"To the Minister of School Education, West Bengal. There is a glaring error with the image used in one of the school text books to depict Milkha Singh-ji. Could you please request the publisher to recall and replace this book? Sincerely," the actor tweeted while tagging the senior leader in the ruling party Derek O'Brian.
