Jayalalithaa Acquitted: Relentless Defender Of Eelam Rights Back In The Saddle

By Usha S Sri-Skanda-Rajah

We are on course Ladies and Gentlemen, the “Lady’ is back “victorious” and “stronger” than ever.

I wrote about, “Jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity“, in an article in the Colombo Telegraph and many relished the thought of me eating humble pie when she was convicted of, what the charge described as amassing “disproportionate assets.”

And later, I didn’t call her “The Formidable Jayalalithaa – Unrivalled Leader Of The Tamils“, for nothing!

The Lady is not for turning! I said it once, I said it twice and I am saying it a third time! And I am right every time!

Hear ye, hear ye, the incredible and formidable Jayalalithaa, the relentless defender of Eelam rights is back in the saddle. She will be sworn in again on Sunday May 17 2015 as Chief Minister of Tamilnadu.

The so called “corruption case” brought on by her arch rival DMK stalwart Karunanidhi who has not come to this with clean hands no doubt, and another – an attention seeker, anti-Eelam Tamil propagandist and Mahinda and Gotabaya Rajapaksa buddy, Subramanian Swamy has been demolished – The DMK, pursuing the case with a vengeance, everyone knows, to topple this otherwise unshakeable “political giant” the only major threat to their family rule.

Jaya 3The move to oust her by any means didn’t go according to plan, much to the chagrin of the two petitioners in the trial, with the Karnataka High Court declaring her acquittal in a well reasoned judgement, here today in Bangalore – the NDTV Anchor Ankita Mukherji from the “left Right and Centre” programme, noting, that as Jayalalithaa, “is now all set to make a triumphant comeback, the contrast couldn’t be starker – the case that took 18 long years in a lower court for conviction – in an acquittal, took ten second to pronounce,” she said. Yes, 10 seconds – the time it took Justice Kumaraswamy of the Karnataka High Court to announce his decision to overturn the verdict of the Trial Court in a case that ran and ran for nearly two decades.[1]

It’s significant that the case was transferred from Tamilnadu to Karantaka on a supreme court order in 2003.

Jayalalithaa was found guilty, and now acquitted, of accumulating wealth to the tune of Indian, “Rupees 53 crores and sentenced to 4 years and fined 100 crores in September 2014 by a trial court,” that could have otherwise virtually brought an end to her political career. Jayalalithaa, calling it politically motivated, “contended that the then DMK government-led investigation had deliberately over-valued her assets and she had acquired the property, including jewellery, through legal means.”

As a result of this conviction Jaya had to step down as Chief Minister and had to give up her State Assembly seat in Srirangam. No not only will she be reinstated now, arrangements are being made for her to return to her Srirangam seat with the newly elected incumbent expected to resign with immediate effect.

Vindicated and obviously “satisfied” with the verdict Jayalalithaa thanked her party “cadres” and the people of Tamilnadu: “I have emerged as tested pure gold,” she said, “I have done nothing wrong.. Dharmam has won.” [2]

Whilst supporters were jubilant and offering sweet laddus to everyone at this most surprising but joyous turn of events, fireworks were being lit everywhere; many were fulfilling the vows of penance they took for months and months in the name of their dear leader, never for a moment accepting that her political chapter had closed. Even the man who took over the reins actually seemed like he took it, temporarily, in an acting capacity; Paneerselvam never sat on the Chief Minister’s chair or occupied her room; he was still in the Finance Minister’s seat; here was a man who cried when he took office and will surely be smiling when he resigns! This is indeed unprecedented, as someone said his attitude could give a new meaning to the word “loyalty”.

Unable to believe what I was hearing when I woke up this morning I was pinching myself; please somebody tell me I am not having a beautiful dream!

Ouch!

And then I realized I wasn’t dreaming – it’s been confirmed , splashed all over the Indian media and worldwide with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Foreign Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj congratulating Jayalalithaa, with Modi speaking to her personally on the phone according to a AIADMK statement. [3] Jayalalithaa had missed Modi’s oath taking ceremony as Prime Minister to show her objections to the invitation accorded to Mahinda Rajapaksa – The Tamilnadu State Assembly had in March 2013, it should be remembered, “unanimously adopted a resolution urging the Centre to stop treating Sri Lanka as a friendly nation and to slap sanctions on it while demanding a referendum for a separate Tamil Eelam.” [4]

In recent times the Modi government has counted on AIADMK support to push through “key issues in parliament,” including its land reform bill:

“The party has supported the BJP government on several key issues in Parliament. The Modi government, which is in a minority in the Rajya Sabha depends on the support of regional parties like the AIADMK to push through key legislation. In the national elections that PM Modi’s BJP won, Ms Jayalalithaa swept her state, winning 37 of 39 seats. That made her AIADMK the third largest party in the Lok Sabha.”

