GUWAHATI: Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb’s latest gaffe has involved Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. In his speech at a function in Udaipur on Rabindra Jayanti on Wednesday, he said, “Tagore returned his Nobel award in protest against the British.”

His office later clarified that the chief minister actually wanted to say that Tagore had renounced Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre.

Deb’s unstoppable verbal blunders have not gone well with the people of the state, who had so overwhelmingly voted BJP to power two months back and ousted the Left Front.

The Congress has refused to say anything on Deb’s remarks, saying his actions have brought shame to the state while the CPM is finding all the fuel to keep the controversies raging.

The civil society, including intellectuals, find that the CM’s words are being regularly picked up by the national media, which has brought a bad name to the state for all the wrong reasons.

No stranger to controversy

Deb’s earlier controversial comments also triggered widespread criticism across the country.

Deb, an Arts graduate from Tripura University, had said that the internet and satellite communication existed during the Mahabharata era. Criticising the “marketing mafia”, he questioned the crowning of Diana Hayden as Miss World in 1997.

The chief minister also stated that mechanical engineers should not opt for civil services, only civil engineers should.

He has also asked educated youth to set up “paan” shops instead of running after political parties to get government jobs.

He suggested exploring a career in the dairy field and keeping cows to earn Rs 10 lakh in 10 years.

He said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee must consult doctors for mental treatment.

According to Deb, the Amazon forest was in Africa and Chinese traveller Hiuen Tsang was a journalist while Chanakya taught at the ancient university situated in present-day Bihar.

In his defence, Deb said that he was quoted wrongly by the media.
