சாந்தன்,முருகன்,பேரறிவாளனைக் காப்பாற்ற கருணாநிதி, ஜெயலலிதாவால் முடியாதா?
Chief Minister Jayalalithaa getting a unanimous resolution passed in the state assembly asking the union government to grant clemency to the three LTTE assassins of Rajiv Gandhi. Immediately after Jayalalithaa’s announcement in the House that she was helpless in getting the death sentence of Santhan, Perarivalan and Murugan commuted to life imprisonment, the DMK president drove down to his party headquarters and released a statement to the media asking the state and central governments to quash the death sentence of the trio.
But by that time Jayalalithaa had shown to the world that Karunanidhi is a master in doublespeak.
Though the clemency petitions of Santhan, Murugan and Perarivalaan had come to him in 2000 when he was the chief minister, Karunanidhi chose to look the other way.
“It is strange that he is pleading to the state and central governments for mercy on the three Tamil youths. When he was calling the shots in UPA 1 he did nothing to get the presidential pardon for Murugan, Santhan and Perarivalan. He was more worried about getting plum cabinet postings for his children and grand nephews,” said P Nedumaran, leader of Tamil Nationalist Movement.
He said a word from the DMK president would have made a lot of difference. Nedumaran pointed out that the first thing done by Pratibha Patilafter getting elected as President was to make a visit to Chennai to thank the people of Tamil Nadu.
“But Karunanidhi is more concerned about saving Raja and Kanimozhi. He did nothing to help these three persons,” he said.
Tamil Aruvi Manian also criticized both Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha that they are playing drama with the remission for the three LTTE activists.
Junior Vikatan in its issue dated 6-11-2011 has published Tamil Aruvi Manians criticisms and we are telling the same in Tamil thro “You Tube”.
