Decan chronicle warns India not to trust Prabhakaran with bloody hands who breaks agreements at his convenience

Reminding that the LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran has blood on his hand the powerful South Indian newspaper Decan Chronicle in an leader said India will be very shortsighted once again if it dedicated the mistake of commerce with Prabhakaran who would enter into agreements and break them at his expediency.
The leader by Nitish Sengupta firmly said,"Whatever be the force that Tamil politicians are opposite, no trust should be placed on Prabhakaran or the LTTE, one of the most notorious killing squads in the world which has no sense of right and wrong about toward the inside into an accord and then repudiating it at their expediency. No negotiations should be started with the LTTE unless they replace Prabhakaran with a reasonable leader".
The leader reminded New Delhi the there situation had a similar with the circumstances of 1987 when India intervened under the pressure of karunanidhi and even at that time the Sri Lankan safety forces were close to overrunning Jaffna peninsula, like the LTTE is on the verge of beat at Kilinochchi.
Though the accord between President Junius Jayewardene and Rajiv Gandhi gave many achievements to the alternative like Tamil a status of parity with the Sinhala language in the state Prabhakaran breached the agreement, to which he had agreed previous, refused to surrender arms under it, and attacked the Indian Peace Keeping Forces, "in a brazenly unappreciative manner," the leader charged.
The following is the full text of the editorial:
"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's choice to send external relationships Minister Pranab Mukherjee to Sri Lanka to press for a truce between forces and the LTTE has an unmistakable parallel with the state of affairs that prevailed in 1987.
"At that time too the Sri Lankan Army was close to leak the Jaffna peninsula, which compulsory the LTTE to move toward M. Karunanidhi and the DMK to ask for the Government of India to interfere. This resulted in actual intervention by India , leading to the Thimpu Accord and the Jayawardhane-Rajiv Gandhi Agreement, endorsed by LTTE supremo Prabhakaran.
"As a result of the accord, Tamil was given the same status as the Sinhala verbal communication, discrimination against Tamils in job opportunities was withdrawn, and the need for a provincial government headed by a Tamilian for the Tamil mother country in the Northeast of Sri Lanka was also accepted. Thus, addressing many grievances of the Sri Lankan Tamils.
"As part of the accord, the LTTE agreed to give in arms. And to oversee this, an Indian Peace-Keeping Force went to Sri Lanka. unluckily, Prabhakaran violated the accord and avoided yielding arms. And when he realised that India would not, under any circumstances, be active in ensuring recognition of an self-governing Tamil Elam in Sri Lanka, he started doing all to make it hard for the IPKF to operate, thereby repaying his debt to India in a shamelessly ungrateful manner.
"It was unlucky that the IPKF got involved, next to its wishes, in armed clashes with the LTTE. though many Tamil leaders in Sri Lanka supported the accord and were willing to give the Sri Lanka government time to put into practice provisions of the agreement, the LTTE repudiated it in a clear break of faith. Not only did they not be uncertain to eliminate Tamil best of Sri Lanka, but finally committed the most guilty act - the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, in a straight line under Prabhakaran's order. This was, indeed, the height of Prabhakaran's misdeeds.
"Thereafter, he openly related with Sri Lanka Prime Minister Premdasa in difficult the removal of the IPKF and, after removal of the IPKF, had Premdasa assassinated.
"This part of the past needs to be retold as once again Prabhakaran is seeking removal of the ban on the LTTE in India. Sri Lanka's Army has once again shown extraordinary success in its operation next to the LTTE. It has captured nearly all the approaches to the Jaffna peninsula and is close to the doors of Prabhakaran's den. And India is facing general elections soon. It is in this state of affairs that Prabhakaran has in progress his old game of putting force on DMK in Tamil Nadu, to help influence the Sri Lankan Army to call off their unpleasant and to ease the pressure on Jaffna.
"India will be very short-sighted once again if it commits the error of dealing with Prabhakaran. We must not forget how Prabhakaran eliminated all his "rival" Tamil politicians in Sri Lanka. what be the pressure that Tamil politicians are facing, no trust should be located on Prabhakaran or the LTTE, one of the most infamous killing squads in the world which has no scruples about toward the inside into an accord and then repudiating it at their convenience. No talks should be started with the LTTE unless they replace Prabhakaran with a moderate leader.
"We should also keep in mind that all Tamilians in Sri Lanka are not followers of the LTTE. Many of them want to live gladly with their Sinhala friends. unluckily, Sri Lanka has an element of jingoism which rises to the outside whenever they are close to success. A typical case in point was the unlucky statement lately made by the Army chief that Sri Lanka income a Sinhala nation, ignoring that the Tamils have been livelihood in Sri Lanka for several generations and that when westerners came to Sri Lanka they took over from the island's Tamilian king. "Thus both, the Sinhalese and the Tamilians, need to show that they are willing and ready to live and let live. Discrimination next to Tamil inhabitants should stop and the
Tamil-dominated Northeast should be given complete provincial autonomy. In return, Tamil leaders should express their faith in one indivisible Sri Lanka. India can be the biggest guarantee of such a unified, multi-racial Sri Lanka.
"India can't forget LTTE has blood on its hands." (EOM).
