Villupuram blast: Swamy blames pro-LTTE groups

  • tags: no_tag

    • CHENNAI: The Janata Party has claimed that the recent attack on the railway track near Villupuram was a coordinated effort of pro-LTTE elements, the Maoists and the Dravida Kazhagam and that these groups were emboldened by the permissive atmosphere created by the DMK government.


      Subramanian Swamy, president of the party, in a statement at the party’s Central Parliamentary Board on Monday, said, “The time has come for the Centre to consider imposing President’s rule in the State, ban all pro-LTTE organisations and detain LTTE stooges like Vaiko, Veeramani and Nedumaran.”
    • Swamy lashed out at the Congress, saying it was trying to pin the blame on former Madhya Pradesh CM Arjun Singh for letting the then Union Carbide Chairman Warren Anderson go. “Arjun Singh let Anderson go only because Arun Nehru had asked him to do so. That’s probably why Arun Nehru has jumped in suddenly to blame Arjun Singh, before anybody points fingers at him”, he said


      Swamy also demanded that Congress president Sonia Gandhi explain her position on the Bhopal Tragedy. Swamy alleged that she had a role behind the scenes in catalysing political issues at that time. Explaining this, Swamy said Sonia had impressed upon Rajiv Gandhi to allow Ottavio Quattrocchi to manage India’s legal affairs in Bano vs Union Carbide in a New York District Court.
