Training Sri Lankan Military Personnel in Tamil Nadu

If the Indian government wanted to provide training to Sri Lankan military personnel, may be as a friendly gesture, may be in exchange for something else, how do you think the government should go about it? Where do you think the training programme should be held? I would have thought the training would be arranged at a venue outside Tamil Nadu, since Indian military support for Sri Lanka attracts a fair amount of flak in Tamil Nadu. But no, the Indian government has apparently been training Sri Lankan Air Force personnel at the Tambaram Air Force base in Chennai!

I would like to know if this was just a case of carelessness or was the training meant to be a secret, which leaked out? If it is the latter, it is a cause for concern.
