Ministers in 'coat and tie' look like waiters, says Subramanian Swamy

New Delhi: In what is certainly not going to go down well with the Union Cabinet ministers, Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy, Friday, made a very sarcastic remark saying that ministers in 'coat and tie' look like waiters.

While taking to Twitter, the Bharatiya Janata Party MP wrote:, “BJP should direct our Ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian clothes while abroad. In coat and tie they look like waiters.”

Of late, Swamy has launched a tirade against the Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan, Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian. The firebrand BJP leader has demanded their sacking saying they are not working towards India's interests.

On Thursday, the Rajya Sabha MP fired a fresh salvo targeting Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das, while making light of Finance Minister Arun Jaitley's support for the official.

Meanwhile, Swamy on Thursday also put on hold his demand for sacking Chief Economic Advisor following the government's strong support for him but said that he "will wait for events to prove truth."

The BJP MP had publicly attacked the RBI Governor, saying he was "mentally not fully Indian" and also written to the Prime Minister demanding that he be denied an extension. Last week, Rajan announced that he was not taking a second term.
