New Delhi, June 25 (IANS) Businessman Robert Vadra has attacked BJP parliamentarian Subramanian Swamy, calling him an “attention seeker” and a “classist” for his comment that ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters.

In a Faceboook post, Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, said: “So is there no dignity in being a Waiter?”

“The attention seeking BJP MP Swamy’s comment “Ministers who wear a coat and tie “look like waiters” and must be instructed to wear Indian clothes. Undermining waiters who work hard for a living; making condescending and derogatory remarks about them is deplorable and classist…,” Vadra said.

In a tweet on Friday, Swamy urged the BJP leadership to ask ministers to wear “traditional and modernised” Indian clothes when they go abroad.
