    Google seems to have messed up with India's first prime minister. When one types "India's first PM" on the Google search engine what appears first is a Wikipedia link with the name and description of Nehru. However, the picture beside Nehru's name and description carry Modi's picture.

    Narendra Modi

    Yes, they got the name correct, not the photograph. The bizarre anomaly was apparently first noticed on Wednesday.

    Prime Minister Modi's picture is somehow appearing alongside Nehru's name on the Wikipedia link - 'List of Prime Ministers of India'.

    This mess-up prompted Twitteratis who sounded distinctly annoyed. Few took the screenshots of their own and sharing them on social media, with variants of the question: Why?

    Here are some of Twitter's reaction:

    Congress social media team head wrote "what algorithm of yours allows this?! You're so full of junk"

    Mitron, Who's India's first PM?

    How come you also fell in the trap of Modi?

    What has gone wrong with Google Baba?
