Earlier, sticking to its charges despite BJP going public with Prime Minister Narendra Modi's degrees and marksheets, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alleged that the documents produced by Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley were "forged", saying there were "glaring discrepancies" in them.

Holding a press conference, AAP leader Ashutosh said Modi's name does not match in the BA marksheet and that of the MA degree and even claimed that there were discrepancies in the year of passing as well.

"Nakal ke liye bhi akal ki jarurat hai (One needs brains even to copy). The BA marksheet is dated 1978 while the degree is of the year 1979. His name in the BA marksheet is Narendra Kumar Damodardas Modi while in Masters degree, it is Narendra Damoderdas Modi," said the AAP leader.

He said there were discrepancies in the PM's name even at the BA level with it being recorded as 'Narendra Kumar Damodardas Modi' in one of the marksheets while it was spelt as 'Narendra Damoderdas Modi' in the degree certificate.

Even in BA marksheets, another AAP leader Dilip Pandey said, surname is spelt "Modi" in one case while it changes to "Mody" in another.
