Speaking at Madison Square addressing Non-Residents of India (NRI), Modi called Bapu as 'Mohanlal' Karamchand Gandhi instead of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
Speaking about NRI's roles in India's fight for freedom, Modi said Gandhi too was an NRI. While mentioning Gandhiji's name who is also known as Bapu, Modi did the goof-up.
However, this was not the first time when Modi called Bapu as "Mohanlal". Earlier he mispronounced Gandhi's name while speaking at a rally ahead of Lok Sabha election 2014.
He was quoted as saying, "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."
