PM capitulated, says Swamy

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, SEPT. 29. The Janata Party president, Dr. Subramanian Swamy, today asked the Prime Minister, Mr. A.B. Vajpayee, to prove his credentials in fighting terrorism by sending commandos to Jaffna to hunt down the LTTE chief Prabhakaran.

In a statement, Dr. Swamy said this must be done to show that the Prime Minister was serious about fighting terrorism.

Criticising Mr. Vajpayee for his comments on the ``lack of action'' on the part of the U.S. in the past regarding terrorism in Kashmir, he said, ``It is Mr. Vajpayee who is on test today and who has to establish his bonafides to fight terrorism.''

Mr. Vajpayee's bonafides had been demolished by his capitulation at Kandahar after the hijack of Indian Airlines plane and by his inaction in hunting the LTTE terrorists who were responsible for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, he said.
