The hallmark of the Tamil Nadu model is the human capital and a harmonious society, said Tamil Nadu Finance Minister P Thiaga Rajan at the TNIE ThinkEdu Conclave, on the topic ‘The Tamil Nadu Model: Lessons for India’, chaired by author and analyst Shankkar Aiyar. Commenting on the ‘Revdi culture debate,’ he said that the first question that comes up is who decides what is populist. “Some of the freebies will be accretive. Some will have mixed outcomes - they will add some value and also create inflation/some other problems. So these things need to be thought of carefully,” he said.
