The Formidable Jayalalithaa – Unrivalled Leader Of The Tamils

Jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity – Part 2

The Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, the formidable J Jayalalithaa is on a roll.  In my article,  Jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity part 1, I said Jayalalithaa “is sitting pretty”.  That was before the elections. [1] Now after her “historic and unparalleled win’ at the Lok Sabha elections, capturing 37 seats out of 39, Jayalalithaa, “Tamilnadu’s Lady”, the name she gave herself, has reached a highpoint in her illustrious political career with a high popularity rating to match – she has indeed reached the pinnacle. Yet some might disagree, when she has yet another goal to achieve, that of Prime Minister of India. Why does she need that although we won’t discount it.  Why does she need that, when she is the indisputable, inimitable, unrivalled and proven leader of all Tamils the world over, not just India.

In modern parlance Jayalalithaa “rocks” meaning she astounds.

It’s not just Jayalalithaa’s incredible tenacity that stands out more and more – add consistency, reliability, dependability and loyalty to the list. Unquestionably these are the attributes that make a great world leader and she has got it all!

Not only that, with her determination, resoluteness and indefatigable spirit, Jayalalithaa stands out and outshines her rivals.

There were times when for instance NDTV’s Truth vs Hype [2] and other similar programmes tried to portray her as buying her votes with handouts (a culture started by the DMK Jayalalithaa has said). Although many analysts actually doubted her victory this time on, with the emergence of the ‘Rainbow Coalition’ forged by the BJP, she came out triumphant.

Indeed Jayalalithaa proved all her critics wrong by her remarkable win!

The “lady is not for turning” I said in Part 1, quoting Margaret Thatcher’s famous phrase. [3]

jaya-mainNow as I write Part 2, she is “Tamilnadu’s Lady”: the one who stands taller than any other man you can name in India and why not the world! Yes, even the man who is now Prime Minister of India and she has statistics to prove it.

At the elections running on her achievements and that of her opposition in Tamilnadu, she didn’t wish to and wouldn’t attack Narendra Modi, the BJP prime ministerial candidate because of the cordiality that existed between them; this was how it was until the final days of her campaign, when according some analysts, Narendra Modi  visited  ‘Superstar’ Rajinikanth’s home  and got his endorsement; the cordial relationship between Jayalalithaa and Modi apparently was not so cordial anymore.

Sherkhar Iyer for The Hindustan Times opines that Jayalalithaa’s attack came after Modi’s “much publicised visit to film star Rajinikanth’s house and the actor declaring his support for him” [4] :

Sherkhar Iyer writes as he quotes an AIADMK insider:

“Jayalalithaa is not likely to take a soft view of Modi’s interaction with Rajinikanth, who has not been on friendly terms with her since 1996 when he came out against Amma.”

Little did Modi realise he was making a grave mistake, for “Tamilnadu’s Lady” gave him a roasting that he won’t easily forget: [5]

Addressing her Tamilnadu constituency, rattling off statistical comparisons that seemed like a performance evaluation of herself and Modi, Jayalalithaa lashed out with facts and figures although, as they say, a lot gets lost in translation which I shall attempt to do:

From 2001 -2012  crimes against women had increased by 65% in Gujarat, she said, where as it had reduced by 29% in TN;  from 2005-2013 the number of incidents relating to religious and racial tensions was 479 in Gujarat as opposed to 237 in TN she said; in terms of welfare schemes the people most benefited were the people from the State of Tamilnadu compared to Gujarat where the opposite was true, she said; for instance food rations sold in the black market in Gujarat was high as 63% and in Tamilnadu it was a only just 4%; the overall growth in TN was an inclusive one that encompassed the poor and the destitute she concluded, posing a question: “Tell me my beloved people, the voters of Tamilnadu, who is the best administrator, is it Gujarat’s Modi or Tamilnadu’s Lady.” And wow her “beloved”  Tamilnadu responded with a resounding endorsement of “Tamilnadu’s Lady”, Jayalalithaa giving her a record breaking win at the Lok Sabha elections where she garnered more than 94% of the seats, whilst over all Modi won only 60% of the seats!

