New Delhi: Congress leader Pramod Tiwari on Friday gave a notice in the Rajya SabhaRajya SabhaRajya Sabha for a discussion in zero hour over Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy’s remark on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan.

“I have given a notice in the Rajya Sabha for discussion in zero hour over Swamy’s remark on RBI Governor. Inflation has increased and the economy has been badly hit. And the government is trying to put the onus on Rajan,” Tiwari told ANI.

Days after being nominated to the Rajya Sabha, Swamy yesterday embarrassed the government by training guns at Rajan and said that he should be removed as he is not fit for the nation.

“In my opinion, the RBI Governor is not apt for our country. His move to increase the interest rates , so as to cut down inflation and stabilize the economy, has backfired and has badly affected the nation,” Swamy told reporters.

“All the industries have collapsed and as a result unemployment has increased. In my opinion, he should be removed as early as possible,” he added. (ANI)
