Union HRD Minister Smriti Z Irani has reacted to the step by the Delhi University to suspend five officials of the School of Open Learning for allegedly leaking her BA admit card.

The TV actor-turned-politician took to Twitter to express her opinion, saying she has requested the Delhi University Vice Chancellor to reinstate the officials.

Meanwhile, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh questioned the suspension of the officials. On Twitter, the Congress leader, who recently faced a controversy over her relationship with a TV anchor, questioned if any one would stand up for the officials. He also took a dig at the new HRD Minister, saying she should reveal her real educational qualification.

    Purpose of affidavit is to inform voters about important details of the candidate so that they can make informed choice. I don't think even one voter would have voted differently if affidavit has shown her educational qualification as even 10th standard. The debate wasting precious TV time just shocking with top Supreme Court lawyers haranguing us everyday for several days.

      Good, stage managed steps. DU officials tried their hand in sycophancy. Smriti is now showing her bigheartedness.

        SMRITIJI WOULD EXPOSE CONGIS WITH UGC AND EDUCATION SCAMS. DIGVIJAY IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS BY TALKING ABOUT HER QUALIFICATIONS. SHE IS A DYNAMIC LEADER AND SHE WOULD PROVE BETTER HRD MINISTER THAN THOSE OXFORD, CAMBRIDGE AND HARVARD CHOWKIDARS WHO WERE SERVING MADAM THAN IMPROVING THE EDUCATION SYSTEM.

          This Irani is utterly unfit to be hrd minister. If modi wanted to reward her for whatsoever work she has done for the party, there were other ministries like mom and child healthcare. But hrd for her is disgusting. What about the bio data and ppt presentations. Modi scored a self goal in choosing a ministry head.

            Smriti while you might feel public life is up for scrutiny but that does not allow for employees to break university rules and not be penalized the defined penalty. By asking leniency you are sending wrong message to all citizens and specially wrong message to children. Please let rules work and if you don't like rules change them as a legislator but dont influence their implementation.By the way I believe Smriti is fully capable of doing her job and actually am glad to see her in the role she is but disagree her personal appeal.

              HRD minister has done well to ask Delhi University VC to reinstate the suspended officials. What she should have done already, but has not done yet is submit her resignation for her false affidavit. Is this a sample of good governance that the BJP promised?

                Dig vijay finally lives up to his name, and takes a 'dig'! How one wishes that Dig vijay had 'dug' into his Master's background, and checked whether the "joker" whom he and his party were touting as the future Prime Minister had even gone to school during recess time!

                  Digvijay why don't you enjoy with your mistresses? Politics is not for you. You are best suited for sycophancy & having mistresses
