New Delhi: Delhi court on Thursday has adjourned the case filed on Union Minister Smriti Irani about her fake degree until October 1.
Irani had provided information related to her educational qualifications in affidavits to the Election Commission to fight in various elections.
In June last year, freelance writer Ahmed Khan filed a complaint against the minister for providing contradictory affidavits about her educational qualifications during different elections.
Khan’s lawyer had told the court that Irani, in her affidavit for 2004 Lok Sabha elections, stated her educational qualification as B.A. from Delhi University (school of correspondence).
However, while filing an affidavit in her Rajya Sabha nomination papers from Gujarat in 2011, she said her highest educational qualification was B.com, Part 1 (correspondence course) from Delhi University.
