Delhi court directs EC, DU to reveal Smriti Iran’s degree, twitter trends #SmritiMadamDegreeDikhao


A lower court in Delhi on Friday directed the Election Commission and Delhi University (DU) to reveal Union HRD minister Smriti Irani’s educational qualification record.

This came after a complaint was filed by freelance writer Ahmed Khan against her for allegedly misleading the EC with her election affidavits.

Like her ‘mentor’ PM Narendra Modi, Irani’s educational qualification has been an enigma to the social media users. Her rivals have never missed an opportunity to target her and Modi expressing their outrage on what they say a ’12th pass running India’s education ministry.’

No sooner had the news been reported, the HRD minister’s detractors took to twitter to express their thoughts on this latest development relating to her educational qualification.

Within minutes, the hashtag #SmritiMadamDegreeDikhao became a top twitter trend. Not so long, the hashtag DegreeDikhaoPMSaab had trended for several days on twitter after reported how Gujarat University had rejected the RTI request on PM’s Masters degree.

Here are some of the tweets on hashtag #SmritiMadamDegreeDikhao
