Major blunder: Jharkhand Education Minister pays tribute to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

|

Ranchi, July 22: It seems that Jharkhand's education minister Neera Yadav needs to be educated. She recently made a mother of all blunders when she paid a floral tribute to the former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, thinking him to be dead!

The shocking incident happened at an event in Koderma, where she was invited as the chief guest, to inaugurate smart classes. Before the event started, Yadav paid homage to Kalam's photograph.

Surprisingly, none of those who saw Yadav while garlanding Kalam raised an objection. BJP MLA Manish Jaiswal, the school principal and teachers were also present there. [Oneindia Exclusive: Kalam's message to youth - 'I reached the destination, my mission']

In an attempt to downplay the goof-up, Yadav said "photos of great leaders are also garlanded to honour them and is a way to pay respect".

"She also added that Kalam is a great scientist and there is nothing objectionable in garlanding the picture of a leader", an IBN report said. [I am absolutely fine; don't believe rumours: Dr Abdul Kalam]

Yadav's bizarre act led to an embarrassment for the ruling BJP government in the state.

Meanwhile, the pics have gone viral and Yadav was criticised on the social media for the lack of her knowledge.
