After targeting Union minister Smriti Irani on her educational qualifications, the Congress on Saturday questioned rural development minister Gopinath Munde on the same count, alleging that he "graduated in 1976 from a college established in 1978".



"Social media is discussing the big achievement of BJP leader & RD Minister Mr Munde? He graduated in 1976 from a college established in 1978," Congress general secretary Shakeel Ahmad tweeted.



Munde's affidavit for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls available on the Election Commission website mentions that he did his BJL degree from New Law College, Pune in 1976.



Pune's New Law College, as per its own website was established in 1978.



Repeated attempts to reach Munde over telephone and text messages got no response from him.



The Congress has launched a scathing attack against Irani soon after she assumed charge as HRD minister, alleging that she was "not even a graduate".



Ahmad's tweets comes after AICC general secretary and communication department chairman Ajay Maken ridiculed Prime Minister's cabinet for having an HRD minister who was not even a graduate.



"What a Cabinet of Modi? HRD Minister (Looking after Education) Smriti Irani is not even a graduate! Look at her affidavit at ECI site pg 11!," Maken had tweeted recently.
