FM denounces attacks on Rajan

By The Assam Tribune

TOKYO, May 30 - Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today denounced any attack on Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan and said the debate should be about the issues and policies, and not about the personalities.

Jaitley, however, declined to comment on whether Rajan�s term would be extended after his current three-year tenure ends this September. Rajan has been facing a continuous attack by BJP MP Subramanian Swamy and by some other sections, who have demanded termination of his service or at least denial of any extension while alleging that the RBI Governor has failed to lower interest rates and boost the economy.

�I do not approve of any of these comments being made by anyone as far as the personality is concerned, because the RBI and its Governor is an important institution in Indian economy,� Jaitley told PTI in an interview here.
