Earlier last month, Smriti Irani accepted that she doesn’t have a college degree. In her poll affidavit, the Union Minister had said that she did enrol for an undergraduate course in Delhi University but did “did not complete the three-year degree course”.
In her 2004 affidavit, she had claimed that she is a graduate. There was a controversy when her 2014 affidavit contradicted her own claim. In August 2014, Irani at a media event claimed that she had a degree from the prestigious Yale University in the US.
For 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Irani pitted against Congress president Rahul Gandhi from Amethi Lok Sabha seat, which will vote in the fifth phase of polls on May 6, Monday.
