India’s Moral Rectitude On Test At Swamy’s Abrasive Conduct

By S. Sivathasan

The susceptibilities of Tamils are now under constant laceration.  The man who has earned the ire of all Tamils is Swamy. From the day Modi was elected Prime Minister, this man thinks he has come into his own. By himself of no consequence, of miniscule weight and without credibility, he has purportedly attached himself to Modi and the BJP government. So he prates and behaves in Sri Lanka. It is very unfortunate that the new government has taken kindly to his scheming ways. His malevolence erodes the image of governance by the day.

Lanka should be “A FEDERATED STATE OF INDIA”. So asserted Swamy not so long ago. Unable to put up with his unsolicited advice the Sunday Times of August 31, 2014 quoted him to tear his mask down. It went further to say “now the government (Sri Lankan) gives the self-styled leader a red-carpet welcome”. Is leader the appropriate word? For reasons of culture apparently, the term impostor has been veered from.

General Gerry de Silva, a one time Jaffna Commander and later a respected Sri Lanka Army Commander has this to say in his book ‘A Most Noble Profession’. “A  day after EPS (Elephant Pass) fell into the hands of the LTTE in April 2000, Dr. Subramanian Swamy made a public statement to the effect that if Sri Lanka wanted India to intervene once more she would have to submit to demands of being a federated state of India.”

Times points out as Swamy saying , that Sri Lanka should become a part of the federated state of India thus denouncing its sovereignty and territorial integrity. Even Velupillai Prabhakaran, the guerrilla leader who fought for a separate state but failed, did not make such a demand. The same Indian politician is now hailed by Sri Lanka. The same Swamy is not only an honoured guest at a seminar on defence but is also taken under heavily armed escort to see military installations.

R Sampanthan MP and leader of the Tamils said “Subramanian Swamy spoke for the Modi Government and went as BJP leader. It has become clear now that the man, who once tried to cross the Palk Straits with a flotilla of boats, to avoid Tamils being “massacred” in Sri Lanka , is portraying himself as a leader in the National Development Alliance government”. Long standing Tamil residents in US recall his days of advocacy of Tamil Eelam and the prominent role he will play in its creation.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs too has stated categorically that Swamy has no mandate whatsoever to speak for the government. Col. Hariharan a regular columnist on Tamil issues says that Swamy is described as a nincompoop in Indian politics. He takes pride in saying that apprehending Indian fishers and confiscating their boats are off his mind. Thamilisai a BJP leader of Tamil Nadu has declared that his views are never BJP views.

Times adds Swamy was making some sweeping statements while in Colombo. He said the TNA must get the Sri Lankan Government’s approval before meeting Premier Modi. One wag was to ask if he got his Government’s permission to meet President Rajapaksa. Premier Modi met the TNA as we know and the TNA did not get any permission from the Rajapaksa Government to do so. So what is Swamy’s standing really, with the BJP Government in New Delhi?

Needless to say he has no standing with the party and nil connection with the government. Narendra Modi keeps him at arm’s length. In Tamil Nadu he is the laughing stock of all. In the Chennai court complex the people in their mass vented their wrath on him with even a splash of rotten eggs. What a fate for a Brahmin! So unrestrainable was their overwhelming venom. May it be remembered that this episode was regarding his stance against the Tamils.

Politics is serious affair for all Tamils at this moment of time. To them Tamil Nadu and by extension India are benign partners if not patrons to resolve a problem which has become virtually intractable. They look up to Prime Minister Narendira Modi and his resoluteness. The intercession of a leader like Yashwant Sinha too is being looked forward to. How much will our disappointment and anger be when we dream of Krishna and Yudhistra but Sakuni thrusts himself instead?

When an individual of uncertain political background and of no consequence in his place of birth Tamil Nadu, tries to sport credentials which he doesn’t have, would it suffice for the government merely to distance itself from such a person? As of now when this man has gone past the Modi government for over three months with absolute nonchalance, it is very disconcerting to think of the harm he has done and the havoc he is yet to cause.

