    • Janata Party President Dr.Subramanian Swamy said UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi should take a stand on the request of Nalini, a life convict in the Rajiv Gandhi Assassination case, for premature release from prison. “She (Gandhi) should realise that Nalini has committed a huge crime.”

      “If Sonia Gandhi fails to take a stand on this issue, it would mean that she has something to hide,” added Dr. Swamy, who has moved the Madras High Court opposing the setting up of the Vellore Prison Advisory Board to consider Nalini’s plea.

    • Referring to the “Mumbai for Marathis” stand of Shiv Sena and MNS, he described it as ‘ridiculous’ and said even Maharashtrians would not support this kind of ‘fanatic views’. “I had been an MP from Mumbai for two terms. Maharastrians voted for me... this shows they will not support any kind of fanaticism,” he said.
