1. The Resolution of the DMK moved by its President Mr. M. Karunanidhi demanding that all Sri Lankan Tamils residing in India should be wholesale given Indian citizenship, is a desperate bid to appease the LTTE rump that is sore with him for his inability to fight for their cause effectively while fooling them with his breakfast-to-lunch fast unto death. Hence now he is seeking to provide them a sanctuary in India legitimised by a gratis Indian citizenship. The LTTE rump today is on the run worldwide with their sacks of cash on their back earned by poisoning the youth with their heroin trade. At the urging of the now financially orphaned Dravida Kazagham chief K. Veeramani, the Chief Minister has capitulated by demanding all this rump on the run be accomodated on Indian soil, knowing fully well that under the Indian Constitution this cannot be done. I shall certainly challenge it in the courts if the Union Government yields to this illegal demand.
If the Chief Minister wants to help the Sri Lanka Tamil cause, he should instead demand from the Centre to honour the memory of Arulmuga Navalar who by his powerful Tamil prose fought in the nineteenth century to protect the identity of Tamils, thereby kept it alive and safeguarded.
2. I strongly condemn the Italian government for arbitrarily and wilfully disrupting the Durga pooja in Rome organised by the resident Bengalis. The Indian Ambassador was scheduled to appear at the pooja, and the organisers had taken prior permission as in previous years. Yet the Rome police entered the pandal and disrupted the arrangements. Let the Italian government be warned that that their is a limit to the patience even for Hindus. Hindus in India know how reciprocate such vandalism if the Union Government under the influence of an imposter Indian citizen of Italian descent fails to protect the sacredness of Hindu festivals. I demand an immediate summoning of the Italian Ambassdor and a strong protest be lodged.
