“Am I looking sad? I have been travelling all along. I have been to Kolkata yesterday and now here on invitation of a university,” Swamy told reporters replying a question on whether his talents are under-utilised by the Modi government.
Terming the craving for posts as a “British mindset”, Swamy said …”Indian Brahmins and learned persons never had any posts, yet Rajas listened to them. If I say anything on any matter, the Raja listens to me. I am in that good position today.
“If made a minister, I will be confined to one ministry.Now, I can talk on entire ministries. Don’t feel sad for me….”, Swamy said.
Clarifying the reason behind his skipping the oath-taking ceremony in Delhi, Swamy said: “I was invited to witness the oath taking ceremony and told to cancel my appointment in Odisha. However, I told them that I have already committed to the university. Therefore, I am here.”
