Tripura Chief Minister's Latest: Tagore Returned Nobel Prize In Protest

Tripura Chief Minister's Latest: Tagore Returned Nobel Prize In Protest”

Several reports in the media had said Deb would be among the BJP chief ministers who would campaign for the party in Karnataka elections. "Tagore returned his Nobel award in protest against the British", he said while addressing a function in Udaipur on Rabindra Jayanti.

The mistake what Deb committed in the lecture that he misinterpreted the fact, which attracted severe criticism across the country.

"Our chief minister has crossed every limit of idiocy". Tagore had very much accepted the Nobel Prize that he was awarded in the field of literature in 1913 and also being knighted by the British government in 1915.

Even Tagore has nothing to do with the British as the Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology/Medicine and Literature are awarded by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden, as stipulated in the will of the Swedish-born inventor and global industrialist Alfred Nobel. He, however, had rejected Knighthood in protest against the Jalianwalla Bagh massacre in 1919.

However, his wrong statement before the school students triggered reaction across the society.

This is not the first time that Biplab has made a controversial statement, his last one being where he said, anyone who issued a threat against his or interferes, their nails should be chopped off.

The Chief Minister also said that mechanical engineers ought to maybe not elect for civil services, but civil engineers should. "Leaders like him are only a laughing stock for people".

Since 90's Tripura has been getting coverage either for insurgency, brutality, bloodshed, corruption and maladministration and now time has come to stop these, Dey added.
