BJP MLA Claims Subhash Chandra Bose Was India’s First PM, Says Nehru Got Credit

New Delhi: Basangouda Patil Yatnal, a Karnataka BJP MLA, has once again sparked controversy with his recent remarks. Speaking at a public event, he claimed that Subhash Chandra Bose was India’s first Prime Minister, not Jawaharlal Nehru. He asserted that Subhash Chandra Bose held this position, contending that Bose’s fear tactics forced the British to leave India.

Yatnal, a former Union Minister of State, referred to a statement attributed to B.R. Ambedkar in a book, suggesting that India did not gain independence through hunger strikes or mere non-cooperation but rather because of the fear instilled by Bose.

According to Yatnal, Bose became the first Prime Minister of independent India when certain regions declared their independence after World War II. He claimed that during this period, India had its own currency, flag, and national anthem.

Yatnal’s remarks align with a perspective that challenges Nehru’s status as India’s first Prime Minister, and he claimed that Prime Minister Modi shares this view.
