Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) state leadership has opined that the appointment of  Sheila Dikshit as Kerala Governor is an insult to Kerlaites.

In a joint statement issued here SJM state convenor M Gopal and Vichar Mandal Pramukh D Santhosh said that it was a disgrace to thrust upon the people of the state a tainted figure as the Governor, for the sake of her political rehabilitation.

They said that the Congress party had once again proved their liking for appointing tainted figures in important positions.

SJM leaders, referring to the recurring incidents of accidents in the Indian Navy’s submarines, demanded the resignation of Defence Minister A K Antony.

“There were nine blasts involving Indian Navy submarines.

“But no steps have been taken to  prevent such tragic incidents seriously affecting the national security and lives of the Navy men. Antony has not initiated any step to prevent such incidents in future.

“If Antony has any self respect left in him, he should resign,” the SJM leaders said in the statement.

They said that the resignation of Navy former chief D K Joshi was not only to take moral responsibility, but also to point towards the failure of the system in which he had been a part.

The SJM leaders said that under A K Antony’s leadership, the Indian defence forces met with serious setback on defence preparedness and the security of the nation was badly affected.
