New Delhi: Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra on Friday took Subramanian Swamy calling him "attention-seeking", prompting the BJP MP to hit back sharply.
Vadra attacked Swamy over his apparent swipe at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in which he had said ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters and must be instructed to wear Indian clothes.
In a Facebook post, Vadra said, "Undermining waiters who work hard for a living; making condescending and derogatory remarks about them is deplorable and classist".
Vadra in his post referred to Swamy as "the ättention-seeking BJP MP".
Swamy soon hit back, telling reporters that, "Mr Vadra should concentrate on staying out of jail instead of making political comments," he told reporters.
Asked about the reported unhappiness of the BJP leadership over his consistent tirade against Jaitley and his ministry officials, he said, "That is what your press is saying. I don't know."
