DO IT OR DEPART, JAYALALITHAA TELLS MANMOHAN SINGH!
J. Jayalalithaa, leader of the Anaitha India Anna Dravis Munnethra Kalaham (AIADMK) party has demanded that Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh step down if he is not capable of finding a solution to end the mid sea attacks on Indian fishermen, says the Times of India.
Jayalaithaa had said that the reason for continuing attacks on Tamil Nadu fishermen was, ‘A weak government and a weak and non performing prime minister’.
In her statement to the Times of India, she had further stated that the Centre and state government had failed to protect the fishermen, adding that the root cause of the problems faced by Tamil Nadu fishermen was the ceding of the Katchatheevu islet to Sri Lanka in the 1970s.
According to the Times of India, Jayalalithaa had also demanded that the island be retrieved from Sri Lanka so that Indian fishermen could fish in those waters. Meanwhile, a group of Tamil Nadu fishermen engaged in a protest yesterday stating that they are being harassed by the Sri Lankan Navy.
According to South India’s Sun TV, fishermen from 11 locations had engaged in this protest abstaining from their daily work.
Fishermen from the areas of Kanya Kumari, Tuticorin and Ramanadanpuram in Tamil Nadu are engaged in the protest.
They demanded that they be provided with adequate security.

Jayalalitha is playing politics to garner votes to be CM of TN. When she was CM she accepted huge bribes and was found guilty and sentenced to 6 yrs in prison. She is now fishing in troubled waters again.
Katchchativu belongs to SL from ancient times and was proven to be so from Dutch records. Indira Gandhi conceded it. It is highly deplorable for Jayalalitha to claim otherwise without evidence.
Jayalalitha has no evidence that SL navy killed Indian fishermen in Indian waters. Even if Indian fishemen are caught by SL navy fishing in SL waters They would not kill them but arrest them and their boats/trawlers. That is the policy. Our navy is noble and does not behave like Somali pirates. They proved their mettle during the War of Liberation against LTTE ‘navy’.
I think this killing of a few Indian fishermen is the devious and evil ploy of so-called Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam, in a joint devious plan with Tamil nationalists in Tamil Nadu, such as Vaiko, Nedumaran and Kanimozhi. There are many LTTE former ‘marines’ who are in hiding in TN under the wing of TN nationalists. It is very easy for them to launch a trawler carrying SL flag and naval colours, dressed in captured SL navy uniforms. It is the subtle ploy of diaspora LTTE to create intense conflict between India and SL by killing a few Indian fishermen and blaming SL navy for it through TN politicians and by rousing demonstrations in TN and by attacking SL interests in TN.
SL Defence Minister need to visit Indian Defence Minister with navy commander urgently to prove there is no evidence the SL navy was responsible for these murders, but it may be the work of Tamil nationalists and diaspora LTTE in TN. India and SL must join hands in scouring their shores and the Palk Straits for the secret trawler used by Tamil extremists in TN, disguised as a SL navy vessel, to carry out these dastardly acts.
Sri Lanka is killing tamils and indians to garner support for Sinhala nationalism. When they were losing, they accepted india’s helps and begged for help and intelligence. They are now fishing in troubled waters again.
Katchchativu belongs to India from ancient times and was proven to be so from records. Indira Gandhi conceded it because lanka was a friendly nation. It was ceded with the understanding that Indian fisherman can fish in the waters near it without any legal or military hinderance. It was ceded with the understanding that Indian fisherman could dry their nets there and also attend the famous religious service. It is highly deplorable for Lanka to claim otherwise with impunity.
Lanka has always killed Indian fishermen in Indian and Lankan waters. Even if Indian fishemen are caught by SL navy fishing in SL waters, they should not kill them but arrest them and their boats/trawlers, unless it was near Katchatheevu which is allowed by international agreement. That is the policy. Lanka navy is a rogue navy and behaves like Somali pirates. They proved their mettle during the War when they killed 20000 innocent civilians after asking them to go to a safe area.
I think this killing of a few Indian fishermen is the devious and evil ploy of so-called Sinhalese nationalist, in a joint devious plan with government in Lanka, such as the three Rajapakse. There are many Lankan former ‘marines’ who are waiting to kill more tamils. It is very easy for them to launch a trawler carrying weapons given by the SL government to kill innocent fisherman. It is the subtle ploy of Lanka to create intense conflict between India and SL and then bring China into the equation.
SL Defence Minister need to visit Indian Defence Minister with navy commander urgently to prove there is no evidence the SL navy was responsible for these murders, but they won’t do this because there is ample evidence. India must protect its citizens at all costs, even if this means replacing the Lankan government with a more friendly India-centric one. The legal binding when Katchatheevu was conceded is that Indian fisherman can fish near the island and Lanka is not living up to this agreement. If they can kill Lankan citizens with such ease, it is even easier for them to carry out these dastardly acts against Indians.
