Surprising! Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil does not know the name of his BSF Chief properly, who he inadvertently referred to as "AK Mishra" and "Mishra Ji" and not AK Mitra.

Patil's slip of tongue left the BSF Director General and the audience awestruck. But during his 20-minute speech, Patil consistently referred to him as "Mishra Ji" not once or twice but four times.

However, later, while he was concluding his speech, a quiet word from the dais made him set the record straight and the BSF chief was correctly named in the end.
