BJP’s 2 celebrity faces in Capital hold no degrees

New Delhi, April 25

Out of the seven candidates the BJP has fielded in Delhi for the Lok Sabha elections, the two new celebrity faces-Gautam Gambhir and Hans Raj Hans-do not have college degrees. The Congress and the AAP have one candidate each without a college degree.

Gambhir, in his nomination affidavit, has said that his “degree (was) not completed”. The 37-year-old is contesting in East Delhi against the AAP’s Atishi, 37, who holds an MSc (2006) degree from Oxford University. The Congress has named 50-year-old Arvinder Singh Lovely, a BA Political Science graduate from Delhi University.

Hans Raj Hans, a matric pass (1978), is contesting from the North West Delhi seat. He will face the AAP’s Class 8 pass 70-year-old Gugan Singh. The Congress has named 53-year-old M.Sc. holder Rajesh Lilothia from the seat.

For the West Delhi seat, the Congress has named Mahabal Mishra, with a pre-university certificate (Intermediate course) from Bihar. Mishra will face 41-year-old Parvesh Sahib Singh, a MBA holder, and the AAP’s 47-year-old Balbir Singh Jakhar, with a L.L.B degree. In the remaining four seats, the fight is between degree holders. — IANS
