Kangana Ranaut defends her ‘Subhash Chandra Bose was first PM of India’ comment with proof: ‘Some general knowledge…


Kangana Ranaut created quite a stir a couple of years ago when she said that India truly gained independence when the Bhartiya Janta Party came to power in 2014. Now, she has ruffled some feathers again with her latest statement.

. On March 27, Kangana attended a Times Now event, shortly after joining the BJP as an MP candidate from her hometown of Mandi. Almost a week after the same, a clip of Kangana from the interview has gone viral on Twitter and Instagram. In it, she mentions freedom fighter and Azad Hind Fauj leader Subhash Chandra Bose was the first Prime Minister of India, not Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

After all the chaos on social media, Kangana shared an article clipping on Instagram Stories that mentioned how Subhash Chandra Bose had declared himself the Prime Minister of Azad Hind in 1943. “Some general knowledge for beginners,” she wrote.

“Pehle mujhe ye baat aaj clear karne dijiye. Jab hume azaadi mili toh the first Prime Minister of India, Subhash Chandra Bose, woh kahan gae? (Let me clear this first. When we gained independence, where did the first Prime Minister of India, Subhash Chandra Bose, go)” When the host reminded her that Bose was not the Prime Minister of India, Kangana floated a theory. “He wasn’t, but why? Where did he go? How was he made to disappear?” She said that SC Bose fought Japan, Germany for India’s independence but was not allowed to land in India.

Reactions to Kangana’s comment

Subhash Chandra Bose died on August 18, 1945. India gained independence on August 15, 1947. Jawaharlal Nehru was made the first Prime Minister of India.

Kangana’s comments have not gone down well with many online. “According to Kangana Ranaut:- India got independence in 2014 – Netaji Bose was the first PM of independent India. – Sardar Patel wasn’t made PM because he didn’t know English. For more such jokes over the next 5 years, voters in Mandi should vote for Kangana,” read a tweet. “I strongly condemn Kangana Ranaut’s statement that the first Prime Minister of India was Subhash Chandra Bose. We all know that the first PM of India was Shri Narendra Modi Ji after India gained independence in 2014,” joked another person.

“I fear that if Kangana were to become the Education Minister, she might want to rewrite history by claiming that Subhash Chandra Bose was the first prime minister of independent India,” said another person.
