Yet another slip up by Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi mispronounces name of the Mahatma calling him Mohanlal Karamchand Gandhi

Dudu (Rajasthan): In yet another slip up, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Narendra Modi has mispronounced the first name of the Mahatma calling him Mohanlal Karamchand Gandhi instead of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

“Towards the end of his life, Mahatma Gandhi had a wish which was not fulfilled. Would you fulfil that wish? Would you fulfil Gandhi’s wish? Mohanlal Karamchand Gandhi..." he said addressing a rally here on Tuesday.

The slip up of the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate comes days after his goof up between Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookerji and revolutionary Shyamaji Krishna Verma.

“Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a revolutionist. He died in 1930. His last wish was that his ashes be brought to India after independence. The Congress governments didn’t get them back. “It was I who got the ashes back to India in 2003," Modi had said in Kheda recently while confusing Shyama Prasad Mookerjee with Shyamaji Krishna Verma.

He had apologized for the error after it was brought to his notice, and clarified that he meant Shyamaji Krishna Verma.
