MeraNews Network, Ahmedabad: Come September and former Indian president Pranab Mukherjee will be reprising his role of a professor as he readies to teach management students of the prestigious Indian Institute of Management in Ahmedabad, lessons on Public Policy. It’s well-known fact that Mukherjee loves teaching and one of his jobs before his foray into full-fledged politics was that of an assistant professor of Political Science in Vidyanagar College of South 24 Parganas in West Bengal.

Pranab Mukherjee will be visiting IIMA as distinguished guest faculty to teach ‘Public Policy for Inclusive Development of India,’ a course offered to the students of the institute by professors Anil Gupta and Vijaya Sherry Chand under the aegis of JSW School of Public Policy. Mukherjee will be interacting with the students over six days on September 18-19, October 8-9 and November 16-17. Each day will consist of two sessions.

In his sessions, the former president and finance minister will be presenting the theory and practice of the Constitutional provisions for socio-economic inclusion. He will also focus on policy interventions for financial inclusion, and then articulate the policy and institutional agenda for strengthening transformation of India.

The students will be writing short reports on various public policy issues, which will be then presented to Mukherjee.
