Agartala: It seems there is no end to the “BiploPedia’s” (Biplab Deb’s Personal Wikipedia) weird gaffes that include all sorts of mystical data and insane scientific technologies that have aroused both laughter and anger alike since the last few months.
After internet-during-Mahabharat-Period and comments on Diana Hayden, now the Tripura chief minister wants every family in the state to breed and read ducks so that oxygen level in water bodies can increase.
CM Deb also went to the extent of saying that the state government is planning to distribute 50,000 ducklings to those families who inhibit near water bodies in Tripura.
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb stated that he believes they will boost the rural economy and that they recycle water, and their swimming increases oxygen levels in water bodies. He was addressing an inaugural event of a traditional boat race at Rudrasagar which is an artificial lake built around the water palace Neermahal when the statement was made.
Addressing the programme, CM Deb said, “When ducks swim in water, oxygen level automatically increases in the lakes and ponds and that oxygen gets recycled. Fish in the water will get more oxygen. They also benefit from the bird droppings.”
“Fishes can also grow faster in a more organic way.” He added further.
Gathering criticism for his so-called irrelevant comments and ideas, Tripura Juktibad Vikas Mancha, which is an organization working for spreading scientific information says it was “loose talk” and didn’t have any scientific basis.
Blaming the CPM for ruining village culture in Tripura, Deb said that ducks and poultry were an integral part of the village culture, which was damaged during the 25 years of CPM-led Left Front rule.
