Former President Mohamed Nasheed has met with Subramanian Swamy, a Member of Parliament in Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament.

Both politicians confirmed their meeting on Twitter on Wednesday.

After the meeting in Sri Lanka, Nasheed said that it was a pleasure to meet with Swamy, a member of India’s ruling party, and that they discussed the current political situation in Maldives, the upcoming presidential elections and the opposition’s concerns on how President Yameen intends to rig the election.

Also on twitter, Swamy said that Nasheed, the self-exiled opposition leader, was apprehensive of rigging in the election and that India cannot allow any electoral fraud, especially since “current usurper” President Yameen has “humiliated Indians”.

India has repeatedly called on the Maldives government to release the political prisoners and allow a free and transparent election. However, their calls have fallen on deaf ears.
