Swamy’s remarks are completely his personal opinion: BJP

New Delhi: BJP today said it does not agree with its Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy’s criticism of Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian and termed it as “completely his personal opinion”.

“The party does not agree with his views. This is completely his personal opinion,” its national secretary Shrikant Sharma told a press conference after Swamy demanded that the CEA be sacked.

Sharma was asked about the party’s views on Swamy’s remarks.

Swamy had earlier launched a no-holds-barred attack on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan. Asked about it, BJP President Amit Shah had said that the party’s position is articulated by him.

Rajan had last week announced that he would not be seeking a second term.
