In Karan Thapar's Last Word on CNN-IBN, the Janta Party president, was asked why his charges against Rahul and Sonia Gandhi were not as big front-page news as Arvind Kejriwal's charges against Robert Vadra, or Aaj Tak's charges against Salman Khurshid, and if this was because the press was biased against him:

from around 11:48 onwards:

Subramanian Swamy: The press is not biased against me but the press is amenable to pressure and since I have many members of my family who are in the press, I get an inside view of how that pressure works - whether it works through an SMS or a direct telephone phone call...

Karan Thapar: Can you be explicit? Pressure from whom?

Subramanian Swamy: Pressure from people in authority.

Karan Thapar: The Congress party or the Gandhis directly?

Subramanian Swamy: Well, of course the Gandhis. Definitely they've their hatchet men who perform that role...

Karan Thapar: Can I interrupt and ask as to how come that pressure didn't apply when Vadra got exposed as that was front page news repeatedly for a long time.

Subramanian Swamy: Well, I can say that there is an explanation for that. You want to hear that explanation?

Karan Thapar: Very quickly, yes.

Subramanian Swamy: Well, I think Mr Vadra is not a very popular man in the Gandhi family... and there is... I know... you'd say I am getting into personal matters, but there is a separation process going on...and there is a division of property which has become very messy...

Karan Thapar: You are being Machiavellian. Are you suggesting that the Gandhis themselves saw it in their interest to allow stories about Vadra to hit the front pages?

Subramanian Swamy :
That's right, that's right...That's what I am saying...

If further proof was needed of Swamy being unhinged, here it is!

Not as unhinged as when people from RoP which recommends jihad say they stand for peace

First Family allowed the stories....

An uncomfortable "Gijajee" can always be divorced! Like Feroze was thrown out of JN's house...

Subramanian Swami,for all his brilliance is totally wrong in stating that Gandhis themselves are behind Vadra getting exposed.Can he not see that Sonia has arranged for Vadra being treated as an VIP with no security check at airports.Such massive fraud by Vadra cannot be done witut the knowledge of his wife Priyanka,who is so close to her mother.In any case can a brass vessel maker family fellow indulge in all these things without the COngress party's connivance and the party is just a pocket borough of Sonia Gandhi.
