SummaryChidambaram says Narendra Modi's Gujarat rule has raised human misery on massive scale.

they are 41.3 per cent, whereas 32.5 per cent in Maharashtra, Chidambaram said.

"So if you combine compassion for poor with growth, then the scenario changes," he said, adding, "I am not here to politicise, so won't say further."

"I am passionate about growth..., but I must remind you that the passion for growth must be combined with compassion for the poor," he said.

"I think the Bhagwati model will never be complete unless complemented with Sen's model," he said.
