Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has come out with all guns blazing on prime minister Modi’s degree issue. Kejriwal told a press conference on friday that he can assert with “full responsibility” that Delhi University’s records have no mention of “Narendra Damodardas Modi” and that one “Narendra Kumar Mahavir Prasad Modi” had taken admission in 1975.
The Delhi Chief Minister, who have been demanding that Modi’s degrees be placed in public domain, said the issue was not whether the PM was “10th pass or 12th pass” but that he has furnished “fake” certificates and “cheated” the people of the country.
“Firstly he lied in front of the country, secondly he lied in his affidavit and thirdly the degree that is emerging is forged. This is a case of cheating. If there are charges of cheating against a person like PM, then it is a grave matter,” Kejriwal said.
AAP leaders Ashutsoh and Sanjay Singh have also filed an RTI with Delhi University seeking copy of Modi’s application form, copy of enrollment form in Modi’s handwriting, copy of relevant register, copy of his marksheet of each year, copy of convocation list of 1979 and announcement list during convocation.
However, BJP is not too worried as of now.
