Jagdish Bhagwati to address Indian Parliament

There is a news in BS which says:

  • Renowned economist Jagdish Natwarlal Bhagwati will address a joint session of Parliament on December 2, the second such address after US President Barack Obama. Bhagwati, professor of economics and law at Columbia University, will talk about “Indian reforms: Yesterday and today” in the third Prof. Hiren Mukerjee Memorial Annual Parliamentary Lecture.
  • Vice-President and Chairman of Rajya Sabha Hamid Ansari will preside over the function and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will be the chief guest. Singh will also speak a few words on the occasion before Bhagwati takes the podium.
  • For Manmohan Singh, currently facing the heat of the Opposition on corruption issues, the evening of December 2 is going to be a happy reunion too — for Singh and Bhagwati were classmates at Cambridge in the 1950s.
