Subramanian Swamy is one of most mentioned names of 2011. Subramanian Swamy is turning out to be most dangerous man for UPA. More dangerous than anna hazare and baba ram dev. While Anna is biggest news maker of 2011 and his movement has touched millions of India and brought corruption issue at center stage , why subramanian swamy poses bigger challenge for UPA-2 is because subramanian swamy is fighting battle in court…
A lot of people ask the question that who is subramaniyam Swami. Well for those who dont know him , here is brief about him.
Subramaniyam swami is PHD in economics. He has studied in prestigious Indian Statistical Institute and Harvard university. He later on taught in harvard and IIT Delhi. Subramaniyam swamy is one of founder members of Janta Party. He was part of planning commission too. He prepared blue print for economic reforms in India during his tenure as cabinet minister in chandra shekar government. The blue print was later adopted and worked upon by dr man mohan singh during narshima rao government.
Subramaniyam swami is one of few politicians who have contested elections from different places including mumbai , uttar pradesh and tamil nadu . This reflects his nature where he doesnot shy away from taking on challenges .
Subramaniyam swami has one distinctive practice too..Despite not being a lawyer he himself argues in cases against him (yes there are many who have filed defamation cases against him) and also he argues in cases where he had filed petition.
He is arguing the infamous 2g spectrum case. He had written letter to dr manmohan singh on 2g spectrum scam and A Raja. When dr singh failed to do much about it , dr swami approached supreme court and what we saw after that is CBI inquiry , raja,kanimozhi going to jail.
Dr subramanian swamy’s next target is p c chidambaram and also Robert vadra whom dr swami alleges to be beneficiary of 2g spectrum scam. He also alleges that sonia gandhi’s two sisters received Rs 18000 crore each as bribe money from the scam.
Dr Swamy also questioned Sonia Gandhi’s citizenship and her right to become prime minister of India as per constitution.
Few months back dr subramanian swamy made news for his article on DNA where he alleged that “Muslims of India are being programmed by a slow reactive process to become radical and thus slide into suicide against Hindus”. He also called for disenfranchising non-Hindus who refuse to acknowledge their Hindu ancestry, prohibiting conversion from Hinduism to other religions, and annexing part of Bangladesh in retaliation for Bangladeshi illegal immigration in India.
Congress worker attacked his house in reaction to this article. Subramaniam swamy was slammed by liberals and seculars for the article. Subramaniam Swamy , never the less remains adamant and sticks to his view mentioned in article.
But what makes him , news maker of 2011 is not his article but his fight against government in 2g spectrum scam. The scam known as ‘Mother of All Scams’ had made India loose 1,76,000 crore Rs. If the case moves towards its logical conclusion , it would have huge impact on corruption in India , especially the nexus between corporates and politicians.