A century back Russia called Rasputin the Mad Monk and thought its responsibility was over. Czar Nicholas paid for it. Calling Swamy names will not do. The world should be made to know that he is persona non grata by the government of India and that he has no entry into the counsels of India. Thereafter President Rajapaksa will not be able to diddle the masses or to pull wool over the eyes of the Tamils.

For Modi’s sense of moral rectitude, India owes it to humanity to do this. Then She can triumphantly say, “Satyam Eva Jayathe”, as inscribed prominently in Lok Sabha.

      It goes without saying. Rajapaksa wanted an Indian to support his cause and is being well paid. Swamy doesn’t know that Rajapaksa is using him with an ulterior motive and once he succeeds he will throw Swamy away.

    It looks a comic irony that the villain of the piece who sets out on the path to ruin others,combines in himself three facets of a Hindu, a Tamil and a friend of the Sinhala. He is a Hindu swearing by Hinduthwa, a Tamil wanting to create Tamil Eelam and a Tamil lieutenant of a Sinhala President, who is being taken for an incredible ride! Indeed a man of many parts.

    “Lanka should be “A FEDERATED STATE OF INDIA”. So asserted Swamy not so long ago.”

    My Elders tell me that the Hindian establishment always considered Sri Lanka as the Sinhala state of Hindia.

    The writing has been on the wall for quite some time. Subramanian Swamy is merely a conduit.

    “Even Velupillai Prabhakaran, the guerrilla leader who fought for a separate state but failed, did not make such a demand.”

    Velupillai Prabhakaran foolishly fought the IPKF to preserve sovereignty of this island while the Sinhala/Buddhist armed forces were hiding behind their women folks.

    No wonder why the Hindians insisted on killing him.

    TNA runs to India; complains to India about the presence of the Sri Lankan military in the North and East. They ignore that any sovereign government has a responsibility to ensure the security of the people and the nation. Hon MP Sambandan et al should know that India is no different. TNA and the other NGO Wallahs in Colombo should examine India’s sordid history battling separatist movements from Punjab(Khalistani movement) to the long standing disputes in the North Eastern territories: commonly called the Seven (7) sister states.

    In States like Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Assam there is an overwhelming presence of the Indian Army, Border Security Forces(BSF) and other paramilitary arms of the central government. People like the Nagas, Mizos, Manipuris don’t view the Hindi speaking mainland Indians as their kin. Yet despite having state governments and relatively peaceful environments over the past 30 years,, all those border states are overrun with Indian military units. Lesser known about India is the story in the 7-Sister states; during that time (1980s) the entire 7-Sister States were out of bounds for any foreign visitor. A person would have had to get special permission from the Central government Department of Defense if they wanted to travel to those states, even though by the mid 1980s Nagaland was quite peaceful and there was no insurgency. To this date, those states are heavily militarized because of India’s fear of China and incursions from Bangladesh as well. Just ten days ago there were major clashed between Naga Tribesmen and Assamese on the Assamese border which led to the death of 18 people mostly Assamese as the more violence prone Naga Tribals attacked Assamese villages in an area Nagas claim as being part of their state. This is a great excuse for India to overwhelm those states with an armed presence.

    Do you know how India deals with dissension and insurgencies and even the hint of trouble in those border states? They use a very powerful tool called the Armed Forces Special Powers Act(or the insidious AFSPA). They abuse those powers in the N.E(in addition to Kashmir ). The law grants the military wide powers of arrest, the right to shoot to kill, to occupy or destroy property. But often, soldiers have killed innocents, creating a climate of rage among ordinary people. AFSPA, designed as an emergency measure(in 1958) but now in force for decades, has contributed to, rather than reduced, violence in India. Since the army is not held accountable, the police, government officials and even militants believe they have the same privilege and commit crimes without fear of punishment. I hope erudite scholars are aware of these hypocritical actions of India when they wag their fingers at GOSL. Did the TNA raise that issue with PM Modi and Jeyalalitha Akka? Have you chaps ever heard of AFSPA?