Now Jayalalithaa, as far as the Centre is concerned, “is no more the convict, but an honourable executive.. strengthening her position vis-a-vis national politics,” according to senior journalist, Shekar Gupta. It, “also strengthens her power within the party.. although there was never a challenge.. but from being the boss from outside to being on top with genuine executive power and status is very different, to that extent it changes the picture for her for the better,” he added. [5]

The High Court’s judgement was 919 pages long and acquitted her based on the law that she was allowed 10% of her income as accumulated wealth (and 20% in Andhra Pradesh), whereas, “the disproportionate income of Jayalalithaa’s works out to 8.12 % which is within permissible limits.”

The full judgment can be read here: [6] [7] [8]

Jayalalithaa’s administration that had not been functioning properly and had been almost “paralysed” since her conviction was beginning to fast track all of its operations with new vigour. The AIADMK party itself got a new lease of life as it were, its website releasing a video compiling the tributes and greetings of many of the party faithful, MLAs, Ministers and the people of Tamilnadu. In it were the words: [9]

Amma is strong!

Amma is Brave

Amma is Noble

Amma is Back

Amma is the Spirit of Tamilnadu

And if I may dare add to the people’s cry I would say, “Amma is the Spirit of Tamil Eelam.”

For me like Tamil Nadu, “Today was Mother’s Day for a second time!”

    Hi Usha:

    I like to say Dearest and Nearest to sweeten you up after sticking up for CBK.
    I am driven by my desire to see Tamil Rights and Dignity Restored and for that end I am willing to join with my enemies enemy.
    My enemy is the Paksas and the 5.8 million Racist which includes the Catholic Pensioner.

    *** I knew this was coming from you after the Acquittal of our beloved Jeya. Now I am certain that Federalism will be introduced within a short space of time.

    I have already commented that she was not Guilty and it was all cooked up by the one and only Thiruvarur Moona Karunanithi” the traitor. His family is the 26th Richest in India worth £3.5 billion and he sold us down the river for his business interests.
    He owned 26 Channels except Jeya TV and he was in power at the time and there was a censorship of the Atrocities by the Sri Lankan Army with the support of India under the Italian WITCH.

    Why was I convinced she was not Guilty the answer is as follows.

    1) All her assets were over valued ( Marble worth Rs 50 valued at Rs 500.
    But
    2) She bought everything from Bank Loans totalling 26 Crores
    3) She was wrongly accused of buying all the property from ill gotten money
    4) She was accused of spending 3 Crores on her foster sons wedding where as she only spent 26 Lakhs.

    A lot of people have over the years tried to stick dirt on her but I have said this before. The only thing you can stick on her is a Tampon but she is past that stage. Luny Swami found this out when Jeya invited him for tea along with a lot of other women to teach him a lesson. He ran away from the Exposure and he is still running.

    I read the previous Judgment and Judge Kunha relied on here say evidence.
    I knew acquittal was on the cards when Judge Kunha was Banished and the Finance Minister Jaitley paid the convict a Visit.

    That is history and we can move on.

    Mr.Modi needs her support in the Upper House and she will be a formidable force and Mr.Modi has already taken the first step to accommodate her. This is bad news for Sinhala Lanka. How much influence India has over Sri Lanka was evident from how India stopped all Chinese Involvement that threatened her Security. The 5.8 million Racists should have no illusions about this and that is why I have always said that Sri Lankas Sovereignty is limited to Indias Security.

    We are on course Ladies and Gentlemen, the “Lady’ is back “victorious” and “stronger” than ever.

    TO ACHIEVE FEDERALISM.

    But I don’t want to be over confident and sound a note of caution after what Karunanithi said.
    He said that the last word has not been spoken and I hope he is not proven to be correct as Indian Judicial Record is littered with adverse decisions on appeals to SC. DMK have already said that they will support the Karnataka Government in this but with the Establishment at the centre firmly in the Grip of the Iron Lady it might be a tall order.

    Let us hope and pray that there are no Further Appeals and I can sing

    Ellam Inpa Mayam.

      What we are witnessing – and that too for some years now post-2009 – is some welcome, growing – I venture to suggest – awakening and consciousness to justice and reality by
      many in the Sinhala side. This has also gone out to prevent a re-emergence of the growing Separatist cry in the NEP of the 1960/1970s. As Neville Jayaweera, former GA notes in his recent and refreshingly fine analysis “Jaffna – exorcising the past and holding the vision” Here is a man who has personally worked with Mrs. B, Dudley, JR and other senior politicians and who loves his country very dearly.
      Like many Tamils and some Sinhalese, he too is now part of the diaspora.

