Attack on Sonia Gandhi

The senior BJP leader attacked Sonia Gandhi over the AgustaWestland chopper deal without any hard evidence.

The Italian court has not indicted the Congress leader nor have the Indian agencies named her, despite the BJP government pursuing this case for about two years. So, there is no proof of Sonia or other Congress leaders receiving a bribe from the Italian company, Finmeccanica.

But the mere Italian connection is enough for Swamy to link Sonia with the bribery scandal. Very few 76-year-old politicians would do that. Well, that is what makes Swamy different in Indian politics.

Spectrum allocation case

In the spectrum allocation case, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India had come out with its report on it, but it was Swamy, the litigant, who turned it into a political scandal that swamped the government and exposed it completely.

He has been an effective litigant who has cornered the UPA government and, more so, the Gandhi family.


Why Subramanian Swamy is a maverick muckraker

Subramanian Swamy has always managed to be the cynosure of the media, thanks to the controversial statements he makes with much gusto, but seldom on facts and findings. The latest person on his radar is Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan, who is deemed unfit for the post by the former.

We take you through the five defining moments when Swamy created high-voltage political drama, paying little attention to the evidence and probe reports:

National Herald case

Despite the National Herald share switch not involving any loss of public money, Swamy was successful in scripting a high-profile political drama involving the Gandhis.

In political terms, he has been more successful than any other Sangh Parivar insider in cornering the Gandhis and pursuing them relentlessly.

1. His Father Was a Well Known Mathematician

Swamy was born in Mylapore, Chennai on Sept 15, 1939.

His father, Sitaram Subramanian was at one time director of the Central Statistical Institute.

2. He Graduated in Mathematics from Hindu College (Finished 3rd in DU)

It was in the very stars that he was born under. He was not six months old, when his mathematician father Sitaram Subramanian, in 1940, changed jobs and moved from Chennai (then Madras) to Delhi, the seat of power.

3. Director of the Institute Happened to a be Professional Rival of Swamy’s Father

The institute at that time was headed by PC Mahalanobis who happened to be a professional rival of Swamy’s father. So when Mahalanobis learnt about Swamy, the latter began to get lower grades. Too bad (for Mahalanobis).

Mahalanobis was the brain behind setting up of the Planning Commission, something that Prime Minister Narendra Modi after many decades intends to dismantle.

He was the kind of person that no one (at least not someone studying at his institute) would want to develop animosity with.

4. Swamy Taught the Big Guy a Lesson

Swamy’s ability at crunching numbers and postulating theories, pitched him against PC Mahalanobis.His paper ‘Notes on Fractile Graphical Analysis’ published in Econometrica, 1963 had questioned a Mahalanobis statistical analysis method as not being original but only a differentiated form of an older equation, was an early expression of the rebel that Swamy is, a trait that has found expression both as an intellectual and as a politician.

5. Got a Recommendation for Harvard

Having demonstrated his ability for research, Hendrik , the American economist who was the referee for the paper published in Econometrica, recommended Swamy’s admission to Harvard.

7. Co-Authored a Paper with the 1st American Who Won Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences

Swamy co-authored a paper on theory of index numbers with Paul Sameulson. The paper was published in 1974.

8. Became an Expert on the Chinese Economy

In 1975, Swamy wrote a book titled  “Economic growth in China and India,1952-70: A Comparative Appraisal”

He learnt Chinese/Mandarin in just 3 months (when someone challenged him to learn this tough-language-to-learn in a year).

9. Dared the Establishment during the Emergency Days

Independence and the gross human tragedy that unfolded after partition, was something that a young Swamy saw up close. He was witness to the partition survivors’ daily struggle taking place just outside the family’s government allotted house at Turkman Gate, Delhi.

The emergency (1975-77) made a political hero out of him. Swamy defied and evaded arrest warrants for the entire 19 month period.

His most daring act during emergency was coming into India from America, breaking through security cordons of parliament, attending a Lok Sabha session on 10th August 1976, managing to slip out of parliament, escaping from the country and returning to America.

10. Swamy’s Blueprint – A Guiding Light for Manmohan Singh in Early 1990s

As the country’s commerce and law minister during Chandra Shekhar’s brief term as Prime Minister in 1990-91, Swamy laid the foundations of economic reforms in India by creating a blue print.

The same blue print was later picked up by finance minister Manmohan Singh under Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao to deliver the country of Nehruvian socialism.

11. Given a Cabinet Rank When in Opposition

Being president of Janta Party and an opposition leader, Swamy has the distinction of being handed out a cabinet rank by the ruling party.Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao in 1994 appointed Swamy as Chairman with Commission of Labor Standards and International Trade with a cabinet rank.

12. Played a Crucial Role in Exposing 2G Scam

After a long hibernation, Swamy writing to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in 2008 seeking permission to prosecute A Raja over illegal allotment of mobile spectrum bands unraveled the colossal 2G Scam.
