After targeting RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has now trained his guns on Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian and demanded his sacking.
“Who said to US Cong on 13/3/13 the US should act against India to defend US Pharmaceuticals interests? Arvind Subramanian MoF !! Sack him!!!,” he tweeted Wednesday morning.
Swamy’s attack comes in the wake of reports of Arvind Subramanian being among the probable successors of Rajan as the country’s central bank chief.
“He used to work in America, don’t even know if he’s a citizen or not but I’m sure he has a green card,” Subramanian Swamy later told ANI, adding that. “Such people who can fail our Govt, such people should be tossed out.”
Tweeple, keeping the trend, were quick to respond.
Does Subramanian Swamy like anyone?

US needs gun-control.
India needs Subramanian-Swamy-control.
To prevent indiscriminate firings.

This anti – Arvind Subramanian chorus is another perfect opportunity for another Kejri press conf:
“MODI CAN’T EVEN STAND THE NAME ARVIND!”

At this rate Subramanian Swamy will soon demand the resignation of Secretary-General of United Nations.
