PM Modi did favour to Abhijit Banerjee: BJP after Rahul says ‘Modinomics’ destroying country’s economy

New Delhi, Oct 15: Reacting to former Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s criticism against Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the faulty economic policies, Amit Malviya said despite knowing that Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee has been a critic of Modi government economic policies, PM Modi is doing a favour by congratulating.

It is strange to know that when a learned person is rewarded by the world, the Indian ruling party is disturbed if the person in question is the critic of the government.

Congratulating Indian-American economist Abhijit Banerjee for winning the Economics Nobel prize, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked Narendra Modi government and said “Modinomics” was destroying the country’s economy.

“Here is PM Modi congratulating Abhijit Banerjee without any ifs and buts despite knowing that he has been a critic. And Rahul Gandhi is not only politicizing Abhijit’s Nobel prize, but also using it to attack PM Modi. I know it is tough but will Rahul ever learn to be graceful?” BJP’s Amit Malviya wrote on Twitter.

Indian-origin MIT professor Abhijit Banerjee, his wife and one-time Ph.D student Esther Duflo, and Harvard professor Michael Kremer have been awarded the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economics for their work which has “dramatically improved our ability to fight poverty in practice,” it was announced on Monday.

Soon after Mr Banerjee won the coveted honour, Gandhi said the economist had helped conceptualise Nyay, a minimum income guarantee scheme that was promised by the Congress in the national election.”Abhijit helped conceptualise NYAY that had the power to destroy poverty and boost the Indian economy.

Instead we now have Modinomics, that’s destroying the economy and boosting poverty” Gandhi tweeted.

PM Modi congratulated the economist for winning the Nobel prize and said that he made notable contributions in the field of poverty alleviation. “Congratulations to Abhijit Banerjee on being conferred the 2019 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. He has made notable contributions in the field of poverty alleviation,” PM Modi tweeted.
