The Prime Minister was kind enough to give me quite a lot of time and to talk a lot about his way of thinking about India which was quite unique, ”he said.

The Nobel laureate, when asked about his meeting in wake of his strong statements on the Indian economy, told reporters: "Prime Minister started by cracking a joke about how the media is trying to trap me into saying anti-Modi things. He has been watching TV, he has been watching you guys, he knows what you are trying to do."

However, after winning the prize, Banerjee had said the Indian economy was “doing very badly”. He has also been a critic of the Modi government’s decisions such as demonetisation and GST which were implemented in the name of economic reforms. He had also helped the Congress in formulating its NYAY scheme.
