PRIME Minister Narendra Modi has summoned Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb over his controversial statements.
A senior BJP leader on Sunday said Deb has been summoned to meet Modi and BJP President Amit Shah on May 2 in the national capital.

Deb, who took charge of Tripura last month, has made several remarks which have been triggered widespread criticism.

He had stated that the Internet and satellite communication existed during the Mahabharata era. He also questioned the crowning of Diana Hayden as Miss World in 1997.
The Chief Minister also stated that mechanical engineers should not opt for civil services, but civil engineers should.
