New Delhi: Education Minister Smriti Irani made it to the headlines for all the reasons for a second time, when a teacher highlighted the spelling mistakes in the letterhead of a congratulatory letter sent to her school.

She became the butt of jokes on social media platforms, after Richa Kumar of Delhi Public School spotted the error and posted it on her Facebook page along with a note.

In the letter, which was sent to schoolteachers applauding them for the performance of their students, the words ‘Minister’ and ‘Sansadhan’ were spelt incorrectly.

The post read as follows:

“Thank you for congratulating me on the excellence I exemplify. However, having been a teacher for the last twenty years, your official letter head is an affront to my sensibilities as a Language teacher. The attached photographs are self explanatory. Please ensure that at least the people who work for you, in your ministry, are well educated.”

On learning about it, Education Minister Smriti Irani ordered an inquiry into the matter.

Clarifying that the mistake was not made by her, Irani posted on Twitter, “I would not misspell my own name in Hindi.”
