Agartala: A week after Biplab Kumar Deb stepped down as Tripura Chief Minister, state Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath compared him with Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda and Albert Einstein.

“I have been in politics for 50 years, of which I have been an MLA for 29 years. I have seen everyone from Sachindra Lal Singh (Tripura’s first CM)… I have seen them all… Biplab Deb is what you can call the people’s leader. He is an exception. He has given the state a new direction, a new dream,” Nath said at an event on Friday.

“There is a reason why people are born where they are born… for example, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi, Vivekananda in our country or Einstein… not everyone is born everywhere. It’s good for Tripura that Biplab Kumar Deb was born here,” he continued.

Chief Minister Manik Saha said on Saturday, “Of course, there is no scope to disregard Biplab Deb’s contributions. We recognise it. He’s working now as well. He (Nath) has said what he said. I think it would be proper to ask him about it.”
