A day after AAP leaders urged Delhi University (DU) Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi to share documents related to the graduation degree of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia wrote a letter to the V-C and sought time for joint inspection of the documents.

“I think this is the best way to put an end to this controversy,” wrote Sisodia and asked Tyagi to make time within the next one week. “As the education minister of Delhi, I will come to you. You get documents related to the PM’s degree to your chamber and we will inspect them. We will share the conclusions in a joint press conference and upload the documents on the website,” said Sisodia.

He wrote that if the V-C felt the Prime Minister may have an objection, he could write to Modi to seek his permission. “I have full faith that the PM will have no objection over this,” said Sisodia.

In the two-page letter written in Hindi, Sisodia questioned the DU’s reluctance in making the PM’s degree public. “While the ongoing controversy is tarnishing the reputation of the university, it is also raising doubts in the minds of students and teachers over why the university is not proudly presenting the degree documents and saying that the PM is an alumnus,” Sisodia wrote.

Universities across the world “take pride” in having heads of state in the list of their former students, said Sisodia, and added, “If the PM has in fact procured a degree from the university, it should be a matter of pride”.

However, he said the way DU authorities were “hiding facts pertaining to Modi’s degree”, it has been sending a wrong message to the world. “People are naturally wondering that if the PM has got a degree from DU, why is that being hidden,” wrote Sisodia.

    Furthermore , the matter relates to 1974 -1978, a period when Delhi existed a UT without legislature, and therefore no education minister. Again Sisodia cannot demand to see records as education minister because he has no power as education minister ...
