BJP MP and eminent legal activist Subramanian Swamy has levelled serious allegations on Sonia Gandhi and P Chidambaram. Swamy has alleged that Sonia Gandhi and P Chidambaram had conspired to help LTTE chief Prabhakaran when Mahinda Rajapaksa led Sri Lankan government was exterminating LTTE.
In a Tweet shared on September 20, Subramanian Swamy has alleged that TDK (a term Swamy uses for Sonia Gandhi) had sent a message (through P Chidambaram) to LTTE chief Prabhakaran that the Indian Navy would come and rescue him.
At the behest of TDK, PC sent a message in 2019 during final battle, to Chief Eli Prabhakaran to await Indian Navy to come to rescue him. Navy did come it but it was of Sri Lanka. Chief Eli then walked out the jungle into the beach thinking it was India’s. Hence was killed

According to a report in the Daily Pioneer, Swamy has also stated that the India Navy ship which was due to reach Sri Lanka could not leave Indian waters because of stiff opposition from highest authorities. Since the war against LTTE was at its final stage, Prabhakaran could not be notified about the change of plans and was eventually killed.
Swamy’s statement has come at the wake of the recent visit of former Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was on a visit to India last week.
It is notable here that Subramanian Swamy has been a great supporter of the former Sri Lankan President and vocally praises his decisive war against the LTTE in 2009 which resulted in the total extermination of the terrorist group from Sri Lanka. In 2012 too, during a visit to the island nation, Swamy had reportedly stated that Rajapaksa is a resolute and determined leader and he deserves to be awarded India’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna for eliminating LTTE. During the visit, Swamy had also stated that Sonia Gandhi and her ‘Italian family’ had provided covert support to LTTE.
Swamy is currently pursuing a case against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for alleged corruption in the National Herald scam
