College Degree Case Delhi Court Case against Smriti Irani maintainable

A Delhi court on Wednesday accepted to hear the case against Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani for allegedly giving “false” information about her educational qualification in affidavits filed with the Election Commission. The Delhi Trial Court took cognizance of complaint filed against Irani and fixed Aug 28 as the date for recording pre-summoning evidence.

The complaint was filed by freelance writer Ahmer Khan alleging that there were several discrepancies in Irani’s affidavits filed before the EC. The complaint said that Irani in her three affidavits while filing nominations for her candidature for Lok Sabha as well as Rajya Sabha polls had purportedly given different details about her educational qualification.

Advocate for the complainant told court that in her affidavit for April 2004 Lok Sabha polls Irani had said that she completed her BA in 1996 from Delhi University (school of correspondence) whereas in another affidavit of July 11, 2011 for contesting Rajya Sabha election from Gujarat she said her highest educational qualification was B.Com part I from the School of Correspondence, DU.

The complaint alleged that in the affidavit filed for nomination of April 16, 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Amethi constituency in Uttar Pradesh, Irani said she had completed Bachelor of Commerce Part-I from School of Open Learning, DU.
