Forget govt. jobs; Open Paan shops or milk cows: Tripura CM to educated youth

Agartala: As if Tripura Chief Minister has vowed to kick one controversy after the other. From claiming ‘internet existed during Mahabharat Era’, to ridiculing Diana Hayden’s Miss World title to arguing that ‘mechanical engineers should not opt for civil services’, Biplab Deb continues to make weird statements.

The Tripura Chief has now advised the educated youth in his state to “set up paan shops instead of running after political parties for several years to get government jobs and waste vital time of their life.” Deb believes, if they would have opted for these employment options, they would have gathered a bank balance of Rs 5 lakh.

He urged educated youth to become self-employed by starting various projects with bank loans under the Prime Minister’s Mudra scheme. Deb, while speaking at a seminar organised by the Tripura Veterinary Council on Sunday, advised youths to start “milking cows” to become self-employed.

“Every household should have a cow. Milk sells at Rs 50 per litre; instead of being jobless for 10 years, if these people sold milk, they would have had a bank balance of Rs 10 lakh by now,” the CM added.

Interestingly, in January this year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during a TV interview had considered a person selling pakodas as employed.

How to keep opened coconut fresh

Coconuts should be stored in a cool place, be it the pantry, fridge or freezer because low temperatures suppress infection by micro-organisms, to which coconuts are prone. . For dried (shredded) coconut, it is best kept in an airtight container in the fridge once opened.

A package of shredded coconut can last between four and six months. If you want to keep it longer than that, especially if it’s been opened, store it in the refrigerator in a sealed, airtight container.

If you are not having a refrigerator to store opened coconut don’t worry here are some other tips..,

Put some plastic foil around it, so the bugs aren’t on it. And don’t put it in direct sunlight. Since you have no fridge, maybe search for a ‘cooler’ place (cellar, cabinet, a place where the sun never comes etc.) to put it.

Cutting the coconut pieces and put it in the cup of water and for an hour dispose the water and pour new water into that.

Fill the opened coconut with salt.Salt should preserve it.You can use it max for a week.


Nitish govt ‘shedding crocodile tears’ on Dalit issue: Jitan Ram Manjhi

Patna:Former Bihar chief minister Jitan Ram Manjhi has alleged that the Bihar government is “shedding crocodile tears” on Dalit issue and said that the state has an abysmally low rate of conviction in cases lodged under the SC/ST Act.

Claiming that a number of steps aimed at the welfare of SCs and STs were taken during his brief tenure, Manjhi said the chief minister’s recent pro-Dalit stance was “aimed at deriving political mileage at a time when the Lok Sabha elections are just a few months away”.

“A total of 25,943 cases, lodged under the SC/ST Act, was pending in Bihar till 2017. Out of these, convictions were made in only 89, which is a mere 0.34%.

Kumar has been the chief minister for over a decade. The statistics speak volumes about his commitment towards the depressed classes”, Manjhi told reporters in Patna on Saturday.

Manjhi became the chief minister in 2014 when Kumar resigned owning responsibility for the debacle of the JD(U) in the Lok Sabha polls.
