Wigneswaran becomes chosen mouthpiece of imperialist orchestration

[TamilNet, Saturday, 21 September 2013, 05:57 GMT]
Following an interview to The Hindu, condemning Tamil Nadu voicing for the independence of Eezham Tamils, the NPC Chief Minister candidate C.V. Wigneswaran in an interview to The Times of India on Friday denounced the call for boycotting CHOGM meet in Colombo as well. The boycott call comes largely from the international human rights circles outside of the Establishments. More than representing the true aspirations of Eezham Tamils, and placing them in the right perspective to the international community of peoples, the focus of Wigneswaran is primarily on facilitating the agenda of the international community of Establishments that attempts to confirm its ‘victory’ in upholding the Colombo-centric State and at the same time absolve the genocidal crimes of all concerned, commented Tamil activists for alternative politics.

“I am not for this business of boycotting,” Wigneswaran was cited by The Times of India.

But he is in the business of advocating the world to boycott active struggles against erring Establishments everywhere. It is sad that such a polity comes from a candidate, seeking mandate from a nation that is put to genocidal onslaught by leading Establishments of the world, the Tamil activists commented.

"We must have the courage of conviction to tell the Sri Lankan government that it has done this and this and what does it got to say... It is better you say it at the CHOGM rather than keep away," Wigneswaran was further cited by the TOI.

Wigneswaran should first have the courage to tell this to New Delhi and London that will be sitting in the CHOGM, the activists said, adding that it will be a folly to facilitate the culprits to have their way with the CHOGM meet and expect them to take a righteous stand.

Like the Chennai-based The Hindu, the Mumbai-based Times of India orientated the interview to particularly address at Tamil Nadu.

The CHOGM boycott call is rather global, spearheaded by world human rights groups worried about wrong precedents and paradigms set by the Establishments, than originating from Tamil Nadu. But TOI’s concern was Tamil Nadu.

While leaders of political parties in Tamil Nadu have been strident in their demand that India boycott the CHOGM in Colombo in November, Wigneswaran has called for the country’s participation, TOI projected.

“Lanka Tamil party’s CM nominee wants India to take part in Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting,” the TOI headlines said.

The TOI interview once again reiterated Wigneswaran’s attack on Tamil Nadu leaders and cited him saying that “India owed it to the ‘Lankan Tamil community’ to help revive ‘democratic’ institutions.”

What divisive purposes Wigneswaran serves today should be clear to global Tamils, the activists in the island said, adding that the former justice has become the chosen mouthpiece for the orchestration of the Establishments.

The mainstream media gang-up in India, similar to their gang-up during the genocidal war, and the active role being played in recent times by the Mumbai-based Times of India of corporate interests in propping up the Colombo-centric Sinhala State in the island, have to be carefully understood in Tamil Nadu, the activists said.

Indian intelligence-run outfits in recent times have been coming out with ‘sane’ articles denouncing the US role in West Asia and shedding tears for the people in Syria and Egypt. Had the Indian writers paid at least a small fraction of this care on what took place in their backyard and the ‘strategic complicity’ of New Delhi in it along with the USA, the world paradigms would have been different, the Tamil activists for alternative politics commented.

But New Delhi proved and proves worse than the USA and all other ‘strategic partners’ in handling the course in the island to the annihilation of the nation of Eezham Tamils in the war and in the aftermath, the activists said.

After steering the course of the war to end in genocide, the signals coming from New Delhi and Washington were that they wanted ‘leaders’ to come from Tamils to denounce their own aspirations, and to diffuse, hijack or sit on any democratic struggle of Eezham Tamils either, even if any non-descript powers under confirmed subjugation have to be ‘devolved’.

This means, Eezham Tamils cannot evolve their own genuine leadership and even the leadership of ‘Stateless’ Tamils all over the world outside will be condemned, and silenced, the activists for alternative politics said.

After more or less illegitimating the leadership in Tamil Nadu, in providing at least a small international space for the genocide-facing nation of Eezham Tamils to claim for its independence, the former Justice Wigneswaran planted from the blues to simulate the leadership of Eezham Tamils now claims 80–90 per cent support of Tamils in the island for his polity, the Tamil activists commented on the TOI interview.

According to Wignesaran cited by the TOI, Tamils lost Eastern Province due to their leaders keeping away from the election. He was deliberately overlooking the demographic genocide that had taken place and is taking place with the blessings of New Delhi and other international engineers of Sri Lankan State, who now say that it is the ground reality. They work for the same even in the North with the LLRC agenda. The TNA did contest the East. Does Wigneswaran mean to draw a line between TNA before him and after him, asked the Tamil activists.

Wigneswaran in the TOI interview equating Pirapaharan with the Sri Lankan government in brutality is no justice at all, the activists said.

The tone and language of the election speeches by some TNA leaders, especially the speech by another ‘discovered’ leader Mr. Sumanthiran, re-enact the Federal Party scenario prior to the militant struggle, in which politicians were telling something to Tamils and dealing something else with Colombo, the activists said, citing a speech made at Ki’linochchi this week.

Wigneswaran in his TOI interview was concerned about SL military engineering the election by preventing some people and allowing others in the voting for the candidates.

Of all the candidates, the SL military particularly targeting Ms. Ananthi, the most popular candidate based on the land of Eezham Tamils, has not gone unnoticed by political observers.
