New Delhi, June 22: BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday (June 22) fired a series of tweets targeting the NDA government's Chief Economic Adviser (CEA) Subramanian.
Buouyed by the recent announcement of Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan to not opt for a second term, Swamy sought the CEA's ouster after a report cited a Bloomberg News Survey hinting at Subramanian as the top choice to succeed Rajan among the five candidates who are in the reckoning.

As Swamy had opposed Rajan as a man who was not mentally a complete Indian, he also targeted Subramanian saying the latter too is a green-card holder and had told the US Congress in 2013 that the US should act against India to defend its pharmaceutical assets. Subramanian had worked with Rajan in the International Monetary Fund.
Was AS deposing before US Cong Committee against India as a US citizen or Indian? Does any PT know?— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) June 22, 2016
Guess who encouraged Congi to become rigid on GST clauses ? Jaitely's economic adviser Arvind Subramanian of Washington DC— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) June 22, 2016
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!!!— Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) June 22, 2016
Swamy said he is also working to expose 27 people in the party.
Swamy targeted Delhi L-G and the other Arvind too
The veteran MP also recently spoke on targeting Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, accusing him of protecting the opposition Mps from the Arvind Kejriwal government's attack. Swamy said this after joining the protest by BJP MP Maheish Girri outside the residence of Chief Minister Kejriwal.
He also alleged that Jung took guidance from Ahmed Patel, the political secretary of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
Swamy also targeted the other Arvind, saying the Delhi government would survive if Kejriwal apologised and that the state government should be dismissed in the interest of the country.
Swamy said he had "dismissed" four state governments as the Union Law Minister in 1991 and the decision of the then government was backed by the Supreme Court and Parliament.
Saying Kejriwal has done fraud all his life, Swamy said he would expose the history of the former's admission in the IIT. He said he could not take up the issues of Kejriwal and Jung so far because he was busy chasing Rajan.
