Judge me by my work: Irani on education qualification row

Smriti iraniAgencies, New Delhi
Breaking her silence over her educational qualification controversy, HRD Minister Smriti Irani today said “extraneous circumstances” were created to deviate her attention from work and asked the people to judge her by her work.  Irani reacted two days after the Congress launched a broadside against her, questioning her ability to deliver as HRD minister as she was “not even a graduate”.  The 38-year-old television actor-turned politician told reporters that, “Extraneous circumstances have been created to ensure that my attention is deviated from the body of work I have been entrusted with.”

Irani said that she has been judged by her organisation with regard to her capacity to deliver on assignments. “I will humbly request all of you that judge be my work and I will not add anything to the statement that I have made,” the Minister said.  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.
