Subramanian Swamy writes to PM Modi, asks him to remove Raghuram Rajan as RBI Governor


Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking him to remove Raghuram Rajan as the Reserve Bank of India Governor.


According to an NDTV report, Swamy, in his letter, said: “I am shocked by the willful and apparently deliberate attempt by Dr Rajan to wreck the Indian economy… (Rajan) is acting more as a disrupter of the Indian economy than the person who wants the Indian economy to improve.”

Swamy had said, “In my opinion, the RBI Governor is not apt for our country. His move to increase the interest rates, so as to cut down inflation and stabilise the economy, has backfired and has badly affected the nation.
