Narendra Modi education row: FM Arun Jaitley shows DU degree, tears into Arvind Kejriwal
In the wake of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal raising questions about PM Narendra Modi's education qualifications, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) fielded its two most senior stalwarts in the form of Finance Minister ARun Jaitley and party President Amit Shah on Monday to 'show' Modi's Delhi University BA degree. "The people of this country have a right to know how educated their prime minister is," Arvind Kejriwal had said - Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader alleged that Modi didn't have a BA degree from Delhi University. In his comment, Amit Shah said, "Very unfortunate that we have to hold this press meet to clarify PM's educational qualification status." In FM Arun Jaitley speech today, here are the top 5 points to note as he tore into Arvind Kejriwal: (Twitter)
1. Arun Jaitley: Arvind Kejriwal's statements are blatant lies and irresponsible.
