New Delhi, March 31 (KMS): Gujarat High Court has imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, for criticizing the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
Arvind Kejriwal said, today, that an illiterate or less educated Prime Minister was dangerous for the country. He said this while reacting to the Gujarat High Court’s decision to set aside an order of the Central Information Commission that had directed the Gujarat University to “search for information” regarding Narendra Modi’s degrees.
In a tweet, Kejriwal said, “Doesn’t the country even have the right to know how educated their PM is? They were opposed to showing his degree in court. Why? Those who demand to see his degree will be fined? What is happening? An illiterate or less educated PM is very dangerous for the country.”
The court imposed a cost of Rs 25,000 on Kejriwal, who had requested information on Modi’s degrees under the RTI (Right to Information) Act. The amount has to be deposited with Gujarat State Legal Services Authority within four weeks.
Earlier, a court in the Surat city of Gujarat had disqualified Rahul Gandhi as Member of Lok Sabha, the lower house of Indian Parliament, for criticising the surname of Narendra Modi.
