AAP Tuesday alleged Delhi University Registrar Tarun Das, who termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BA degree as “genuine”, is “under pressure” from the Centre to authenticate “forged” degree and mark sheets and indulging in a “cover-up operation”.

“When we went to DU, the VC and the Registrar both refused to meet us. Now we know why? They were busy saving the PM. It is not a coincidence that just after we came back from DU, the Registrar gave a byte to a news channel that blatantly favours the Modi government.

“But let me say this that the cover-up operation will not last long. The names of those involved in fabrication of degrees will be made public. Twice we have been to DU. Why is it shying away from producing documents and inspecting the whole process?” AAP leader Ashutosh said.

“It’s beyond comprehension why the DU is not complying with the CIC order and allowing inspection of these documents,” he said.

The AAP leader said the “weak defence” put forth by the Registrar was “shrouded” in secrecy, which “strengthens the fact that the DU is under pressure of the central government to authenticate a forged degree and mark sheets.”

“A look at the three documents shows that only Modi’s mark sheet has marks typed on it, whereas the other two mark sheets have marks handwritten. Not just that, both the other mark sheets have signatures of both, the person who prepared the mark sheets and the person who checked them.

“But Modi’s marksheet does not have signatures of the person who prepared the mark sheet. It only bears signatures of the person who checked the mark sheet. It clearly shows that Modi’s mark sheet released by BJP is a forged document,” he claimed.

An AAP leader, among others, had filed an RTI application seeking inspection of 14 records including the enrollment register, the degree register, the convocation register.

“BJP President Amit Shah and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley also claimed that Modi stayed at the ABVP office during that period. The Indira Gandhi government had clamped Emergency in 1975, which continued for 19 months.

“By Modi’s own admission, he was underground during this period and was living in disguise as a Sikh. Is it possible that he wrote the exam with his real identity in the disguise as a Sikh? The office of ABVP was also sealed during the Emergency period. How is it possible that Modi stayed in that sealed office?” Ashutosh said.

      My sympathies are with AAP supporters. Having to bear with these bunch of senile jokers. Unable to handle Delhi. Trying desperately to save the Italian mafia family.

        AAP is governing or their job is to attack others 24x7. Normally in other states, the ruling party does something and the opposition criticizes., Ruling party tries to maintain harmony and the opposition protests, but here it is reverse. AAP are bunch of jokers.

          I never knew Express will be reduced to such a low status. They are publishing ramblings of Ashutosh verbatim? all in the hope of getting a pie of 600 cr media spend from AAP?lt;br/gt;Till last week the marks were OK but it were for another Narendra Modi from Alwar? Now, when the DU and BJP has confirmed the marks appear to be forged??lt;br/gt;Two marksheets have hand written numbers and one has typed marks. What he doesn't say is that the final year marks are typed. A fare policy adopted by university in 1978.lt;br/gt;The errors in names are due to the fact that they are hand written by calligraphers, may or may not be in university roles and certainly not in part of the registrar's office.lt;br/gt;I remember an instance when a student had a wrong birth date. His father requested to the school and they agreed to "reduce the age of the student". The father was expecting 1980 changed to 1981. The staff however "reduced" the year of birth from 1980 to 1979.