    TNA MPs, and intellectually superior local NGO-Wallahs of import who wax eloquently should demand visas to travel to those states if possible to observe the level of militarization and go speak to the tribal inhabitants there and ask them how they feel about the Indian military presence. This is a fairly well kept secret because those states, with the exception of tea country: Assam are not relatively important economically to India, have sparse populations, and the people are completely different in ethnicity(they are oriental and look like Burmese and Cambodians) and have a host of tribes and different languages of their own. They are also geographically isolated. The people happen to be either tribal animists or Christians in Nagaland and Mizoram having converted because of British and American missionaries. I had many Naga friends when I lived in Punjab who were studying on scholarships granted by the Indian government in their efforts to win hearts and minds of these tribal populations. Not one of considered themselves to be Indian! They resented the overwhelming presence of Sikh and other troops who could not speak their tribal languages nor care to be culturally sensitive to their needs. Did you also know that Naga tribes engaged in head-hunting until recent times?

    Do you know that there’s an amazing lady named Irom Sharmila in the state of Manipur who has been protesting against the AFSPA for the last 14 years? I suggest the TNA and those intellectual NGO types go visit her. The Indian government and the Indian military have framed the move to do away with AFSPA in ludicrous patriotic terms and accuse anyone who wants to replace that act with a more people friendly humane act as being unpatriotic. A lot of people claim repealing the Act would be an insult to the Indian army and would put the soldiers at risk, others feel that it has adversely affected Indian soldiers. Indian officials claim that troops need such powers because the army is only deployed when national security is at serious risk from armed groups. But there have been numerous instances in which people were executed, and soldiers falsely claimed the people were killed in combat. Without ordering independent investigations, the authorities routinely insist that most such allegations are false. Since the army is not held accountable, the police, government officials and even militants believe they have the same privilege and commit crimes without fear of punishment. Numerous independent commissions in India have recommended repealing the law but central of government has failed to implement the recommendations.

    In addition I will be remiss if I don’t mention the Khalistani war. I lived in Punjab during the Bluestar Operation disaster(which was the start of the Khalistani war), and the rapid almost overnight militarization of Punjab and lived through many 24 hour curfew days imposed with barely 3 hours notice ; the genocidal acts against Sikhs around New Delhi and Haryana after Mrs. Gandhi was assassinated by her Sikh bodyguards on Oct 31st 1984 saw thousands of Sikhs slaughtered burnt and raped by Hindu good squads of the Cong-I regime at far greater numbers than the innocent Tamils slaughtered by brutal murderous thugs mostly associated with the UNP regime in 1983 in Sri Lanka. During that period The State of Punjab was overrun with mostly South Indian and other non Sikh troops who couldn’t speak Punjabi and most Sikh units withdrawn to barracks because the Indian government was afraid of the warrior Sikh regiments mutinying. In fact, after the disastrous Operation Bluestar a Sikh regiment outraged at this sacrilege of their holiest religious site did mutiny. Suddenly we were surrounded by South Indian and Maratha type military contingents who were clueless about Sikhs and Punjab or the Punjabi language. (Note: throughout history, Sikh troops have an excellent reputation as being the best warriors in the Indian army and the government was afraid to trust them). But because this happened in powerful India, the international community was far less judgmental of India in comparison to Sri Lanka.

    In essence, India will (and should) do whatever is necessary, using whatever means at its disposal in the name of national security just like the USA. In contrast, keep in mind the LTTE was the toughest, most ruthless separatist organization in the world. It is only 5 years since the war ended but that does not mean there are not LTTE fighters waiting for a chance to start a war again with S.Indian Tamil Chauvinist and Tiger Diaspora help. Indian hypocrisy is amazing. Really running to India is a trifle ripe considering their track record from Punjab, Kashmir to the 7-sister states.

      “TNA runs to India; complains to India about the presence of the Sri Lankan military in the North and East.”

