‘Milk Cows, Why Run After Govt Jobs?’: Biplab Deb at It Again

After asserting that the internet was around during Mahabharata and that Diana Hayden is not an “Indian” beauty, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has made yet another (for lack of a better word) boo-boo!

Speaking to youngsters at a seminar organised by the Tripura Veterinary Council, the Tripura chief minister said the educated youth should "set up paan shops instead of running after political parties for several years to get government jobs and waste vital time of their life,” reported NDTV.

He added that apart from paan shops, “milking cows is another option.”

Deb said that a bank balance of Rs 5 lakh would be a reality for youngsters if they had started various projects under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana. It is “narrow minded” to think that educated people should not get into farming or poultry. That, he believed, was the reason for unemployment.

The BJP leader had also earlier said that civil engineers should take up civil services as they would know how to “build society.”
