In this special edition of 'We The People', Nobel laureate Amartya Sen warns against a "pattern" in RSS members being appointed to key educational and cultural institutions. He also counters arguments that people like him didn't speak up when political interference in educational institutions was of a different ideology. He also criticises the government's development model, saying more tax revenue to states did not justify Centre's cuts in social spending and that India can't become an "industrial giant" with "unhealthy and uneducated labour force". He also termed Congress leaders "tremendously" responsible for the 1984 riots, and clarifies that he never said that 1984 and 2002 riots were not comparable.
