    NEW DELHI - Eminent economist Amartya Sen said that despite being the fastest-growing economy the country has taken a "quantum jump in the wrong direction" since 2014.

    He also said that due to moving backwards, the country is now second worst in the region.

    "Things have gone pretty badly wrong... It has taken a quantum jump in the wrong direction since 2014. We are getting backwards in the fastest-growing economy," Mr Sen said.

    Twenty years ago, he added, of the six countries in this region -- India , Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan, Indiawas the second best after Sri Lanka. "Now, it is the second worst. Pakistan has managed to shield us from being the worst."

    The Nobel laureate was speaking in Delhi at the launch of 'Bharat Aur Uske Virodhabhas', the Hindi edition of his book 'An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradiction' that he co-authored with development economist Jean Dreze.

    The economist said that the government has also deflected from issues of inequalities, the caste system and the schedules tribes have been kept out.

    There were a whole group of people, those who clean lavatories or sewage with their hands, he said, whose demands and needs has been neglected.

    While highlighting the recent report of a Dalit youth who was whipped for asking a salary hike from the manager of a petrol pump in Madhya Pradesh, he said they (dalit) are going around without any kind of certainty about their next meal, healthcare or education.

    Taking a dig at the BJP-led government, he added that during freedom struggle it was difficult to see that a political battle could be won by playing up the Hindu identity, but that has changed now.

    "But, that has happened. Which is why, at this time, the whole issue of Opposition unity is so important," the 84-year-old economist said.

    "It is not a battle of one entity against the other (or) Mr Modi against Mr Rahul Gandhi, it is an issue of what India is," Mr Sen added

    Also speaking at the event, development economist and activist Jean Dreze termed the soon-to-be launched Ayushmann Bharat health scheme a "hoax" as it was actually not big as it was being claimed to be.

    "The budget (for the scheme) for this year is 2,000 crore. Even if it is spent, it's less than 20 rupees per person," he said.

    It is projected as health insurance for 50 crore people, but it is virtually nothing, said Mr Dreze, who helped draft the first version of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGA).

    He was a great admirer of the economic model of Venezuela, until everything went to shit. Now he hides his face when being asked about what went wrong there. I stopped taking these communist socialists seriously after living for 20 years in West Bengal.

    well, it is very easy to solve for Modians.. Just label Amartya Sen an anti-national and strip his nationality or just declare a head money of indian Rs 1 million and someone will kill or simply follow the hindutva tradition of lynching and kill him...how dare he speak against modi..

    Yeah, genius but you failed to explain "why?" you old fart. I was hoping to read some analysis from Sen, not the political bull crap.

    Many of you also consider our country a "failed state", and despite that you have to compare yourself to us to prove a point. Wah! What logic madum ji. :lol:

    He still holds Indian Passport.

    I agree, his dislike of Modi is not unknown. But he has a point, why in basic health matrix we are not able to progress
