Swamy: cancel visas of LTTE propagandists

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: The Union government should cancel the visas of Sri Lankan citizens who are campaigning against their government on Indian soil, Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy said here on Monday.

“Most of them are pro-LTTE propagandists,” he said. Sri Lankan citizens had no right to campaign against that country using Indian soil.

“If Indians campaign against the Indian government among foreigners abroad, we Indians will not tolerate it and, in fact, suspect foreign governments of planning to destabilise our country. Hence we cannot practise double standards in such delicate matters,” he said.

Sri Lanka was a democracy and a member of SAARC, and Sri Lankan citizens could speak out in Sri Lanka itself, he added.
