Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman is the first speaker on day two of the 17th Hindustan Times Leadership Summit. She is in conversation with Hindustan Times Editor-in-Chief Sukumar Ranganathan.
The first session will be followed by Hollywood couple Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas. The day will also see chief ministers of three states – Punjab’s Amarinder Singh, Delhi’s Arvind Kejriwal and Chhattisgarh’s Bhupesh Baghel – share their vision for the country.
PM Narendra Modi had set the tone for the thought leaders with his inaugural address on Day 1, connecting his government’s recent decisions to the theme of the Summit, ‘Conversations for a better tomorrow’. Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla sounded a stark warning on the future of the group’s Vodafone Idea Limited if the government didn’t help soften the blow after October’s Supreme Court verdict.
