Subramanian Swamy (born 15 September 1939 in Chennai, India sometimes spelt Subramaniam Swamy) is an Indian politician, academic and an economist. He is the . He also presently serves as chairman of the SCMS Board of Governors of the SCMS Group of Educational Institutions in Kerala.
Swamy has previously served as member of the Planning Commission of India and Cabinet Minister of India. He has written extensively on foreign affairs dealing largely with India-China, India-Pakistan and Indo-Israel relation and is also a published author.
In November 1978, Swamy was member of the Group of Eminent persons called to Geneva to prepare a report of the United Nations (UNCTAD) on Economic Co-operation between Developing countries (ECDC).Swamy simplified trade procedures and formulated a new export strategy which became the forerunner of trade reform adopted subsequently. In 1994, Swamy was appointed as Chairman of the Commission on Labour Standards and International Trade by then Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao. This was perhaps for the first time that a Opposition Party member was given a Cabinet rank post by the ruling party.
In country of thousands of politicians, Dr. Subramanian Swamy is really the lone warrior who is fighting the corruption with boldness and courage. It was him, who brought 2G Scam on to the surface. It was him, who didn't let Sonia Gandhi become PM, as according to the Indian law; she couldn't become. Interestingly, he still hasn't got any support from other leaders and Indian media.
Dr. Swamy is Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard University. He is also the professor there now. Presently, Dr. Swamy is the President of Janata Party. Very few people know that Subramanian Swamy, being the Minister of Commerce and Law of India, created the blueprint for economic reforms in India during the period 1990 to 1991 under Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar Singh which was later carried out in 1991 by Manmohan Singh, then Finance Minister under leadership of Prime Minister Narasimha Rao. Dr. Manmohan Singh also accepted it later.He became the first Indian on the reopening to visit Kailash Mansarovar in 1981. Due to his efforts, Kailash Mansarover was reopened for Indians.
Now, Dr. Swamy is fighting a dangerous battle against corrupt politicians. A. Raja had never been sent to Jail, if Subramanian Swamy wouldn't have revealed the 2G Scam. Now, he is firmly saying that P.Chidambaram would soon be in Jail as well. It has never happened in the history of India as big leaders were never sent to prison. But, Dr. Swamy made it possible.
He is also the only brave man in the country who dares to oppose Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. He has continuously said that Sonia Gandhi gets the biggest share of all the scams. He has also filed many cases against her, but he always told be generous by Indian Courts. He is the one who wrote letter to PM about the money earned by Sonia Gandh's sisters in the 2G. Dr. Swamy still believes that soon more big leaders would also be in the prison.In spite of all these efforts, he has never been highlighted by Indian media. Big media houses keep ignoring him. Digvijay Singh keeps getting publicity who always speaks rubbish, but Dr. Swamy is always ignored though he always comes with the facts. Indian media still doesn't seem to be patriotic.
Even the majority of Indians don't support him much as many Indians are lacking the love for their motherland. But, Dr. Subramanian Swamy will keep doing his good work for the country, and few people like us will always keep supporting 'The Brave Man'.
