Bring details of degrees earned by PM Modi, CIC tells Delhi University

New Delhi: The Central Information Commission (CIC) on Friday directed the universities of Delhi and Gujarat to respond to all RTI applications with regards to PM Narendra Modi's educational qualifications. 

The CIC at the same time also directed the PMO to facilitate their searches and disclosures regarding the same. 

On Thursday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to CIC to make public the information pertaining to PM Modi's educational qualification. 

"But I have come to know that you have refused to put the degrees of PM Narendra Modi in the public domain. I have no problem if information related to me is made public. The people of this country want to know the truth," Kejriwal had written to CIC yesterday.

"There are allegations that Narendra Modi does not have any degree. The people of the country want to know the truth. Despite that you have refused to make records regarding his degree public. Why did you do this? This is wrong," Kejriwal said in the letter.

Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu directed the PMO to file a report with information on how many degrees does PM Modi possess and in which years were they issued.
