Indians abroad should advise and encourage Sri Lankan Tamils to campaign within the democratic structure of Sri Lanka - Dr. Swamy
Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of the Janata Party and the former Law Minister of India has urged Indians abroad to advise and encourage Sri Lankan Tamils to ‘campaign within the democratic structure of Sri Lanka’.
This was the first time ever the support and cooperation of Indians abroad were sought and was categorically pointed out to Sri Lankan Tamils, “not run sterile and bogus genocide campaigns abroad”.
He further pointed out, ‘the UN Reports also detail about the LTTE brutality and using of child soldiers.’
Dr. Subramanian Swamy emphasized in a statement released to the press, “This requires UNHCR concern equally. The rump LTTE is active abroad if not in Sri Lanka. “
While pointing out India has continued to maintain the ban on the LTTE, he described the LTTE supporters within Tamil Nadu, “LTTE financial orphans” and alleged that they are active in criminal activities in Tamil Nadu.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy alleged when referring about “LTTE financial orphans” that “Some now are being encouraged by ISI of Pakistan to team up with ULFA, Maoists and LeT.
“ So no patriotic Indian should take notice of such one-sided campaigns”, he cautioned in the press release.
He stressed the importance of “India has to work with Sri Lanka to get constitutional safeguards for the Sri Lankan Tamils”.
He also reminded, “We in India regard both Sinhalese and Tamils as descendents of Indians. Nor can we forget the perfidy of the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.”
