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!

                    Thanks to Mrs. Smruti Irani for advising DU to reinstate suspended lower level officers for revealing the truth. I hope in BJP ruled India, telling truth will not be a crime. Secondly what highly educated HRD ministers of last 10 years have done to quality, standard, corruption, politicised, costly education system of India.

                      Excellent. Go ahead. Learn and do well. Kamaraj from TN was not educated but he successfully ruled the state and he was a non-corrupt person

                        Millions of us BJP supporters have started feeling that Diggu is better - atleast he restricted Amrita to his house and did not make her Cabinet minister in Cong Govt.

                          Mad dog Diggy can not stop barking. It looks like he is still licking Italian barmaid feet after heavy defeat in the election.

                            The DU officials need to be suspended. What rights have they got to reveal the personal matters of a student. Criminal act should be slapped on them. Diggy is right in asking for the educational status of Smrithi.GOI should come clean by giving the details of Smrithi; Sonia; Rahul.Also Diggy's marriage status to be confirmed as per Hindu act.

                              Mr. Digvijay Singh, there cannot be man more shameless than you are. At your old age you have lured somebody's wife and made illicit ual relationship with her. You should have been in jail. Being a Congress leader you should have hung your head in shame. How dare you ask Smriti Irani about her educational qualification? What is your Sonia's qualification? She ruled India for 10 years to take the country down the hill. As far as we know, she was a mere waitress working in a restaurant when she jerked Rajiv.

                                  Dear Diggi Your real face has come out into picture. You are openly supporting leaking of any doent from any department. DU is a responsible insution where all doents and information pertaining to anything or any student/professor are kept in secret custody. Inspite of talking against leakage of doents, you are supporting their action and talking against their suspension. What a shame on your part. That is why people have given a befit mandate on your face. Shame Shame

                                    One would think that after the aam janta's clear message to Congress and s like Dig Vijay would refrain from petty plays and work towards betterment of the party but surely 'old' habits die hard! Having now nothing better to do than flirt with the new beau and not much else Dig Vijay begins with his trivial pursuits shamelessly. Surely reminds me with one with a Peter Pan syndrome! Please grow up and prove your self to be a mature adult!

                                      For willful violation of rules of University this erring staff sud be suitably punished. It is administrative matter of University. DU sud not come in influence of any. It has already damaged its retion. Any thing can be done in it for consideration.

                                            A minister with good qualification is really good. But also lack of education is also not at all problem as far as a minister is concerned. But here the real problem is not whether she has enough qualification or not, but why did she faked her qualification while she presented her papers in 2009 and now in 2014. That is really bad and pathetic, a person with such a motive is really bad and not fit to be not just a minister but also as an MP.
