Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal fired a fresh salvo at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after Gujarat High Court dismissed his plea seeking copies of the latter’s degrees.
“Gujarat High Court’s order to not show PM Modi’s degree certificates has increased curiousity to know his qualifications,” he said, adding, “People have only two answers–either they’ll think of PM being too proud or that his degrees could be forged.”
Kejriwal said, “We live in a democracy. We should have the freedom to question and seek information.” Speaking further, he said being less educated or uneducated is not a crime and elucidated many people cannot complete their education due to financial constraints.
“Our country has not progressed as well as it should have in the 75 years since Independence. People today are impatient and want rapid progress and the youth is aspirational and for the same, a country’s PM should be educated,” he said.
