New Delhi: Education Minister Smriti Irani, already mired in a controversy over her fake degree, became a butt of jokes on Twitter after a teacher spotted spelling mistakes in a letter sent on her behalf.

Irani has asked her ministry for an explanation.

The words "minister" and "sansadhan (resources)" are spelt incorrectly in the letter that was dispatched to schoolteachers across the country, congratulating them on the performance of their students.
