The ruling BJP has slammed former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan for accompanying Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jaipur. On Wednesday, BJP spokesperson Amit Malviya stated that Rajan was a Congress appointee. Malviya tweeted that the former RBI governor “fancies” himself as the new Manmohan Singh.

Mr Malviya tweeted, “Just that his commentary on India’s economy should be discarded with disdain. It is coloured.” Moreover, he called Raghuram Rajan’s remarks on the Indian economy “opportunistic.”

Here’s the tweet by Amit Malviya on Raghuram Rajan:


BJP national general secretary CT Ravi added to the attack by saying that Raghuram Rajan had attended Rahul’s yatra to “pay his debt” to the “dynasty” that made him governor. CT Ravi further tweeted, “RaghuRam Rajan was glorified as a great economist by the Liberals. But he turns out to be just another jewel in the court of the Fake Gandhis.”


What is the Bharat Jodo Yatra?

The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began in south India and will end on Republic Day next year in Kashmir, has seen various leaders walk down with Rahul Gandhi to demonstrate their support for the grand old party. The Congress party released a video of Rajan and Rahul strolling in Bhadoti, Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan.

What did Congress tweet?

The Congress tweeted, “#BharatJodoYatra Former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan walks with Rahul Gandhi. The increasing number of people standing up to unite the country against hatred shows hum honge kamiyab (we’ll be successful).”


Why is Raghuram Rajan criticized?

Raghuram Rajan was the Reserve Bank of India’s 23rd governor, serving from September 2013 to September 2016. He frequently spoke out against the Modi government’s economic and social policies. He has argued that strengthening liberal democracy and its institutions is critical to achieving economic progress in India. He harshly criticized the Modi government’s demonetization program and blamed it for the resulting economic slump.

But is Raghuram Rajan poised to be the next Manmohan Singh?

Manmohan Singh was the RBI governor as well and later became the Prime Minister after he was chosen by the Congress party to lead the country. Although he had a moderately successful career as a prime minister, his tenure was tainted by several scams.

At present, Raghuram Rajan does not have any aspirations to join politics and most likely not enter politics. However, he may join Congress if offered a lucrative position or a deal that he can accept. Moreover, he will not be the next Manmohan Singh as he is highly outspoken (compared to the soft-spoken Manmohan Singh) and is extremely strong-headed. Calling him the next Manmohan Singh is incredibly wrong as both personalities are entirely different and have their strengths and flaws, which make them great.
