Swamy moots ‘Hindu umbrella’ in Tamil Nadu

via Newindpress published on January 9, 2006

TIRUCHY: The Janata Party is holding talks with the BJP, VHP and RSS to form a third front in Tamil Nadu, as there is an urgent need to protect the Hindu religion and its culture in the State from terrorist outfits and other dangers, said Janata Party president Dr Subramanian Swamy.

Speaking to reporters here on Sunday, he said a pro-Hindu third front had become essential, as there was a threat of an international conspiracy in terms of terrorism, narcotics, unbridled globalisation, and targeting India’s holy personages.

‘‘We will soon hold talks with BJP national president Rajnath Singh about the idea in New Delhi and fight it out,’’ he said and claimed that the VHP, RSS and a couple of seers had already welcomed his move.

‘‘Even if we win some 15 seats in TN, we will function as a responsible Opposition and voice the people’s grievances,’’ he said, adding that terrorist outfits were coming together globally and it would not be fair to remain a spectator.

Coming down heavily on the UPA Government, Swamy charged, ‘‘The Congress is very soft on handling the terrorists. There is no counter terrorism policy available at the Centre.’’

Asked about the Volcker report controversy, which resulted in senior Congress leader Natwar Singh losing his External Affairs Ministership, he said, Singh should instead become a ‘whistle-blower’ in the national interest.

Taking money from a dictator like Saddam Hussain by accepting oil vouchers was a heinous anti-national act and it should be exposed.

Welcoming the exposure of the telephone tapping issue of Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh as a bold measure, he demanded explanation from the Centre for such an act.
