Even the European countries can claim that they have invented the technology but in reality, the technology was ours.”

BJP politician, Biplab Kumar Deb, the current Chief Minister of Tripura has now ushered a new twist in the theory and invention of internet technology. He claims that internet has been there in India since the time of Mahabharata.

Internet has actually helped blind King of Hastinapur Dhritarashtra to get all updates and details of Kurukshetra battle.  At this crucial scenario in the country, the minister shared this need of the hour’ detail to the public at a Regional Workshop on Computerisation and Reforms at Pragna Bhawan in Agartala on Tuesday.

The Chief Minister further added that Sanjay narrated details and updates of the war in Kurukshetra to the unsighted king Dhritarashtra with the assistance of internet technology.

Deb said in his speech, “Yeh desh wo desh hai, jisme Mahabharat mein Sanjay ne bethke Dhritarashtra ko yudh me kya ho raha tha bol raha tha. Iska matlab technology tha, internet tha, satellite tha… (This is the country where the episodes of the Mahabharat war were narrated to Dhritarashtra by Sanjay. This means technology was there, Internet was there, satellite was there…,”

Internet was actually invented more than thousand years ago, which the National Informatics Centre (NIC) was just using it.

“I congratulate the NIC for their jobs but you people didn’t discover technology. It was discovered much earlier. Even the European countries can claim that they have invented the technology but in reality, the technology was ours. Many of our Microsoft engineers are working in USA and other countries. My country is rich in culture,” he said.

“Our prime minister himself is active on social networking sites and he asks the MPs and even chief ministers about their status and comments on these sites. We are lucky enough to get a guardian-like prime minister,” Deb said.
