Instigating frequent controversies with his comments, Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb, in one of his recent comments has advocated that every house should have a cow.

Biplab Deb said, "at a time when milk is available at Rs 50 per litre, everyone should keep a cow at his/her home".

He added that any graduate who has been roaming around without a job for 10 years, could have earned over Rs 10 lakhs if he would have raised a cow for 10 years.

He said, "Har ghar mein gai honi chahiye. Yahan dudh Rs 50 litre hai, toh ek gai paal le, koi graduate hai, naukri ke liye ghoomta rehta hai 10 saal se, agar 10 saal gai paal leta toh apne aap Rs 10 lakh ka bank balance tayar ho jata".

A day before, the chief minister had said that "civil engineers are better suited for the civil services than mechanical engineers".

Deb recently said Diana Hayden, who was crowned Miss Universe in 1997, did not represent Indian women

Before that, he had said internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of the Mahabharata.
