Piyush Goyal Calls Abhijit Banerjee, 2019 Economics Nobel Winner, Left-Leaning
Goyal made the remarks at a media briefing in Pune.
"I congratulate Abhijit Banerjee for winning the Nobel prize. You all know that his thinking is totally Left-leaning," Goyal said. "Banerjee supported NYAY (poverty alleviation scheme of the Congress) and people of India rejected his ideology.”
Banerjee recently said the Indian economy is on a shaky ground, adding data currently available does not hold any assurance for the country's economic revival anytime soon.
