After the controversy around Water Supply Minister Babanrao Lonikar’s educational qualifications, another BJP leader from Maharashtra has come under the scanner for allegedly mentioning fake graduation degree in his election affidavit.

 State’s Education Minister Vinod Tawde on Monday found himself in a soup after it was revealed that his college was not recognised by the government.

Mr. Tawde claimed that he had done nothing wrong and he was proud of his college, Dyaneshwar Vidyapeeth, in Pune where he completed his engineering course.
