Smriti Irani Asks DU To Reinstate Suspended Officials

Five non-teaching staff members of Delhi University were on Friday suspended for allegedly leaking purported documents relating to undergraduate course admission and admit card of HRD Minister Smriti Irani whose educational qualification is caught up in a row.
In public life one should be open to scrutiny and criticism. So am I.

"DU's School of Open Learning has suspended five people on the suspicion that they entered a confidential domain and accessed documents which were leaked," University sources said.
Since DU is an autonomous institution I have put forth my personal appeal to the VC to reinstate the officials.

Those suspended are a Section Officer and four officials below him in hierarchy. An inquiry has been initiated against them, they said.
Sources said the officials have admitted to SOL's Director Chandra Shekhar Dubey to leaking the documents.
The action came after a Hindi newspaper published the purported leaked documents according to which Irani had taken admission in DU's SOL last year but did not appear for the examinations.
Irani is at the centre of a raging controversy over her educational qualification after it emerged that she had made contradictory declarations when she contested Lok Sabha elections in 2004 and 2014.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh took a dig at the Modi government and said that the suspension was uncalled for.
Thanks Smriti for appealing to VC DU for reinstating DU officials. Now let people of this Country know your actual Educational Qualification
