Speaking to Rahul Kanwal at India Today Conclave East in Kolkata, Biplab Deb said that people have always quoted him without hearing the full  speech."What I had said was there was something...Maybe it was internet, maybe satellite... but there was some technology. Else how did [the  mythological character] Sanjaya see [the war between the Pandavas and Kauravas that] he saw," Deb questioned.On being asked if he was scolded  by BJP chief Amit Shah because of his statement, Biplab Deb said that Shah never scolded him or said anything about his statements.When asked  what he has done as the Chief Minister of Tripura in the past six months, Deb said that the first thing that his government introduced was transparency  in the system. "It took me three and a half months to bring in transparency in the system. We introduced a transparent recruitment policy as well," he  said.Biplab Deb said that when he took charge as the chief minister of the state he thought he'd have no work to do but was surprised by the amount of  neglect the previous government had shown towards Tripura.He said that when he checked the state's financial reserves he found out that the state  was in a debt of Rs 11,500 core. He said he would make Tripura a model state in the next three years.

On illegal immigrants

Biplab Deb said that issue of Assam NRC is an issue of Assam and the central government. He said that it the central government decides to approach  Tripura for an Assam-like NRC, he'll take it forward but until then there are no plans of implementing an NRC in Tripura."We should wait for the results  from the Assam NRC and then see if we want to implement it in other states or not," Biplab Deb said.

On Tripura's drug problem

Biplab Deb, in an interview, has said that Tripura's drug problem is bigger than Punjab's. Expanding on that, Biplab Deb said today that 50,000 kg of  marijuana was confiscated from Tripura."We seized 50,000 kg of marijuana from various parts of Tripura. The mafia were growing it in the state. They  used to pay Rs 500-700 per kilogram to farmers and sell it for Rs 20,000 per kg in the market," Biplab said.The Tripura CM vowed to make Tripura a  "drug-free" state.
