Days after claiming success in ensuring RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan does not get a second term, BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has now trained his guns on Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian.

In tweets early Wednesday morning, Swamy said it was time for the government to sack the CEA claiming he wasn’t in agreement with the BJP government’s policies including, most recently, its IPR policy.
