In the wake of the uproar over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's educational qualifications, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written to the Vice-Chancellor of Delhi University, asking him to put the PM's educational degrees on the website.
He also took to Twitter to share the letter.
In a series of tweets on 4 May, Kejriwal alleged that he had no qualms about sharing details of his educational qualifications. In the same breath, he alleged that Delhi University was being hesitant about sharing details of PM Modi's degrees because he did not possess one.
DU refuses to show records of PM's degree. Why? My info- he did not do BA from DU. No records in DU. Degree published by some papers forged— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) May 4, 2016

According to a media report, some of the Aam Aadmi Party leaders - including Ashutosh, Raghav Chadha and Ashish Khetan - met the Chief Public Information Officer (CPIO) of Delhi University, Meenakshi Sahay, seeking evidence of PM Modi's graduation degree from the university.
This comes a week after the Central Information Commission directed the Delhi University and Gujarat University to provide information on PM Modi's degrees.
The order was issued a day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to the Central Information Commission, accusing it of concealing information on Prime Minister Modi's education qualifications and urged the PM to share his educational qualifications.
