New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday termed the Tamil Nadu government's attempt to free the killers of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi as disgrace to the people and said that the decision to send troops to Sri Lanka was not taken by a single person but through an all-party parliamentary resolution.
He said it is reckless and total disregard to constitution to seek the release of former prime minister's killers by the Tamil Nadu government.
The Jayalalitha-led government has written to the Centre to consider the release of Rajiv Gandhi's assassins languishing in a Tamil Nadu jail for over two decades.
“It seems Jayalalitha has no other work except to write letters. The supreme court has already discussed the case in great detail. There is now no question of their release,” ANI quoted Swamy as saying.
He said, “The decision to send the army to Sri Lanka was not taken by Rajiv Gandhi, but it was an all-party resolution taken in parliament.”
He termed as "anti-national" the attempts seeking the release of Gandhi's killers.
