Boston, 26 July, (Asiantribune.com):
Speaking to Asian Tribune, Dr. Subramanian Swamy said ignore the utterances of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa. He also alleged that India’s Home Minister P. Chidambaram received a cut of Rs. 5000 crores in the 2G Spectrum Scam.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy

He said that Jayalalithaa was just indulging in her usual jingoism. Therefore, Sri Lanka should not take her seriously. He further pointed out that her utterances do not have any impact, and her comments will not make any difference to the centre.

Dr, Subramanian Swamy, the Janatha Party President was earlier the Minister of Commerce & Industry and also the Minister of Law & Justice in the Union Government of India. He was a Member of Rajya Sabah for the first time from 1974 to 1976 and later from 1988 to 1994 and also Member of Lok Sabah from 1977 to 1979, 1980 to 1984 and also from 1998 to 1999.

When asked about the Darusman report he said, “I don’t think very much of it, because they have found and have held both the Sri Lankan Army as well as the LTTE guilty of crimes.” He said that this report was lobbied for and got it done. “So this is just a report and nothing is going to come out of it.”

In the fight against terrorism, “we in India know that there is Manipur, Nagaland as well as Kashmir and what we have done there might have affected the civilian population, we are sorry about it, but nothing more we can do and this can’t be helped,” he quipped.

During the World War II, Dr. Subramanian Swamy recalled that the British bombed the entire city of Dresden in Germany and civilians died in that city and Americans dropped the atomic bomb in Japan and the entire Hiroshima and Nagasaki was devastated. It was done to bring the war to an end. “Therefore I don’t think too much of these reports and anything about accountability.”

Earlier in 1964, Dr. Subramanian Swamy joined the faculty of economics at Harvard University and from then on he has till date taught at the Department of Economics. Though he now does not teach full time at Harvard; however, he has been regularly teaching for a long time and also currently teaches economics courses in summer session at Harvard in the position of a full rank Professor.

When asked about Rahul Gandhi, Dr.Swamy said he is a unfit to be in any position of authority. ´He went on to allege that Rahul has been flunking in all his exams – in fact failed all exams in colleges and he has been actually detoxified many times for drugs and he has been friendly with so many women of different nationalities and said, “I don’t think he is a stable person.”

Regarding Sri Lanka, Dr Swamy was concerned only whether President Rajapaksa will bring about changes in the Constitution of Sri Lanka, so that there are some constitutional guarantees for devolution of power. That will be the key question in which his future would be decided in the history, he emphasized.

Given below the excerpts of the interview with Dr. Subramanian Swamy:

India Sri Lanka and China

Asian Tribune: I want to have your views on some very important subjects regarding Sri Lanka and India and the bilateral relationship between the two countries. Presently, there is a line of thinking that the bilateral relationship between India and Sri Lanka, since of late has strained after China has shown interest in the affairs of Sri Lanka. China for the last five years and more has come forward to support Sri Lanka economically and politically in all the international forums. I wish to have your comments on this?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I think that India has to be very careful when its deals with other sovereign nations, because they may want to have relationship with many other countries too. I think that there is no difficulty for India to have an understanding with China on what is to be done in Sri Lanka. I myself have quite a lot of experience in dealing with the Chinese and they are practical people. Therefore, I think that Indian Government must see China positively, rather than treating China as a competitor in Sri Lanka. India has to try and treat China as a partner, as another fellow Asian nation, participating to solve the problems of Sri Lanka.

Asian Tribune: So do you expect that when Sri Lanka gives preference to China, will it not tilt the balance in the bilateral relationship with India?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: It might affect the balance, if in case Sri Lanka Government, when exercising its sovereign rights, gives them bases and tolerates military presence etc,.

Asian Tribune : In that case, do you think that India can take counter measures against Sri Lanka?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: It is no use just having strained relationship. We must make it very clear to Sri Lanka that if anything that adversely affect our national security and our preparedness and if you allow countries that would really threaten us, and then we will have to take counter measures. That would be a more practical way of dealing with other countries. You can’t be sullen or upset or have strained relationship. We have to be very frank with Sri Lanka and if you don’t agree, then we will have to take our own steps.

Jayalalithaa factor and the bilateral relations

Asian Tribune: You may be aware as Sri Lanka continued to have very good relationship with India and so far India has not come across any external threats emerging from the south?

But unfortunately, since of late, after J.Jayalaithaa has become the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, she is bent on making provocative and anti-Sri Lankan statements, which is causing lot of concern. Her statements are uncalled for. She is just only a provincial state Chief Minister and the Central Government of India in the interest of the country’s national security has so far not come forward to caution her or advise her to desist from making such provocative statements against Sri Lanka?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: Ha .. Hah…ha. (Laughing loudly), I think the better thing is just ignoring what she says. She doesn’t have any clout with the Centre and on her own, she cannot take any steps. She is just doing the usual jingoism and they are all for the records and I think that Sri Lankan should not take her seriously.