Despite all the hype, the so called “Modi Wave” in Tamilnadu turned out to be an “illusion”. It was undeniably the “Amma Wave” that came out like a tsunami with more than 70% voter turnout. Jayalalithaa even defied many election forecasts and surpassed Times Of India’s Exit Polls projection of 31 seats by winning 37 seats. [6]  [7]

Jayalalithaa’s main opponent DMK projected to win 7+ seats did not win a single seat and its one time coalition partner the Congress Party got 0 seats as well. The BJP (with its allies) projected to win 4+ seats won just one whilst the PMK a BJP ally also won a seat.

Shastri Ramachandran for The Citizen puts forward the argument that in a sense, Jayalalithaa is a bigger winner than Narendra Modi: [8]

“Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa is a bigger winner than BJP’s Narendra Modi in the Lok Sabha elections in one sense. With the AIADMK of ‘The Lady’ bagging 37 out of the 39 seats, her score is over 90 per cent. In contrast, Modi, even after taking the BJP comfortably ahead of the 272-mark, has scored only a little more 60 per cent…The AIADMK has emerged as the third largest party, just ahead of Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress.”

Ramachandran even speculates that with Jayalalithaa’s emergence as the “third largest party” and Congress party’s poor showing, she could be the leader of the opposition with Modi’s “prompting”. He further analyses that although Modi may not need her help at the Lok Sabha, he would “have use for Amma’s nine (soon to be ten) members in the Rajya Sabha, where the BJP is a minority.”

“…the BJP and Narendra Modi do not need the big block of AIADMK MPs in the Lok Sabha to get on with their business in Parliament and government. However, the BJP, which is in a minority in the Rajya Sabha, may have use for Amma’s nine (soon to become 10) members in the Upper House,” he writes.

Jayalalithaa has shown she has mettle, forthrightness and an enduring loyalty to her causes that she upstages her peers every time. In a display of sheer defiance and courage, she boycotts Narendra Modi’s swearing in ceremony and decides not to send a “representative” either.

In a letter to Prime Minister designate Modi, Jayalalithaa, writing very pointedly with an absolute sense of purpose and no ambiguity, had words for the “new Government to be formed at the Centre” and the “previous Central Government, showing her “anguish and dismay” at the invitation afforded to Mahinda Rajapaksa, despite “the entire country and indeed the entire world” being aware of “the various resolutions” her “State Legislative Assembly” had passed “with regard to  war crimes, ethnic pogrom and genocide perpetrated against the Sri Lankan Tamil people by the Sri Lankan Army under the Rajapaksa Government”.

Jayalalithaa considering the Modi’s move to be “ill advised”, wrote, it could have been better “avoided”.

Jayalalithaa pulls no punches in her criticism of both governments, virtually blaming the Congress led government of “trampling on the sentiments of Tamils” by its continued “inaction” during its tenure and the new BJP government of being neither “sympathetic to the cause of Tamils” nor “friendly to the State of Tamil Nadu” and for “deeply upsetting the people of Tamilnadu” and “wounding their sentiments all over again” by the move to invite Rajapaksa, which she said is, ” tantamount to rubbing salt into the wounds of the already deeply injured Tamil psyche”. [9]

Her letter truly illustrates that Jayalalithaa has assumed the role of guardian of the Eelam Tamil people and has a total grasp of the issues at stake:

