Manmohan seeks advice of Karunanidhi on Sri Lanka issue
CHENNAI: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has sought the views and advice of Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi to accelerate the process of genuine reconciliation to resolve the ethnic issue in Sri Lanka.
Responding to the Chief Minister’s letter of July 3, Dr Singh, in his reply of July 9, stated, “My government will certainly do all that it can to enable the Tamils in Sri Lankan to live a life of dignity and self-respect. We will use our influence and make efforts to help in the restoration of normal life in northern and eastern Sri Lanka through rapid rehabilitation of the internally displaced persons [IDPs].”
Pointing out that the Union government had committed Rs. 500 crore for the purpose, the Prime Minister said the government would also render assistance in the construction of 50,000 houses for IDPs.
Besides, it was trying to restore normal economic activity in the areas by building infrastructure and promoting sustainable livelihood.
Thanking Mr. Karunanidhi for his letter on the situation of the Tamils, Dr. Singh mentioned that apart from his discussion with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa last month, he had recently met a delegation of Members of the Sri Lankan Parliament who belonged to the Tamil National Alliance.
Manmohan Singh in his reply to Karunanidhi’s blatant interference on internal matters in Sri Lanka should have pointed out Sri Lankan Tamils are Sri Lankans and not Indian Tamils or Malaysian Tamils or Tamils settled in Canada, EU and USA etc. These Tamils in Sri Lanka or in any other country are not Tamil Nadu Tamils. He cannot therefore speak for them.
Karunanidhi is strangely silent about the millions of Tamils in Tamil Nadu and in other cities of India who lead an utterly despicable life of grinding poverty and misery. What has he done to uplift their lives within Tamil Nadu and within India. He enjoys a life of comfort and luxury with all the creature comforts denied to the poor and the destitute Tamils in Tamil Nadu and in other cities of India. Why is he not campaigning for these Tamil nationals of his own State? Instead, he is every now and then uttering sound bytes to please the Tamil Nadu lobby extremists who were friends of VP and the LTTE and who are secretly campaigning for an autonomous Tamil Nadu which will also encompass Sri Lanka. That was the dream of VP and the LTTE. Imperial West also secretly encouraged it in order to sabotage and subvert India as a power player in the SE Asia.
Let Karunanidhi and all the Tamil Nadu extremist politicians remember Sri Lankan Tamils are very much better off as citizens of Sri Lanka and are better cared for under Mahinda Chintanya. Let their crocodile tears be shed for the poverty stricken Tamils of their own Tamil Nadu. People living in glass houses should not throw stones. Why see the speck in your brother’s eye when you have a large piece of dirt in your own eye?
Totally agree with Nicholas Dias. These Indian “Jokers” hardly ever know what they are talking about let alone have brains capable of rational thought. They supported the Terrorist Tamil Sun God and his terrorist tamil youth army in the destruction of the Sinhala Buddhist Nation of Sri Lanka. Having hoodwinked a generation of sinhala leaders; they were dumbfounded with the determination of HE President Mahinda Rajapaksa in eliminating the terrorist tamil movement.
As HE President Mahinda Rajapaksa said in the press briefing following the first ever cabinet meeting in the former Terrorist Tamil Capital City of Kilinochchi, it is the Sinhala Buddhist peasantry that continues to bear the brunt of the destruction caused by the terrorist tamils in the Northern and Eastern Provinces. The Sinhala Buddhist peasantry has now got to kneel down before the imperialst World Bank and IMF to get money to repair the damage caused by the terrorist tamil movement and its terrorist tamil diaspora supporters.
Has Manmoghan Singhu and Karunhara Nidi got any idea of the sufferings undergone by 2 generations of the Sinhala Buddhist Citizenry? And on top of that, does Bungee Moon and his sidekicks, Vijay Nambiar and Naveena Pillay have any idea of the complete anhillation of social values and infrastructure caused by the Terrorist tamil leader, the Sun God and his terrorist tamil under-age army?
These guys are living in a dreamland and hope they continue with their sweet dreams for ever and for ever and let the Sinhala Buddhist Citizens of Sri Lanka develop the Sinhala Buddhist Nation of Sri Lanka!
