Swamy asks Jaya to visit Lanka
Posted on August 13th, 2012

Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy on Saturday asked TN Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa to visit Sri Lanka to ‘help foster Sinhala-Tamil’ reconciliation as he took jibes at DMK chief M. Karunanidhi for going ‘bankrupt’ on ideas on the Sri Lankan Tamils’ issue.

“I urge Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa to visit Sri Lanka and help foster Sinhala-Tamil reconciliation instead of engaging in competitive Tamil sectarian chauvinism with Karunanidhi who is now bankrupt of ideas,” he said in a statement. Swamy, who had earlier visited Sri Lanka to attend a defence seminar besides meeting leaders including President Mahinda Rajapaksa, said a visit by Jayalalithaa will promote reconciliation.

“The animosity based on the bogus British imperialist Aryan-Dravidian divide has plagued the two communities and this needs to be rectified now,” he said.

A visit by Jayalalithaa to Sri Lanka at this juncture will promote reconciliation and foster India-Sri Lanka bonding, he added. He warned Karunanidhi against any talk of ‘Eelam’, saying it would attract action under Indian Penal Code.
