Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today demanded that the Central Information Commission (CIC) makes public information pertaining to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's educational qualifications.

In a letter to Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu, Kejriwal said he does not object to government records about him being made public and wondered why the Commission wants to "hide" information on Modi's educational degree.

"There are allegations that Narendra Modi does not have any degree. The people of the country want to know the truth.

Despite that you have refused to make records regarding his degree public. Why did you do this? This is wrong," Kejriwal said in the letter.

Last month, the CIC had asked why Kejriwal should not be declared a public authority as he is an MLA, in a case that sought to know how he was allowed to change his address during 2014 Delhi Assembly poll nominations.

"You want to make all my records public and I do not object to that. But I am surprised that you want to hide information about Narendra Modi's degree," Kejriwal said, adding, it will make people question the Commission's neutrality.

"I urge you to show courage and make public records pertaining to Prime Minister Narendra Modi while making my records public," he wrote.
