On Wednesday, the AAP leader said Delhi University refused to share the details of Modi’s Bachelor of Arts degree and told them to approach the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) instead.

The Central Information Commission (CIC) had on April 29 directed the universities of Delhi and Gujarat to respond to a letter from Kejriwal, which it treated as a Right to Information application on Modi’s educational qualifications.

Earlier, Delhi University declined to provide information regarding Modi’s BA degree despite several RTI requests.

The university cited its inability to get the information without a roll number as the reason for the denial.