“I have noted with dismay reports  in the media that the Sri Lankan President, Thiru Mahinda Rajapaksa has been invited to the Swearing-in Ceremony of the new Prime Minister of India and that the Sri Lankan President has accepted the invitation and stated that he will be present at the ceremony.  The sentiments of the people of Tamil Nadu and Tamils living in other parts of India and abroad are well known in the matter pertaining to Sri Lankan Tamils. There has been a General Election to the Lok Sabha and a new Government is to take charge in a few days, but this in no way alters the already existing strained relations  between Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka.  The entire country and indeed the entire world is aware of the various Resolutions passed in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly during the last three years, with regard to the war crimes, ethnic pogrom and genocide perpetrated against the Sri Lankan Tamil people by the Sri Lankan Army under the Rajapaksa Government in Sri Lanka during the final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka.  We had demanded an economic embargo on Sri Lanka and urged that India should take the lead in bringing a Resolution in the United Nations for those accused of war crimes and genocide to be brought before the International Court of Justice and that they should be made to face trial.  But, the previous Central Government chose to ignore the Resolutions passed by the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly by not taking any action  and thereby trampled on the sentiments of the Tamils. We had hoped that the new Government to be formed at the Centre would be sympathetic to the cause of Tamils and friendly to the State of Tamil Nadu. However, even before the new Prime Minister and the new Government assume office and begin functioning, this unfortunate move of inviting the Sri Lankan President to attend the Swearing-in Ceremony of the new Prime Minister of India has deeply upset the people of Tamil Nadu and wounded their sentiments all over again. This is tantamount to rubbing salt into the wounds of the already deeply injured Tamil psyche.

It is with a deep sense of anguish that we point this out to the new Government to be formed at the Centre. Particularly, with regard to the relationship of the new Central Government with the Government of Tamil Nadu, it would have been better if this ill advised move had been avoided. ” [10] 

What a snub by her, to a man Jayalalithaa was hoping would be “friendly” towards Tamilnadu and what a letdown by a man who promised to extend his full “cooperation” to her. [11]

A Member of SAARC or not, Sri Lanka’s Rajapaksa had no place in Modi’s swearing-in. As a mark of solidarity with and respect for the concerns and wishes of the State of Tamilnadu, Modi should have shown more sensitivity towards a member of the Federation of Indian States. After all wasn’t Modi going to be the Prime Minister of all India and all of its people?

And what better advocate can Eelam Tamils have than Jayalalithaa?. No one else can be a stronger voice or be in a position to send a stronger message to the Indian Government at the Centre and thereby to the entire world than Jayalalithaa? She boycotted the Modi event at a cost to her surely, that could affect her, losing out on a possible role “at the Centre”, who knows if Ramachandran is right? Who knows if Modi is a person who holds grudges.

It was Jayalalithaa who led the call for economic sanctions against Sri Lanka, now suggested by others such as Paul Dewar, the Opposition Critic for Foreign Affairs, similarly by John Baird, Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister who has said he is with-holding funding to the Commonwealth as long as Sri Lanka is Chair and Hugo Swire, Minister of State in the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office “expressing concerns” about Sri Lanka, as the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow gets closer.

Who better can safeguard Eelam Tamils better than Jayalalithaa? No matter what, regardless of the Sri Lankan government being “happy” that according to it, with Modi’s majority, “Jayalalithaa has lost clout in New Delhi,” Jayalalithaa is still Sri Lanka’s biggest headache, when it come to India, the one woman in the way, hampering its relationship with India’s Central Government. [12]

Whilst Modi told Rajapaksa to “expedite the national reconciliation in a manner that meets the aspirations of the Tamil community for a life of equality, justice, peace and dignity in a united Sri Lanka by implementing the 13th Amendment and going beyond,” as per Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh’s opening remarks at her press briefing [13] Jayalalithaa on the other hand, knowing the true aspirations of Eelam Tamils has always called for a referendum on Eelam, with the Tamil Diaspora also being eligible to vote.

That’s the difference!

There is a need to articulate what “beyond” means. Would land and police powers be included. Will there be a federal structure as per the mandate that TNA obtained. There is need to review the 13th Amendment in the light of the 18th amendment and the Divineguma Bill that has become law to determine if 13 A carries with it actual devolution of power to the Tamils. Additionally for any free and fair discussion it is imperative that the 6th Amendment be relaxed.

