A GROUP of 12 MPs will undergo a leadership programme from October 10 at Yale University, which has produced several statesmen, including four of the last six US presidents.

The participating MPs include Chandan Mitra, Jay Panda, Shahid Siddiqui, Raashid Alvi, Robert Kharshiing of Rajya Sabha and Naveen Jindal, Deepender Singh Hooda, Dharmendra Pradhan and Dushyant Singh of Lok Sabha.

George Joseph, Yale University’s assistant secretary for international affairs, said: “The MPs will interact with some of the leading thinkers in their fields, and also explore policy considerations in off-the-record discussions.”

Jay Panda said, “It will be refreshing to be in the higher echelons of American academia again.” An enthusiastic Chandan Mitra said that from Yale, the parliamentarians will proceed to Washington to meet senior US State Department officials and business leaders.A GROUP of 12 MPs will undergo a leadership programme from October 10 at Yale University, which has produced several statesmen, including four of the last six US presidents.
