Known for speaking his mind, the Tripura chief minister Biplab Deb has now come out with a latest statement.
He said that one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brothers drives an autorickshaw while another is a grocer.
The statements were seen as to explain that poverty is not a curse.
He was speaking at a function in Agartala.
The occasion was to mark the second anniversary of the Indian Army’s surgical strike inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
It is then that CM Deb said although Modi has been Prime Minister for four years and served as Gujarat chief minister for 13 years, his family lives the life of middle-class.
He also mentioned how his mother stays in a small house and one of his brothers still drives an autorickshaw.
A photograph of an auto-driver resembling Modi went viral two years ago on social media with netizens claiming that he was the PM’s brother.
The auto-driver had no connection with the Prime Minister.
Last month, Deb claimed ducks can raise oxygen levels in water which can help boost fish production.>
