If Someone Pokes My Govt, Will Chop Their Nails Off: Tripura CM

If Someone Pokes My Govt, Will Chop Their Nails Off: Tripura CM

India

Yet another video of Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb making a controversial statement has gone viral on social media. In the video, which surfaced on Monday, 30 April, he can be heard saying: “...No interference in my government. If someone pokes, or interferes his nail should be chopped off. No one can touch my government”.

This video comes soon after Deb became the laughing stock of social media, following his statement on how people should stop chasing government jobs and milk cows instead.

As seen in the video, the CM tries to drive his point home by drawing an analogy.

Around 8 am, a vegetable vendor brings bottle gourd to the market. However, it gets rotten by 9 am due to repeated digging of nails by customers. This should not happen with my government. No interference in my government. If someone pokes, or interferes his nail should be chopped off. No one can touch my government.
