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.
