I’m sorry, says Dalai Lama on remarks over Nehru

Bengaluru: Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Friday apologised for his statement that India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was "self-centred." On Wednesday, he had said Nehru had a "self-centred attitude" to become India's first prime minister even though Mahatma Gandhi was in favour of Muhammad Ali Jinnah taking the top post at that time. 

He had also claimed India's Partition would not have happened if Mahatma Gandhi's wish of Jinnah becoming the prime minister had materialised.  "My statement has created a controversy. I apologise if I have said something wrong," said the Dalai Lama, when he was asked by reporters to comment on what he meant by calling Nehru self-centred.