Asian Tribune: Also Ms. Jayalalithaa has said that Rajapaksa should be brought under International Criminal Court and tried for crimes against humanity and for war crimes.

Dr. Subaramanian Swamy: Ha ..ha ..ha (Laughing). I will not take that seriously.

Asian Tribune : We are of the opinion that she is playing some form of bizarre politics to silence her junior partners and the Eelam groups in Tamil Nadu?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I think that she is trying to put the blame on the DMK Chief Karunanidhi, as he did not defend the Tamils. I don’t think her utterances have to be taken seriously, as her utterances won’t have any impact with the Centre. Be assured that her comments will not make any difference with the centre.

Sri Lanka and the Devolution of Power

The real question is that the Sri Lankan Government has to look at is that there was an understanding once the LTTE issue was solved, then the Sri Lankan Government would take steps to devolve powers to see that the Tamils also have some form of political powers. For instance, as one calls it as a place in the constitution and then the devolved unit may have some freedom from the centre and that kind of federal, or semi federal or quasi-federal set up is what Sri Lanka would bring about. It would be the understanding and particularly we are very concerned and unhappy as Sri Lanka has so far not come forward to affect any devolution of powers, after all the support given to Sri Lanka in the war against the LTTE. Unfortunately, Sri Lanka as agreed has not implemented any steps regarding the devolution of power. We still positively await for it.

Darusman Report and Accountability

Asian Tribune : What do you think of the Darusman report that has been prepared on the request of the UN Secretary General?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I don’t think very much of it, because they have found and have held both the Sri Lankan Army as well as the LTTE guilty of crimes. They have focused on Sri Lankan Government but the fact is that they have also said that the LTTE too was engaged in these atrocious acts. I think that this report, I will say, it was lobbied for and got it done. So such reports come out and in the end this is just a report and nothing is going to come out of it.

In the fight against terrorism we in India know that we have hot spots like Manipur, Nagaland as well as Kashmir and what we have done there might have affected the civilian population, we are sorry about it, but nothing more we can do and this can’t be helped.

When the World War II was going on the British bombed the entire city of Dresden
(In March 1945, the Nazi regime ordered its press to publish a death toll of 200,000 for the Dresden raids. Death toll estimates as high as 500,000 have been given. An independent investigation commissioned by the city council in 2010 reported a maximum of 25,000 victims) and all the civilians died in that city and furthermore American dropped the atomic bomb in Japan and the entire Hiroshima and Nagasaki was devastated. (The Hiroshima bomb, known as “Little Boy” – a reference to former President Roosevelt, contained the equivalent of between 12 and 15,000 tons of TNT and devastated an area of five square miles (13 square kilometres). More than 60% of the buildings in the city were destroyed.
Official Japanese figures at the time put the death toll at 118,661 civilians. But later estimates suggest the final toll was about 140,000, of Hiroshima’s 350,000 population, including military personnel and those who died later from radiation. Many have also suffered long-term sickness and disability.
Three days later, the United States launched a second, bigger atomic bomb against the city of Nagasaki. The device known as “Fat man”, after Winston Churchill, weighed nearly 4,050 kg (nearly 9,000lb).
Nagasaki is surrounded by mountains and because of this the level of destruction was confined to about 2.6 square miles or 6.7 square kilometres. Nearly 74,000 were killed and a similar number injured.
The two atomic bombs, with the Soviet declaration of war against Japan on 8 August 1945, finally left the Japanese no choice. )
It was done to bring the war to an end. Therefore I don’t think too much of these reports.

As far as I am concerned, I am only concerned whether Rajapaksa will bring changes in the Constitution of Sri Lanka so that there are some constitutional guarantees for devolution of power. That will be the key question in which his future would be decided in the History.

Asian Tribune: Also have you seen the documentary “Sri Lanka Killing Field, put out by Channel 4.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I don’t think too much about such media reports. Regarding these media reports, I like to go into the circumstances these media reports were prepared and how did they decide on the content. I have seen these kinds of reports about what has happened in India, I don’t take it seriously and I think Sri Lanka should not take it seriously.

About Rahul Gandhi

Asian Tribune: I have also read your comments about Rahul Gandhi – the king in waiting – future, political future.

Dr, Subramanian Swamy: I think he is a mentally deficient person and he is unfit to be in any position of authority. He has been flunking all his exams – in fact failed all exams in colleges. He has been actually detoxified many times for drugs and he has been pulling out with so many women of different nationalities and I don’t think he is a stable person.

2 G Spectrum Scam and Dayanidhi Maran

Asian Tribune: Regarding this 2 G Spectrum, what do you think of the CBI’s line of action?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: CBI is to report to the Supreme Court and this one is a major development because of my petition. Second is that in my opinion that CBI has already prepared sufficient materials to book and convict large number of people and we are at present just thinking of how it can be expanded to bring more people in this picture.

