NEW DELHI: BJP MP Subramanian Swamy, who had invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi's disapproval for his "craving for publicity", today suggested that it is publicity which "relentlessly seeks" him as he wrote about hordes of media persons waiting outside his residence.          

He also said that he stands by Modi as he admires his spine but took a dig at journalists planting "deliberately false stories" to provoke him. "New problem: when publicity relentlessly seeks a politician. 30 OVs outside the house, 200 missed calls from channels and paparazzis?" he tweeted.        

"Presstitutes are daily planting deliberately false stories hoping I will be provoked to reply. Ha! They have a hope!," he said in another tweet. "I have said before and saying now: Come hell or high water I stand by Modi. I admire his spine. No foreign power can buckle him," he added.

The Rajya Sabha member, who consistently attacked RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan and then took potshots at Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, has been lying low after the BJP leadership indicated its unhappiness and Modi voiced disapproval of his conduct.
