AGARTALA | NOV 19, 2019:
Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has said that Mughals intended to destroy the cultural wonders of the state by “bombing” its arts and architectures.
While addressing at an event “Sharad Samman” organised by a social club of Agartala on Sunday, Deb asked people to use social media to promote the beauty and cultural heritage of the state.
He said, “Tripura has enough wonders still unknown to people… Mughals intended to destroy the culture of Tripura by bombing the arts and architectures”.
“The goddess of Matabari is so divine that even the tortoise walks up all the way to the temple before leaving its last breath. All these wonders deserve to get shared on social media, as many people don”t know about the wonders of Tripura,” he said.
The statement issued by the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) stated that Tripura tourism will not need special advertisements if everyone starts to post about at least five tourist attractions and wonders.
The statement also stated that by doing so Tripura will be popular all over the world automatically and the state government has started a photo and video competition to promote tourism as the state has raw natural beauty.
However, the statement didn’t clarify on which architectural wonders the Mughals “wanted to destroy”.
