There may be other things happening in the country, but Tripura CM Biplab Deb knows the art of remaining in news. No, it’s not about any development work in the state but the statements that he makesoften turn controversial. Recently, he justified the reason behind dropping May Day from the list of holidays in the state and said the decision was taken, because government employees didn’t need one on International Labour Rights Day.

Deb said that May Day is meant for workers and labourers and none else.

“Why do government employees need aholiday on May Day ?… I have noticed that it is a holiday on that day in very few states.
