Voters in TN have Rejected the LTTE supporters

Hats Off to Tamil Nadu voters!!! What a fantastic PUNCH they have delivered against the likes of RowdyDas, Vaigo, Commies & Jaya? WOW!!! Three Cheers to TN Voters.

Before the polls, I was really beginning to get worried, like many other nationalist minds, that if LTTE coolies' shrill propaganda in TN will actually influence the voters' minds and how will it affect the new government to be formed at the centre.

But, to my great relief, the VOTERS OF TAMIL NADU HAVE REJECTED THE LTTE SUPPORTING POLITICAL PARTIES OUTRIGHT. The entire opposition alliance of AIADMK, PMK, MDMK, CPI & CPM tried to project the Sri Lankan Govt.'s war against LTTE as a genocide against SL Tamils & wanted the Govt. of India to do unreasonable things to stop the war. But, neither the Sonia Cong. nor DMK, to their credit, budged from their position and the Govt. of India did the right thing by not putting any pressure or breaks on Sri Lankan Govt. and its army's ability to destroy the Tamil terrorists & crush any visible vestiges of that movement.

The people of Tamil Nadu have collectively shown their foresight & vision and proved to the world that they are always for India as a united nation & India should not unnecessarily interfere in other countries' internal matters, particularly if it involvs crushing terrorists & terrorism. They have proved to the world that they are more responsible than the entire opoosition parties in Tamil Nadu.

தமிழ் நாட்டை பொறுத்தவரை தீவிரவாத கூலி கும்பலை மக்கள் செருப்படி கொடுத்து வீட்டுக்கு அனுப்பியதில் எனக்கு பரம திருப்தி. கூலி படைகள் சத்தம் போட்டு கொண்டுதான் இருக்கும். வாங்கிய காசுக்கு மாரடிக்கிறார்கள். ஆனால், இலங்கை பிரச்னையை பொறுத்தவரை தமிழ் மக்கள் மிகவும் மிகவும் தெளிவாகவே இருக்கிறார்கள். 1991 இல் என்ன மாதிரி வாக்களித்தார்களோ அதே போன்ற தெளிவு இப்போதும். வெரி குட்.

Just as the election results have been announced & the implications have started to sink in came the GOOD NEWS that LTTE's chief Barbarian Prabakaran has been killed by the Sri Lankan army. That news was the ICING ON THE CAKE. It was like a double treat for any Indian. Well Done, Mr. Mahinda Rajapaksa. You have achieved what none of your predecessors could do by your leadership, sheer determination & single-minded focus to crush terrorism. Indian leaders will do well to learn a lesson or two from you.

Now that the LTTE touts like PMK & MDMK have been convincingly defeated & shown their true places in TN's political standing, other major parties like DMK, AIADMK, Sonia Congress & BJP should, in future, deal with them accordingly & not give them too much importance, which they never deserved.

AIADMK's Jayalalitha deserves this defeat - if not for anything else, just for her expediency in shifting from her long standing position of "no support to terrorism of any kind" to that of "supporting separate country for SL Tamils" and thus, indirectly supporting LTTE's cause. The good impression she has painstakingly gained from all right-thinking and nationalist-minded citizens over the years has been irresponsibly, may be irrevocably too, thrown to the winds by her expeditious & short-sighted change of stand just for that mirage called 'political gains at the hustings'.

On the contrary, we should congratulate Karunanidhi for sticking to the Govt. of India's stand of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs. He deserves special praise for this because he took this "very un-Karunanidhi-like" stance against all odds of being labelled as an anti-Tamil. Whatever may be the real or perceived reason based on which he might have taken that stand, he deserves praise nevertheless. Thank You Mr. Karunanidhi & I hope, at least from now, you realise that even if you have to take a nationalist stance vis-a-vis a parochial issue against strong opposition in your state, people will support you.

Sonia & her Congress party deserve the prasie for being firm in their stance, for not budging to the enormous pressure brought about by LTTE's propaganda machine and for allowing the SL Govt. to take the war to its logical end. Now that the LTTE & their terrorists have been fully destroyed, the Govt. of India will do well to put enough bilateral & international diplomatic pressure to make SL Govt. to speedily work on rehabilitation and devolution matters to the Tamils there. Only by taking quick rehabilitation measures would the wounds of war-ravaged people can be tried to be healed.

Last but not the least, it is amusing to see the reactions of the so many LTTE sponsored websites & Tamil bloggers. All of them are now crying hoarse & their wail has become much more shriller now that the world has been officially told by Sri Lankan Govt. that Prabakaran is killed in the war. They are all trying to pacify themselves & trying to keep their flock together by concocting weird theories of how he is still alive, how he will dramatically appear after some time, etc. All this are understandable since they are (i) shocked by the turn of events & (ii) realise that THEIR SOURCE OF FUNDS WILL TOTALLY DRY-UP NOW THAT THE LTTE IS EXTINCT. That is what is pinching them. It is like, after some fierce street fight gets over & the crowd has disbursed, still some street dogs will roam about barking for some bread-crumbs. Only after a lot of barking with no avail will they realise that nobody is bothered about them & then only they will slowly move to some trash-bin nearby & settle down there. So, let us not disturb them & let them take their own sweet time to find a trash-bin.

Regarding whether Prabakaran is alive or dead, the point to note is that SL Govt. and Army will not go to such an extent of openly declaring the news to the world, showing some videos & photos of the body (howsoever disputable it may be) & announcing the mass burial in an undisclosed and an unmarked area, without making sure that EVEN IF HE IS ALIVE, HE WON'T BE ABLE TO RE-SURFACE ON THE SAME IDENTITY. Otherwise, their nation's legal credibility will go to dogs. Other nations, like for eg. India, have cases against the LTTE terrorists & Prabakaran. Those cases can be closed only based on authenticated death certificate from the SL Govt. Therefore, it is reasonable to expect that the Sri Lankan Govt. would have taken adequate legal, scientific & logistical corroborations before announcing the news.
