The Union minister, Mr. Piyush Goyal, has dubbed Indian-American economist, Dr. Abhijit Banerjee, who won the 2019 Nobel for Economics, as Left-leaning. He made the remarks at a media briefing.
'I congratulate Abhijit Banerjee for winning the Nobel prize. You all know that his thinking is totally Left-leaning,' Mr. Goyal said.
'Banerjee supported ‘Nyay’ (poverty alleviation scheme of Congress) and people of India rejected his ideology,' the BJP leader said.
