BJP MP from South Delhi, Ramesh Bidhuri, on Thursday demanded the Centre’s intervention in the ongoing row over the alleged fabricated degree obtained by Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar.
Raising the issue in the Zero Hour in the Lok Sabha, Bidhuri said it was high time the Union government stepped in and arrested the AAP leader after the university from where he claims to have received his degree told Delhi High Court that it was fake.

”The university has given an affidavit in the court that the degree is fake. He remains the Delhi Law Minister. The central government should intervene now. It should dismiss him, arrest him and put him in jail,” Bidhuri said.
Claiming that the Centre was in “charge” of Delhi, Bidhuri sought its intervention.
In response to a petition, which alleged that Tomar had enrolled himself as an advocate on the basis of a “false and bogus” degree, the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University in Bihar had submitted an affidavit in the High Court stating that his provisional certificate was “fabricated”.
