    Six-time parliamentarian, Subramanian Swamy, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi will win 2019 elections on Hindutva, but the BJP government failed economically, reported Huffington Post.
    The 79-year-old politician, said, "Right now, I find the Ministry of Finance is blocking the prosecution of many Congress leaders. I have attacked some members of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). I have raised questions about people in the CBI. That part is weak."
    Hindutva has now heightened. My projection is that we will get majority again.
    The big takeaway: 
    The BJP is a cadre-based party. They don't care about Make in India—they want the Virat Hindustan concept.
    • The way that the present finance ministry is structured right now, it cannot deliver the goods.
    • A Hindu can never not be secular. Secularism has been taken to mean the dominance of English-educated people.
    • I think Modi generally wants to be acceptable to everybody. In my opinion that is self-defeating.
    • In our culture, if someone is identified as the man who is going to be the next prime minister, I think that is the end of him.
    • On economy
      • I'm telling you again that the economy is terrible and the ministry of finance people are clueless.
      • On becoming Finance Minister
        • Absolutely.
        • On Mohan Bhagwat
          • He wants the whole country to celebrate Hindutva.
          • On Modi becoming Prime Minister again?
            • I don't think there is any challenge to him. I don't see any such person.
            • On Congress president
              • Rahul Gandhi has not been able to emerge as a man of ideas. Ninety percent of his speech is just abuse, and it is all erratic.
              • Mayawati as prime minister?
                • If she becomes PM, it would be good for our sociological change.
                • She's too tough for that. She might want to become Vice-President. I mean if you offer it, she might accept, I don't know.
                • On finance minister
                  • Mr. Jaitley does not understand because he has never studied economics.
                  • There is a cartel today the controls the finance ministry, which is complicit with the corrupt in the previous dispensation.
                  • If you were finance minister?
                    • I would abolish income tax on the very first day. I would lower interest rates. I would raise the fixed deposit rate to 9%. I will get rid of GST.
                    • On Anil Ambani's Reliance Defence deal
                      • I've been saying to the Congress, if you have any evidence then why don't you file a case?
                      • And by the way, Rafale is a plane that nobody wants to buy. In fact, I had told Parrikar that why are you wasting time buying planes, buy the company.
                      • On finance secretary Hasmukh Adhia
                        • He's a con man. I've asked for sanction to prosecute him. If I don't get sanction, then, like in 2G, I will go to the Supreme Court and say give me sanction.
                        • On Ram Temple getting built?
                          • I think the building will start in the next few months.
