New Delhi, May 6 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday alleged that some media houses were asked “not to touch” the controversy over Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s degree.

The Central Information Commission (CIC) had on April 29 directed the universities of Delhi and Gujarat to respond to a letter from Kejriwal, which it treated as a Right to Information application onModi’s educational qualifications.

The university cited its inability to get the information without a roll number as the reason for the denial.
