New Delhi, May 28: A day after Congress leader Ajay Maken criticised Smriti Irani for heading the HRD Ministry without having a degree, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has come out in support of Irani.

Maken had on Tuesday questioned the education qualifications of Irani and tweeted that 'Irani who was heading the HRD ministry was not even a graduate.'

Following this, the BJP as well as other politicians criticised Maken for his statement. Abdullah too criticised the comment and tweeted-

Meanwhile the BJP condemned the statement and said that 'it was unfortunate if such things are spoken about her.' Smriti Irani however has not yet commented on the issue.
