Prime Minister Narendra Modi today appeared to censure party MP Subramanian Swamy, who has been making headlines courtesy an unrelenting vitriolic Twitter campaign against Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan and top Finance Ministry officials, including bête noire Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
In an interview to a news channel, Modi termed such remarks “inappropriate”. He also had a good word for Rajan. “My experience with him has been good and I appreciate the work he has done. He is no less patriotic. He loves India. Wherever he will work, he will work for India and he is patriotic,” the Prime Minister said.
Though Swamy’s name was not mentioned, Modi’s reply to a query on “your Rajya Sabha MP” was seen as “a message” and “a caution” to the maverick BJP leader.
