Junior HRD minister Ram Shankar Katheria (with 27 criminal cases against Katheria, including one of attempt to murder) in fake marksheet row

“This is the second time an HRD minister in the Narendra Modi government is facing such an allegation. Earlier, HRD minister Smriti Irani was alleged to have provided conflicting affidavits of her educational qualifications to the Election Commission.

In 2004, Irani had submitted that she had obtained a graduate degree in Arts (BA, 1996) from Delhi University (School of Correspondence); and in 2014, she submitted that she had completed a part of a graduate degree in Commerce (Part I BCom, 1994) from Delhi University. ”

​”How can you compare a king to an oil-seller? How can you compare Modi with Rahul Gandhi? Even when we buy a dog, we check its breed and lineage first. Similarly, when we buy a bull for ploughing fields, we first check whether it is fit to work. We never buy a bull whose hooves are not right. How can we have a leader whose hereditary background is unknown?”

About Modi “I am sorry to say that this man Modi is saying anything that he wants.”

About BJP unit and leaders “thieves, biggest black-marketeers and hoarders”.

-​Lal Singh, ​BJP MLA, Basholi J&K, about Modi​ and BJP before joining BJP​
