The DMK cannot be allowed to play petty politics and interfere in Sri Lanka's internal affairs, which goes against our foreign policy
The ultimatum of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) to the Manmohan Singh government that all the 39 Tamil Nadu members of Parliament (MPs) will resign if it fails to force the Sri Lankan government to declare a ceasefire in the war next to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is nothing but political blackmail. The DMK has always flirted with the reason of the Sri Lankan Tamils, which is fired by a dangerous kind of populism.
Though the all-party decree on Tuesday is understood in a language which spoken anxiety over the civilian inhabitants in northern Lanka, it is a way of helping not directly the banned terrorist organisation, the LTTE, which had a give in the murder of previous prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. In reality, the support of DMK and others for the reason of Tamils across the Palk Strait has always meant support for Lankan Tamil terrorist organisations.
It might perfect realpolitik on the part of Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi to flex his political power when the general elections are just six months away. He may even be looking for an reason fraction ways with the UPA. But this is cynical and immoral.
The DMK has to believe the simple, if inedible, fact that there is no room for playing pan-Tamil politics across nationwide borders. Unfortunately, various Central governments have succumbed to arm-twisting by Dravidian parties on this subject on the false belief that there is something common between the Tamils in India and in Sri Lanka.
Forty years ago, the problem of the Indian Tamils in Sri Lanka was solved through the Shastri-Bandaranaike pact through which half the agricultural estate workers were repatriated to India and the relax determined Lankan citizenship. It is an altogether dissimilar container with the Jaffna Tamils in the northern part of the island which the LTTE claims to stand for. They had migrated to the island some 1000 years ago and they fit in to Sri Lanka.
India does not enter the picture. More importantly, India cannot hold up a secessionist group and terrorist organisation like the LTTE.
The Lankan government has sure that it would defend the lives of the Tamil civilians. India will have to accept the assurance in good faith. The DMK cannot be allowed to play its petty administration and get in the way in the internal relationships of a neighbouring country, which goes against the granule of Indian foreign policy. The UPA must send this loud message to the DMK.
