Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in press meet today took a jibe at Narendra Modi’s ‘hard work’ and ‘Harvard’ remark, in which Prime Minister had sought to criticise high profile economists and their penchant for downplaying or even blasting his government’s policies. He said, “PM ne Harvard (University) aur hard work ki baat ki, hum puchte hain, aapne hardly koi kaam kiya ho toh bata do. (PM Modi talked about Harvard and hardwork, I would like to ask him if he has hardly worked at all and if so he should mention it)”

Earlier in the month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched an attack on economists for criticizing the implementation of the demonetization move and said ‘hard work matters not Harvard’, he also stated that “The country has seen the difference between Harvard and hard-work after November 8”. He attacked the economists during his election rally in Deoria where he said, “While ‘Harvard University’s scholars’ economics’ remained confined within books, ‘hard work’ shows on the ground.” The remark can be seen as a veiled attack on Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen who is a Professor of Economics and Philosophy at Harvard University.

In the latest developments regarding UP Elections 2017, the campaigning for the 6th phase of elections has ended and the polls are set to take place on March 4 for the sixth phase. Elections for the seventh phase will take place on March 8 and the results for all the five states will be declared on March 11, 2017.