      Hindia rushes to this island to support its leaders 1971, 1987 to 1990, during Tsunami, from 2005 to 2009 and provides continuous political and diplomatic cover for the war criminals.

      It is only natural Hindians seriously take responsibility to protect descendants of their people in this island, be they Tamils, Sinhalese or Muslims.

      “They ignore that any sovereign government has a responsibility to ensure the security of the people and the nation”

      Sovereignty, of this island, are you being serious?

      I wonder if only one part of the brain works for Mano. I will just wish to point out one statement of Mano , viz” They ignore that any sovereign government has a responsibility to ensure the security of the people and the Nation”
      When you say People and Nation, you seem not to take into account of the Tamils in the North and East but Sinhalese and the Sinhala nation.
      According to you the Tamils do not need security and that was why thousands of Tamil people were killed by Arial bombardment and chased away from their homes. Those homes and lands are now occupied by the army. Where can these people go. What can they do? No one cares about them.
      Whose security are you talking about?

        sellam,
        Why don’t you spell out to readers what security that the Tamils don’t have but the Sinhalese have?
        When did this Arial bombardment of Tamils happen? Did it happen for 30 years or at the end of the war? How many bombardments happened after 2009 till now.
        Army need to occupy the north until Sri Lankans feel safe. Specially after 30 years of terrorism. I fully support the gov. on that. Like the Sinhalese in the south Tamils in the north has to sometimes give their land for the security and development of the region.
        Most other than terror related individuls have been rehabilitated and settled. By the way where do you live? in Jaffna of in the West?

    I wonder why the BJP has failed to muzzle Swamp despite the embarrassment he has caused to them. The man has a party with no electoral support and has no contribution to make to the Modified government. And yet he goes around making all kinds of claims for the new government. I wonder if he is a secret weapon Modified is using with an ulterior motive. Time will tell.

    I am a little surprised, nay disturbed, that Mr. Sivathasan would have even considered Subramanian Swamy for a topic to write on. By virtue of his write-up Sivathasan has elevated a non-entity like Subramanian Swamy into relevance.

    The Indian Government cannot comment on every actor pretending to have access to it. Further, in the game of politics you don’t comment until you are either threatened by or can no more tolerate someone’s actions.

    If the Rajapaksa Government is going to let Swamy find a rope to hang himself that is not for Modi to worry about.

    We shouldn’t worry about it either.

    Oh! dear. Swamy’s lucrative source of income of late – the Rajapakses, incapable of rational thinking or global politics, have no alternative but to distance the regime from this leach. How much of knowledge
    Rajapakses blue-eyed boy Sajin Vaas, Advisor on Foreign Affairs, of Indian political matters can be written behind a five cents stamp.
    Vaas is said to be behind Swamy getting close to the Rajapakses.
    As to the “Team of Indian” experts Swamy paraded at the BMICH recently that charade only fooled the Rajapakses, the Army and the Govt. None of them are in the frontline of Indian academics the Indian Govt consults regularly. As to Professors and Academics, India produces thousands of them every few years.

    Swamy lost his relevance in the short lived Chandrasekhar Govt in the early 90s when he was made Minister of Commerce and Law. Since then he has been virtually in the political wilderness. He was recently shown the door at Harvard University. The Modi Govt tolerates him because he has assembled a large collection of useful documents to indict Sonia Gandhi, P. Chidambaram and others in massive scams that rocked the last Congress Govt.

    Well Said, Mr. Sivathasan.

    Swamy has a knack for keeping himself in the news spotlight by making controversial claims, which make good copy for the media, but he has mostly been just a clown providing some comic relief.

    But I believe you wrote before the Indian general elections that Modi would prove a commonly held belief wrong–the belief being that it is the mandarins in the South Block who would guide foreign policy, and elected politicians wouldn’t deviate much from it.

    I am yet to see any evidence of your earlier claims, though there is a slight change in tone.

    GOSL’s list of friends is dwindling by the day. Desperate times call for desperate means. Even clutching the hands of a charlatan like Swamy gives some form of solace for an isolated president. It is pathetic if not comical that a hypocritical Indian of no consequence gets the red carpet welcome by the Sri Lankan president.

