New Delhi | Expelled Aam Aadmi Party leader and founder of Swaraj Abhiyan,  Yogendra Yadav today said that the file pertaining to the fake degree of former Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar was lying with party for four months, but Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal never bothered to order a probe.
Talking to reporters here, Mr Yadav said that this was not a matter of fake degree of Tomar alone, but there are several leaders in different parties, whose degrees too need to be investigated.
For the last four months, I have been asking the party to atleast conduct an internal investigation into this matter. Had it been done then, the party today would not have faced such a situation, Mr Yadav said.
He said, Tomar is not the only person, there are several leaders from several parties, who have submitted false affidavits to the Election Commission and all such papers need to be investigated. It was the duty of the party, which came into existence due to its principle and honesty to have carried out an internal investigation into the matter.
Mr Kejriwal should have atleast investigated the matter within the party, Mr Yadav said.
Whether it is Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani or Prime Minister Narendra Modi or any others, who so ever has given false affidavit needs to be probed, Mr Yadav said.
