"All the allegations made against me are baseless. If I would have committed anything wrong then I would not have been constantly coming to my office. Very soon I will get all my records from the university and make everything clear," Tomar told reporters in the Delhi secretariat.

Tomar also holds the portfolios of tourism, art and culture, as well as home.

Earlier on Tuesday, Congress leader Ajay Maken said on Twitter: "AAP Delhi law minister's law degree found fake. Should be sacked immediately and vacate assembly seat for fresh election!"

His comments came after a Bihar-based university from where Tomar claimed to have obtained his degree, on Monday told the Delhi High Court that the provisional certificate was not "genuine" and "does not exist in the university's record".

The serial number of the certificate in the record showed the name of some other person and not of Tomar, according to the Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University, Bihar.

Meanwhile, Opposition parties demanded that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal step down owning "moral responsibility" after a Bihar University told Delhi High Court that provisional certificate of Law Minister in his government Jitender Singh Tomar is "fabricated".
    
Congress also sought immediate dismissal of Tomar, both as a Minister and MLA, while the BJP slammed Aam Aadmi Party saying those who boasted of "politics of ethics" have been "unmasked".
    
"Even after this being pointed out to him (Kejriwal), why the Law Minister was made to continue? So, we demand Arvind Kejriwal should take moral responsibility, step down and the Law Minister should be sacked and seat should be vacated.
    
"Let people decide who should be their representative in the assembly from that particular assembly constituency area (represented by Tomar)," Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken reacted.
    
Senior Congress leader PC Chacko said  that the episode was a "matter of shame" for Delhi Government.
    
"Now that the court reference decision has come, the Chief Minister should take his resignation. He should be dismissed from the Government if not otherwise. So, I think this should not be delayed at all. It is a shame on the Government of Delhi," Chacko added.
    
The BJP taunted the AAP, saying the Law Minister himself has shown how law is being toyed with.
    
"Whatever degrees were submitted (by Tomar), were fake. The Law Minister himself has shown how law is being toyed with. Those people who spoke about ethics in politics have been unmasked. People of Delhi want answers from AAP for the way you reached here (gained power) by making false promises," BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said.
