Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb says internet existed in Mahabharata era
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday in an absurd statement said that Internet and satellite communication existed in the days of Mahabharata.
“Internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of Mahabharata. Sanjaya (the charioteer of king Dhritarashtra) using the technology gave a detailed account and description to the blind king about the battle of Kurukshetra,” Deb said
He delivered the statement while inaugurating a two-day workshop on computerisation of Public Distribution System (PDS).
The BJP leader said: “The Europeans and the Americans may claim that it is their invention, but it is actually our technology. Internet and satellite system had existed during the lakhs of year ago.”
“How could Dhritarashtra see through Sanjay’s eyes? There was technology available at that time… Internet was there, satellite communication was there,” the 47-year-old Chief Minister said very confidentially and repeatedly.
