BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, who has been critical of the approach of controlling inflation at the cost of economic growth, on Friday said that only a person with "nasty mission" to undo India would hold a different view.

Swamy had on Wednesday attacked "Lutyen's journalists" for not taking note of Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz's comments as well as the report of the US State Department that had said India's growth is overstated.

Swamy, a vocal critic of RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan's policy stance of not lowering interest rate in order to control inflation, took to Twitter to say he has taught economics to Americans for over 50 years.

Replying to a follower's tweet on his comments on Stiglitz's statement, the Rajya Sabha MP tweeted:

PT in his tweet refers to 'Patriotic Tweeple'.
