Advani's softness on 'LTTE terrorism' irks Swamy

Reminding the BJP of its tough anti-terror stance, Janata Party supremo Subramanian Swamy questioned Advani's call for negotiations with the 'terrorist LTTE'.

The former Union minister and chief of Janata Party (JP) said that Advani's call for a negotiated settlement with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) was dangerous and against the policies of BJP.

Swami, who is a hardline Hindutva leader and is believed to be supportive of BJP's ideology, said that there can't be any talks with Tamil Tigers and India must support the government of Sri Lanka in eliminating the LTTE.

The Janata Party president said that Advani's statement at the MDMK-organised fast was not in line with BJP's zero tolerance policy on terrorism. Swamy has been openly speaking against LTTE for several years and has been given Z security cover due to threat to his life.

Talking to journalists on Sunday, he criticised Advani and said that sympathy to Tamils in Sri Lanka aside, the Bharatiya Janata Party leader must consider his stand on negotiations with LTTE and revise it.
