Goddess Lakshmi in the notes can improve the condition of the rupee: Subramanian Swamy

KHANDWA (MP): BJP Leader and Rajya Sabha MP Swamy Subramanian He said he was in favor of inscribing the image of Goddess Lakshmi on the bills that could improve the condition of the Indian currency.

Swamy spoke to reporters Tuesday night after addressing a series of lectures entitled 'Swami Vivekananda Vyakhyanmala' in the Khandwa district of Madhya Pradesh.

In response to a question about the image of Lord Ganesha printed on the Indonesian currency, Swamy said: Prime Minister Narendra Modi can answer this question. I am in favor (of this). Lord Ganesha removes obstacles. I'd rather say that an image of Goddess Lakshmi (on the bills) can improve the condition of the Indian currency. No one should feel bad about this.

Swamy said there was nothing objectionable in the Citizenship Law (Amendment).

Congress and Mahatma Gandhi had requested this (CAA). Manmohan Singh He had also applied in Parliament in 2003. We did it. Now they don't accept it by saying that we did injustice to the Muslims of Pakistan. What injustice was done? Muslims in Pakistan don't want to come, we can't force them, said Swamy.

Earlier, while delivering the lectures, Swamy said that the DNA of Muslims and Hindus is the same as that of the Brahmins and the Dalits.

Swamy said the BJP would soon introduce the Uniform Civil Code (UCC), which he said had been repeatedly directed by the supreme court in the last 70 years and by article 44 of the Constitution.

Swamy expressed concern about the population increase and said that India would leave China by 2025 as the most populous nation.
