Hundreds of angry protesters belonging to Aaam Aadmi Party have gathered outside the house of the Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani.
They are demanding the resignation of Irani for possessing fake degree. AAP says that Irani must quit on the grounds of morality as the charges against her were ‘serious.
Police say that they have arrangements in place should AAP workers decide to take law in their own hands. The use of water canon can’t be ruled out to contain the protesters.
