Gujarat Minister Shankar Chaudhary misspelt the word ‘elephant’ while teaching students during a school enrolment drive launched by the government, but later claimed the error was “intentional”.

The incident took place on Thursday when Chaudhary visited a government-run primary school in Deesa town of Banaskantha district, around 150km from here, as part of the ‘Shala Praveshotsav’ (school enrolment drive) of the government, a programme carried out every year.

The episode came to light when a picture showing him writing a wrong spelling of elephant while teaching English as part of the drive went viral on social media.
