Subramanian Swamy’s daring act during Emergency
Later in June 1975 when Indira Gandhi imposed the emergency the Swamy was few among those leaders who were not been able to get caught by the government agencies despite being best of their efforts.

In the 19 year long maha dasha of 6th and 7th lord Saturn Swamy become enemy with many famous political personality of the country and also held some very important position in the government offices in early 1990’s. Swamy was in good terms with Rajiv Gandhi and hailed him as the ‘only Hindu Neta’ in Congress. According to Swamy it was only Rajiv Gandhi and P.V. Narsimha Rao in the Congress who truly wanted from their heart that Ram Mandi should be constructed at Ayodhya. Swamy is known as a relentless critique of Nehru-Gandhi family.

Subramanian Swamy’s role in the fall of Vajpayee government in 1998
Subramanian Swamy had strained relationship with Atal Bihari Vajpayee since the days of Janata Party government in 1977. As per Swamy it was Vajpayee who stopped Morarji Desai from giving cabinet birth to him in the Janata Party government. Swamy also attack Vajpayee for giving a letter of apology to Indira Gandhi to come out of the prison on parole during emergency. Swamy claimed in his autobiography ” Though Charan Singh got a bad name for pulling down the Morarji Desai government but the real culprit were Vajpayee and Ramakrishna Hedge…….”.
Swamy took the revenge of it from Vajpayee when he engineered the fall of the first BJP led NDA government in 1998 that lasted for 13 days only. Swamy arranged a meeting of J Jayalalithaa and Sonia Gandhi to pursue the earlier for not supporting the NDA. It was the Vimshottari dasha of Saturn-Rahu in the horoscope of Subramanian Swamy. Notice here the bad aspect of Saturn in Rashi, Navamsha and Dashamsha charts. This astrologically explain the political conspiracy engineer by Swamy cleverly. But it cost him a lot as later in year 1999 the BJP won the general elections can came back into the power.
Vajpayee and later Lal Krishna Advani prevented Swamy from joining the BJP until August 2013 when Modi became the prime ministerial candidate for the party. It was Modi who took Swamy into the BJP though he did not gave him a berth in the cabinet which is quite understood.

But before that he may have to deal with some health issues, injuries and controversies as his Mercury-Saturn period shows.
