BJP’s firebrand leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday fired a fresh salvo at Jamm and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti comparing her with the “tail of a dog, which can’t be straightened”.
“There should be President's rule in her place ...she is like tail of a dog, which can't be straightened,” Times of India quoted Swamy as saying in its report.
“Mehbooba kabhi sudhregi nahi (Mehbooba will never change). She has old links with terrorists,” he further added.
Swamy’s remarks appear to be directly aimed at the teamwork of Mehbooba and Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had agreed on the common goal to combat terrorism and address popular demands.
A week ago, Swamy had launched a scathing attack on LG Najeeb Jung saying he is “another 420 like (Delhi CM) Kejriwal”.
“In my opinion, this LG of Delhi Mr. Jung is unsuited for this high post. He is another 420 like Kejri. We need a Sangh person in Delhi (sic),” he tweeted.
Swamy’s observation about the LG came amidst reports that Jung has overturned ‘illegal decisions’ of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in appointing several officials at top offices.
In the past, Swamy had targeted outgoing RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan by calling him ‘mentally not fully Indian’, forcing PM Narendra Modi to rebuke the Rajya Sabha MP for his ‘craving for publicity’.
