Nehru Memorial Now PMs' Museum: Here Are Other Places, Institutions Named after First Prime Minister
The BJP and Congress have been engaged in a war of words over the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) being renamed as the Prime Ministers’ Museum and Library (PMML) Society

The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) has officially been renamed as the Prime Ministers’ Museum and Library (PMML) Society, a development that has sparked a heated exchange between the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and opposition Congress.

The renaming of NMML, located on Teen Murti Marg in central Delhi, came after a decision by the government in June.

“Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) is now Prime Ministers Museum and Library (PMML) Society w.e.f August 14, 2023 – in tune with the democratisation and diversification of the remit of the society. Happy Independence Day! @narendramodi, @rajnathsingh @MinOfCultureGoI,” PMML vice-chairman A Surya Prakash wrote on social media site X.

The building was Nehru’s official residence for 16 years until his death in 1964.

While the Congress has accused the Narendra Modi government of trying to erase the former Prime Minister’s legacy, here’s a list of several institutions/buildings/structures, etc, named after Nehru:
