Senior AAP leader and Rajya Sabha member Shri Sanjay Singh took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi following the recent Gujarat High Court decision on withholding information about his educational degrees. The court had set aside the decision of the Central Information Commission that had directed the PMO to provide details of PM Modi’s degrees in response to CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal’s appeal. The court in turn imposed a fine of Rs. 25,000 over this suit.
At a press conference held today, Shri Sanjay Singh criticised the Prime Minister for making ridiculous statements and claimed that he had little knowledge of science or history-geography. He further stated that the Prime Minister, who had been elected and sent by 140 crore people, should let people know about his degree and should not get them fined for asking about it.
He emphasised that the government’s failure to provide information about PM Modi’s degree was a matter of concern and asserted that it indicates a lack of transparency and accountability in the government.
“It is high time for the Prime Minister to come clean and be transparent about his educational qualifications. It is unacceptable for the government to refuse to disclose such information,” he said.
