Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy today demanded dismissal of Defence Minister George Fernandes alleging he was a ``national security risk.''
Swamy, in a letter to President K R Narayanan, said sacked Admiral Vishnu Bhagwat's remarks on Fernandes had ``confirmed that the present Defence Minister is a national security risk and should be sacked either by the Prime Minister or by your intervention.''
Alleging that Fernandes was ``deeply involved'' with the LTTE, Swamy told reporters here ``Our Defence Minister has humiliated our top naval officer at the bidding of the Eelam.'' http://www.indianexpress.com/res/web/pIe/ie/daily/19990224/ipo24011.html
Interestingly and unsurprisingly, Swamy joined hands with George Fernandes to launch "Rashtriya Swabhiman Manch" in 2004 http://www.tribuneindia.com/2004/20041012/nation.htm#23
