The LTTE’s bombing of Colombo: The last flicker burst of terrorism - Dr. Swamy

Chennai, 22 February, (Asiantribune.com): The LTTE’s bombing of Colombo on Friday represents the last flicker burst of terrorism by the outfit before becoming extinguished. It is a last desperate act of terrorism said Dr. Subramanian Swamy, President of the Janata Party.Dr. Subramanian SwamyDr. Subramanian Swamy

While condemning the LTTE’s last ditch bid terrorist act before extinction, Dr. Swamy in a statement said "The LTTE has now been thoroughly exposed as a terrorist organization bereft of any civilized society support anywhere in the world. Their much touted backing in the Tamil Nadu has been shown to be of riff raffs who commit arson on public transport vehicles which are despicable acts of goodaism."

He further added, "In 1991 when Janata Government under the Prime Ministership of Mr. Chandrashekhar had dismissed the DMK Government, the claim of Tamil supporters for LTTE was exposed. Not a single cycle was burnt, much less a bus or jeep, following the aftermath of the dismissal of the DMK Government on January 31, 1991.

"The Tamil Nadu police which was acting as a supplicant during the DMK regime became the vanguard for protective and patriotic action under Central rule under my supervision. Hence it is the political leadership which decides the behaviour of the police and not the police themselves.

"I demand action against those lawyers who had humiliated the ACP by name Khader Moiuddin in open court in front of almost hundred advocates, two senior Judges, and roughed him up.

"We now learn from the police that another police officer was stripped of his clothes by some LTTE/Naxalite/MDMK/PMK/VCK lawyers. Police personnel also are human beings and have self-respect. If to vindicate themselves they commit excesses, we cannot justify it but certainly treat it as a mitigating circumstance.

Let this incident now serve notice to all anti-national characters in Tamil Nadu that to maintain public order the whole country will rally for it. If any Administration is not able to maintain public order that Government will not remain in office."
