“It is also difficult to comprehend how members of the Kasturirangan Committee gave their acquiescence to the sweeping powers of the RSA and RSAAC even on simple academic considerations… Would they have assented to a proposal putting President Donald Trump in charge of all education in the United States? But that is essentially what they are recommending for India.”
