Here’s why Nobel laureate Amartya Sen rejects Mamata Banerjee’s Banga Vibhushan award

Nobel laureate economist Amartya Sen is not accepting the Banga Vibhushan award given by the West Bengal government. Partha Chatterjee through his family said that he has received many awards. Amartya Sen said, “This time someone new should be given that honor.” According to sources, Amartya Sen’s name was not included in the final list of awardees after hearing his opinion.

Partha Chatterjee Effect

Incidentally, the Trinamool is a bit ‘uncomfortable’ about Partha Chatterjee when news of Amartya’s rejection of the Banga Vibhushan award surfaced. As a result, a section of the opposition camp (mainly the CPM) started saying that Amartya took this decision in protest against the Parth incident. However, according to sources, Amartya had made up his mind even before the incident of Parth’s arrest. This information was also given to the state government.

On Monday, the state government was to confer the Banga Vibhushan to two Nobel laureate economists – Amartya Sen and Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee – along with other dignitaries. According to a source, Abhijit Banerjee is currently in France. Therefore, he too will not be able to participate in this program.

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will present the Bang Bhushan and Bang Vibhushan awards to eminent persons of various fields at Nazrul Manch on Monday afternoon. East Bengal, Mohun Bagan and Mohammedan Sporting Club will also be honored with the Banga Vibhushan Samman for their special contribution to Indian football. SSKM Super Specialty Hospital will also be accorded the same respect as an institution.

Incidentally, CPM leader Sujan Chakraborty had called upon the dignitaries to decline the Banga Vibhushan and Banga Bhushan Samman in the wake of the ED’s arrest by the ED in Parth on charges of corruption in the recruitment of teachers and recovery of more than that. 21 crores Rs. A section of the CPM claims that Amartya did not agree to accept the honor by answering that call. However, according to sources, earlier Amartya had informed about his decision.
