DMK Pulls Out Of Indian Government Over Sri Lanka Issue

By Colombo Telegraph

“A key regional ally has pulled out of India’s ruling coalition over the government’s failure to condemn alleged atrocities against Sri Lankan Tamils.” BBC reports.

M. Karunanidhi

According to BBC, the DMK party’s 18 MPs will not support the Congress party-led government. Five MPs who are ministers in the government will also resign from the cabinet.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi has demanded that the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government pass a resolution in parliament condemning alleged atrocities committed by Sri Lankan forces against Tamils during the island’s long civil war.

He has also protested against the Indian government’s position on a resolution on alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka which is before the United Nations Human Rights Council – he wants India to push for stronger language in the resolution, including the use of the word “genocide”, the BBC said.

    I think the comments left under the Hindu article by Indians is a good resource for any sensible Sri Lankan politician to reflect on the reconciliation plans in Sri Lanka.

      1. When will the International Community and GoI learn that Mahinda Rajapassa does NOT understand or appreciate SOFT POWER? Rajapassa is a CRUDE AND BRUTAL man who lacks intellect and culture and rather abuses and distorts religion (Buddhism) and culture. Today men in Saffron robes who call themselves monks are running amok!
      2. All the Rajapakse brothers have NO EDUCATION and are of zero intellectual capacity – they are hence destroying the education system and the judiciary. They will only respond to BRUTE FORCE and TOUGH RESOLUTIONS by the international community – if at all.
      3. Rajapakse Regime change will be a bloody process in Lanka and the sooner it is done the better because the longer they have to entrench themselves and the Rajpakse military dictatorship – the more bloody will be the struggle to liberate Lanka from the brutal and uneducated Rajapakse Family that worships only one GOD – MONEY! CRUDE and IMMORAL BUNCH of war criminals!

    We salute the noble gesture of the indefatigable Karunanidhi, hero of the Tamils. Also we remember that when the poor, innocent civilians were slaughtered like animals on the shore of Nandikadal, he was the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and didn’t say a word. The halo of the 4G Spectrum’s scam was indeed stronger than any possible love for the cause. We understand that. The historical defeat of the fight for an independent Tamil Eelam and the horrible genocide of his own people were secondary to his own political survival. We understand that.

      Bankrupt politicians in US and West deceive India, India deceive TN, TN deceive Elam, Elam deceive Tamil Diaspora and Tamils showing them a useless UNHRC and its useless pieces of resolution papers. This will continue as long as they receive a part of ransom money collected by Elam from poor Tamils. This chain will end when no Tamil Diaspora to pay these big mouths, after the next Tamil Diaspora generations are absorbed in to cultures of the respective countries they live in exile.

    Let us get one thing straight. Karunanidhi is a politician. As such he has to take different stands based on the advantages as opposed to principles, which are a facade to deceive the general public.

    The likes of Karunanidhi wants a devolution in Sri Lanka akin to India. The former Prime Minister, who had the prospects of becoming the Prime Minister again, namely Rajiv Gandhi was brutally murdered. The sentence is not carried out because the responsibility of carrying it out lies with Tamil Nadu state.

    In the name of heaven we do not want a devolution that will allow that kind of implementation of the law to make the unity of Sri Lanka a mockery.

      Already the country is in turmoil. One cannot eat what he plants in his own garden, the cost of cooking is flying day by day. Some say halal pigs fly, they could be the protein of survival ending up in our platters, while the cows and goats were emancipated to their freedom. Hogs could be a short lived luxury in our taste-buds until they get promoted to the status of ‘endangered species’ when the state will impose statutory warnings like “Anybody eating the boo eaters will be prosecuted to a term or to life”, empowered by a commissioned squadron of “The Hog task force”.

      Ultimately, the Hog may claim the Lion for it’s place in Lankan’s State insignia, and the rest is what the main dish in our Menu “Poo, Poo, Poo”. Amen.

    @ Jayagath,

    How making an separate state in Srilanka will be detrimental to its soveriegnity? Take example of India, TN part of the Union of India, and stays well with India. As long as equlaity, fraternity and political rights are enshrined, I dont think so. In fact it strengthens with diversity. This ill-conceived notion only inflate misunderstanding and cause deep divide further

    If Karunanidhi is pulling out his Union Cabinet Team – in many ways his milch cow – that clearly works in favour of the Rajapakses who can
    probably hear better news than they expected from Geneva. If that were to happen Subramaniam Swamy -now available to the highest bidder – will up his future rates. GoI, in the meantime, will strike a separate deal with the Rajapakses on a Quid pro Quo to take him out of the life-saver in the ICU. Obviously, nothing comes free in this commercial-centred world.

    The state election of 2011 with its wiping out of the DMK and the Congress was a clear warning that neither of them stood a dog’s chance at the 2014 Lok Sabha election either individually or jointly. Both had failed to take note of the people’s revulsion at their attitude on the SL Tamil issue. MK knew well then and knows better still now that Congress cannot win a single seat in TN. Any coalition with this liability will only drag the partner too into the mire. So separation was the way to survival.

    The idea in gestation for 2 years is now publicly announced. MK’s somersaults never impressed the TN voter. Their contempt is all the more now. That’s why Sonia was not in the least bothered. Rahul is unconcerned about his fake clout. J is totally unfazed. The people have moved away completely from him. In this context his quitting is a non event in TN and causing not even a ripple in ND. What effect on SL? NIL.
