He was speaking to a gathering of Indian National Overseas Congress members on Sept 24, 2015, at the Santoor Restaurant in Glen Oaks, New York. ‘It is the policy of Secularism the Congress party enunciated that kept India together since Independence and the recent happenings under the Modi administration is quite worrisome’ he added.
‘The planning commissions over the years provided a strong foundation for growth and the disbanding of the commission by the Modi Government is short-sighted’ said Dr. Mungekar who has served as a member of the Board.
