What Jawaharlal Nehru looks like according to Google India

Google is doing the same for India's first defence minister, home minister, and finance minister as well!

The search engine correctly spits out the answer in the form of a Wikipedia link right up top which says Jawaharlal Nehru was India's first Prime Minister.

Google replaces Nehru with Modi as India's first PM. @Google Pls correct it.

How come you also fell in the trap of Modi?

It could also be because usually such pages with lists display the current minister in their first image. You type anything on Google and the results are mostly accurate, at least the first few ones. Twitterati took to the social media platform to share screenshots of Google throwing up images of PM Modi as India's first prime minister.


This is not the first time Google has "erred" in such a way. "You're so full of junk-", tweeted Spandana as TOI mentioned.

"@suhelseth In the IPL season we now know that even @Google is capable of hurling googlies", replied a user on the above comment. Guess who appears -It's of PM Narendra Modi Oops.

Curiously, a type search on "India first PM" on Google throws up an interesting result that PM Modi may not like (or may be, he will).

Google is the go-to answer for any question or query and has nearly entirely replaced the earlier concept of checking facts in encyclopaedias, however, it might not be a good idea to blindly believe Google, after all, machines also make mistakes?

After one Twitter user discovered the quirk, took a screenshot of the search result page and tweeted it out, many others followed the suit, taking screenshots of their own and sharing them on social media, with variants of the question: Why?
