CCS DashboardChintan on ‘Creating a Liberal Political Movement in India’, 1 August 2014, 2-3.30pm


CCS is hosting Sanjeev Sabhlok on 1 August 2014 to discuss the need and potential for creating a liberal political movement in India.

Sanjeev is a former IAS Officer who has served as District Magistrate of Dhubri, Professor of Management (Deputy Director) at the National Academy of Administration, and Secretary to the Governments of Assam and Meghalaya. His work in the IAS brought to light the fact that the source of India’s challenges is bad policy, which cannot be changed by existing leaders or bureaucrats. He has, since then, been involved in forming a national liberal political party to provide a political alternative to the current system. He is the Founder of the Freedom Team of India and an integral part of the Sone ki Chidiya movement which is aimed at achieving good governance in India, and ending the era of corruption and injustice.Sanjeev is also the author of Breaking Free of Nehru.

Join us for this important discussion! RSVP Manasi Bose (

Date: 1 August 2014, 2-3.30pm
