A man is known by his ideology he sticks to. But, Subramanian Swamy, five time parliamentarian, two-time Union Minister changes his ideology at the drop of hat. His latest target is Rajnikanth, demi-god of southern film industry, who announced his entry into politics on new year’s eve.
“Rajnikanth is illiterate and a ‘media hype. He has no details or documents. I would expose him,” this is how Subramanian Swamy exercised his freedom of expression about Rajnikanth.
There is no doubt ‘education is the most powerful weapon to change the world’. But, if education doesn’t have intention and conviction to change the world, even high qualification is totally worthless. Ex prime minister Manmohan Singh, the highest qualified prime minister’ in the world gifted India nothing but scams and neck deep corruption. What is pathetic is high qualification from Cambridge and Oxford didn’t inculcate in him self respect, basic quality in a man. He remained ‘yes man’ of Italian Sonia Gandhi.
What is heartbreaking about Swamy is his contradiction of his earlier stand. He himself belies his own words. During the foundation of ‘Janata Party’ Swamy described Sonia Gandhi, Jayalalithaa and Mayawati as “three great ladies” and compared them with Lakshmi, Saraswati and Durga respectively. In 2012, he called Sonia Gandhi the most corrupt, fraud and traitor.
Swamy calls himself a pro-Hindutva champion. Even if it is personal choice of his daughter to get married to a Muslim, but fact is Hindutva Champion Subramanian Swamy could not influence his own daughter becoming Suhasini Haider from Suhasini Swamy. If he can not prevail upon his own daughter, how can he convince others as leader?
It is All India Panchramanadiya Nirmohi Akhara and Vishva Hindu Parishad, who are fighting for construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. Swamy intervened and took all the credit as if he is spearheading the campaign of constructing Ram temple.
Swamy equated RSS, only saviour of Hinduism, with ISI Pakistan way back in 1998. How can he equate RSS with ISI in 1998? What was his contribution in 1992? Another disturbing truth about Swamy is he launched Virat Hindustan Sangam in Sep 2014, after BJP came to power in May 2014. Instead of strengthening BJP, he chose to float his own party.
Being a BJP member when he was supposed to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi on demonetisation and GST, he called GST a disaster and demonetisation a huge collateral damage. He went on to the extent of claiming Modi govt pressurising CSO to give out good data on demonetisation. Swamy told a group of chartered accountants, “Please do not go by the quarterly (GDP) data; they are all bogus. What he deliberately missed that tax authorities have found undisclosed income of Rs 17,526 crore, and they have also seized Rs 1,003 crore after the demonetisation.
Dr. Subramanian Swamy, how can you predict that Rajnikanth would be failure or successful to bring positive changes in Tamilnadu or in Indian politics? High qualification did not teach Manmohan Singh how to be self respective. Same way your impressive qualification on your CV didn’t teach you how to stick to an ideology. Because it is ideology that paves the way to goal of changing destiny of nation.
