By NewsGram Staff Writer

“Just as degrees of AAP MLA and former Delhi Minister Jitender Singh Tomar are being verified, a probe should be carried out into Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s degrees,” said Narendra Modi’s brother, Prahlad in an interaction with reporters in Ghaziabad.

AAP and Congress have been demanding the Centre to probe the charges of false educational qualification against Irani.

When asked about the controversy over the help extended to tainted former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi by Union Minister Sushma Swaraj for travel documents, Prahlad said that it was done on “humanitarian” grounds and the issue should not be unnecessarily hyped.

Prahlad also commented on the issue of black money. He said, “The central government is making all efforts. Black money stashed in India is far more than that in foreign countries.”

Prahlad, who is also the Vice-President of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation (AIFPSDF) also said, “Just as grocery is distributed from ration shops, LPG cylinders should also be supplied through them so that the income of such dealers increases”, suggesting the sale of cylinders from ration shops.
