Swamy attacks Economic Affairs Secretary, Jaitley defends

New Delhi, June 23 (IANS) After targeting RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday took a dig at the Secretary Economic Affairs, Shaktikanta Das.

However, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley termed Swamy’s salvo as “unfair and false”.

When a Twitter user asked for the removal of Das, Swamy replied that he feels a case is pending against the Secretary for assisting former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram.

Replying to the tweet, Swamy said: “I think there is a property deal case pending against him for assisting PC swallow Mahabalipuram prime locations.”

But Jaitley came out in full defence of his ministry official.

“An unfair and false attack on a disciplined civil servant in the Finance Ministry,” Jaitley tweeted.
