Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb is in a unique situation following his statement that the Union Home Minister Amit Shah plans to establish a BJP government in the neighbouring countries of Sri Lanka and Nepal during a party program in Rabindra Satabarshiki Bhavan last Saturday.
Responding to the BJP leader and Tripura Chief Minister, the Election Commission of Sri Lanka turned down such claims saying that the Sri Lanka’s electoral law does not permit such an arrangement.
Nepal Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali took to Twitter on Tuesday to confirm that the Government of Nepal has conveyed its formal objection to the remarks by the BJP leader and Tripura Chief Minister.
“Noted. Formal objection has been already conveyed,” Gyawali said in a tweet in response to a Nepali Twitter user, who had drawn his attention to the statement.
Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb, known for his remiss remarks in an unrelated report, said that Harvard University is in London. “When we think about England or London, pictures of the Cambridge University and Harvard University come to our mind.” He was addressing a gathering at Tripura Central University.
