Taking exception to the transportation of the nine Lankan Air Force personnel from Tambaram air-base to Bangalore for continuing their training there, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Friday urged the Centre to deport these personnel back to Sri Lanka.
“The people of Tamil Nadu would not accept providing training to the Lankan Air Force personnel at Bangalore instead of Tambaram. I reiterate my demand for deporting the Sri Lankan personnel to their country immediately and that they should not be given technical training in any other part of India,” the Chief Minister said in a statement.
By transporting the Lankan Air Force personnel to Bangalore, suspicion has arisen in the minds of the people of Tamil Nadu whether the UPA government, in which the DMK is a constituent partner, is acting in favour of those who act against the Tamil race, she said.
The Chief Minister further said the people of Tamil Nadu wish that those who had indulged in war crimes in Sri Lanka should be declared as war criminals by the United Nations and action should be taken against them accordingly.
Recalling her statement against providing training to Lankan Air Force personnel on July 5, Jayalalithaa said all opposition parties in the State had expressed similar views and the people of the State had, in one voice, opposed the decision of the Centre. She said DMK president M Karunanidhi was “so-ft-pedalling” on the issue. Jayalalithaa recalled that when asked about the training of Lankan personnel, the he had said, “If it is true, it is condemnable and that it would be appropriate for the Centre to send them back.” (Express News Service)

These type of leaders are only suit for the gallery. They do not have any academic qualifications or effective advisers to take most appropriate decisions for the present and for the future. Due to their bad remarks and decisions the people of the both the countries are suffering a lot.

Tiresome to see us being discussed in India as if we were one of their states. Time to distance ourselves from India.

The government must immediately come out of hibernation and contain the situation. What a pathetic state of affairs!
