Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee visits his university JNU”

"Please be certain that millions of Indians are proud".

Pune: Union minister Piyush Goyal on Friday dubbed Nobel laureate economist Abhijit Banerjee as "Left-leaning", and said as his suggestion of basic income scheme was rejected by Indian voters, there was no need to "accept what he thinks". The party crashed in the polls.

"I congratulate Abhiit Banerjee for winning the Nobel Prize".

Banerjee further added, "Even if the idea was politically supported, it may not have been the best design scheme, maybe afterwards if the UPA had won, they would have had to adjust the scheme because there would be political and economical pressures to change the scheme. Your job is to improve it not to run a comedy circus", she said.

The BJP leaders' statements against Banerjee came after the Nobel laureate said that the Indian economy is on a shaky ground and the data now available does not hold any assurance for the country's economic revival anytime soon. But you all know about his thinking. His thinking is totally Left-leaning.

In an interview with CNN News18, this year's victor of Nobel prize in Economics Abhijit Banerjee shrugged off the responsibility of NYAY, claiming that it was not "necessarily a well-designed scheme". "He has heaped praises on the NYAY scheme but the people of India has totally rejected his thinking", Goyal told reporters here at a presser.

"I am not partisan in my economy thinking", he continued, pointing out he had worked with the Gujarat pollution board back when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was still a Chief Minister. I would have told them exactly, I would have been as willing.

Dr Banerjee's views over the years have not endeared him to the ruling party. "How fast we don't know, there is this dispute about data but I think fast", he said.
