Sack Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian: Swamy

New Delhi, June 22 (IANS) BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy on Wednesday targeted Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian and asked the government to “sack” him.

In a series of tweets, Swamy wrote, “Who said to US Cong on 13/3/13 the US should act against India to defend US Pharmaceuticals interests? Arvind Subramanian MoF (Ministry of Finance)!! Sack him!”

Subramanian had taken charge in October 2014 succeeding Raghuram Rajan.

In another tweet, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said, “Guess who encouraged Congress to become rigid on GST clauses? Jaitely’s economic adviser Arvind Subramanian of Washington DC.”

The Rajya Sabha MP also wondered why the core economic sectors could not perform in the two years rule of the Narendra Modi government and said: “Now PTs (Patriotic Tweeples) can understand why our core economic sectors could not perform last two years. Trojan horses galore in MoF/ Finance Institutions.”

“Was AS (Arvind Subramanian) deposing before US Congress Committee against India as a US citizen or Indian? Does any PT know?”

Swamy had also criticised Rajan, accusing the RBI Governor of derailing the Indian economy by keeping the lending rates high.

Rajan has decided to return to academics at the end of his term in September.
