Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s younger brother Prahlad has said educational qualifications of HRD Minister Smriti Irani should be verified as being done in the case of former Delhi Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar.

Prahlad, vice-president of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation (AIFPSDF), said this while interacting with reporters here.

Just as degrees of AAP MLA and former Delhi Minister Jitender Singh Tomar are being verified, a probe should be carried out into Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s degrees.

AAP and Congress have been demanding the Centre to probe the charges of false educational qualification against Irani.

When asked about the row over help to tainted former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi by Union Minister Sushma Swaraj for travel documents, Prahlad said it was done on “humanitarian” grounds and the issue should not be unnecessarily hyped.

On the issue of black money stashed abroad, he said, “The central government is making all efforts. Black money stashed in India is far more than that in foreign countries.”
