Subramanian Swamy’s new found anti Muslim rhetoric has found him a new fan following among “educated class”.
However, it’s surprising how little “educated class” know about Subramanian Swamy. Especially his shady dealings with controversial godman Chandraswami (the one suspected to have poisoned ISKCON founder), his close friendship with Rajeev Gandhi & PV Narasimha Rao, his eulogies of Sonia, his bashing of Sangh Parivar in the past and his acute hatred of Vajpayee.
Swamy on Vajpayee “Just to get out of the prison on parole, Vajpayee had given a letter of apology to Indira Gandhi and had created a bad precedence.”
Swamy on Vajpayee “Morarji and Charan Singh are like Kaikeyee of the Ramayana. In the Janata Ramayana, Kooni’s role was played by Vajpayee.”
Swamy on Vajpayee “In Delhi the Japanese external affairs minister had organised a party. Vajpayee, who was present there as India’s external affairs minister, was drunk. I was also invited for that dinner. I was shocked to see the external affairs minister fully intoxicated…”
“This diseased insect” by Ram Jethmalani, at the time Jethmalani was a minister in Vajpayee Cabinet.
Jethmalani on Swamy “Chandraswami is his bosom friend. Long an absconder from justice, he returned to India only when his friend Chandra Shekhar was installed as Prime Minister and Swamy as Law Minister. When he arrived in India, Swamy received him at the Airport, presumably both for himself and the Government of India.”
Jethmalani on Swamy “CBI Joint Director N.K. Singh was investigating the St. Kitts forgery case in which Chandraswami is even now an accused. Swamy and his Government shifted that honest officer and thereby the investigation was delayed for at least two years. I have frustrated Swamy’s designs and I have become an eyesore to him.”
The Jury Is Out, profile of political dealings of Subramanian Swamy.
He(Swamy) has also played a key role in bringing down two governments, that of V.P. Singh in 1990 and the 13-month NDA government in 1998 (when he organised the infamous tea party).
He(Swamy) claims to have been offered it(Prime Ministership) once (by Sonia Gandhi, no less, in 1998), but declined.
Swamy on RSS/Hindutva “After the Babri Masjid demolition, the first thing we must do, is to disabuse the minds of the people, that RSS stands for Hindus, they have vulgarized the name Hindu, like Hitler, in the name of nationalism, vulgarized the meaning of nationalism.“
Swamy on RSS/Hindutva “A disillusioned and dispirited RSS has set the ball rolling for mid-term general elections in which it hopes that the BJP will gain an absolute majority and implement the Hindutva agenda.“
“Janata Party president Subramanian Swamy credited the outcome of the confidence vote to “three great ladies” — Sonia Gandhi, J Jayalalitha and Mayawati — describing them as Lakshmi, Saraswati and Durga.”
