Gujarat University has rejected an RTI request on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s educational qualification.
An Ahmedabad based RTI activist had filed a request before the university asking them to furnish the details on the students, who enrolled there for Masters degree between 1981 and 1984.
The RTI activist further added that his request was for all those students, who attended classes in Master of Arts either via correspondence or regular courses both in English and Gujarati languages.
The university sent a one-line reply in Gujarati, ” Under RTI act of 2005, this information can’t be made public.’
The activist, who has requested to be anonymous, told Jantakareporter.com that this was the period PM Modi had claimed to complete his Masters degree adding that he had deliberately asked for details around all students as he feared the university would never entertain specific request on the prime minister.
Jantakareporter.com had earlier reported how both the PMO and appellate authority had rejected separate RTI requests seeking to confirm PM Modi”s educational qualification.
