AAP MLA Surinder embroiled in alleged ‘fake degree’ controversy


After Delhi’s Law Minister Jitendra Singh Tomar, another Aam Aadmi party leader Surinder Singh has landed in an ‘alleged fake degree’.

As reported by Janta Ka Reporter three weeks ago, Delhi Cantt MLA Commando Surendra Singh was given notice by Delhi HC on petition filed by BJP’s Karan Singh Tanwar citing an RTI reply by Sikkim University that no one named Surinder Singh was given a degree by it in the year 2012.

A copy of the RTI reply can be seen below:

RTI Reply Surinder Singh
Janta Ka Reporter does not vouch for the authenticity of this letter.

The AAP MLA had given details in his election affidavit that he graduated from Sikkim University in 2012.

Delhi Cantt MLA Commando Surinder Singh could not file his reply on the first notice and now has been given four more weeks to reply.

Reacting to the issue, Surinder said, “I will respond in the court, the truth will be out in the open. BJP will be embarrassed again.”

“I shall present all the documents in the court”, Commando Surinder Singh added.

National spokesperson of Bhartiya Janata Party, Sambit Patra responded to the allegations on Singh by saying, “Surprising that another AAP MLA Surinder Singh is being alleged in the case of forged documents.”

BJP’s Karan Singh Tanwar also criticised Singh as he told a news agency, “He (Singh) has claimed to have various different degrees on various platforms.”

Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar who was earlier embroiled in an “alleged fake degree” controversy was arrested on Tuesday by the Delhi Police and sent to four-day police custody.
