Modi’s gutter gas video: Arvind Kejriwal takes dig at PM’s questionable educational qualification


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has once again targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his questionable educational qualification.

Responding to a viral video of the prime minister talk about about ‘gutter gas,’ Kejriwal tweeted, “That’s why it’s said that the country’s prime minister should be an educated person.”

In the viral video, posted by a Twitter user, Nikhil, Modi is seen explaining how a tea-seller had used the gas emitted from a gutter to make tea for his business. Recalling the incident fondly, Modi is heard saying, “It’s a simple technology.”

Nikhil, in his tweet, had written sarcastically, “Let this man loose without a script and he can start his own Pogo channel.” His tweet started a Twitter conversation as journalists join in to mock Modi’s idea of relying on naturally produced ‘gutter gas.’ Journalist Shahid Siddiqui wrote, “Oh my God, what a brilliant idea . Now I know why he is such a great leader. Gutter economy/ gutter jobs/ gutter ideas for the nation.”

Journalist Sagarika Ghose chipped in with her own tweet that read, “What a breathtaking scientific breakthrough! Have western scientists discovered this miracle yet?”

Not to be left behind, comedian Kunal Kamra mocked the prime minister by recording his own video.


Modi’s degree has been an enigma for quite some time. While his party said that the prime minister had passed his BA exams in 1978 from the Delhi University, they’ve failed to produce credible evidence to substantiate their claims. The CIC had rejected the contention of the Central Public Information Officer of the University that it was a third party personal information, saying it finds “neither merit nor legality” in it.

Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu, who had earlier ordered the Delhi University to allow inspection of the prime minister’s educational qualifications, was later removed from his responsibility for the HRD ministry.

Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party in particular has consistently been pressing for Modi’s degrees to be made public.

Faced with widespread embarrassment, the BJP had taken an extraordinary step in 2016 when both the party president, Amit Shah and the then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley held a press conference to flash what they claimed were copies of Modi’s degress. Kejriwal had then described the copies of the prime minister’s degrees published in newspapers forged.



  1. Anaerobic(in absence of oxygen) decomposition of organic matters like human faces,cow dung, food waste or else produces some gases known as gutter gas, bio gas, sewer gas ,gober gas ,marsh gas, swamp gas ,landfill gas etc. Gas is mainly composed of methane (50-75%), carbon dioxide (25-50%),hydrogen (0-1%),nitrogen(0-10%) and hydrogen sulphide(0.1-0.5%). Methane (9000kcal/cum), hydrogen (2900 kcal/cum) and hydrogen sulphide(6000 kcal/cum) are combustible gases so gas can be good source of renewable energy.
    Biogas is popular fuel in villages but gutter gas from floating sewer can also be used as a fuel for heating or further refining.
    To use gutter gas we don’t need any gober gas plant but only floating dome/drum can solve the purpose. As sewer water shall continue flows under the dome so input , output or digester are not required just a floating dome, drum, bucket or any other floating utensil can be used as gas holder. Gutter gas stored in the holder can be used as fuel for cooking or else.
