Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has the moment once again discovered himself in hot waters for his controversial remarks defining diverse communities in the place. This time, Deb has drawn a questionable comparison between men and women of Punjab and Haryana against Bengalis, contacting them “much less clever” and “quite clever.”
Speaking at the Agartala Push Club event on Sunday, Deb reported Sardars and Jats are are a lot less smart, but they are physically solid. Quickly after, Deb suggests, Bengalis are “extremely clever” in a measly endeavor to elaborate on his assertion about how diverse communities in India have “a sure type and character.”
Sardars have ‘less brains’
“If you discuss about men and women of Punjab, the Punjabi Sardar is not scared of anyone. Their brains are dull but physically they are pretty robust. You are unable to defeat them by strength, but with the support of the brain.”
He further more went on to communicate about the Haryanvi, who also, in accordance to him, have boring brains.
“In Haryana, you have the Jats. They also have limited brains but are bodily well created,” he stated.
Now, drawing comparisons among brains and brawn, he dragged Bengalis into the discussion.
“Now, speaking about Bengal and Bengalis, it is said that in this world Bengalis are recognised for wit. Nobody can defeat the wit and the brain of a Bengali.,” the CM stated.
Tripura CM controversies
This is not the first time Deb has landed himself at the centre of controversies with his remarks. In April, the Tripura CM had wrongly quoted the quantity of COVID cases in the neighbouring states of Assam and Manipur.
Likely back to past yr, Deb had reported people today who do not take Hindi as a countrywide language do not adore the nation. In 2018, his remarks about world wide web and satellite communications present in the course of the time of Mahabharata, which made the headlines and became the centre of jokes on social media. The sequence of his baseless, controversial remarks have very long baffled media and netizens, who have been brief to call out the main minister.
