Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb talked himself into a controversy soon after shocking feedback that painted stereotyped caricatures of Haryana’s Jats and the Bengalis.
“Haryana has many Jats. Haryana’s Jats absence brains but are brawny. They are unable to match Bengalis in brains. Bengalis are known all in excess of India for getting intelligent,” Mr Deb declared.
A 50-next movie of the Main Minister’s speech was posted on the net by Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala, who described the comments as indicative of “the frame of mind of the BJP”.
“Shameful and unfortunate. BJP Chief Minister, Tripura, Biplab Dev insulted the Sikh brothers of Punjab and the Jat group of Haryana, contacting them “low minded”,” Mr Surjewala tweeted.
“This is the correct state of mind of the BJP. Why are Khattarji and Dushyant Chautala chupp (silent)?” he questioned, referring to the Haryana Chief Minister and his deputy.
“In which are Modiji and Naddaji (the BJP President)? Apolgise, take action,” he extra.
शर्मनाक व दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण!
भाजपा के मुख्यमंत्री, त्रिपुरा,बिप्लब देव ने पंजाब के सिख भाइयों व हरियाणा के जाट समाज को अपमानित कर उनका “दिमाग़ कम” बताया
ये भाजपा की औछी मानसिकता है।
खट्टरजी व दुष्यंत चौटाला चुप्प क्यों हैं?
मोदी जी और नड्डाजी कहाँ हैं?

Mr Deb has a penchant for generating contentious and eyebrow-raising statements.
In November previous 12 months he claimed the Mughals supposed to wipe out Tripura’s cultural wonders of the condition by “bombing” its artwork and architecture.
The year ahead of Mr Deb claimed that the online and satellite interaction existed in the times of the Mahabharata. “The Europeans and the Americans may declare it is theirs, but it is actually our technologies,” he declared.
Also in 2018 Mr Deb stated oxygen amounts in bodies of h2o “mechanically” increase if ducks swim in them and that he preferred to distribute ducks amid villagers to enhance the rural financial system.
