Robert Vadra today took a dig at Subramanian Swamy for his “derogatory” remarks about waiters and termed them “classist”, prompting the BJP MP to retort that he should concentrate on “staying out of jail” instead of making political comments.

Vadra, who is Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law, earlier in the day attacked Swamy over his apparent swipe at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in which he had said ministers who wear a coat and tie look like waiters and must be instructed to wear Indian clothes.

In a Facebook post, Vadra said, “Undermining waiters who work hard for a living; making condescending and derogatory remarks about them is deplorable and classist”.

Swamy soon hit back.

“Mr Vadra should concentrate on staying out of jail instead of making political comments,” he told reporters.

Asked about the reported unhappiness of the BJP leadership over his consistent tirade against Jaitley and his ministry’s officials, he said, “That is what your press is saying. I don’t know.”
