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.

Rattled by comments on Twitter, Irani said: "I would not misspell my own name in Hindi."
@rai_saurabh100 no it's not Saurabh. Would not misspell my own name in Hindi. Have asked concerned organisation to give an explanation.
