Dr Subramanian Swamy is a Genuine Indian Hero

| 55 Comments

There’s no doubt in my mind that what India needs is a dozen Dr Subramanian Swamys. One Dr Swamy is definitely not enough. Why? Because the garbage which needs taking out cannot be done by one person, however brilliant, hardworking and committed. But for now, let us thank our lucky stars that India has Dr Swamy at least. He has the nature of a warrior, a karma yogi. But he is also a gyan yogi. With that said for the record, I would like to share with you a few videos of his you must watch.

Dr Swamy is indefatigable. Check out the letter the wrote to the appointed prime minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, on Nov 24th. I quote it in full, for the record.

November 24, 2010.

Dr. Manmohan Singh,
Prime Minister of India,
South Block,
New Delhi.

Dear Prime Minister:

You may by now have realized that the 2G Spectrum scandal is not only bad for the country in the dimension of corruption, but now it emerges that there is a national security dimension too. The RAW, IB, CBI, ED all have enough material which they may have placed before you regarding the dubious aspects of the principal player in this scam.

According to my information two sisters, Anushka and Nadia, of Ms Sonia Gandhi had received sixty percent of the kickbacks in this deal i.e. Rs.18,000 crores each. The frequent travel of Sonia Gandhi and her immediate family to Malaysia, Hongkong, Dubai and parts of Europe including London requires to be probed under the law. What requires your special attention is the mode of the travel, not by commercial airliners, but by jets provided by the corporate sector which itself is illegal under the DGCA Rules. I find that often Ms.Sonia Gandhi and family have traveled to Dubai and then traveled onwards on private jets provided by dubious Arab business interests to Europe. It is not clear on what passport they have traveled. In Dubai they were felicitated by agencies of countries which are hostile to India including that of Pakistan.

You can no more not take a stand when evil is permeating in the country in the form of terrorism, religious conversion and demographic infiltration. The ill-gotten money in billions of dollars equivalent, the money laundering and Participatory Notes have all undermined our national integrity. The time is come for you to take a stand.

I am familiar with the information and data with our intelligent agencies. I also know that you can seek cooperation of other countries especially the United States in pooling information especially from inter Intelligence interaction that take place regularly. I hope therefore you will rise to the need of the hour and take effective steps to set right the sorry state of affairs in the country caused by overtly and covertly resident foreigners. In this connection I would like to meet you at the earliest. My Secretary will be in touch with your Secretariat to fix a time.

Yours sincerely,
(SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY)

  • Cynic

    Yes, he is a genuine Indian hero who doesn’t have to struggle for his daily bread. So he takes it upon himself to peddle ill will in this already fractured, fragile country. He is a genuine Indian hero and like his ilk, he is quite a rabble rouser.

    Hi Atanu,

    I have been reading your blog for over a year now, really like reading it and agree with most of your views. But I am unable to understand why you prefer to stay and teach in US ( last I read was that you are teaching in UCB, if that has changed then please excuse me). Certainly there more to be gained if you take up a career in India( as an Economics prof). Also I feel there would be more impact if you could give your political discourse here in India. You say we need more Dr Subramanian Swamys, you fit the role perfectly. Why don’t you take it up. Thank You.
