Nobel laureate Venki refused to meet Modi?


Bharat Yagnik (TNN)

AHMEDABAD: One person who was 'missing' during the two-day visit of Nobel laureate Venkatraman 'Venki' Ramakrishnan to Vadodara, the city of his alma mater, was CM Narendra Modi.


Sources told TOI that efforts had been made to get Venki to meet Modi in Gandhinagar or Vadodara, but he is said to have refused apparently because of the CM's tarnished image due to the 2002 riots.

According to sources, "Efforts had been made by the state education department and the chief minister's office to arrange a meeting between the two, for 30 minutes or so, but it did not materialize because Venki did not agree."
