Subramanian Swamy has written to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, requesting him to impose President’s rule in Tamil Nadu, keeping in mind Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s ill health. Swamy in his letter has mentioned that the state is in “administrative disarray, following the indefinite hospitalisation of the Chief Minister and her having to remain for health reasons incommunicado”.

He further added that a retired Chief Secretary is handling the state’s affairs, which has resulted in “activisation of sleeper cells of the ISIS” in some districts and other disruptive activities causing upheaval in Tamil Nadu.

Swamy has urged Rajnath Singh to invoke Article 356 of the Constitution, put the Legislative Assembly in suspended action and to impose AFSPA in all southern districts as well as Chennai for a period of six months till CM Jayalalithaa is able to attend office. He added that such an action is constitutional as well as urgent.

On Thursday evening, after Apollo hospital, where Jayalalithaa is admitted, released a medical bulletin, Swamy tweeted  “Centre should consider dejure President’s Rule in Tamil Nadu for six months so that JJ can undergo full medical treatment. Law and order is in bad shape.”  He also tweeted, “At the moment in TN, there is de facto President’s Rule which is illegal — Sheela Balakrishnan and Ramanujam running the administration.”

Suspense has continued over the condition of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s health. The bulletin released by Apollo hospital read, “Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s health continues to improve and is responding adequately to the comprehensive treatment being given to her.” However, there has been a general hush over the CM’s health in the local media.

              Swamy is the clown of Indian Politics. I have utmost respect for Tamils but this guy has always worked against the interest of Tamils. He is an egoistic envious unstable unpredictable and pessimist creature who comes with stupid theories and notion of his own.

                        AIADMK needs to identify a temporary CM till JJ is back in action like the way it was when she was in jail.lt;br/gt;Hard to believe that there is no 2nd in command (Home minister, Finance Minister) to take over while JJ is in Hospital. President's rule looks ridiculous deputy CM / Temp CM is the need of the hour to fill the gap.

                                Swamy is known for his intellectual views. Here is an another example of logical thinking with 100% legal approach. This man had Guts to spell out what is grooming on ground. Very welldone.

                                  Swamy you did not write letter to PMO or Home Ministry on Gujarat during Patel agitation/riots,corruption charges against earlier CM's daughters as well as in Haryana during Jat riots causing widespread damage due to lacklustre admin. Or even in MP due to the famous/notorious vyapam/medical admission scam. Is it because your memory got disturbed that you forget them without your knowing due to old age or convenience.. Do you have any answers to these type of questions or simple p the buck by being arrogant...lt;br/gt;No wonder above 75 are already declared brain dead in BJP...
