Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Monday cautioned against intolerance as an impediment to India’s prosperity. “We must create a more humane and tolerant society. We can’t build a prosperous society unless society is tolerant to each other, is more humane, unless it’s accepts diversity and unless it adopts the philosophy of live and let live,” Chidambaram said at a session organised by IIM Calcutta in association with Observer Research Foundation on economic reforms.
