Degree row: AAP refuses to back down, says BJP displayed PM Modi’s fake BA and MA degrees

New Delhi:Minutes after BJP President Amit Shah and senior leader Arun Jaitley displayed PM Modi’s BA and MA degrees, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday alleged that the degrees were forged.

Addressing media, AAP leader Ashutosh said, “PM’s degrees shown by Amit Shah & Arun Jaitley are fake and forged.”
Ashutosh also claimed that the name of PM is different in both the degrees of Bachelors and Masters. He also alleged that the graduating year on PM’s BA marksheet is different from the year on his degree certificate.

“They need to show affidavit through which PM Modi changed name ,” said Ashutosh.
The senior AAP leader also demanded an apology from Jaitley and Shah.

Earlier, attacking Arvind Kejriwal on Modi’s educational qualification status, Shah and Jaitley displayed his degrees and demanded a public apology from the Delhi Chief Minister.
Forcefully rejecting the fake degree allegations, the two leaders accused Kejriwal of lowering the public discourse by spreading unsubstantiated canards against the Prime Minister.
Jaitley even said the kind of allegations that have been levelled against Modi threatens federal polity in the country and such attempts should be defeated strongly while challenging the Delhi Chief Minister to verify his claims.
“The politics of adventurism is being treated as a substitute for governance,” he said, mounting a strong attack on Kejriwal.
Shah said Kejriwal has lowered the public discourse and that he has defamed the country before the whole world by levelling baseless allegations against Modi.
“It is very unfortunate that we have to hold this press meet to clarify the Prime Minister’s educational qualification status,” he said.
