Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb, whose gaffes, one after the other, embarrassed the BJP in the last few months, scored a big zero for his response on mob violence that swallowed four lives in the state. Four men were killed in four separate mob attacks last week in Tripura, over rumours that kidnappers were out on streets hunting for children to sell their organs. Similar attacks were reported from Assam, Manipur, Maharashtra and Gujarat. When Mr Deb was asked about his government's action plan to contain the menace of mob lynchings merely on suspicion spread through social media, he said, "Tripura mein ek anand ka leher chala hua hai. Aap bhi is leher ko upbhog kijiye. Aap ko anand aana chaiye... mera chehra dekhiye... mujhe kitni khushi ho rahi hai. yeh sarkar janta ka sarkar hai, janta action legi (I think that you all should think that today there is a wave of happiness in Tripura. You should also enjoy this happiness wave and you will also become happy. Look at my face, how happy I am. It's people's government and people will take action."
