Several netas from mainstream political parties queued up to pay respect to the female terrorist at her home as she was released on parole for one day. 
 
 In their zeal to share camera space with Nalini these political opportunists forgot that by glorifying this enemy of the state they were doing a great disservice to the nation. In poll season unfortunately these netas are ready to compromise the integrity of the country. 
 
The silence of the three main parties in Tamil Nadu is defeaning but not surprising. Sidling up to the LTTE may not be a new phenomenon in Tamil Nadu but it certainly sends the wrong signal to the nation at large.
