On Sunday, CM Deb said, "Today I am announcing that I will start the domestication of cows at the Chief Minister's residence along with my family and will consume its milk. This will also inspire people of Tripura to do the same and will help fight malnutrition."

He made this statement while he was talking about his pet project – distributing cows among families to give them a new mode of income.

CM Deb said that the BJP-led government in Tripura will distribute cows among 5,000 families, to start with. The returns from rearing cows will benefit the people, he promises.

"We are about to launch a scheme for distributing cows among 5,000 families. I am not against setting big industries but in that one has to invest Rs. 10,000 crores for employing 2,000 people. But if I give 10,000 cows to 5,000 families they will start earning in six months," said CM Deb.

CM Deb, even if he rears cattle in his backyard won't be the first minister to do so, as Lalu Yadav in 1990s kept several cows at his official home.
