Amartya Sen set to become chief patron for Presidency College
Mamata Bannerjee has proposed that Nobel winner Amartya Sen be made the chief patron of the prestigious Presidency College in Kolkata.

WEST BENGAL Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said the Nobel laureate economist Amartya Sen will be appointed chief patron of the prestigious University Presidency College. Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s great grandson Suagato Bose will be the chairman of the mentor group.

As Banerjee said today that they will not elect members as she doesn’t want the institute to be a party-based system but wants it to be democracy based, and the mentor group would also be chosen by the two heads, i.e. Amartya Sen and Sugato Bose.

The University, famous for its impressive alumni has many famous names such as the college Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore, Swami Vivekananda social reformer, freedom fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, filmmaker Satyajit Ray, the Marxist leader Jyoti Basu, the economist Amartya Sen, and scientific studies have Satyendra Nath Bose.
Mamata Bannerjee has been on declaration spree since she took over the throne of Bengal. This current announcement is a part of the same package. Critics will feel that she is playing to the gallery but there is no denying the fact that at the moment she is playing it well, and the audience is enjoying.
