BJP MP Subramanian Swamy is known for sparking up the controversial remarks and he did not stop at this time too. On twitter today he passed a taunt at RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian.
Swamy went on calling them micro minded management degree holders “foisted” by America.
Earlier, Swamy has been very critical of Raghuram for not decreasing the interest rates to improve growth.
Swamy tweeted on Thursday, “The Americans foisted on us management degree holders like R3 and AS. Management types are micro-minded while economy is general equilibrium.”

Swamy used R3 as an abbreviation for Raghuram Rajan and AS is the initials for Arvind Subramanian.
Faced with attacks, Rajan called them ad hominem.
In June he announced he won’t seek a second term after completing three-year term on September 4. Government has named RBI Deputy Governor Urjit Patel as his successor.
Rajan called these attacks by Swamu ad hominem. He will be succeeded by the new appointed RBI Governor Urjit Patel.
