheriff. 
 
Tamil Nadu leaders, including Jayalalithaa and Karunanidhi have expressed their strong opposition over Modi's decision to invite Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa for his swearing in ceremony.
 
MDMK, an ally of BJP, had already opposed Rajapaksa's participation in Modi's swearing-in but other major NDA constituents in the state--DMDK and PMK, are yet to make their stand official on this matter.