Incidentally whilst Modi’s side had briefed the press precisely on what transpired, Sri Lanka’s press release after the meeting said nothing of that kind. I am beginning to wonder whether this is how Sri Lankans are lied to by their President, the Presidential Spokesman and the Media Unit. Shame! [14]

Narendra Modi and his External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj should be wary of Rajapaksa and should realise the lies and the broken promises made up to date. As Eelam Tamils hope for a new dawn with Narendra Modi at the helm, hopefully “Tamilnadu’s Lady ” Jayalalithaa would help him to write a new script for a political settlement in keeping with their true aspirations that would restore for them their lost freedom, land & dignity.

      Gobi,
      She will never be the prime Minister of India. So, she should first have a referendum in Tamil Nadu for separation from India and become the Prime minister of Tamil Elam Nadu.

      PS. Tamils of Sri Lanka also should be eligible to vote and move to Tamil Elam Nadu.

        “PS. Tamils of Sri Lanka also should be eligible to vote and move to Tamil Elam Nadu.”

        Excellent Idea.

        The Para-Tamils and Para-Sinhala should move back to their native land South India, from the Land of Native Veddah.

        Then there will be peace and tranquility in the Land of Native Veddah, like the old days before the arrival of the Paras by illegal boats, hora-oru and kalla-thoni.

          Amarasiri,
          I like your posts. But what is this ‘para’ Tamil/Sinhalese talk which I guess is based on history. You should not dwell too much on history because you can’t change it. Why not think about the current situation and write how that can be changed.

            eusense,

            Good point. Need to keep trying…too many ignorant people..

            The problem is that those characters, the so called Jatika Hela Urumaya, Sinhala Ravaya etc. base their claim on convoluted, non-factual lies and imaginations, that goes back to Para-monk Mahanama “Buddhism” in the Mahawansa, This is the only language and argument they will understand.

            Read, The Church, Aristotle, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler and Newton, and the Geocentric and Heliocentric models.

            Do you believe in Astrology? It is based on the incorrect Geocentric model.

            Still 25% of the American and Europeans believe in the Geocentric model, 400 years later.

            In 1600, 99.99% of the people believe din the Geocentric Model.

            So, the Half-life is 200 years.

            99% in 1600
            50% in 1800
            25% in 2000
            12.5% in 2200
            6.25% in 2400
            3.125% in 2600

      Get Jayalalitha to ask Modi to make Tamil Nadu the Eelam Nation. Modi won a lanslide victory in the whole of India, but is it surprising, the Tamils only voted for the Tamils! The only Tamil BJP candidate took his oath in English and not in ‘Hindi’ the national language of India!
      The most racial group in the world!

        “The only Tamil BJP candidate took his oath in English and not in ‘Hindi’ the national language of India!”

        Is there anything wrong in not taking oath in Hindi? Is it a criminal offence? Why should everyone take oath in Hindi?

        Indian national anthem is in Bengali language. Why?

        Here is something that most stupid people never learned, excerpt from Hindu:

        Updated: January 25, 2010 17:41 IST

        Hindi, not a national language: Court

        Gujarat High Court has observed that though majority of people in India have accepted Hindi as a national language, there was nothing on record to suggest that any provision has been made or order issued declaring Hindi as a national language of the country.

        ……..

        …….

        However, in the constitution, Hindi was declared as an official language and not a national language.

        The court in its order said Part XVII of the Constitution deals with Official Language. Under Article 343, official language of the Union has been prescribed, which includes Hindi in Devanagari script and English.

    “Tamils want dignity”

    Look, I am thinking out here. I suppose if Tamils want dignity it must be Sinhala and Moslem that give it to them.

    Are you sure this is the right way because typically things like dignity and respect are earned. What have the Tamils done recently to earn Sinhala and Moslem dignity?

          Some aspects of dignity is one’s birth right.

          I think you are confused.

          “No one is going to offer it to anyone on a platter and that includes the Tamils wherever they live.”

      Vibushana:

      Whoever told you that the Tamils can expect or for them to give any dignity from the Sinhala and Moslem people? The Tamils have long started to look for that from the outside world. Do you still remember the resolution passed by the NPC on the UNRC resolution? And don’t forget that the CM of the NPC had even turned down the invitation of your president to accompany him for Modi’s premiership oath ceremony. The days of believing the Sinhalese and Moslems ended when thousands of Tamils died and the two races collaborated to annihilate the Tamils. So, you can dump your dignity at the feet of the Rajapakses for all we care.

