New Delhi, July 1: BJP MP Subramanian Swamy has yet again said something which might not go well with many.

Swamy has raised questions over Narendra Modi's 'Achche Din' and said that if he will disclose the real GDP growth figures it will create a furore.

Swamy questions 'Achche Din', says there will be furore if he reveals GDP figures.
Swamy on Friday took Twitter and said, "If I apply Samuelson-Swamy Theory of Index Numbers to India's GDP calculation or RBI interests rates, media will scream anti party activity!"

This comes a few days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi disapproved of Subramanian Swamy's attacks on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and some top finance ministry officials saying they are "inappropriate".

Calling Rajan "no less patriotic", he virtually ticked off Swamy saying "if anybody considers himself above the system then it is wrong".

The Prime Minister's comments assume significance in the context of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and the BJP distancing themselves from Swamy's recent attacks on Rajan, CEA Arvind Subramananian and Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das.

Swamy also had made some carping comments about Jaitley without taking his name.

"Whether it is in my party or not, still I think such things are inappropriate. This fondness for publicity is never going to do any good to the nation. People should conduct themselves with utmost responsibility. If anybody considers himself above the system, it is wrong," the Prime Minister told Times Now.

PM Modi said this when he was asked about the comments of Swamy without taking his name in the context of Raghuram Rajan and queried whether it was appropriate.
