NEW DELHI: The Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to the Vice Chancellor of Delhi University on Thursday asking that details of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bachelor of Arts college degree be made public.

"The people of this country have the right to know how educated their prime minister is. And if there are such serious allegations over the PM's degree, then the truth should come out” Kejriwal wrote in a letter to Vice Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi.

Referring to allegations that the prime minister never got a graduation degree, Kejriwal quoted sources as saying that his admission form, mark-sheet and other details are not in the university's records.

AAP have been doggedly pursuing the questions raised on the education of PM Modi, who had said in his 2014 poll affidavit that he had done his BA from Delhi University and MA from the Gujarat University.

Kejriwal further says “As per sources the varsity does not have any admission form, no mark sheet and no degree of the prime minister, which is a matter of grave concern. If he hasn't done his BA (Bachelor of Arts), then how did he do his Masters? It raises suspicion that his MA degree is fake," Kejriwal wrote further in his letter.

“As per a media report the degree of the prime minister might not be safe, if that is the case we request you to take the necessary steps to protect these documents. It will be even better if all the documents are immediately put up on your website," the letter says further.

Treating his demand as an RTI inquiry, the Central Information Commission last week directed the Delhi University and Gujarat University to search and provide information on PM Modi's degrees.

The Gujarat University on Sunday said PM Modi had scored 62.3 per cent in his masters as an external student.
