Vadra says that Swamy's comments directed at Arun Jaitley were "deplorable" and "classist"
New Delhi: Robert Vadra on Saturday took a dig at Subramanian Swamy for his "derogatory" remarks about waiters and termed them "classist", prompting the BJP MP to retort that he should concentrate on "staying out of jail" instead of making political comments.

Vadra, who is Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law, attacked Swamy over his swipe at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in which he had said ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters and must be told to wear Indian clothes.
In a Facebook post, Vadra said, "Undermining waiters who work hard for a living; making condescending and derogatory remarks about them is deplorable and classist".
Asked about the reported unhappiness of the BJP leadership over his tirade against Jaitley, he said, "That is what your press is saying. I don't know."
