Delhi Law Minister Tomar denies fake certificate chargetext_fields
New Delhi: Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar on Tuesday denied charges that his provisional law certificate was "fabricated" and said he would soon get all the records and make everything clear.
"All the allegations made against me are baseless. If I would have committed anything wrong then I would not have been constantly coming to my office. Very soon I will get all my records from the university and make everything clear," Tomar told reporters in the Delhi secretariat.
Tomar also holds the portfolios of tourism, art and culture, as well as home.
Earlier on Tuesday, Congress leader Ajay Maken said on Twitter: "AAP Delhi law minister's law degree found fake. Should be sacked immediately and vacate assembly seat for fresh election!"
His comments came after a Bihar-based university from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his degree, on Monday told the Delhi High Court that the provisional certificate was not "genuine" and "does not exist in the university's record".
The serial number of the certificate in the record showed the name of some other person and not of Tomar, according to the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar.
