Tushar Gandhi, the great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, has sent an autobiography of Gandhiji to Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, after the L-G stated that the Mahatma “did not possess any law degree”.
“M. K. Gandhi passed 2 Matrics 1 from Alfred High School Rajkot, 2nd its equivalent in London, British Matriculation. He acquired, by studying and passing exams a Law Degree from Inner Temple, a law college affiliated to London University and simultaneously got two diplomas, one in Latin the other in French,” Tushar Gandhi said, in a series of tweets.
He said a copy of Bapu’s autobiography had been dispatched to the Raj Bhavan, Jammu, in the hope that the Lieutenant Governor could educate himself.
Mr. Sinha, in his keynote address made during the Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia Memorial Lecture, in Gwalior on Thursday, had said: “Did you know that he did not have a single university degree or qualification? There are many of us who think that Mahatma Gandhi had a law degree. No, he did not. His only qualification was a high school diploma. He qualified to practise law. He did not have a law degree.”
