Ban western clothes on ministers: Subramanian Swamy

BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday wanted his party  to ban western clothes for its ministers, asserting that they are a part of "foreign imposed slavishness" and are not "Indian climate friendly".

Swamy, who is a nominated member of the Rajya Sabha, took to Twitter on ways to improve and enforce party discipline in the BJP.

"Western dress is a foreign imposed slavishness. BJP should make it of party discipline for ministers to wear Indian climate friendly clothes," he tweeted.

In another tweet, Swamy cited Article 49 of the Indian Constitution to suggest a ban on alcoholic drinks.

He asked the BJP to make liquor ban a "part of party discipline".

He said, "Article 49 of Constitution directs alcohol drinks be banned. While I am not for penal action, BJP should make as part of party discipline."

A day before this, he had tweeted complaining that NDA ministers had not attended the celebration of  Madan Mohan Malviya's birthday in the central hall of Parliament.

In another tweet, he had said, "India is still slave to British imperialist imposition".

Last year, Swamy had remarked that Indian ministers clad in western suits looked like waiters.

Six days ago, Swamy had left the government red-faced as it sought to defend itself for the 2G spectrum verdict by asserting it had no role in picking prosecutors or directing their work.

The verdict had cleared former telecom minister A Raja and DMK MP Kanimozhi of all charges.

Swamy virtually blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for ignoring his warnings about law officers who were not serious about fighting corruption.
