Irani’s degrees should be verified: Modi’s brother Prahlad

Prahlad, vice-president of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers’ Federation (AIFPSDF), said this while interacting with reporters here. “Just as degrees of AAP MLA and former Delhi Minister Jitender Singh Tomar are being verified, a probe should be carried out into Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s degrees,” he said.

AAP and Congress have been demanding the Centre to probe the charges of false educational qualification against Irani. When asked about the row over help to tainted former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi by Union Minister Sushma Swaraj for travel documents, Prahlad said it was done on “humanitarian” grounds and the issue should not be unnecessarily hyped.

On the issue of blackmoney stashed abroad, he said, “The central government is making all efforts. Blackmoney stashed in India is far more than that in foreign countries.”

Suggesting that LPG cylinders should be supplied through ration shops, the AIFPSDF vice-president said, “Just as grocery is distributed from ration shops, LPG cylinders should also be supplied through them so that the income of such dealers increases and corruption gets checked.”


  1. I like this guy, Prahlad Modi already! What he has said seems to be the most sensible thing to do and I’m positive that our Original Rampu will concur with me.

  2. This shows that this guy is also an honest man like his brother who went onto become Pradhaana Sevaka. As I have said several times on this forum, there has to be an investigation and we need to find out if these individuals produced fake certificates.

    @Joker Praveena Pinto – Not sure why you are asking me to concur with you when I have already stated my position several times on this forum. It shows how slow and clueless you are!! Moreover, if you like this guy Prahlaada, I’m sure you liked his take on Lalitha Modi as well, right? smiles…


      Prahlad Modi did not desert his wife and that is why he did not become the Pradhana sevak, it seems, Original Paimaam.
