Here’s What Biplab Deb Said About BJP’s Expansion!

New Delhi: Tripura Chief Miniter Biplab Kumar Das has triggered a fresh controversy with his remark that the saffron party has plans not only to expand across the length and breadth of the country but in neighbouring countries also, a report in The Times of India said. Speaking at a party event in Agartala on Sunday, Deb raised eyebrows when he disclosed former BJP president Amit shah’s alleged plan to expand the party in Nepal and Sri Lanka and establish BJP’s governments in both countries.

The Tripura Chief Minister has often stirred a hornet’s nest in the past with his controversial remarks on politics and bizarre theories about science in ancient India and Hindu traditions. Earlier in April 2018, he had claimed that the internet and sophisticated satellite communication system existed in the days of Mahabharata, drawing sharp ridicule from his opponents, academicians and social media users.

“Some European countries and the US claim that modern communication system were their invention, but we had all these technology in ancient times,” Deb, a graduate in Humanities from Tripura University, had said. Deb had also drawn flak after he questioned the crowning of Diana Hayden as “Miss World” in 1997 and said that Indian beauty should ideally look like Goddesses Lakshmi and Saraswati.

The TOI report said that Deb recalled a meeting with Amit Shah ahead of the 2018 Assembly elections in Tripura. Shah was then the BJP’s national president. It was at this meeting, he said, Shah had discussed the alleged plan to spread BJP’s presence in Nepal and Sri Lanka. Halling the leadership of Amit Shah as the party president, Deb said, ‘Amit Shah, who was then BJP national president, had told us that the party was planning to expand its footprint and establish its rule in Nepal and Sri lanka during a close interaction with several members at the state guesthouse here.’ Amit Shah served as the president of the BJP from 2014 to 2020.
