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.
