It also claims his parents are residing temporarily at Karpaga Nagar in K. Pudur

Even before the din created in September this year over the Madurai Corporation having issued death certificates in the names of a sitting Minister and a Member of the Legislative Assembly could settle down, a group of four lawyers on Monday claimed that the Corporation had also issued a birth certificate in the name of Delhi’s Chief Minister designate Arvind Kejriwal.

The lawyers — S. Muthukumar, S. Mohandas, B. Stalin and V. Linga Natha Durai — visited the Collectorate here on Monday with a copy of the birth certificate which stated that ‘Aravind Kejrival’ was born in Madurai on December 27, 1970.

It also claimed that his parents named as Ramji Rao Gaikwad and Geetha Devi were residing temporarily at Karpaga Nagar in K. Pudur during the relevant time.

When asked how they got access to the certificate containing wrong details such as Kejriwal’s spelling, names of his parents and also the date of birth, Mr. Muthukumar claimed that some unknown person had dropped the birth certificate in his chamber inside the district court premises here on Thursday.

“It was found inside an envelope superscribed with the words — Action Needed,” he said.

Corporation Commissioner Kiran Gurrala said that no such certificate had been issued by the local body. “It is a false and forged document. We have lodged a police complaint seeking an enquiry into the issue,” he added.

This reminds me of news items during Emergency (1) Patna railway station lands were mortgaged to a nationalized bank and (2) a goods wagon was missing and could not be traced. We Indians are so clever that we are capable of doing things that are outlandish

Date of registration says 2012. So, someone may have done this to prove
how easy it is to get a fake Birth Certificate (even for celebrities) in
Madurai corporation where as some over-zealors lawyers thought they are
exposing Arvind Kejriwal.

Though there is no doubt that this is a forged certificate, it also does not carry any signature, did he forget to do the sign, the forger?

This is not the first time that such certificates have been obtained from relevant offices in different parts of India. All it does ie confirm how lazy and corrupt our sarkari system is. Perhaps, someone will wake up and wield the broom?! There is a lot of cleaning up to do.

Obviously, some one is trying to show how deep seated corruption is. The pity is that the commissioner seems to have straightaway gone into denial mode. Why not do a honest and transparent investigation and then declare that it is forged certificate?
