"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," Prahlad, vice-president of All India Fair Price Shop Dealers' Federation (AIFPSDF), said.

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."
