Indian minister ridiculed for claiming Internet was invented by ancient Indians

In a freakish statement, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb has said that the internet was invented lakhs of years ago and that the technology and satellites were present during the period of Mahabharata. He further stated that internet existed even during the times of Mahabharata.

"Internet and satellite system had existed in India during lakhs of years ago".

"India is that country which during the time of Mahabharata, Sanjay was informing Dritharastra about the happening in the battle and this is proof that technology existed during the time of Mahabharata". "How could Dhritarashtra see through Sanjay's eyes?"

"I congratulate the NIC for their jobs but you people didn't discover technology".

"But, again today India has regained its position in technology in the world and it can be proved from the fact that a large number of software engineers play a vital role in the U.S. companies", he added. Even the European countries can claim that they have invented the technology but in reality, the technology was ours. "See Microsoft, it may be a USA company but most of its engineers are all from our country", he added. "My country is rich in culture", he said.