    Swamy is laughing all the way to the bank just like Sharma did.

      BBS,
      Most Sri Lankans appears to be wanting a new government. So, GOSL’s dwindling friends has no relevance. Most regional countries don’t even want UN investigators in their soil. Swamy speaking on behalf of the Gov. is a welcome change for Sri Lanka, but even other wise there will be no real impact on what is happening now.
      Whoever runs for the next presidency needs to answer some important questions like; Will he/she allow UNHRC investigators to enter? does support separation of the country? Will implement 13th amendment?

      If your main concern is a separate Tamil homeland, I feel you might be kind of disappointed.

    If there is anything “worldly” about Tamils its their Brahmins. Its these Hindu Brahmins who keep India in one piece. If not for them India would have been Balkanised many moons ago. The first fracture would begin at the heart of Tamil Nadu.

    The issue with Balkanisation of India is not that it does not have merits. Its just that its very likely to cause a bloodbath unseen in world history since Emperor Ashoka.

    If Swami said Sri Lanka should be federated with India, then it was at a stage when Tamil Eelam was considered almost a reality. Tamil Eelam here and the nature of Tamil nationalism grantees eventual Tamil Nadu separation. Before even one knows the ripple that creates Balkanised India has already started.

      Rotten eggs not available

      Pelting of some inquisitive UNP MPs with rotten eggs, tomatoes (perhaps also rotten) and a semi-political chieftain down Ruhuna way chasing five intrepid UNP MPs, pistol in hand, has shaken our political firmament. During the past few days the cry has been: It’s the end of Sri Lankan democracy; final proof that thugs have taken over the country because some apparently amused policemen had been photographed watching the mayhem as if it was like an everyday event.

      SLC responds to monk group threatening to ‘throw rotten eggs at cricketers’
      April 6, 2013 09:07 am

      Sri Lanka’s cricket board said it has addressed the concerns raised by a group of Buddhist clergy on the participation of its cricketers in the ongoing sixth edition of the Indian Premier League.

      Upali Dharmadasa, chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket, said he had written to the monks groups responding to concerns expressed by them.

      The contents of the letter, however, were not released to the media.

      Dharmadasa, while telling the monks about SLC’s talks on the players’ safety with the external affairs and sports ministries, said that the players had signed their respective IPL contracts long time back.

      There was no immediate reaction from the monks to the SLC communique.

      The group called Power of Ravana, who advocated that players boycott the IPL, reacted angrily when players departed for the tournament.

      They threatened that the players will be attacked with rotten eggs upon arrival here at the end of the tournament.

      There was outrage in Sri Lanka over Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s demand to ban Sri Lankan players from playing in Chennai, PTI reports.

          You are still hearing voices in your head. For a change read what Buddha had to say about Caste hierarchy, excerpts:

          The Buddha’s tribe, the Sākyans,were excessively proud of their high caste status. When a group of them requested to become monks, the Buddha ordained Upāli, a low caste barber, first, thus giving him a precedence that would require the others to bow to him.

          The Buddha criticised the caste system on several grounds.

          The claim that it was ordained by God is no more than a myth (M.II,148).

          Caste is not practised everywhere and thus must be a regional custom rather than a universal truth (M.II,149).

          The claim that different castes have different abilities and personalities is not born out by experience and is thus invalid (M.II,150; Sn.116).

          Low castes and outcastes may be dirty because they are compelled to do dirty jobs, but if they wash themselves they become as clean as everyone else (M.II,151).

          The caste system engenders cruelty and suffering and is thus evil. The Buddha further pointed out that the supposed divine origin of caste differences is even contradicted by economics.

          If an outcast managed to become wealthy he could employ a desperately poor brahman and compel him to wait on him, serve him, and do his bidding (M.II,85).

          From the Buddhist perspective,

          how people are treated,

          the respect they receive,

          the opportunities they have,

          even where they are reborn,

          should depend on their behaviour,

          not what caste they are born into.

