IPL must move matches out of Chennai

Tamil Nadu must be administered a shock treatment to help them come out of this insanity. It is the need of the hour. We cannot expect the impotent Congress party-led UPA government to do anything. One remedy for this illness now is the cricket board.

The Board for Control of Cricket in India has allowed politicians to hijack the game. (Actually, BCCI itself has been hijacked by politicians!) Today, J Jayalalithaa ensured that Sri Lankans cricketers would not be allowed to play in the IPL matches in Chennai. Immediately, Indian Premier League decided to drop the Sri Lankans from matches that would be held in Chennai.

This was a disgusting step by the IPL.

The political one-upmanship in Tamil Nadu is hurting India like never before.

These alleged Eelam lovers really are actually hurting the poor Tamils residing in Sri Lanka.

The hobbled government at the Centre has abdicated its responsibilities a long, long time ago. It is too spineless to do anything about a state which has abdicated its law and order responsibilities.

Tamil Nadu is going down the drain if not outright into the gutter, thanks to these Dravidian politicians. If one sees the posts on various social media sites or even in the comments section of various news sites, the pro-Sri Lankan Tamil activists are using harsh language against everyone who does not toe their line.

They are calling every north Indian Brahmins and every other Indian “Hindians”. Their campaign is reminiscent of the movement against Hindi of yesteryears.

They are oozing out hate. Just as the world’s most terrorist Prabhakaran did against civilians in Sri Lanka and India.

Give them a gun, I am sure they will go out a shoot anyone they think is an “Hindian”.

On TV channels too, they have exhibited their hate for India and Hindians.

Some of them even want to secede from India and join hands with their Tamil “brothers” in Sri Lanka to create their own Tamil homeland, the Eelam.

Most of these commentators appear to be young students. Apparently, they have been brainwashed by the politicians.

Don’t be surprised if, in a few days, you will see suicides for the cause of Eelam.

The students are easy cannon fodder for the politicians. And it is not in Tamil Nadu alone. Even in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, pro-Telangana politicians have used them for their devious purposes. Many students have committed suicide for the so-called dream of Telangana.

Such shameless politicians, whether in Tamil Nadu or in Andhra Pradesh, are just plain evil people.

Do I blame the students? No. The poor guys have been brainwashed to such an extent that they are no longer thinking human beings, but robots programmed for self-destruction.

The unfortunate part is that they might also cause destruction against others while on the way to their own self-destruction.

Tamil Nadu must be administered a shock treatment to help them come out of this insanity. It is the need of the hour.

We cannot expect the impotent Congress party-led UPA government to do anything.

One remedy for this illness now is the cricket board.

Like all other Indians — despite these Tamil protagonists claiming they are the progeny of a different “God” — people in Tamil Nadu, including the warring politicians, are cricket crazy.

All the IPL matches in Chennai must be cancelled and shifted to other venues outside this currently volatile southern state.

However, I have my doubts. BCCI chief is N Srinivasan, who hails from Chennai, is an industrialist and owner of India Cements. He will never sacrifice his business interests for the greater national cause. He is also the owner of an IPL team, Chennai Super Kings.

(An aside, an IPL team owned by DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi’s grand-nephew has two Sri Lankans, including the captain. This was disclosed by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa herself to expose the DMK’s duplicity. Read about it here)

Stalin raid: Whodunit?

What most of India is sure about is that the CBI raid early this morning and its calling off was a purely political game to unnerve the DMK. It also sends out strong signals to the UPA’s “outside supporters”, the Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party of Mayawati, to toe the line and support a tottering and patently immoral and illegal minority government.

Parkala Observer: Shrikant N ShenoyCongress party honcho Sonia Gandhi was “angry” and “upset”. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said: “We are upset.The timing of the raid is unfortunate.The government didn’t do it. We will find out who is responsible.” Finance Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram has “strongly dissaproved” it.

This is really Incredible India! Or is this Incredulous India?

But who will investigate the sudden mystery raid on the residence of DMK crown prince M K Stalin and equally sudden and even more mysterious calling it off mid-way by India’s premier investigation agency, barely a day after the DMK officially pulled out of the Congress party-led United Political Alliance at the centre?

But what most of India is sure about is that the CBI raid early this morning and its calling off was a purely political game to unnerve the DMK. It also sends out strong signals to the UPA’s “outside supporters”, the Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party of Mayawati, to toe the line and support a tottering and patently immoral and illegal minority government.

The Central Bureau of Investigation is being openly derided as the “Congress Bureau of Investigation”.

Fingers are being pointed out Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, V Narayanasamy, who is now scratching his head hard trying to figure out what went wrong. He too had this to say: government had nothing to do with the CBI raid on Stalin. But Sonia Gandhi, who holds the “remote control” of the government, questioned the minister, who holds the portfolio under which the CBI comes.

Meanwhile, another wing of the government, the Enforcement Directorate, were also holding out the threat that DMK supremo Karunanidhi’s daughter Kanimozhi, a suspect in the 2G scam case, will likely see herself cooling her heels in jail once more, this time on charges of money laundering in the 2G scam.

DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi said he did not wish to speculate on the CBI team visiting his son Stalin’s residence this morning. “I woke up only at 10:00 am. I saw the news about the raids on TV. Stalin has clarified,” Karunanidhi told reporters in Chennai.

But Stalin said the CBI raid targeting his son Udayanidhi in connection with the purchase of an imported car was part of a “political vendetta”.

Today morning, CBI teams fanned out across Tamil Nadu’s capital city Chennai to question some persons in connection with illegal import of cars. A four-member team landed at Stalin’s residence at 6.30 am and questioned Udayanidhi for about one-and-a-half hours when the DMK leader had gone for his morning walk.

Media reports reported that Udayanidhi told the CBI sleuths that the car in question was at the workshop. The CBI said Udayanidhi had purchased the car from a luxury car smuggler Alex Joseph a couple of years back.

The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), which was pursuing the case after Alex’s arrest in November 2011, handed over the case to the CBI. Incidentally, the DRI falls under Chidambaram’s ministry.

Udayanidhi is a producer of Tamil films under the banner of  Red Giant Movies. Recently, he has also taken to acting.

Writes Venky Vembu in Firstpost: “Of good suggestions for establishing the credibility of the CBI, there are aplenty. But when the Congress, which has been in power the longest, has a vested interest in using the agency as its handmaiden, and when  professional investigators render themselves available for political rewards in return for favours rendered, the prospects of breaking this virtuous cycle are pretty dim.” (read here)

The Samawadi Party, meanwhile, tried to put out a brave face, calling the raid “a political revenge”.

“This is a case of politics of revenge. SP will never accept this. If Congress thinks this will scare us, it is not possible,” SP leader Naresh Aggarwal said.

But DMK supremo Karunanidhi, who till yesterday was roaring over the Sri Lankan Tamils’ issue, was mewing like a cat today: An apparently shaken DMK leader told reporters: “If central ministers say they were not aware of the raids, then we will have to believe them. It is not proper for me to speculate.”

But the whole of India is already speculating. And fingers are being pointed out only at the Congress party.
