New Delhi: Union minister Smriti Irani’s educational qualifications had always been controversial with the opposition claiming that she is not a graduate and Irani rubbishing their claim.
Her poll affidavit revealed that Irani undertook her exams for Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) the first year from Delhi University’s School of Open Learning, but “did not complete the three-year degree course”.
However, the matter has taken a new turn this election season as Irani has accepted on Thursday that she enrolled for an undergraduate course in Delhi University but did not complete it.
Smriti Irani had declared that she had a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree when she filed nomination as a candidate in 2004 elections from Chandni Chowk in Delhi.
Irani had also boasted at a media event in August 2014 that she has a degree from the prestigious Yale University in the US.
