NAMS has now decided that it will not endorse the new report till each section of the report has been cleared by all council members.
If the now-discredited report was not "cleared by all council members," the next questions are: (a) Who cleared it? (b) How did NAMS become a party to to the Inter-Academy report? (c) Did anyone from NAMS contribute to the report?
To my knowledge, the report was circulated among the Fellows of the Indian Academy of Sciences; it was not a draft (to be discussed and, if necessary, modified), but the final report itself -- the one that was submitted to the E&F Ministry.
I wonder what kind of revolt is brewing in the other academies ...
