Swamy is neither a minister nor an elected lawmaker currently but the six-time parliamentarian has established himself in the public eye as an anti-corruption crusader and an ardent advocate of Hindu nationalism. With over four million followers on Twitter and an ever-burgeoning list of speaking appointments at home and abroad, the Rajya Sabha MP is the second most popular BJP leader after Modi.
Swamy often invokes his academic credentials, the fact that he used to teach economics at Harvard University and the way he stood up to then prime minister Indira Gandhi during the Emergency.
Swamy has his hands full at the moment on both political and legal fronts. He continues to fine tune the Hindutva strategy with leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, while litigating anti-corruption cases such as the National Herald case against the Gandhi family, and the Aircel Maxis case in which he has ensnared former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his son Karti Chidambaram.
In his Latest Speech, Swamy Discussed the policies of the government and he talked about the Demonetisation.
