Since the Gujarat High Court on March 31 set aside a Central Information Commission order asking Gujarat University to give Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal information on Modi’s degree, the AAP has taken the issue to the streets. Posters asking for the PM’s degree to be shown, its “Degree Dikahao” campaign, have been put up in Delhi, and AAP leaders have addressed press conferences asking questions about PM Modi’s BA and MA degrees.

Reacting to the High Court’s decision to not allow him access to the information, Kejriwal had said in a tweet: “Doesn’t the country even have the right to know how educated their PM is? They were opposed to showing his degree in court. Why? Those who demand to see his degree will be fined? What is happening? An illiterate or less educated PM is very dangerous for the country.”

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra had hit back at the AAP chief, saying: “What Kejriwal is doing reflects his frustration. He is naturally frustrated as his government ministers are in jail on charges of corruption and being involved in a liquor scam. His comments are a consequence of this.”
