Pro-nationalist thinker S Gurumurthy appointed as part-time RBI director
A staunch advocate of Swadeshi economics, Gurumurthy is known for his nationalistic views on various issues including demonetization
Narendra Modi-government has appointed Swaminathan Gurumurthy and Satish Marathe as part-time directors on the board of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), indeed, a move that would please the Swadeshi group in Sangh Parivar.
Gurumurthy, a chartered accountant by profession, has been a staunch advocate of Swadeshi economics, known for supporting Narendra Modi’s crucial reforms including demonetization.
For him, the Swadeshi philosophy is contrary to the idea of protectionism
Gurumurthy is also the co-convenor of Swadeshi Jagaran Manch, an organisation affiliated to the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh), which has been promoting national self-reliance since its inception in 1991.
“Story of my appointment as director RBI. This is the first directorship ever. Never accepted any private or PSU directorship. Not even audit of PSUs or Pvt cos. Wanted to be free to speak. But when pressure built up I am needed to do something in public interest I had to accept,” Gurumurthy tweeted.

One of the most influential figures in the Sangh, Gurumurthy has succeeded in projecting ‘Swadeshi’ ideology as an ideal platform for India to take her growth to next level.
For him, the Swadeshi philosophy is contrary to the idea of protectionism.
He belongs to the league of Hindutva idelogues who think that India has to bank on development models that will work for India instead of importing the economic ideas from the West.
Sathish Marathe, founder of Sahakar Bharati, has also got entry into the RBI board along with Gurumurthy.
Marathe has been associated with the cooperative movement in the country as the head of Sahakar Bharati, an organisation functioning under the aegis of the RSS.
