Only in Incredible India, folks. Only in India.
An indefinite fast by a politician for a ceasefire in Sri Lanka lasts but six hours and fails to achieve the ceasefire demanded.
What else can you expect when the politician in question is the Loose Paiya (crackpot) a.k.a. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi, who claims the dreaded LTTE terrorist Velupillai Prabhakaran is his good friend.
Loose Paiya’s ‘indefinite fast’ drama of Monday demanding ceasefire in Sri Lanka lasted just six hours.
And what did the buffoon achieve? No ceasefire.
Here’s what the Sri Lanka government had to say:
There is no ceasefire. The government will go ahead with their operation to get the civilians out of the ‘No Fire Zone’ who are being held hostage by the LTTE,” Lakshman Hullagulle, Director-General of the Media Center for National Security said.
If the Loose Paiya leader of a state of 66 million engages in such buffoonery, ask yourself if there’s any hope at all for this state.
The Sri Lankan government announcement against use of heavey calibre guns is most likely a face-saving opportunity provided to Loose Paiya at the behest of the Indian government or worse, the whole affair was a pre-arranged drama to tilt the May 13 polls in Tamil Nadu in the DMK-Congress alliance’s favor.
India’s Election Commission must investigate this ‘indefinite fast’ drama to see if it involved the use of government resources to benefit the DMK-Congress alliance. We suspect India’s Ministry of External Affairs and intelligence agencies were involved in this ‘indefinite fast’ drama since we also saw the fast being concluded after the announcement by the Sri Lanka government that heavy caliber guns, combat aircraft and aerial weapons which could cause civilian causalities would not be used.
Only an independent and thorough probe can bring out the truth. The 66.39 million citizens of Tamil Nadu deserve to know why their leader is behaving like a Loose Paiya.
Something is rotten in the state of Tamil Nadu, the bard would say were he to write Hamlet today.
Mera Bharat Mahaan.
The old fox has done it again! This guy beats even Shakespeare in scripting plays man!! And to think that some tamilians still believe in his bullshit, I am afraid nobody can save Tamilnadu! If he continues at this rate, Tamilnadu will become a state of Terrorist sympathizers and nobrainers once and for all. wish that his party gets ousted in all the 40 constituencies(Including Pondicherry).
God ,if you ever exist, please remove this buffoon and his family from the face of the earth. We have enough gorillas and chimpanzees to run the show already, we don’t need this guy!
You write: wish that his party gets ousted in all the 40 constituencies(Including Pondicherry)
From your lips to God’s ears.
Obviously, “the assurances of the Tamil Nadu government should have been guarantee enough.” Obviously.
Damn those Australians for being “so far away from reality” and for having “ignorance as well as prejudice.”
Why is it that people in India and Pakistan are so desperately quick to play the race card? They are giving Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton a run for their money.
We agree with the Australians here.
What with the war against the LTTE Tamil Terrorists just across the sea from Tamil Nadu in Sri Lanka and the elections on May 13, the Aussies did a smart thing in pulling out of the Davis Cup.
considering that LTTE has declared a unilateral ceasefire and its only the SL army which is now after Prabhakaran and the remaining cadres …..this act of fastng …after everything is over is nonsense …..then to claim that it was his act which lead to so called ceasefire is again misleading ……
Other parties and news channels will inform people that there has been no ceasefire …..whatever little respect Karunanidhi had is also gone ….
We agree. The old man looks like a clown.
We hope the people of Tamil Nadu realize this nonsense on May 13 in the voting booths.
