Subramanian Swamy calls Jawahar Lal Nehru 'third class pass', proposes to rename JNU after Netaji

New Delhi: Known for speaking his mind, BJP's firebrand leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday stoked fresh controversy when he called India's first prime minister Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru a 'third class pass'.

Talking to media, Swamy said, “We have recommended to rename JNU after Subash Chandra Bose as he was a highly educated personality and Nehru was just third class pass.”

According to some reports, HRD Ministry is believed to have offered the post of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) vice chancellor to Swamy, but he has put some conditions before accepting the coveted post.

It is learnt that HRD Minister Smriti Irani spoke to Swamy about the offer. However, there was no official communication from the Ministry.
