New Delhi. BJP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy has said he was in favor of inscribing the image of Goddess Lakshmi on banknotes which could “improve the condition of the Indian currency”.
Swamy did not stop at that and suggested that there should be Sachin photos inscribed on Petrol tankers so that petrol prices don’t increase rapidly after reaching 70. Sachin was known for his slowdown in the strike rate after reaching 70 or more closer to a century. He used to take his time to reach the three figure mark and many times got out in the nervous nineties.
The government which was looking for solutions to keep the petrol prices in check will implement Swamy’s suggestions as soon as possible so that the economy is in good shape before the budget. Sachin was overwhelmed by the suggestion and has vowed that he will not charge a royalty for the same as he wants to do everything possible that will benefit the Indians.
Swamy will soon meet Nirmala Sitharaman and Ravi Shankar Prasad to explain to them the logic of his suggestions so that they can convey the same to the media in press briefings.
