Tripura CM Biplab Deb has fallen victim to the information tampering on the internet. When the entire nation is busy debating the NRC draft publication in Assam which has created quite a flutter among the opposition parties, the Wikipedia page of Tripura CM shows him as a Bangladeshi immigrant.
Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to the Chief Minister, Sanjay Mishra said that a section has been active in the social media to spoil the image of Biplab Kumar Deb since he became the Tripura Chief Minister.
Recently on NRC issue, he said that everyone in the state had valid papers and there was no demand for a citizen’s register on the lines of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. He also expressed confidence that his counterpart in Assam would be able to handle the situation after the final draft of NRC was published.
Biplab Deb himself described the citizenship row as “not a big issue”.
He told reporters on Tuesday that “There is no demand for NRC in Tripura. Everything is systematised in Tripura. I think this is not a big issue even for Assam, (Chief Minister) Sarbananda Sonowal ji is capable of managing it,”.
