The Union government on Tuesday renamed the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) at Tin Murti Bhavan in Delhi. The site will now be known as the Prime Minister’s Museum and Library Society (PMMS). The government had announced to change the name of this museum on June 16. It will be known by the new name from August 15.

Congress protested.

The Congress had attacked the BJP for changing the name of the Nehru Memorial Museum. Congress National President Mallikarjan Kharge had said that those who have no history have gone to erase the history of others. He had said that the personality of Prime Minister Nehru cannot be reduced before changing the name.

JP Nadda replied.

BJP president JP Nadda also hit back at Mallikarjan Kharge’s statement. He had said that the Congress is not able to digest the fact that leaders of different races are also contributing to the country. He said that PM Museum is an effort beyond politics.

Former Prime Minister Nehru’s official residence

Built during 1929-30, Tin Murthy House was earlier the official residence of the Commander-in-Chief in India. After independence, it became the official residence of then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru lived here for about 16 years until his death in 1964. The subsequent government proposed to construct a museum and a library in the building, dedicated to Nehru. After this, the Nehru Memorial Museum was inaugurated and the NMML Society was established.
