Aam Aadmi Party should be ashamed of its law minister’s whose fake law degree was proved correct in court by Bihar University.
The incident shows how far AAP is filled with yes-men with fraud degrees in a party that boasts of many educated MLAs than any other party.
Arvind Kejriwal’s Delhi cabinet law minister Jitender Singh Tomar had faked his law degree means the party’s so-called verification process before giving a party ticket to contest is not accurate.
With this case, it can now safely be said that the party has excelled in giving the party tickets to those who have fake and false background and the leadership willingly blinked in its desire to wrest the government by hook or crook.
The controversy came up when a Bihar University’s statement in the Delhi High Court said that there was no record of Mr Tomar’s law degree. The varsity said the serial number on Mr Tomar’s law certificate shows a “different person’s name from a different stream.” OMG!
Tomar retorted saying, “My degree is 100 per cent genuine, I have all documents to prove it.” Does it mean Bihar university report submitted in the court was wrong? Or did he get duped with a fake certificate that was sold at a very high price as “genuine”?
It should not come as a surprise for anybody aware of Bihar’s educational system that is afflicted with fraud and fake certificates. The court has asked the minister to respond by August 20.
“The law minister must be sacked,” demanded Congress leader Ajay Maken, who said his party would hold a demo outside Kejriwal’s office, if he fails to remove the minister. In fact, there should be a bigger probe on Bihar’s education system and all certificates issued by Bihar board and universities should be re-checked.
The UPSC should also re-check the certificates of all its Bihar candidates as most of them hold similar certificates from these universities, and reliably some could be fake. Are we allowing Bihar fraud spread its ugly face on rest of the country?
Ironic, but Tomar is the second law minister to embarrass AAP. Last time, law minister Somnath Bharti had conducted midnight raid at a south Delhi colony that targeted Nigerian women and eroded support to the party considerably. This time, the second law minister rose to the occasion with a fake degree.
AAP should fight such inner enemies fast, otherwise its claim to fight for a corrupt-free governance holds no ground. The government agencies should now double check all the certificates produced by Bihar and preferably all Bihar certificates should be available online in digital form for checking by prospective employers.
