No political pressure, acting in accordance with law, says DU over PM Degree row

“Few AAP leaders visited the university and met Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi over issue of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s degree. The VC told them that RTI cell of the university shall act in accordance with the law but it is incorrect to say that the university is acting under any political pressure,” DU registrar Tarun Das said.

The clarification by DU came a day after an AAP delegation visited the university demanding that they be allowed to examine the records of Modi’s BA degree but they had to return empty handed.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh alleged that Tyagi asked them to “understand his position saying there is a lot of pressure on him on the issue”.

The AAP has been alleging that the Prime Minister’s BA and MA degrees were forged and there were many “glaring discrepancies in them”, including in his name and total marks, reported ToI.
