Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb continued his peculiar statements when he said.
“Rabindra Nath Tagore returned his Nobel Prize in protest against the British.”
In Tripura, had a special place in many of Tagore’s songs and novels such as “Bisharjan”, “Rajarshi” and “Mukut.”, Deb was speaking at a function celebrating the 157th birth anniversary of the iconic poet and playwright Rabindranath Tagore.
Tagore was the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize for literature. He received the Nobel Prize for poetry in 1913. He, however, had denied Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919.
On April 29, Deb advised the educated youth in his state,
“Set up paan shops instead of running after political parties for several years to get government jobs and waste the vital time of their life.”
On April 18, Deb said that the internet was invented by India lakhs of years ago.
Twitteratis have taken a funny dig at it.
Have a look for yourself:
Without my regular dose of #biplabdeblogic, I had slipped into an abyss of despair. PM Narendra Modi did try to fill that void with his Cariappa, Thimayya and Congress-Bhagat Singh remarks. But it wasn't enough. With the "Tagore returned Nobel" junk, Biplab da put me on cloud 9!

Biplab Deb doesn’t escape the trolls thrown at him. This, however, doesn’t stop him and he keeps making controversial statements.