          The Buddha said: ‘Without righteousness, all castes can go to purgatory. All castes are pure if they act with righteousness.’ (Ja.VI,100).

          “The most interesting of these arguments is that one could have been high caste, low caste or outcaste in one’s former life or that one might be in the next life, and that one’s future is conditioned by one’s behaviour in this life (i.e. kamma), not by which caste one belongs to.”

          Sri Lanka’s monastic sects are all divided along caste lines.

          Since you are an Aryan Sinhala/Buddhist supremacist you might find it difficult to learn and understand Buddha’s teaching.

      Vibushna you Sinkalam:

      In your wish to see the destruction of the Tamils beacuse of your hatred for Tamils you are looking at anything at everthing looking for fractures and let me help you to dismatle.

      1) You say that Brahmins control everthying in Tamilandu which is keeping India together. Then you cotradict yoursef and lose the argument and say the Low Caste Tamils will throw rotten eggs the face of Tamil Nationalism. So which of your argument is valid. It boils down to you saying that Tamil Nationalism comes from the Low Cast and the inference is that contrary to what you say the Low Caste Tamils feel ( Nationalism) part of the Indian Union.

      2) Balkanisation in India will bring bloodshed and for your information India is not Sri Lanka. India has a democratic traditiion and jusst like Scotish Referendum India will hold a Referendum and respect the will of the people unlike MR the THUG and DICTATOR.

    Subramanian Swamy is a person with deeply disturbed mind, complex, policy less, drifting, non consistent and an ignored politician of no value. No one takes him seriously in India and treat him as a joke in Tamil Nadu. He only likes creating trouble,attention seeking, building cheap publicity and an arrogant rude individual. Every one loves to hate him but BJP keeping him on a long leash is going to damage the reputation of Modi Govt. But Modi is probably studying him and will do what`s necessary at the right time !

      bruz,
      Many including you are writing how Swamy is irrelevant, ignored, no value, ignorent, trouble making etc. etc. in every aspect that one can think about. If all these are true why are you so worried about him? Leave him alone as he can do nothing bad to the Tamils.

    Dear Mr. SS,

    Swamy is a politician whose profession is gaining in politics full time. The practice of the profession in Sri Lanka has degraded so much, it could be reasonably stated that in Sri Lanka no politician would be alive if the death penalty is implemented or all of them would be in prison if the police and the judiciary is not corrupt.

    Under Prime Minister NM, Swamy can play two roles: As the honest and upright leader of BJP or Jester of Indian Government.

    Since you are not a politician but a person who has associated with Sri Lankan politicians at both national and provincial levels, you are in a better position assess and judge whether Swamy is an upright leader or jester.

    Pl remember that with experience politicians become educated and they are at liberty like the voters to change their political philosophies.

    If a person is to be called a “Politician”, then this person should have a voter base. When did “Supramaniya” Swami last contest an election? Even when BJP offered him an electorate to contest, he refused with a lame excuse. He does not have a voter base. He amalgamated his party (which was dwindling down to zero voter base) with BJP and it was like giving something “summa (free)” to BJP. Although SL news media called him the Chairman of BJP, he is not a Chairman of BJP. He is a Chairman of a small group appointed to collect votes for BJP at the forthcoming election. He is the biggest fraud in BJP today. Its only the SL Government that keeps him on the head and dances, in India he is a “spent force”.

    The two comments quoted below are absolutely pertinent
    “I am a little surprised, nay disturbed, that Mr. Sivathasan would have even considered Subramanian Swamy for a topic to write on. By virtue of his write-up Sivathasan has elevated a non-entity like Subramanian Swamy into relevance.” (Nathan)
    “As to the “Team of Indian” experts Swamy paraded at the BMICH recently that charade only fooled the Rajapakses, the Army and the Govt. None of them are in the frontline of Indian academics the Indian Govt consults regularly.” (Kettikaran)
    May I add that Mr.Sivathasan was a carried away by the Modi factor and his expectations ran high. He had better come down to earth. India is a great country but full of contradictions. Modi is just another politician come to power in a country in which we have had only two great prime minisiters.- the unrivalled Nehru and Vajpayee. Nehru’s name has been sullied by his grandsons and their children. One major factor in the mundane politics that brought Modi to power was the unprecedented corruption, and criminalization of politics in India under the Sonia-Rahul regime. Can Modi do better? Having used the RSS and other communal forces he is likely to remain under the bondage of the RSS.
    With regard to Sinhala-Tamil relations Indian national interests will prevail – which in effect will be to allow both sides here to stew in their own juice.

