Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar was the toast of twitter and social media over his comments at the Azadi 70- Yaad Karo Kurbani function in Chhindwara, Madhya Pradesh today.

The HRD minister said, “Kitne veer, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Sardar Patel, Pt. Nehru, Bhagat Singh, Rajguru, Sabhi jo phasi par chaddhe…” in full extempore flow. Many on social media went for the minister’s jugular. Here are a few tweets:

Here are a few tweets defending Javadekar:

To set the matter to rest, here’s the clip in which he says what he said. Draw your own conclusions! Some jumped the gun and drew comparisons with Javadekar’s predecessor in the HRD ministry, Smriti Irani, who was lampooned for her mistaking a certificate course from Yale to a degree from that famed Ivy League university.
