Janata Dal (U) Leader KC Tyagi said, "BJP MP Subramanian Swamy is an unguided missile of BJP. He is trying to become the railing point of the dissatisfaction against the Modi government." Congress leader Tom Vadakkan suspects a political conspiracy behind Swamy's vitriolic statements against RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Adviser (CEA) Arvind Subramanian. He said, "This is an attack on the finance minister of the country. I think he probably has been promised something."
