Agartala, April 30: The Chief Minister of Tripura Biplab Deb, who has been in the news for making several controversial remarks recently, has now advised youths that not run behind politicians seeking government jobs, open paan shops or raise cows for livelihood.
Addressing a seminar, Deb said “There should be a cow in every house. Why run after netas for government jobs? Milk is being sold at Rs 50 per litre. Graduates should get cows and milk it to earn Rs 10 lakh in 10 years. Instead of running after political parties”.
The seminar was organised by Tripura Veterinary Council on ‘The role of the veterinary profession in sustainable development to improve livelihoods, food security, and safety’, to mark World Veterinary Day, at Pragna Bhavan in Agartala.
“The youth here runs after political parties for several years to get a govt job and wastes the vital time of their life, had the same youth instead of running after parties set up a paan shop he would have by now had a bank balance of Rs 5 lakh,” he added.
As per him, any unemployed youth with a minimum amount of Rs 75 thousand borrowed from the bank and with a little self-effort, can easily earn at least Rs 25,000 every month.
The Chief Minister further said that there are narrow-minded concepts like a graduate cannot opt for farming, start poultry, or piggery because if he does so, his class will go down.
Prior to this, Deb had also suggested that mechanical engineers should not opt for the civil services, but civil engineers should as they have the experience to build society.
Not only this, a few days ago, he also claimed that the international beauty contests were a farce as the results were all predetermined and took a dig at Diana Hayden “Miss World 1997”.
Earlier this month, Deb started a controversy after he claimed that Internet and satellite communication existed in the days of Mahabharata.
Interestingly, Tripura CM’s remarks come despite and days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi warned all the all elected members and ministers to steer clear of controversies and not make irresponsible statements to the media.