        Dear jansee

        You sound quite emotional there. Sounds like I hurt your feelings. If its any consolation I would like to set the record straight.

        “Tamils died and the two races collaborated to annihilate the Tamils. “

        I suppose you are referring the last phase when LTTE was smashed. Look I don’t want to racial profile you and come to pre-determined conclusions what you may say. Although, I want to see if there is any hope for resetting my expectations.

        Please refer to Page 20, table 1, row 6, col 4. The data attached were collected by over 2500 Tamil school teachers.

          Vibushana:

          Hahaha… A very colorful and well presented report but when this comes from “Department of Census and Statistics, Ministry of Finance and Planning, Sri Lanka, it can be hardly surprising and inspiring. How do you expect us to believe something coming from a regime that continuously and consistently insisted of zero civilian casualties. Now that the NPC is carrying out its own census and that an independent investigation is looming on SL, I will rather wait for the results from these sources.

          Let me be clear though. I am not a dogmatic person and have been as objective as possible. If you had the occasion to read many of my comments immediately after the war concluded I had supported a speedy reconciliation and moving on with life but the events that surfaced subsequently and the many lies and deceits of the regime that we could see through quite easily, bluffing around with delaying tactics, and the way the girls and women have been raped and murdered have hardened our position. Elsewhere I have written how MR and his brothers have grossly screwed up the one great opportunity to lead a country out of its past but failed and/or refused.

          A lot of water has flown under the bridge since the war has ended and many of us hoped and believed that a new era had dawned, despite the pain and hurt inflicted. For now, nothing else crosses our minds except to get the perpetrators of the heinous crimes, and particularly those inflicted on the girls and women. That essentially tipped the scale. A good leader doesn’t sit on such horrific acts against defenseless girls/women. SL has to carry this shame forever. What kind of Buddhism these jokers actually practice? Animistic??

      “I suppose if Tamils want dignity it must be Sinhala and Moslem that give it to them.”

      The point is that don’t take away their dignity, irrespective of their race, religion or region.

      I suppose you are not familiar with the word dignity which must be too foreign to you.

      If a criminal (for example a politician) kidnaps your daughter, gang rape her, disfigure her and then takes photos of her naked body and circulates among his fellow criminals, would you still expect her to earn dignity from those criminals?

    Oh Boy… ‘Jayalalitha rocks”

    Will this bragging by new hipster, LTTE Skanadaraj rock the boat and force Jayalaitha to drown in Sethusamudra Canal?

    Modi is a .rare breed. Born a Sudhra brought up in poverty and win the brahamin dominated Indian Prime Ministership in such a landslide with an absolute majority is unparalalled in Indian Parliamentary History.

    How dare this LTTE lackey trying to put such an achiever on the same level as a corrupt Politician who has stashed ill gotten crores even in Swiss banks.

    And has faced courts many times over corruption issues.

    Vaiko has definitely done a fab job to turn the whole Tamil Nadu into an Eelaam.

    No wonder Modi got him locked up during the inauguration ceremony.

    Hopefully Jayalalitha got the message before she tries to push the envelope too far.

    There are only 60 Million under her,That is if they have all been converted by Vaiko.

    Modi has the backing of over 1000 Million.

      It’s your assumption that every Tamil is LTTE member.How dare you expect reconciliation to come through with this mentality.You Sinhalese are of the opinion that occupying Tamil home lands are legal.Tamils have been in the North and East for more than the period you all were living in south.Now you are using the armed forces to kill all Tamils and want to kill and harass people living their by armed force.

      What ever nonsense you write will never succeed as the whole world knows about the past and the perpetrated bloody killing of the innocent by the regime and the armed forces role in North and east.

      There is no way you could defend your lies about land claim and also to show proof to the world that your claim of North and East is genuine.Past 60 years Tamils have been subjected to various forms of annihilation riots and killings by Sinhalese politicians,thugs and Buddhist monks.

