Tripura Chief Minister Biplab

Kumar Deb on Friday said the state produces high quality

bamboo and the flutes used by music maestro Pandit Hariprasad

Chaurasia are made from the bamboo available in the state.

The BJP-IPFT government in Tripura has decided to

plant bamboo in 2,500 hectare land in the state, Deb said.

"The bamboo used for making flutes played by Pandit

Hariprasad Chaurasia is sent from North district and Dhalai

districts of Tripura," Deb said.

He was speaking on the occasion of launching the

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Support and

Outreach Programme here.

The CM joined a large gathering there to hear Prime

Minister Narendra Modi's address through video telecast during

which the PM inaugurated 12 schemes related to MSME

support and outreach programme in New Delhi.

In his address before the PM's video telecast, Deb

encouraged people to develop new ideas and explore marketable

themes and concepts and said Tripura has a huge scope for

working on exploring talent and quality in people.

Deb also said the erstwhile Left Front government

failed to popularise its schemes and activities among people,

and so the schemes failed.

He also said entrepreneurship helps people develop a

sense of responsibility.
