Nehru, Patel and Bose Were Hanged by British : HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar

New Delhi: In a major embarrassment for the government, Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar, Monday, saluted all the freedom fighters and said former PM Jawaharlal Nehru and ex-home minister Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose were hanged.

While addressing BJP supporters in Madhya Pradesh, Javadekar said, “We salute freedom fighters like Netaji, Sardar Patel, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru who were hanged.”
