Economist Amartya Sen has been misleading the people and has not received any Nobel Prize and will never move court challenging our notice. He clearly knows the fact, Visva-Bharati University (VBU) vice-chancellor professor Bidyut Chakraborty said today, triggering fresh controversy.
The estate department of the VBU has already served a notice to the Nobel laureate at his house in Pratichi and has urged him to return back 13 decimal of land and has also proposed a joint inspection and survey. Bharat Ratna Amartya Sen, who is now staying at Santiniketan said that his advocate will reply to this notice. “My grandfather used to stay in the house of VC, where he is residing now and this house belonged to my father and we are staying here.
How can the central varsity raise such issues after many decades? If I wish I can also visit his house and tell him that my grandfather Khisiti Mohan Sen used to stay there,” he added. The students of VBU also met the Nobel laureate and briefed him about the present education scenario of the central varsity. Professor Sen wanted to know from them how situations can be improved. Meanwhile, the VC, professor Bidyut Chakraborty further alleged that Amartya Sen has never received any Nobel Prize and the original prize list by Alfred Nobel did not mention the subject economics. Instead, it was given by the Sweden Central Bank and does not belong to the original list of five subjects, the VC of VBU claimed.
“The name of the prize is the Bank of Sweden Economic Prize in Memory of Alfred Nobel,” professor Chakraborty claimed. “Amartya Sen’s name is in the website of the Nobel Prize Committee of Sweden and he is globally invited and recognised as a Nobel laureate since long time and how can a person stoop so low,” claimed ashramite Supriyo Tagore.
The welfare economist further added that he knows that few people from Delhi never liked him. The Nobel laureate has recently claimed that chief minister Mamata Banerjee is a fit candidate for the PM post, after which BJP leaders have been attacking him. The West Bengal CM has also been so far on the side of the first Nobel laureate in economics of the country on his alleged land dispute issue.
