BROTHERS AT ODDS
Montek Singh Ahluwalia has found himself isolated even within the Planning Commission on his controversial Rs 32 per day poverty line estimate. The Deputy Chairman summoned the very able sibling duo of Abhijit Sen and Pronob Sen to help him out of his quandary. Abhijit, a member of the Planning Commission is a well regarded economist and poverty expert, and Pronob a principal adviser at the Commission is a former chief statistician of India. To Ahluwalia’s disappointment, the brothers expressed their inability to dig him out of his self-created hole.
