While Tomar confessed to the forgery, Irani became the centre of a raging controversy. More so, because of her slippery statements that involved the mention of Yale University. Following the speculations, PM Narendra Modi’s brother Prahlad demanded a probe into her degrees. AAP and Congress were already asking the Centre to verify her degrees.

The final decision will be out on August 28, 2015. As the whole nation awaits the court’s orders, twitter is brimming with comments on the same. NewsGram presents some of the popular ones:
