Lord Ganesha removes obstacles. I can say that a picture of Goddess Lakshmi on currency notes may improve the condition of Indian currency
Khandwa: Rajya Sabha MP and senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy said earlier he was in favour of printing the image of Goddess Lakshmi on Indian currency. According to Swamy, it could “improve the condition of the Indian currency”.
On Tuesday night Subramanian Swamy was speaking to reporters after addressing a lecture series titled ‘Swami Vivekananda Vyakhyanmala’ in Madhya Pradesh’s Khandwa district.
Answering to a question about the picture of Lord Ganesha printed on the Indonesian currency, Subramanian Swamy said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi can answer this question. I am in favour of this. Lord Ganesha removes obstacles. I can say that a picture of Goddess Lakshmi on currency notes may improve the condition of Indian currency. Nobody should feel bad about this.”
Subramanian Swamy said there was nothing objectionable in the Citizenship Amendment Act.
“Congress party and Mahatma Gandhi had requested about CAA. Ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had also requested in Parliament in 2003 and so we did it. Now they are not accepting it and saying that our government did injustice to Pakistan’s Muslims. What injustice was done? Pakistan’s Muslims don’t want to come to India, we can’t force them,” Subramanian Swamy said.
Earlier, while addressing the lectures, Swamy said DNA of Muslims and Hindus is the same as that of Brahmins and Dalits.
Swamy claimed the BJP would soon introduce the Uniform Civil Code (UCC), on that he said I had been repeatedly directed by the supreme court in the past 70 years and by Article 44 of the Constitution.
Expressing concerns over the rising population, Subramanian Swamy said India would leave China behind by 2025 as the most populous country.
