The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday accused the Central Government of indulging in vendetta politics, and said that the court and not the police should decide whether Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar’s papers are forged.
“Government is indulging in vendetta politics. Court should decide whether his papers are forged or not; the police has no business to get into this,” AAP spokesperson, Ashutosh told the media here.
Ashutosh further added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants dictatorship in the country.
“It is very evident from the way the government is functioning that Narendra Modi does not want a democracy but dictatorship,” he added.
Tomar was arrested by Delhi Police this morning and taken to the Hauz Khas Police Station in connection with the fake certificate row.
Tomar has been charged with submitting fake certificates while filing the nomination for Delhi Assembly polls earlier this year.
The Tilka Manjhi University in Bhagalpur, Bihar, from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his law degree, had earlier stated that the record of his provisional certificate did not exist in the university’s record. (ANI)
