"It is comedy theatre. It is having a tremendous impact when the Brexit crises is on," former Union minister Prithviraj Chavan told reporters at the AICC briefing.

He noted that at such a time, the need is of a united leadership of the External Affairs Ministry and of the Finance Ministry.

"But it is comedy theatre going on and the Prime Minister is not able to control Dr Swamy or is he working at the behest of somebody? It is an open war between Dr Swamy who wants to become the Finance Minister and Arun Jaitley," he remarked.
