According to a news channel, the former Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav stated that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s claim of being kept in dark over MLA Jitender Signh Tomar’s fake law degree was baseless. Yadav said Kejriwal knew of Tomar’s fake degree but did not conduct an inquiry.
Yadav said, “We had informed Arvind Kejriwal about Jitender Singh Tomar’s fake degree in February. I am surprised. Now they are saying they were taken for a ride. Kejriwal did not even conduct an inquiry. We had raised issues about at least 25 candidates.”
Former Delhi law minister Jitender Singh Tomar who has been in the eye of the storm regarding the authenticity of his degree is currently lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail.
