Subramanian Swamy threatens BJP to sack IT Cell Chief Amit Malviya

BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy warned the party to remove its information and technology cell head Amit Malviya by Thursday. Previously, he accused the latter of running a campaign against him using bogus tweets.

Swamy said eliminating Malviya is the “compromise proposal” he has made to party president J.P. Nadda. If he is not terminated, he said, it would mean the party is not willing to “defend me”.

He also said there is no party forum where he can seek the opinion of the staff and “hence I will have to defend myself”.

 

“The BJP IT cell has gone rogue. Some of its members are putting out fake ID tweets to make personal attacks on me,” Swamy tweeted. “If my angered followers make counter personal attacks I cannot be held responsible just as BJP cannot be held responsible for the rogue IT cell of the party.”

Swamy has been in conflict with his party’s stance on a number of issues, especially the economy. He had backed student protests against the Narendra Modi government’s decision to conduct JEE and NEET amid the COVID 19 pandemic.
