Back to the basics in Kolkata

At the Presidency College in Kolkata

Left leaning students attacked Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia with eggs and tomatoes to protest the Centre’s “failure” to check price rise, but the edible missiles missed him.

According to an eyewitness account, some students, owing allegiance to CPI(M)’s student wing SFI, waved black flags and shouted “Montek go back” before hurling eggs and tomatoes at Mr. Ahluwalia as he was entering the Presidency College here to inaugurate a national seminar on economics.
