Subramaniam Swamy and his Prime Ministerial ambitions!

Even as the ruling Congress party is not sure about who will be their party’s Prime Ministerial candidate for the 2014 General elections…and the principle opposition BJP, is witnessing one of its worst internal bickering in the politics of “Kaun Banega Prime Minister”…as there are too many aspirants in the party for the top Job. Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, UP Chief Minister Mayawati are also trying different routes to reach 7RCR…!!!

Dr. Subramanian Swamy, who is known as the “One Man Demolisher” in Indian politics…Now he is known as the “Conscience of the nation” after exposing the great 2G spectrum robbery….Whispers doing rounds is that Dr.Swamy is also hotly pursuing his dream of becoming the Prime Minister…and to achieve his dream, Dr.Swamy is now actively fishing in troubled waters…the Bharathiya Janata Party to try his luck to reach the hot seat.

Among the hats Swamy wore were Professor of Economics, Member of IIT Board, Member of Parliament, Member of Planning Commission, Cabinet Minister for Commerce and Law, author and of course the founder President of the Janata Party and now he wants to try for the top job as well.

Swamy is known for his dramatic allegations without any basis or evidence.   In March 2001 Swamy alleged that Rahul Gandhi and his mother’s family; the Mainos are agents of the Russian Intelligence agency KGB.

Dr.Swamy was in the forefront in the onslaught against the Jayalalitha government in 1991 accusing Jayalilathaa of being corrupt and ensured that she is prosecuted. It was based on Swamy’s complaint the ongoing Disproportionate assets case was slapped on Jayalilathaa which is haunting her even today.
When the BJP formed the government in 1998 for a brief period Dr.Swamy’s name was doing the rounds for the post of Finance Minister.  But Swamy had to eat humble pie after the RSS stiffly opposed his nomination.  But now life has come a full circle for this one man demolisher.

Sources tell Whispers in Tamil Nadu that the now Swamy has the full backing of RSS and a decision to merge Swamy’s Janata party with the BJP is on the cards.  But, the infighting among the top leaders in the BJP is likely to ruin Swamy from turning his dreams into reality. 

Insiders say Swamy’s recent inflammatory article stating Hindus are the ancestors of all Muslims and that Muslims should accept Hindus’ superiority and live in India as a secondary citizens… is nothing but a calculated move by Dr.Swamy to show that he is ready to toe the hardcore Hindutva line and also to resurface into the good books of RSS once again.

However, the lackadaisical decision of the Delhi police to register an FIR after a lapse of 3 months has given more fodder to Swamy’s cannon as he dares them to arrest. Swamy has not moved the court for anticipatory bail.   Sources say Swamy is very keen on getting arrested in this case, as it would raise his image and stakes in RSS that has a larger say in the affairs of the BJP.

It’s an open secret that Swamy has the ability to spell danger for both friends and foes. However over the years he has cleverly carved a niche to remain the Indian political arena. The BJP, too wants to share a pie in the Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption wave has made corruption as its core agenda.  Dr.Swamy’s induction in the party may yield a few votes.    

It is true that Swamy has become the darling of the educated upper class in India after the 2G Scam broke. But insiders say both the RSS and the BJP leadership is in the process of assessing weather Swamy’s induction into the party will be an asset or a liability...well one thing that needs to be noted is Subramaniam Swamy's Twitter status message... It says "I give as good as I get" ...!!!
