Arun Jaitley, Subramanian Swamy spar on Twitter over CEA
BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Thursday appeared to target Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das, which prompted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to call it an “unfair and false” attack on a disciplined civil servant. “I think there a property deal case pending against him (Das) for assisting PC swallow Mahabalipuram prime locations,” Swamy tweeted.
It was in reply to his twitter handle followers who had sought blacklisting of RBI Deputy Governor Urjit Patel and Das from RBI Governorship as well as sending Das back to his parent cadre Tamil Nadu. Shortly thereafter, Jaitley, who is in China, tweeted, “An unfair and false attack on a disciplined civil servant in the Finance Ministry.”
on the other hand Swamy, taking his attack to those in the Finance Ministry to a new level, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Friday issued veiled threat to those asking him to follow restraint saying if he “disregarded discipline there will be a bloodbath.” Taking his attack to those in the Finance Ministry to a new level, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Friday issued veiled threat to those asking him to follow restraint saying if he “disregarded discipline there will be a bloodbath.”
“People giving me unasked for advice of discipline and restraint don’t realise that if I disregard discipline there would be a bloodbath,” he tweeted in an obvious attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
Though he did not name Jaitley, he was obviously referring to the Minister urging him for restraint and discipline in the wake of his attacks on Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian on Wednesday and his use of the word discipline in defending Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das yesterday.
In another apparent swipe at Jaitley, whose photographs of meeting with the Bank of China Chairman Tian Guoli in Beijing in a longue suit appeared in newspapers today, Swamy asked BJP to advise ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian cloths when abroad.
“BJP should direct our Ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian clothes while abroad. In coat and tie they look like waiters,” Swamy said in another tweet.
Swamy has been active on Twitter over the last two-three days, attacking officials of Finance Ministry and taking swipe at Jaitley.
