Newly elected DU President Ankiv Baisoya of ABVP submitted fake degree, Twitterati declare him future PM and Union Minister


Days after getting elected as the new president of the Delhi University Students’ Union, Ankiv Baisoya of the RSS’s student wing ABVP, has found himself in a considerable spot of bother. Several media reports have said that Baisoya submitted fake marksheet and certificate for admission in the DU from Thiruvalluvar University in Tamil Nadu.

The revelation was made after the Congress’s student wing, the NSUI, in Tamil Nadu reportedly wrote to the college asking for the authenticity of Baisoya’s marksheet. The university, said media reports, stated that his degree was fake.

NSUI released a letter from Thiruvalluvar University sent in response to a communication from the student’s body, saying the BA certificate submitted by Baisoya from the university was fake.


ABVP, however, said the university allowed Baisoya’s admission after due verification of document submitted by him. In a statement, the ABVP termed the NSUI allegation “propaganda”.

“Delhi University gave admission to Ankiv Baisoya after due verification of its documents. It’s the process of DU. Even today DU has all the right to verify documents of any student enrolled in university. But it’s not the job of NSUI to provide certificates to any person. DU has all the right to verify documents of not only Ankiv but all DUSU office bearers to stop rumours in future,” PTI quoted a statement by the ABVP.

Meanwhile, Twitterati have begun poking fun at the ABVP leader likening his notoriety to that of the fake degree charges levelled against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet colleague, Smriti Irani.
