Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Monday evening launched bamboo rice.

In a tweet, the CM said, “Glad to announce that Tripura successfully produced ‘Bamboo rice’.”

“Launched ‘Tripura Bamboo Rice’ last evening. Bamboo rice has more protein than normal rice and wheat,” the tweet added.

“It helps to reduce joint pain, back pain and other pain. It also contains anti diabetic elements,” he further said.


Adding further he said, “By taking it regularly, you can get rid of cholesterol related problems.”

“Intake of bamboo rice is extremely useful to provide adequate vitamins to pregnant women,” Deb added.

“After Bamboo Biscuits, now ‘Bamboo Rice’ will play a crucial role in making Tripura’s youth self-reliant,” he added.


He further thanked the Tripura Bamboo Mission for this effort and said that the Tripura government is committed to fulfilling Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of doubling farmer’s income by 2022.
