Kolkata:According to a Hindi news site, ‘Aaj Tak’, after Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma, the Education Minister of West Bengal twisted his tongue and uttered the name of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad while remembering APJ Abdul Kalam in a public function on Tuesday. It was reported by the very media that Partha Chatterjee referred APJ Abdul Kalam as Abul Kalam Azad in his speech. It is to be noted that Abul Kalam Azad is also a maverick personality who was born in 1888 and was actively involved in the freedom struggle of India. After Independence, Azad became a prominent cabinet member of the Nehru Government. Whereas APJ Abdul Kalam was the 11th President of the Nation. Now we all know that it was nothing but an instance of a tongue twister.
However, many people who know Partha Babu stated that it was an instance of ‘slip of tongue’. So, it can be pardoned.
