Former Delhi Law Minister, Jitender Singh Tomar’s forged degree might result in his expulsion from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
AAP, which had been backing Tomar so far, has become reluctant to comment anymore.
“His LLB degree is not a problem but there are definitely doubts about his BSc degree. CM Arvind Kejriwal is also upset, especially since Tomar had made a representation to him and assured him that his papers were in order. So far there were just allegations against him but now he seems unable to prove anything,” said sources.
A senior member of the party has told the entire party to take this as a warning that no further deceit would be tolerated. According to sources, Commando Surinder Singh, another member whose degree was under the scanner was given the benefit of doubt but in case of any adverse comments, he too may find himself in trouble.
The Delhi BJP on Thursday staged a protest outside Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s residence here against the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash and demanded Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation.
Hundreds of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers assembled outside Sisodia’s residence on Mathura Road and raised slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government.
The protest was led by Delhi BJP General Secretary Kuljeet Singh Chahal.
Following the allegation, the IAS Association on Tuesday took the decision that officers would not meet or talk even over the phone to the Chief Minister, his ministers or MLAs till Kejriwal apologised and took action
