New Delhi, Sept 26: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who is known for giving controversial statements, has done the same yet again. Reportedly, Swamy has called India's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru a 'third class pass' .
While comparing Nehru with Subhas Chandra Bose, firebrand leader 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."
Earlier Swamy's tweets about JawaharLal Nehru University (JNU) created huge political storm. While commenting about the post of JNU's Vice Chancellor being offered to him, he said that there is no question of his considering the offer unless he is allowed to rusticate 'anti-national students'.
He tweeted, "PTs are overwhelmingly against my accepting JNU VC post. No question of my considering unless allowed to rusticate anti- national students."
"I think JNU needs an Anti Narcotics Bureau campus branch office to raid dorms and arrest Naxals, jehadis and Elis. BSF camp also", he said in another tweet.
Recently media reports came to light saying that Swamy is being considered for the coveted post of the Vice Chancellor of JNU, by the Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani.
