Temjen Imna Along, the minister of tribal affairs for Nagaland, made a speech a few days ago on the prejudices North East Indians encounter.
Temjen Imna Along, the minister of education and tribal affairs for Nagaland, attracted a lot of attention after his speech listing the benefits of having small eyes went viral. With his tweet honoring World Population Day, the minister has now garnered media attention once more.

“On the occasion of #WorldPopulationDay, let us be sensible towards the issues of population growth and inculcate informed choices on child bearing,” he tweeted.

The internet community quickly inundated his Twitter wall with amusing comments and jokes.
