In the field of economics, this year’s Nobel Prize winner Abhijit Banerjee met PM Narendra Modi. PM Modi said that he had a wonderful meeting with Abhijit Banerjee. This meeting is considered to be important because since the Abhijit Banerjee received the Nobel Prize, there is a debate between the ruling party and the opposition. Union Minister Piyush Goyal said in this regard last Friday, “Abhijeet Banerjee has won the Nobel Prize, I congratulate him. But you all know that his thinking is completely leftist. He made a justice plan, but the country People rejected his thinking.
Abhijit Banerjee then defended himself in an interview given to a news channel and said, “My economic thinking is not for any particular aspect”. On this, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called some people involved in the Narendra Modi government as ‘bigoted’. Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Dear Banerjee, these fanatic people are blind in hatred. They don’t know what professional skill is. Even if you try for a decade, you won’t be able to explain it to them.
PM Modi congratulated Abhijit Banerjee for his efforts.
It is noteworthy that Abhijit Banerjee and his wife Esther Duflo have been announced to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics for the year 2019. He will receive the award jointly with his wife Esther Duflo and America’s Michael Kramer.
