‘Influenced by BJP, several countries including SL will accept BJP ideals’: Tripura minister

Tripura law minister Ratan Lal Nath on Thursday claimed that several countries including the United States and Sri Lanka were influenced by Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) ideals and were thinking of accepting them.

Nath's statement came while trying to clarify Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb's claim that Union home minister Amit Shah shared plans of expanding BJP's base even in Nepal and Sri Lanka when he was the party's president, the Hindustan Times reported.

"Our CM meant that all other countries in the world will be influenced by the thoughts of the BJP. But that does not mean the BJP will form its base in those countries. His statement was explained in a wrong way," Nath said. The video clip of his statement was shared on social media platforms on Thursday.

"We feel that the whole world will accept the thoughts of the BJP. Those who are in Sri Lanka are now thinking of accepting thoughts of the BJP. America is also thinking to accept. The entire world is now thinking," said Nath.

The minister further claimed that the entire world was drawn towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ideals and persona.

"We launched the Covid-19 vaccine and other countries are procuring the vaccine from us. The International Yoga Day is being celebrated throughout the world after Narendra Modi talked about it. So, the entire world is thinking about his thoughts and ideas." he said.

A few days ago in a meeting with party leaders in Tripura, CM Biplab Deb said BJP’s expansion of influence in southern states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu was a foregone conclusion given the ambitious strategy adopted by senior party leaders like Amit Shah.

"We were talking at a meeting in the State Guest House, when Ajay Jamwal (BJP's zonal secretary for northeast) said that BJP had come to power in several states. In reply, Amit Shah said that Nepal and Sri Lanka are still left. We have to win there as well," Deb said recalling the conversation. Deb claimed that the BJP became the largest party in the world due to Amit Shah's leadership.

    If BJP is right? Why India is still struggling to develop after BJP’s 2nd term in power. No country will develop with such ideology with only for political agendas.

    A foreign Hindu nationalist party, aims to become popular in a country going through a wave of Sinhala Buddhist nationalism. What you will succeed in is getting the CPC a base here.

    Whether there is pakistan or not, Sri lanka do not indian in Sri lanka. Sri lanka already have indian conspiring to get land under name "human rights." Step by steps, Tamil indian are moving into Sri lanka which is the dream of Tamil indian of Tamil Nadu. Sinhalese nationalist have to make a move to invite Russian or Chinese bases or both into trinco or it will be too late Part of Illegal india agreements of 1986, Rajapksas already put into work with help of UN conspirators. This one is ahieved under fake human rights

    Hide nationalists love to be run india but they do not sinhalese buddists nationalists in Sri lalnka. Only way to deal indian hypocrites to have Chinese or Russian military bases. There are no other choces. Sri lanka had excellent system of nuterality or non alignment, but historical indian andTamil indian threat have pushed Sri lanka to look into larger military powers

    Unequivocal truth. BJP is a failed regime that's trying to sweep its failures under the carpet. Modi can't deliver justice to the farmers in India even after months-long protest. He is most disgusted leader in India for sure.

    Jayapaal Sethinga Saturday, 20 February 2021 04:45 PM

    Many parliamentarians in India are educated. In SL many did not go through grade5, many did not pass GCE (OL) despite our shameless universities offereing political honorary doctorates! Some politicians have been kicked from leading schools in Colombo! How can this country go forward!
