"These days a message is being run on social media in which Jawaharlal Nehru called Subhash Chandra Bose a war criminal. This is character assassination of the national hero," he said, addressing a function to mark the death anniversary of freedom fighter Sheelbhadra Yaji at his native Bhakhtiyarpur.

"Pandit Nehru's contribution to the freedom movement and nation building cannot be forgotten," the senior JD(U) leader said.

Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupendra Singh Hooda was also present at the function to mark death anniversary of Sheelbhadra Yaji.