      If you cannot find a solution there is no other option Tamils will get together and finally Eelam is inevitable.

      Fresh from his visit to New Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s swearing-in, Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa today ordered officials to quicken the progress of a coal-fired power plant being built jointly with India. Last October, Sri Lanka and India had announced the finalisation of USD 512 million joint venture coal-powered electricity plant in Sampur in the eastern port district of Trincomalee.

        “You are in the grip of Indian Monsoon and Eelam is in the making and make no mistake.”

        Remember with the last Hindian monsoon the Eelam project was swept away in the bay of Bengal.

        When Hindians are really angry with Sinhala/Buddhist state they tend to hammer the Tamils. Don’t make the Hindians get angry with the Sinhala/Buddhists once again for they are likely to kick Eelam bums.

    Usha:

    I have been an ardent supporter of Jayalalitha and that she is the undisputed leader of the Tamils in India and the world over. Her unwavering support for the SL Tamils cause has no parallel.

    It is in this instance that the Tamils the world over cannot forget the unassailable Seeman, without whom the Tamils would have lost their voices to others like MK and the Congress. He has been the behind-the scenes person with whom any Tamil can derive a sense of belonging and security.

  • 8
    8

    All these warming up to Jayalalitha by the LTTE cronies like Usha will not help the SL Tamils. Jayalalitha will never ever do anything worthwhile to help the SL Tamils. Jayalalitha will only use the SL Tamil issue to increase her vote bank in TN and as a leverage against Karunanidhi and his DMK. Resolutions passed by her at the TN State Assembly in support of SL Tamils are just empty gestures. It never had any real effect on Indian Central Government’s policy towards SL Tamils. Modi Government simply ignored her call to withdraw the invitation to MR for the swearing in ceremony.

    Modi will now turn his attention to the states where his party did not do well in the just concluded Lok Sabhe elections. Certainly he will have his sight on Tamil Nadu and he will strengthen the BJP Alliance there. With TN State Assembly elections to come in one and a half years time, he will be more focussed on strengthening his party’s tie with Vijay Kanth and Ramadas. Naturally having seen BJP sweeping the elections in North India,more Tamils in TN will now come forward to join BJP. If BJP Alliance can tie up with Karunanidhi and his DMK, Jayalalitha will be doomed at the next TN Assembly election. She won those many seats in Lok Sabha elections because of the money power and state power and because of the five way split of votes.

    Modi government will follow the same policy that was followed by the previous Congress government in relation to Sri Lanka. There will be no Tamil Eelam for these LTTE cronies. Modi government will deal effectively to neutralise the pro-LTTE extremist forces in TN who are being bank-rolled by LTTE elements in the West. Modi government will not go along with US in dealing with Sri Lanka. He will have his own mind and will not follow the path of Manmohan Singh in his dealings with Colombo. With Susma as Foreign Minister, MR will feel more easy and may even come forward to give various concessions to India’s interests.

    Apparently it was Narendra Modi who advised Jayalalitha to get rid her one time aide VK Sasikala and her entire family. Apparently Sasikala was plotting to take over as the CM of TNA.How Modi got thewind of it I am not sure.

    jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity – Part 2

    “The Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, the formidable J Jayalalithaa is on a roll. In my article, Jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity part 1, I said Jayalalithaa “is sitting pretty”. That was before the elections. [1] Now after her “historic and unparalleled win’ at the Lok Sabha elections, capturing 37 seats out of 39, Jayalalithaa, “Tamilnadu’s Lady”, the name she gave herself, has reached a highpoint in her illustrious political career with a high popularity rating to match – she has indeed reached the pinnacle. Yet some might disagree, when she has yet another goal to achieve, that of Prime Minister of India. Why does she need that although we won’t discount it. Why does she need that, when she is the indisputable, inimitable, unrivalled and proven leader of all Tamils the world over, not just India.”

    There is no question, Hon. Chief Minister, Mrs.Jayalalitha is a formidable leader in Tamil Nadu, capturing 37/39 =94.87% of the Lok Sabbha seats.

