This is in continuation of blogpost No.569 (Click to go to 569). English language has a proverb: "Better late than never!". We should be grateful to the Information Commissioner Mr. M. Sridharacharyulu, and the Gujarat University Vice Chancellor Mr. M.N. Patel, for bringing to a near-close, the issue of allegations about the fact of our beloved Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, obtaining a PG Degree of M.A. Politics. Here is an ND TV News Report (Click to go to ND TV.com to see the news.) which indicates that Shri Modi completed his M.A. Politics Degree in 1983, scoring 62.3%.
Delhi CM wanted details of PM Modi's education to be made public PM Modi, in 2014 polls, declared he had a BA and a Master's degree Haven't been asked to share details: Gujarat University Vice Chancellor.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi completed his post-graduation in Political Science from the Gujarat University with a 62.3% score, Vice Chancellor MN Patel has said amid a row over Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accusing the Central Information Commission of covering up the PM's educational qualifications. Earlier this week, Mr Kejriwal had demanded that this information be made public by the CIC.
The Vice Chancellor has however told NDTV that the university hasn't been approached by anyone seeking this information yet. He also added that the university had earlier turned down the request since rules allowed only individual candidates to seek details of their marks. "For instance X cannot seek details of Y and that is why we had turned down the RTI request. Now that the CIC has issued an order, we will provide details if asked to," he said.
ybrao-a-donkey's humble comments. वैबीराव एक गधे के विनम्र राय . వైబీరావ్ గాడిద వినమ్ర వాణి. You have every right to differ with me. I respect your right. आपको मेरे मत से भिन्न राय रखने के संपूर्ण हक है। मै उस अधिकार को परिपूर्ण रूप से गौरव देता हुँ. మీకు, మీ భిన్నమైన అభిప్రాయాన్ని కలిగిఉండే సంపూర్ణ హక్కు ఉంది. దానిని ఎంతో నేను గౌరవిస్తాను. However, pl. examine this donkey's views also. परन्तु एस गधे के दृष्टिकोण को भी अनुशीलन कीजिये. కానీ ఈ గాడిద దృష్టికోణాన్ని కూడ ఓర చూపుతో కంటజూడుమీ, క్రీగంట జూడమీ.
As the matter has been cleared by a Competent Authority, we can treat the matter as closed, for the time being. Let us hope that Mr. Arvind Kajriwal also will treat the matter as closed, unless he has some other evidence to doubt the disclosure made by the Vice Chancellor, Gujarat University.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, EARLIER DISCLOSURE WOULD HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER
This controversy arose in and around in Aug. 2015. Had this information been furnished by the Gujarat University in Aug 2015 itself or at some other early date, without waiting for instruction of Mr. Sridharacharyulu (Information Commissioner), lot of Media Space and Time could have been saved. People would have had peace of mind at least eight months earlier. By withholding information which ought to have been kept in public domain, giving some technical excuse such as non-availability of Roll No., what did the University gain?
LET US HOPE THAT REGIONAL PASSPORT OFFICER, AHMEDABAD, ALSO CLEARS THE PASSPORT APPLICATION OF MS. JASHODA BEN
It appears that Ms. Jashoda Ben w/o our PM Shri Narendra Modi wanted to go abroad and applied for a passport. Media reports indicate that her application has been rejected on some flimsy ground like 'marriage declaration /certificate not submitted'. Unless there are extremely valid reasons, it will be apt for the Regional Passport Officer, to clear her application also, without waiting for instructions from Information Commissioner. Justice should not only be done, it should also appear to have been done. If Regional Passport Officer withholds the passport application of Ms. Jashoda Ben, on some flimsy ground, there is a risk of our Prime Minister getting a bad name.
