The BJP on Monday presented proof of PM Narendra Modi’s degrees, to address Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s allegations about the PM’s educational qualifications.
“Kejriwal has repeatedly written letters to the CIC, the PMO etc;, to propagate a lie – that PM Modi’s degrees are fake,” BJP chief Amit Shah said in a press conference in the capital. “I am hereby presenting the PM’s degrees – both his BA and MA degrees,” Shah said while displaying the degrees.
“We are putting both PM’s degrees (Bachelor of Arts from Delhi University & MA from Gujarat University) in the public domain,” the BJP chief said.
Kejriwal had on Friday claimed that Delhi University’s (DU) records showed that PM Modi had never enrolled in the university, contradicting the PM’s claim that he obtained his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from there.
“I will write a letter to Kejriwalji so that he is reassured,” Shah said. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley who was also present with Shah said public discourse has “stooped so low” in the wake of baseless allegations by Kejruwal and his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He added that Kejriwal’s allegations are coming “from a party whose MLAs are prosecuted for disclosing fake degrees.”