    Hon. Prime Minister Mr. Modi will be compelled to listen to her, especially if he were to accommodate his fellow Indians. She is going to ask Modi to make Sri Lanka respect the Indo-Lanka Accord commitments, which India was not able to fulfill because of Double Crossing by “His Excellency” President Mr. Premadasa.

    The 1,200,000,000 Indians can certainly marginalize the aspiration of 15,000.000 Para-Monk following Para-Sinhala in order to accommodate the humanistic Democratic Socialist needs of the 3,000,000 Para-Tamils, in the Land of Native Veddah, the so-called Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka,

    The world is bored with diatribes such as what the writer Usha has produced yet again. It is no good crying “look what we have suffered” when the whole world knows that the predicament they are in is as a result of their (radical and racist Tamils) own making. It is about time Usha and many other Tamils realise that one cannot get away with violent campaigns by Tamil terrorists, aided by Tamil diaspora against the Sinhalese. Jayalalita may be a hero to Tamils but others do not take notice of her – not even peoples of states adjoining Tamil Nadu. The welfare of Tamils in Sri Lanka depends on a new Tamil leadership to reconcile with the majority community. To begin that process it’s best to be distant from hoodlums in Tamil Nadu and wider diaspora. Praising a woman facing accusations of accumulating wealth by corrupt means is the last thing fair minded Tamils need.

      The Sinhalese hoodlums who just watched gleefully when the regime murdered thousands of civilians expect the Tamils to reconcile with a race that is bedeviled by hatred and hypocrisy. The Tamils have already reconciled with the fact that it is outside/international help and particularly from Tamilnadu that would give them any measure of protection. Silly of you to expect the Tamils to believe that vultures and murderers would protect the Tamils.

To say that Jayalalitha was a big winner in the past election says everything about the utter bias this author is showing towards Jayalalitha. Who cares that she got 37 of the 39 seats in the Lok Sabha. It all amounts to a hill of beans, because Modi doesn’t need to bow down to her party for anything. She had much, much more power under the Italian puppet regime of Manmohan Singh. Modi will try to be nice and throw some dosas Jayalalitha’s way (god knows she needs all the dosas she can ger hands on), but he doesn’t give two hoots about this far flung irritant.

    Modi invited Mahintha at the expense of even alienating the Iron Lady in order to deliver a message to MR at the earliest possible opportunity. After all the pomp and pageantry MR was hoping for a long meeting to hoodwink Modi with his charm but he was given 20 min slot( whereas Nawaz had a 3hour meeting) for the Charge Sheet to be read out and soon after that he was shown the door.
    The Charges were:

    1) Failure to implement 13th Amendment
    2) Failure to devolve power
    3) Failure to account for the missing persons.

    MR had the shock of his life after the drubbing and I have learnt from reliable sources that the Indian Authorities tried to contact MR for a progress report but are getting the following message.

    ” The number you are trying to call is engaged and please try in a few decades”.

    MR will not want go to Modi again even for his House Warming party just in case he encounters a Heat Wave.

    As for Jeyalalitha her power base is unchallengeable and she will live to fight another day. The Modi wave will peter out soon as the task head is a Herculean one in a Country like India and the arithmetic will be a different one at the next election .

        TN CM being invited to New Delhi has also come as a shock in Colombo. Soon TNA also will be invited to Chennai and Delhi. Ranil too will visit Delhi on PM Modi’s invitation.

    News for Sinhalese Modi Bootlickers

    Sources said BJP leaders have been in touch with Ms Jayalalithaa, who swept Tamil Nadu in the general elections. (File photo)
    New Delhi: J Jayalalithaa, Tamil Nadu chief minister, will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi on June 3, amid the buzz that she is in talks with the ruling BJP to join the central government.

    The AIADMK leader had skipped Mr Modi’s oath ceremony on Monday in protest against the presence of Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa. Officially, Tamil Nadu has said that she will meet Mr Modi on Tuesday to discuss issues related to her state’s growth. (Jayalalithaa to Boycott Narendra Modi’s Swearing-In Ceremony: Sources)

    Sources said BJP leaders have been in touch with Ms Jayalalithaa, who swept Tamil Nadu in the general elections, winning 37 of the state’s 39 Lok Sabha seats.

