Patna: Bihar’s new education minister Mewalal Choudhary was mocked online after an old video of him singing Jana Gana Mana at what appears to be a school event was shared by Rashtriya Janata Dal.
In the video, Choudhary, a Janata Dal United (JDU) MLA, can be seen singing the National Anthem, however, he forgets some words in between. “Bihar Education Minister Mevalal Chaudhary, accused of several corruption cases, does not even know the National Anthem. Do you have any shame left, Nitish Kumar ji? Where have you sunk your conscience?” the RJD captioned the video.
He is heard singing “Punjab Vasant Gujarat Maratha” instead of “Punjab Sindh Gujarat Maratha”.
