Had govt reacted sooner, he could have stayed on as RBI Governor: Father on Raghuram Rajanâ€™s exit
BJPâ€™s Subramanian Swamy had levelled allegations against Rajan including of sending confidential and sensitive financial information around the world and asked the PM Modi to sack him immediately.
THE father of Raghuram Rajan and retired senior bureaucrat R Govindarajan has said that Rajan may have stayed on as RBI Governor if the government had reacted promptly when the attacks on him started.
Speaking to The Indian Express at their home in Adyar, Chennai, Govindarajan and his wife Mythili expressed pain at the attacks on him. â€œI feel if the government had responded promptly when the attacks started, possibly he wouldnâ€™t have come to this decision,â€ Govindarajan, who retired as a senior Intelligence officer, said.
In an interview with Times Now on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had broken his silence on the attacks on Rajan that began almost two months ago, saying â€œsuch things are inappropriateâ€. He also said, â€œRaghuram Rajanâ€™s patriotism is no less than oursâ€¦ Those who speak such language are doing great injustice to him.â€
