Swamy: cancel visas of LTTE propagandists

[Hindu, Monday, 8 June 2009 20:36 2 Comments]

The Union government should cancel the visas of Sri Lankan citizens who are campaigning against their government on Indian soil, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy said here on Monday.

“Most of them are pro-LTTE propagandists,” he said. Sri Lankan citizens had no right to campaign against that country using Indian soil.

“If Indians campaign against the Indian government among foreigners abroad, we Indians will not tolerate it and, in fact, suspect foreign governments of planning to destabilise our country. Hence we cannot practise double standards in such delicate matters,” he said.

    The Jain Commission had cast a doubt on this swamy suspecting him to be the real murderer of Rajiv Gandhi and he has escaped from it with the tacit support of Indian Government.

    He very well knows the sufferings the tamilians are ungergoing now in Srilanka. Having not taken the cause of the sufferings of tamilians people can easily know what character of a person he is.

    It is a sad thing that BJP and other smaller parties alligned with him and contested the recent elections.

    God knows what underground work he is doing against the Indian Government to destabilise it.

    Swamy is a well known political joker in Tamil Nadu. Just ignore him.