Let the Sinhalese army and government ensure that the rule of law prevail in the “sovereign” areas of Sri Lanka. Let them treat all their citizens as equals and human beings. Let Mahinda’s regime come clean on its humanitarian aspect. Let them first ensure free participation of their PRESIDENT in American and European nations. Then they can claim their innocence (as they are in-no-sense).
Senseless racism and autocratic rule has blinded the soul of the Sinhalese nation. Lankan army and navy are notorious for their conduct and behavior.
Tamil Nationalism is a word coined out of the Sinhalese mindless racism. Had they behaved as human beings and respected their fellow men, they would also respect their neighboring country men. A nation that ruined its own people can be trusted to eat up its neighbors also.
Jayalalithaa is national in her own soil. She has been acquitted and exonerated in 12 out of the 13 cases foisted by the then DMK government. Let the Sinhalese understand their own history, then comment on politicians of other nations.
I think we need to take care of this matter. Every one tri re start the bad thin again. We need to open our Eyes and Mind for like this situation.
Srilanka is creating lot of enemies by going blind to all these demonstrations. India is like a elephant, moves very slow but once it strikes, there is no second chance
Jayalalitha, don’t sell dead human bodies for votes. Its a shameful thing. If you cannot prove then rather than making hollo noises, you better shut-up. It is very easy to dance to an exciting story which may very end up as load of bull $#!^ . No one has yet established this Navy shooting incident as truth except what one fisherman said. One fisherman’s word will not be held against a whole navy.
What if one Sri Lankan fisherman says that his friend was killed yesterday at sea while fishing, by Indian Army? Do you all put the same weight on that story and jump up and down?
The world knows that Jayalalitha is a narrow sighted foolish and corrupt politician just because of her foolish and stupid noises without any facts or proof behind. She may have been acquitted in many court cases in corrupt Tamil Nadu where powerful politicians can do anythying even in court cases. It doesn’t mean that she can make sense in her work.
Lovely tirade. The same applies to politicians in Sri Lanka who blame non-existent entities for strange happenings.
India is viewing this incident quite seriously to the extent of flying across their Foreign Secretary to meet with the Dharaneeshwara Kalyani.
This means apparently India has substantial evidence to support their concern for their citizens unlike in Sri Lanka, where leading investigative journalists have simply gone missing for more than 500 days and mum’s the word from those responsible for maintaining security of the country’s citizenry.
D.C. It appears that you have a reason to party!
By the way who the fcuk is daraneswara kalyana… some one related to you? your biological or IVF mother that you have never seen or who? Looks like you have an anxiety about that whoever and you are the only one who talks about that someone.
Maju: here’s who Dharaneeshwara Kalyani is:
The Kalyaniwansa Chapter of the Amarapura Maha Sangha Sabha yesterday honoured President Mahinda Rajapaksa with the Sri Lanka Dharaneeshwara Kalyani title in recognition of his exceptional service in steering the country towards victory over terrorism.
The presentation of the honorary title was held at the 200th year celebration of the Sri Kalyaniwansa chapter at Temple Trees yesterday. Over 1,000 erudite monks led by the Mahanayake of the Amarapura Sri Sangha Sabha Most Ven Dauldena Gnanisswara Thera were present. The Maha Sangha belonging to the Sri Kalyaniwansa Chapter bestowed the honorary title on the President for liberating the country which was on the verge of being separated at the hands of LTTE terrorists.
The Kalyaniwansa chapter was established by Most Ven Sri Kathaluwe Gunarathnatissa Mahanayake Thera in 1810 after receiving higher ordination from Ramanna State in Myanmar.
The descendants of this chapter has rendered immeasurable service to revive Buddhism in the country and the world. Several books written by a number of erudite monks on the Kalyaniwansa chapter were presented to the President and Prime Minister D M Jayaratne.
Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Jayaratne lauded the social and religious service rendered by the Sri Kalyaniwansa chapter during the last two centuries.
Thanks for the detail. Very informative. However, do you have a problem with Mahinds receiving this award? Also please tell me if Mahinda is the only one in the whole history of Sri lanka who received this award or were there any others? Or you didn’t care to find out?
I am asking because by refering someone by an award he/she received and then there can be many people who have received the same award and all those people can be attached to or affected by the story. Inability to address someone from his/her unique name can be poor journalism I would say because it fails to create clarity among readers.
Thanks for the compliment. The Sri Kalyaniwansa Chapter has awarded a series of titles all ending in “Kalyani” but have specific descriptors attached in front to distinguish the receiver. I use the term “Dharaneeshwara Kalyani” as a sign of reverence to Sri Lanka’s leader.
