Sam Pitroda Calls Swamy A Sycophant, Says Rajan Was Humiliated And Forced To Quit

Published on 27 June, 2016 at 1:24 pm By

Sam Pitroda, who is credited with developing telecommunication and technology in India during mid-80s and was an integral part of Rajiv Gandhi government, said he is disappointed over RBI governor Raghuram Rajan’s exit.

Referring to attacks unleashed on Rajan by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy, Pitroda said in an article published in a leading newspaper:

“I sympathise with Rajan, whom I know and respect a great deal. Under the circumstances, he has handled himself with dignity and respect. His departure is a national loss at this critical time in the development of India,” he said.

Swamy had leveled six allegations against Rajan:

He said he faced similar attacks when he was in Rajiv Gandhi government.

Pitroda said it was difficult for any professional and his or her family to give up a high-paying and comfortable job and the lifestyle in the US and come to work in India.

Pitroda said that the moment you fall out of favour with the leadership, people pounce on and attack you. He gave an example of how his wife received threats of rape and kidnapping of his children.

“Now, in a similar situation, a bunch of sycophants lead personal attacks everyday on TV and other public platforms on Rajan,” he wrote.

He lauded the performance of Rajan and said even if you don’t agree, at least respect him professionally.

On US citizenship, he said do citizenships and green cards matter for a leading international economist in 2016?

He also said that for people in their 40s and 50s, who are at peak of their careers, it is very difficult to take abuse and misinformation, but that’s how things work in India.

He said Rajan should leave such petty attacks behind and should move on to the next challenge and the next peak to climb.
