Subramanian Swamy wants central forces deployed in Tamil Nadu

April 10th, 2009 - 11:01 pm ICT by IANS  

Chennai, April 10 (IANS) Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy Friday warned of serious trouble from pro-LTTE elements in Tamil Nadu and demanded that central paramilitary forces be deployed to take preventive measures.
“The central government must take pre-emptive action by posting Central Reserve Police Force and Border Security Force personnel in Tamil Nadu and carry out pre-emptive arrests of fissiparous elements immediately,” Swamy said in a statement.

The Janata Party president was reacting to Vaiko’s warning of a “bloodbath in Tamil Nadu” if any harm came to Veluppillai Prabhakaran, the leader of the banned Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, during the ongoing Sri Lankan military action against the rebels.

Swamy demanded that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi prepare a contingency plan to tackle a hypothetical “post-Prabhakaran situation”.

Meanwhile, lawyer R. Shiva Sankaran, who was arrested earlier in the day for pelting the Janata Party president with eggs in the Madras High Court in February over his alleged pro-Colombo stance, was let off on bail.
