BJP government in Rajasthan has removed first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru's name from the new Social Science text book for students of Class 8 which is all set to turn into political controversy. The book makes no mention of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru either as a freedom fighter or as a leader of Independent India.

It also fails to mention Mahatma Gandhi's assasination by Nathuram Godse. Rajasthan Congress President Sachin Pilot has demanded that the state government apologise for the glaring omission.
