Claiming that the decision to award Miss World and Miss Universe titles to Indian women five years in a row was market-driven, Deb said only Aishwarya Rai was a quintessential representative of Indian beauty.
The former beauty queen in a curt response said that she was proud of her brown skin. Any Indian contestant seemed to be able to take part in the Miss World contest and win the crown, even Diana Hayden got it. Dale counters Deb on Diana saying, "I am not in touch with Diana from a few years, but I bet she is way too much smarter than how the Tripura CM wants to portray her".
He claimed Indian women like Aishwarya Rai was like Goddess Laxmi or Saraswati, and criticized Diana Hayden as she did not look godly and added: all global fashion and design event organisers in Paris are "international marketing mafia" and they take girls and make them walk with fabric on ramps. "Today, there is a beauty parlour in every corner of the country", PTI quoted Deb as saying. Indian beauty is all about Goddess Laxmi, Goddess Saraswati.
The CM, who had previously claimed that Internet was available in the Mahabharata era, added that women in ancient India didn't use cosmetics.
He also said that Hayden won the title because of "international fashion mafias".
Furthermore he stated, "They make the girls walk with fabric on the ramps". Biplab Kumar in a freakish claim added that it was because of "pre-fixed" plan that "whoever was going for Miss World Competition from India won". "They plan beforehand who will get the award and this is 100% true", the BJP leader said.
A few weeks ago, Deb had made a freaky statement that the Internet existed during the times of the epic, Mahabharata.
As Diana had to fulfill her Miss World responsibilities she postponed her marriage to her then boyfriend, Mark Cohen in 1997. Aishwarya Rai got it.
Diana competed with 86 other contestants to win the crown. "It means internet was there, the satellites and that technology was there in this country at that time", Deb had said.
