The current Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has made headlines many times since his tenure began. The Indian politician belongs to the Bhartiya Janta party. He started office as the CM on March 9, 2018. Often he makes speeches which render him the laughing stock of the Indian political scene. This time again, the CM has made a statement which has shocked many. And many from across the nation are mocking him for the same. But have they all got it right this time, or not?
CM Biblap Deb recently addressed the crowd at the inauguration event for the traditional boat race at Rudrasagar. There he made a statement that the govt will distribute 50000 white ducklings to farmers living near the lake. According to him raising ducklings increases the level of oxygen in the water and is also good for fish farming.
Soon the statement went viral on the social media. Here is a tweet about the same and a short video of the CM Biplab Deb himself:
