New Delhi: In a direct attack on the Narendra Modi government, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday said that the real target of BJP leader Subramaniam Swamy is not Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian but Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. "Subramaniam Swamy now guns for Arvind Subramanian, Economic Advisor to NDA (National Democratic Alliance). Target is Arun Jaitley not Arvind Subramanian," Digvijaya Singh tweeted. "Is Modi handing over Finance Ministry to Subramaniam Swamy," the Congress genereal secretary questioned.
The tweets came after the BJP leader targeted Subramanian and demanded the Central government sack him. "He (Subramanim Swamy) has been claiming that PM has assured him as quid pro quo if he targeted Nehru Gandhi family," the Congress leader said. "Are we in for another economic Colonialism of these Super Powers which took Congress years of struggle to free India? I really think so," he added. Blaming Modi the Congress leader said, "Masters of Double Speak. Modi appears to have assured Economic Super Powers to hand over the unfettered reins of Indian Economy to them." "A complete U-Turn by Modi Sarkar. Every time UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government opened up the economy there was a barrage of criticism from Modi, BJP and RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh)," Singh accused.
