Swamy has again written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the former IMF Chief Economist should have known the “inevitable consequence of rising and high interest rate and his policy was wilful and thus anti-national in intent.”
He alleged that Rajan raised interest rates to force recession on domestic industries, and continued to hold on to his US Green Card and sent confidential and sensitive financial information around the world. The BJP leader also accused Rajan of publicly disparaging the Modi government and alleged that he is a member of “a US dominated group” that was set up to defend America’s position in the global economy.
