Addressing a press conference, Shah said, “We are putting both PM’s degrees (Bachelor of Arts from DU & MA from Gujarat university) in public domain. Arvind Kejriwal tried to turn a blatant lie into truth and create confusion among public by saying PM’s degrees are fake.”

Shah attacked Delhi chief minister saying Kejriwal had “not only lowered down the standards of public life but has also defamed the nation across the world.”

Shah said, “I will write a letter to Kejriwal ji so that he is reassured. Arvind Kejriwal ji must apologize to entire nation and must clarify on what grounds he levelled such serious allegations.”

Joining Shah in the media interaction was also Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, who said that “making such public statements, attacking someone without checking the facts is a very lowly thing to do.”

However, Aam Aadmi Party, was quick to rubbish the degrees shown by Shah and Jaitley as fake.

It was quoted by ANI as saying, “PM’s degrees shown by Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley are fake and forged.”

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, said, “Docs in DU hv been sealed. BJP presents Farzi docs in a PC n gets real records sealed? Why? Implement CIC order. Allow inspection.(sic)”

Referring to Modi’s name on certificate as ‘Narendra Damoderdas Modi,’ the party said, “The name on mark-sheet is Narendra Kumar Damodar Das Modi, where as on degree it is Narendra Damodar Das Modi. Whenever someone changes name, he or she has to do it through affidavit. Where’s Modi’s affidavit? It’s clear the degrees are forged.”

AAP leader, Ashutosh said, “Amit Shah, Arun Jaitley tried but were caught red-handed. They need to show affidavit through which PM changed name in degree. The graduating year on PM’s marksheet is different from the year on his degree certificate.”

He added, “Mark sheet shows 1977, and Degree shows year as 1978. How is this possible?”

Aam Aadmi Party, last week, had accused PM Modi of lying saying the BA degree published by newspapers was fake.

Kejriwal had also written to the DU urging it to put up details of PM Modi’s degree on its website for the public and make sure that the degree documents were “safe”, hinting at attempts to “destroy” records.

The CIC last month had directed both DU and GU to make the degrees of Modi’s educational qualifications available to Kejriwal.

From the degrees shown, Modi has secured third division in BA while he got 1st division in MA.
