New Delhi, June 24: BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy who is known for his controversial statements, has done it yet again.

After attacking Reserve Bank of India's Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian, the firebrand leader has now trained his guns on NDA's ministers.

Swamy stokes fresh controversy

Taking a dig at ministers, Swamy said that they should wear Indian clothes as they look like waiters in 'coat and tie'. "BJP should direct our Ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian clothes while abroad. In coat and tie they look like waiters, BJP leader tweeted.

Media reports say that Swamy's comment was for Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, whose photographs of meeting with the Bank of China Chairman Tian Guoli in Beijing in a longue suit appeared in newspapers recently.

Of late, Swamy has been targetting important personalities who are somewhere linked with Finance Ministry.

On Friday, Swamy 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.

Earlier, Swamy demanded Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian's sacking. Taking to micro-blogging website, Swamy said, "US Cong on 13/3/13 the US should act against India to defend US Pharmaceuticals interests? Arvind Subramanian MoF !! Sack him!!!".

Subramanian Swamy's started his tirade with scathing attack on Rajan, who announced last week that he would return to academics after his current tenure as RBI Governor ends on September 4. 

Swamy had attacked Rajan, saying he is 'unfit' for the job and is 'mentally not fully Indian'. Incidently, both Rajan and Arvind Subramanian have worked at the IMF.
