He said that he will “suspend” his demand for sacking the chief economic advisor if the government considers him patriotic despite his attempts in the past of trying to twist India’s arm.

Reports suggest that BJP president Amit Shah had asked the newly-inducted Rajya Sabha MP to hold his fire against the CEA.

A day after the government strongly defended Subramanian, Swamy said he would “wait for events to prove the truth.”

Swamy had demanded ‘sacking’ of Subramanian for taking anti-India stance when he was an IMF economist in Washington prior to joining the Finance Ministry.

In a series of tweets he targeted Subramanian for being a green card holder and for earlier backing Washington in a row over intellectual property rights.



On Swamy’s tweets, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said: “Government has full confidence in CEA. His advice to government from time to time has been of great value”.

Swamy’s attack follows reports of Subramanian being the most-likely candidate to succeed Rajan among five candidates the government was said to be considering.

Swamy has also accused Subramanian of encouraging the Congress to harden stand on the goods and services tax, stuck in the Rajya Sabha.

The senior BJP leader also said that he had a list of 27 people with him and that he will ‘fix’ them soon.

Subramanian was appointed CEA by the BJP government in October 2014 after his predecessor Raghuram Rajan moved to the RBI as Governor in September 2013.
