Devolve powers: Swamy

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy has said the defeat and decimation of the LTTE by the Sri Lankan armed forces is a cause for rejoicing by the democratic and patriotic people of India.

The LTTE had not only killed Rajiv Gandhi but was also training naxalites and cadres of the ULFA and smuggling arms and narcotics to India, Dr. Swamy charged.

He urged Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take steps to devolve powers to the Tamil areas in North and East Sri Lanka to enable residents to pursue their local, economic, and cultural aspirations.
