Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb sparked a fresh controversy on Saturday when he revealed BJP’s alleged ambition to for m a gover nments in Nepal and Sri Lanka.

“Amit Shah, who was then BJP national president, had told us that the party was planning to expand its footprint and establish its rule in Nepal and Sri Lanka during a close interaction with several members at the state guesthouse in Agartala,” he claimed.

Lauding the union Budget of the next financial year, he said: “It is a step towards the making of an ‘Atmanirbhar South Asia’. The policies and actions of India have been able to make Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal self-reliant.” Opposition CPM and Congress demanded immediate action against Biplab for his “most undemocratic speech” against sovereign countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka and called for a probe into his claim about Shah planning to capture power in the countries.

    This is what we are heading for when we are unable to pay back the loans. Now we have to face the reality. The East terminal was just a litmus test.

    Indians are now talking in public. They are showing their true colors now. Unable to manage and uplift the lives of their own country with a vast land mass they intend in controlling the neighbours.

    India doesn't have any right to form governments in Sri Lanka or in Nepal. We will have to face the situation now.