    eusense;
    Swamy has done only damages to many people in India and Tamils in Lanka and all over the world. He has yet to do anything good in his life time.
    He cannot do anything more, anymore. No one is seriously worried about him at all.
    I respect the last comment of Mr Karthigesu’s very valid arguments. Modi has come with a heavy baggage of RSS bondage and he cannot deliver much. Like Mr Kargthigesu said, “Indian national interest will prevail”…Modi is not Nehru or even Indra Gandhi. Lankan Tamils will continue to suffer with no solution or solace in sight and cannot expect even a little comfort from the rougue regime of MR and the junta.

    What is the big deal about Mr Swamy saying , Srilanka should become a federated state of India.

    Didn’t the West who are now 100 % behind the LTTE proxy TNA say that Mr Prabakaran can not be defeated and the Govt should bend over?.

    Shouldn’t these pro TNA writers consider Swamy’s above comment in that context?.

    His thought probably was by making our small Nation a state of India was the best way to defend it from the marauding Praba army and his nighty backers.

    Year 2000 was one of the darkest periods in our 2500 year history.

    Even our own Politicians and followers in the South would have thought it was better to be part of India than living under Mr Prabkaran. and his stooges in the party of the Intelligentsia…

    Even if we joined , we could have de-federated after Prabakaran was taken care of by the Jawans.

    And who would have thought even in their dreams then., that we could find a local who could take on mighty Praba and his Western backers and piss them off.

    Mr Swamy is a caring politician who is keen to see the progress of our post Nanthikadal continue.

    He is well aware what could be in store for our poor inhabitants, if the current lot of LTTE proxies who have now turned into HR brigades and their political stooges grab power again .

    Politicians who change with times for the good of inhabitants whether in their own country or overseas nations are true statesmen.

    Specially when we bench mark them against our own who are now clamouring to be temporary Presidents and Executives PM, but didn’t know the difference between Elephant Pass Alimankada) and Pamankada.

      Ask MR the THUG as he is the one writing LOVE LETTERS to him and deriving PLEASURE from the encounters every October when he comes round for the pay cheque.

    This joker Swamy has to be in a Kovil without dabbling in International Politics though our jokers here think a world of him. He is NATO ( No Action Talk Only )

    Sivathason:

    Lanka should be “A FEDERATED STATE OF INDIA”. So asserted Swamy not so long ago. Unable to put up with his unsolicited advice the Sunday Times of August 31, 2014 quoted him to tear his mask down. It went further to say “now the government (Sri Lankan) gives the self-styled leader a red-carpet welcome”. Is leader the appropriate word? For reasons of culture apparently, the term impostor has been veered from.

    *** Luny Swami is a self appointed CLOWN who shoots from the hip. He is not part of BJP and Modi humiliated him when the CLOWN expecetd to be appointed be a Financial advisor. Mod didnt even invite him for the Inauguration. If he had any say he would have prvented BJP from having talks with TNA so that tells you he has no influence.

    The quote above was given when he was venturing into Sri Lankan politics and MR the THUG has been writing LOVE LETTERS to Swami and they are now lovers and MR pays him hansomely for the PLEASURES. I dont read much into what he says because he is a JIHADIST and a spent force. Just relax and take it easy it is not good for your health.

    While all other TN politicians always act, TN is their country and rest of India is a different country, Swamis is the only TN politician thinks that he is an Indian and his view is country based than state based.
