KOLKATA: West Bengal governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has followed in the footsteps of senior BJP leaders, claiming that Arjun’s arrows had “nuclear powers” and there were “udaan khatolas (flying machines)” in the age of Ramayana.
Dhankhar chose the inauguration of a science and engineering fair in Kolkata to drop this ‘info-bomb’ on an unsuspecting audience. “The plane was (invented) in 1910 or 1911. But … if you delve into our old scriptures… in the Ramayana, we had this udaan khatola (flying machine). And, in the Mahabharata, we had a situation where Sanjay narrated everything and not from the (battle) field. We had those arrows of Arjun which had nuclear power,” Dhankhar said on Tuesday.
