New Delhi, Jan 1 (UNI) Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to go ahead with his tour of Sri Lanka disregarding the advice of 'some pro-LTTE' MPs of Sri Lanka.
Taking note of the advice of these MPs not to share the dias with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa at a public function, Dr Swamy accused these Sri Lankan MPs of representing outlawed LTTE leader V Prabhakaran who was hiding from the law. "They had become MPs with the help of 'rigging' and didn't represent Tamils of Sri Lanka.
Reminding the statement of Union Ports and Shipping Minister T R Baalu of DMK, Dr Swamy said he had promised to address 'genuine concerns' in consistent with the cordial and friendly relations between the countries through mutual discussions. "If DMK's Baalu can be civilised in democratic India, then how could the representatives of the internationally banned terrorist organisation ask Prime Minister not to come (to Sri Lanka)", Dr Swamy said in a statement.
