Swamy attacks Economic Affairs Secretary, Jaitley defends

New Delhi, June 23: After targeting RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday took a dig at the Secretary Economic Affairs, Shaktikanta Das. However, Fince Minister Arun Jaitley termed Swamy’s salvo as “unfair and false”.

When a Twitter user asked for the removal of Das, Swamy replied that he feels a case is pending against the Secretary for assisting former Fince Minister P. Chidambaram.  Replying to the tweet, Swamy said: “I think there is a property deal case pending against him for assisting PC swallow Mahabalipuram prime locations.” But Jaitley came out in full defence of his ministry official. “An unfair and false attack on a disciplined civil servant in the Fince Ministry,” Jaitley tweeted.