    That makes her party the third largest in Parliament, very close to the Congress, which has 44 MPs.

    The BJP has a majority on its own in the Lok Sabha with 282 seats and is very comfortable placed at 336 along with its pre-election partners in the National Democratic Alliance or NDA.

    But it needs to bolster its numbers in the upper house or the Rajya Sabha to be able to smoothly push through legislation. It currently has the 65 MPs of the national alliance it leads. The AIADMK has 11 Rajya Sabha MPs.

    The BJP reportedly also wants to ensure that regional powerhouses like the AIADMK, Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress and Naveen Patnaik’s BJD, each of whom scored big wins in their states to be among the bigger parties in Parliament, do not emerge as a strong political force against the government. Ms Banerjee has 12 MPs and Mr Patnaik has 6.

    Mr Modi has, sources said, instructed his ministers to make courtesy calls on the chief minister when they travel to Tamil Nadu.

    Ms Jayalalithaa is said to share a good rapport with Mr Modi and was seen in the run-up to the general elections as a natural ally would the BJP have needed support to form government.

    During the campaign, both leaders criticised each other as they addressed their voters. But after they emerged big winners on May 16 when votes were counted, they exchanged greetings and Mr Modi assured the state of the Centre’s support. (Election Barbs Behind Them, Modi and Jayalalithaa Talk on Phone)

    But Ms Jayalalithaa had sacked a party leader soon after for suggesting that the AIADMK would like “close ties” with the BJP. “Narendra Modi is great friend of Jayalalithaa, they may differ politically. If he becomes PM then Madam would like close ties,” former AIADMK leader K Malaisamy had said. (Jayalalithaa Expels Partyman Who Suggested She Would Ally With Modi)

            You never learn.

                You don’t need pill to commit suicide however your hatred towards others alone will kill you sooner than you think.

            Kali Mann, looks like u miss me !
            why didn’t you find any one to throw balls at you ? don’t worry time to time I’ll throw some balls at you.

            By the way u have Amma in Cunning JJ why make NM as Ayah ? make him your Appa, at least you will have a imaginary parents to worship.

            This lot will dump their own amma, appa, anna & akka even their manavi for self gain just like what they r doing now.

            How come C Amma didn’t get a part in the movie “Iorn Man” after all we all know Robert Downey Jr. is actor no one except him to perform the heroics in real life! Oops I forgot Kali man and likes live in dream world.

    Usha S-Sri Skanda Rajah’s gushing admiration for for Jayalalitha is misplaced. To me she is a female copy of Mahinda Rajapaksa. See below:

    1. Both acted in films and relish acting as a politician.
    2. Both criticized external players/forces to win the voters.
    3. Both divert opinion from domestic issues to external issues.
    4. Both are corrupt to the core.
    5. Both love it when citizens and ministers prostrate themselves before them.
    6. Both aspire to be treated as god/goddess.
    7. Both are racists, one a Sinhala racist, the other a Tamil racist.

    I do not admire them both. What is the problem with Usha?

      Have you been up to something?

      When did you become a match maker?

      Anyhow if your diplomatic moves help to end stalemate I wish them both well in advance.

    Usha, Sri Lanka cannot be divided. Every Sri Lankan, irrespective of race, religion or language want equal status not a separate state. My question to you Usha, in another 50 or 100 years are the Tamils living in the West going to demand a separate state in those countries? Every Sri Lankan, Tamils or Sinhalese come to Sri Lanka from India. The difference is timing of their arrival. I am not saying minorities do not have issues, yes minorities have major issues, but that does and will not end with a separate state. Lets us all work for equal rights and not for separate state. Another matter, make sure that no one in Sri Lanka or the west carry a Tiger Flag to protest. Tigers are terrorists. Any organization that attacks innocent civilians is a Terrorist organization, even if its a Government.
