An old video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is making rounds online. In the video PM, Modi addresses a rally where he says he has only pursued primary education.
“I have not pursued education after primary education.” He further chuckled and said: “A person does not grow because of his education now I did not pursue an education that’s why I grew.”
The video is shared by Aam Aadmi Part Mumbai Joint Secretary Rah Sharma days after party chief Arvind Kejriwal took a veiled dig at Prime Minister Modi. HW News does not claim the authenticity of the video.
अनपढ़ राजा सारी प्रजा को भी अनपढ़ रखना चाहता है,
शिक्षित ना हो पाए प्रजा, इसलिए हर शिक्षक को जेल में रखना चाहता है.#ManishSisodia@AamAadmiParty @ArvindKejriwal @AAPMumbai @PreetiSMenon @SanjayAzadSln @AtishiAAP

Kejriwal had said: “It is very important to have an educated Prime Minister. The country should have an educated PM. It is necessary for the Prime Minister to be educated.”
Taking a dig at the demonization the AAP leader said: “If the PM is not educated, then anyone will fool him to do ‘notebandi’ saying ‘corruption-terrorism will end’. Has corruption-terrorism ended? An educated PM will know about the economy, technology, and science.”
“When the PM of a country is illiterate then the country plays thali to fight epidemic instead of science. That is why it is very important to have an educated Prime Minister,” He added.
PM in his affidavit filed with the Election Commission Of India in 2019 declared he hold an MA degree from Gujarat University in 1983.
