Delhi Law Minister’s fake degree: Kejriwal takes action; asks Tomar to explain allegations

Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, today demanded explanation from the state law minister, Jitender Singh Tomar, after a Bihar-based university informed Delhi High Court that Tomar’s law degree is fake.

A report published in a newspaper said that an inquiry report was filed before the court by the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University. The report stated that the serial number of the provisional certificate in the university records showed the name of some other person in a different stream of study and not that of Tomar.

However, Tomar denied all the allegations and said, “A fabricated case based on lies cannot be a reason to resign. My degree is 100 per cent genuine, I have all documents to prove it.”

Acting on the petition, the court said yesterday that Tomar used a “false and bogus” degree to become an advocate. The court has asked the minister to answer by August 20.

On the other hand, Congress leader, Ajay Maken, asked Kejriwal to intervene in the issue and immediately sack Tomar.

“These things were brought to the notice of Arvind Kejriwal by Prashant Bhushan and other leaders. If Arvind Kejriwal fails to remove the law minister and take moral responsibility than day after tomorrow, we will hold a massive demonstration outside the Delhi Secretariat,” said Maken.
