Former Sonia’s man Jean Dreze holds meeting without permission despite Model Code of Conduct, released after being detained

Jean Dreze was a member of the National Advisory Council (NAC) during the UPA era. Dreze is presently an honorary professor at the Delhi School of Economics and a visiting professor at the Ranchi University. He previously taught at the London School of Economics.

‘Eminent’ Economist and social activist Jean Dreze was released after being detained along with two other Right to Food activists by Jharkhand Police at Garhwa district. The three were arrested for holding a meeting at a public place without permission. The three activists were taken to Vishnupura police station.

According to the Police Jean was holding a meeting without permission and he had not been arrested. Since model of conduct is in place in wake of upcoming Lok Sabha elections, one is expected to take prior permissions from local administration for public meetings.

Jean is reported to have said, “Nothing serious in the matter. If they get a call, they may allow the meeting to proceed.”

Dreze was a member of the National Advisory Council (NAC) during the UPA era. Dreze is presently an honorary professor at the Delhi School of Economics and a visiting professor at the Ranchi University. He previously taught at the London School of Economics.

Meanwhile, ‘Eminent intellectuals’ are outraged that their comrade was detained by the Police for allegedly violating a law.

It betrays the sentiment that most ‘intellectuals’ harbour where they feel they are above the law and believe that routine laws, which apply to every mere mortal, should not apply to them. Further, Prashant Bhushan, whose relationship with the truth is tenuous at best, appears to be unaware that the Police has arrested people who were accused of being involved in the Gurugram incident, which was not borne out of any communal reasons.

Dreze and his friends were released by the Jharkhand Police after furnishing personal bonds.
