New Delhi: Stirring yet another controversy and this time in international politics, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that BJP is planning to expand not only across the country but in neighbouring nations as well.
Biplab Deb said Amit Shah, who was then BJP chief, during a meeting spoke about “overseas” expansion after winning in all the states in India.
“We were talking in the state guesthouse when Ajay Jamwal (northeast zonal secretary of BJP) said that BJP formed its government in several states. In reply, Amit Shah said that now Sri Lanka and Nepal are left. ‘We have to expand the party in Sri Lanka, Nepal and win there to form a government’,” Biplab Deb said of the conversation he claimed they had then. It’s not yet clear if these remarks were made in jest; there was no official reaction from the party till the time report was filed.
The Chief Minister also said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress will be defeated in the state election to be held soon.
Biplab Deb praised Mr Shah’s leadership for making the BJP the “world’s largest party”. The Chief Minister said the BJP will change the trend of change of government between the Left and the Congress every five years in Kerala and emerge as the winner in the southern state as well.
