Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s BA degree is authentic, Delhi University confirmed today, putting end allegations of glaring discrepancies raised by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders along with their followers without any proof.
Delhi University also said it has all the records of PM Modi’s graduation while terming as “minor error” the mention of 1979 as his graduation year, though he passed out a year earlier which is 1978.
“We have checked our records and it has been authenticated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s degree is authentic. He cleared the examination in 1978 and was awarded the degree in 1979,” Tarun Das, Delhi University’s registrar said.
When asked about discrepancies in calculation of marks and the marksheets being “typed ones” while other degrees issued by the university during that period had handwritten details, Das said, “it is not possible to comment on every variation. I can only confirm that the degree is genuine”.
The DU clarification came hours after a group of AAP leaders visited the universtiy office to check the PM’s degree. They were told to return on Wednesday.