Asian Tribune: What do you think of the plight of this Dayanidhi Maran, the grand nephew of DMK patriarch M.Karunanidhi?

Dr. Subaramanian Swamy: Dayanidhi Maran is the man alleged to have forced Sivasankaran of Air Cell to sell to Anandakrishnan of Malaysia, who has been alleged to be an LTTE supporter. We think in any case, in telecom there should not be so many foreigners. Now we have got the Pakistanis. We got the Chinese through the Telenor and now we have the LTTE. I think what he has done; he has committed a crime – a crime against the nation through Anandakrishnan.

Asian Tribune: Do you think that he will be booked also?

Dr. Subaramanian Swamy: Of course, the process is on and I expect that within two weeks it might happen.

Asian Tribune: So you think Dayanidhi Maran will be summoned for inquiry and subsequently … what will happen to him?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: Yes, they will call him for an interrogation and if they find that he is not telling the truth, they might arrest him.

About Minister P.Chidamparam & 2 G Spectrum Scam

Asian Tribune: Yes.. What about the case of P. Chidamparam? You are also talking about him?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: Yes. Chidamparam must be indicted as he is deeply involved in this scam. Mr. A. Raja is in jail because he fixed the price at 1/10th of the market price saying that this is the price prevailed on 2001 and he is in jail for that. That caused the loss to the government. This was not a decision Mr. Raja took alone. This is a joint decision with Mr. Chidamparam.

On November, 2008, Subramanian Swamy wrote to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and followed it up with four more letters seeking sanction to prosecute A. Raja in regard to 2G telecom Spectrum Scam. When the Prime Minister didn’t take any decision, Subramanian Swamy went to Supreme Court. On 27 November 2010, Subramanian Swamy announced that he will file a criminal case against former union minister A. Raja in the 2G Spectrum Scam before the Special Court for Corruption Cases in connection with the charges of irregularities in 2G spectrum allocation. The Supreme Court of India took Swamy’s complaints on record [With Case type:Writ Petition (Civil),Case No:10, Year:2011]. The Comptroller and Auditor-General’s report had put the presumptive loss to the government at Rs.1.75 lakh crore, but according to Dr. Swamy, the gratification shared would be only about Rs.60,000 crore.
Asian Tribune: How did Home Minister P. Chidambaram come into the picture?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: He came into the picture because the cabinet in 2001 decided that the price of Spectrum will be decided by two ministers jointly and one is the Finance Minister and other is the Telecom Minister. At that time Mr. Chidambaram was the Finance Minister.

Asian Tribune: Do you think Mr. Chidambaram had vested interest in fixing the price with Raja?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I think he got Rs. Five thousand crores as a cut from Mr. Raja.
Asian Tribune: How can you substantiate that?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I will substantiate it only in the Supreme Court and I don’t think other than that, I should substantiate to anyone else.

Asian Tribune: How can that be? You are making a highly defamatory statement and I think it is incumbent on your part to substantiate.

Dr. Subaramanian Swamy: So far I have been making many statements and I have been substantiating them in the courts. I think you have to trust my word for it.

Asian Tribune: I am asking this because you are to substantiate these allegations. Have you got anything such as either documents or witnesses to substantiate these allegations?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: Without evidence, I never talk.

Asian Tribune : I personally know that. That is the personal understanding about you I have. That is different. But it is our duty to enlighten our readers.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: In fact, the Asian Tribune readers should know that Mr. Raja is in jail today because of me.

Asian Tribune: Yes we know that.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: So obviously I know enough of that subject. I don’t have to present everyday to another court. I have to go before the Supreme Court of India. Therefore I can’t go before every tribunal. There is no People’s Court as such for me to go and substantiate my statements.

Asian Tribune : I am associated with you for a very long number of years and I personally know you well. I know that you always do your home work very well. In conclusion, I wish to ask you a last question. Do you propose to visit Sri Lanka?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: I was told by one of the high ranking Sri Lanka Government media officials that an invitation is on the way. When I receive such an invitation, I will be happy to visit Sri Lanka. First, the invitation must come. Whenever the Sri Lankan Government is ready to receive me, then I will be happy to come.

Asian Tribune: I think the Sri Lankan Government would take note of this interview. In case if the Sri Lankan Government feels that you are an anti-Sonia Gandhi person and in case by inviting you they might offend the feelings of Dr. Manmohan Singh, Ms. Sonia Gandhi and the ruling elite of the Indian Congress?

Dr. Subramanian Swamy: If your government entertain such views, then let them not invite me.

Asian Tribune: Thank you very much for your time.

  1. Dr. Subramaniam Swamy one person can fix all India’s problems . When he is outside govt can do much, Imagine when he is inside what he can contribute. His contribution during Emergency all forgotten Looks like Hindus have no plans to save their nation.

  2. Dr. Swamy thinks that he knows everything and he is extra smart. Jeyalalithaa is a great leader of the Tamils all over the world after MGR and her judgment is perfect.