      (P4) …”more than the power it derives from an overwhelming superiority in numbers, what exalts any majority community, and endows it with a true greatness and moral authority, is its willingness to accord to all those other communities who lack the advantage of numbers, a status and a dignity equal to its own, and never let them feel marginalised or disadvantaged because they are fewer in number or because they are different in colour or beliefs……Unless and until Sri Lanka can produce leaders who can realise that truth and are willing to act on it, it will continue to be mired in conflict”

      (P189) …”a Nation cannot rise out of triumphalism for triumphalism is not only vulgar, coarse but hurtful and humiliating to those who for over six decades have been made to feel as f they did not belong here”

      (P190) “..the paramount need of the hour is for restraint and magnanimity…. The haemorrhaging has to end, wounds have to be healed and tears have to be wiped from every eye. Those tasks require great minds and large hearts at the helm. They require leaders of great vision- a vision that goes beyond tribalism and lighting crackers…leaders who are able to rise above pettiness and the enmities that have characterised our politics for six decades. Not least we need a whole new vocabulary to illuminate our discourse…”

      Clearly, there is no drought in the Sinhala side of those who can see outside the prism of ethnic prejudice and majoritarianism. But the problem appears to be in our so called system of governance able and good men are seated on the wrong side of the spectrum. That is Sri Lanka’s misfortune.

              Taraki “means star in Tamil” (sic) because Taraka means star in Sanskrit. Tamil is full of stolen (and corrupted as it’s not possible to express many basic human vocalisations in the primitive Tamil language) Sanskrit words.

              Incidentally this is also where the ludicrous claims of “Sinhalese is actually 95% Tamil!!1!” stem from – Sinhalese derives from Sanskrit and Pali, while Tamil corrupts the same root words to incorporate them into the ridiculously limited language.

                    SANKRIT was a north sub continent (To day India) language…TAMIL is a south subcontinent language….TAMIL is very different in alphabet ,pronunciation from Sanskrit a dead language today …

                    Pali another dead language was used for communication in the S.E Asaan region once ..

                    Buddhist scprits and prayers are in Pali ….not in Sinhala

                    TAMIL is the root language for all south Indian languages as well as Sinhala …

      As long as the Tamil IGP and CM believe in rule of law there is no problem.

      This will never happen. Not because there are racists in either side. Just because the global political arena will not allow this to happen. It will be a dead lock always as long as Sri Lanka remain in this geological location.

    I can see that you heroine worship Ammah.In her salad days she was called Selvi!
    What bothers me though was the undue haste of the Judge in delivering the verdict.It took just 3 Minutes[Indian Media].

    On the other hand ,this case was being heard over 18 Years.
    The Public Prosecutor,it is reported did not know what hit him!
    The defense Lawyers did not know whether they were coming or going!

      wehen he becomes a leading light in the forthcoming Eelam that Amma Jayalalitha is surely going to win.

        Kali, Usha are the very pest of the tamil society, undermining values of tolerance, justice and fair play and multi ethnicity.

        They spread their hatred like contagion creating more mistrust among already fractured ethnic populations.

        I would not have been provoked to write this if your I had not read your fitting reply.

          Now I have access to part of Hugh Neville’s collection translated and published.

          I also know where to get the rest.

          Once copied and scanned will send you by attachment in about two three weeks.

          Very aptly said Ken.

          I am all for people who can unite the communities despite the differences, the past and whatever that is keeping them apart.

          There are certain elements who are thriving on the disunity for their personal gain.

      Usha my dear Child:

      SEE NO EVIL , FEAR NO EVIL when Maha Kalis spell is on you.
      Start apreading the news ” Yalpanam ” Yalpanam here I come.
      You know I takee different forms.

      Pathra Kali will deal with the 5.8 million.

    Do not get mixed up with geography of the North. Thondamannar & VVT.
    I do not want to elaborate on this.

    Karl.singham.

    I do share your assessment of Kali.Perhaps,Usha,has pulled off the sink ,line and hook before Ammah has been vindicated.Frankly,I see Ushas essay in finding a solution to the problems faced by Tamils in Srilanka,by appealing to anyone in South-India! This,unfortunately is totally irrational!

      The Hindians in New Delhi destabilized this island through their Southern politicians. Each Tamil leader in Tamil Nadu was given a Tamil group from this island to handle.

      It all depend on what the Hindians want, how do they want, when do they want, ….. The Southern Tamil Nadu politicians will have to play along with Hindians in the South Block.

    Yes she was acquitted, wait till other chartes come to court, if this lady has any sense, she should lie low. She is a spent force, lucky courts released after massing such a vast illegal wealth. This shows how corrupt politicians are, and the glee expressed by false minded people like Usha.

      “She is a spent force, lucky courts released after massing such a vast illegal wealth.”

      It depends on what Arun Jaitley and BJP expected of her. I wouldn’t discount her if I were you.

      “Yes she was acquitted, wait till other chartes come to court, if this lady has any sense, she should lie low.”

      Would you not give the same advice to those Southern war criminals and members of the kleptocracy?

      “This shows how corrupt politicians are, and the glee expressed by false minded people like Usha.”

      Forget Usha and Jayalalitha for a minute. So you agree that Southern politicians in this island are not saints but corrupt to the core.
