Swamy takes on Jaitley again

 In an attack on Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy criticised those "giving me unasked for advice of discipline".

 
"People giving me unasked for advice of discipline and restraint don't realise that if I disregard discipline there would be a bloodbath," Swamy tweeted.
 
Although he did not name Jaitley, his tweet followed Jaitley's public admonition of Swamy after the latter called for the sacking of Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian.
 
Jaitley had said: "The party has said it doesn't share Swamy's view. I will also add one more fact from the point of view of discipline of Indian politicians... to what extent should we attack those, the discipline and constraint of whose offices prevent them from responding and this has happened more than once."
 
In another tweet, the BJP leader also urged the party leadership to ask ministers to wear traditional Indian clothes when they go abroad.
 
"BJP should direct our ministers to wear traditional and modernised Indian clothes while abroad. In coat and tie they look like waiters," he wrote.
