Delhi(PTI): AAP leaders Ashutosh, Raghav Chadha and Ashish Khetan went to DU with an authorisation letter from CM Kejriwal to collect information on PM Modi’s graduation degree.
Three Aam Aadmi Party leaders on Wednesday met Delhi University authorities to seek proof of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s graduation degree and claimed that the varsity asked them to approach PMO for the information.
While the Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi did not comment on today’s meeting, he maintained that the university’s RTI department is looking into the issue.
The AAP leaders’ visit to the university came a week after the Central Information Commission directed DU and Gujarat University to provide the information to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who had recently criticised the functioning of the transparency panel.
Gujarat University had on Sunday said Modi had an MA degree and had scored 62.3 per cent as an external student of the varsity.
The party leaders including Ashutosh, Raghav Chadha and Ashish Khetan had gone to DU this afternoon with an authorisation letter from the CM to collect the information. After nearly an hour-long meeting with DU Registrar Tarun Das and Chief Public Information Officer Meenakshi Sahay, the leaders claimed that the administration refused to share any details and asked them to approach Prime Minister’s Office instead. Kejriwal took to Twitter alleging that PM’s degree was “forged” and that is why DU was refusing to share it. “DU refuses to show records of PM’s degree. Why? My info-he did not do BA from DU. No records in DU. Degree published by some papers forged,” he said in a series of tweets. “No records in DU related to his enrollment, his degree, his marksheets and convocation.Why is DU refusing info abt PM’s degree? Becoz he does not have it,” the Chief Minister added.
