Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal escalated the conflict over Narendra Modi’s educational qualifications by writing a letter to the Delhi University Vice-Chancellor and asking him to make Prime Minister’s degree public.
Kejriwal also posted a copy of the letter on Twitter. “It is being said that the Prime Minister does not have any BA degree from the Delhi University,” Kejriwal wrote in his letter to V-C Yogesh Tyagi.
Kejriwal questioned that there was no proof of Modi’s BA degree from DU, “How did he get admission for MA (in Gujarat University)?”
The Delhi Chief Minister then asked the V-C to take proper steps to ensure the safety of the documents for Modi’s BA degree. “It would be better if you put the degree on the (DU) website. After all, the people of this country have a right to know about how educated their Prime Minister is. And if there are such serious allegations over the PM’s degree, then truth should come out,” he wrote.
This comes when Gujarat University had on Sunday said Modi had an MA degree and had scored 62.3 percent as an external student of the varsity. .
The Central Information Commission had directed DU and Gujarat University to provide the information to Kejriwal, who had recently criticised the functioning of the transparency panel.
On Wednesday, Aam Aadmi Party leaders Ashutosh, Raghav Chadha and Ashish Khetan had met Delhi University authorities to seek proof of Prime Minister Modi’s graduation degree and had claimed that the varsity asked them to approach PMO for information.
