I’ll wait now till conclusive proof emerges re: Modi’s MA degree and his topping the university. These two remain highly questionable claims, based on evidence provided to date and the history of Modi’s lying through his nose throughout his life.
But there are more important things than Modi’s sordid character. But before moving on to more important things, two emails I recently sent out – for the public record.
Subject: No prize for guessing who said this: “University में मैं पहला आ गया!”
A degree is not required for becoming a political leader (nor should it be).
However, there is a serious and more basic issue involved with Modi’s degrees.
1) He has provided what appears to be a fake Master’s degree to the whole world:
His Master’s degree is in a fake discipline: “entire” political science. There is no such course offered by Gujarat University: http://www.sabhlokcity.com/2016/05/gujarat-university-does-not-offer-a-course-in-master-of-arts-entire-political-science-i-want-to-apply/
There are nearly ten reasons to question the authenticity of Modi’s “master’s degree”.
2) But he has also claimed “University में मैं पहला आ गया!” : http://bit.ly/1WoBTK9 but never provided any proof. Remember, his BA degree was in third class (assuming that degree is genuine).
Modi should prove that he actually topped the university in this fake discipline.
All my proofs of topping the university in BSc are public for many years: What is taking him so long? http://sanjeev.sabhlokcity.com/certificates.html
Modi has brazenly lied at every step of his life. E.g. http://1drv.ms/SrOWMI
He can easily top any university of the world in one thing: lies. Master of the Art of Lying.
It appears that some readers, including senior reader Col. UB Singh, have not bothered to check for themselves what I’m saying. I’m saying that Modi had himself claimed to be a university topper. At least spend a minute to view his own claims: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1VBUAzbcfw.
I have no doubt that he could have been a topper – despite the colossal ignorance he often displays in his speeches. I’ve also got no doubt that he could have an MA in political science. This issue has been created by Modi himself. I understand tens of RTI requests have been lodged on this matter across India. It was a trivial exercise for him to publish his degrees.
Finally, after AAP chased him down, he has published poor quality black and white photocopies, including one photocopy of a duplicate degree. The duplicate degree in particular is extremely suspicious. I’ve compared it with genuine degrees from the Gujarat University and found it to be extremely dodgy. No date of issue, fonts and placement entirely different; and the word “entire” before political science. I’ve asked anyone in India who has similar degree to provide me with a scan.
I think this is a storm in a tea cup that is distracting from key failures of Modi. However, it is a matter of his character and integrity. He should prove that he topped the university. That we have a PM who claims to be a topper but then produces a photocopied duplicate degree that doesn’t match any other degrees, is a very poor show.
Anyway, I’m going to get on with the job of identifying the reforms that India needs. Modi has failed India comprehensively – as he was always going to.
