New Delhi: Early school leaver Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga, who is taking part in Hari Nagar's Delhi assembly poll, has a diploma in the National Defense University of China's National Development Course, according to his affidavit.
Bagga, who was appointed BJP spokesman in Delhi in 2017, mentioned in the affidavit that he was completing an IGNOU undergraduate program.
This program is offered by the university for students who want to do a bachelor's degree from IGNOU but do not have the necessary qualifications to pass the 12th grade.
"Diploma in National Development Course from the National Defense University of the Republic of China Taiwan in 2017," says his affidavit.
From the slap in the face for former AAP leader Prashant Bhushan and the disruption of Arundhati Roy's book event to the sale of tea in front of Congress headquarters as a protest against Mani Shankar Aiyar's statements, Bagga has repeatedly managed to outshine the others, also because of of his numerous Twitter spats.
BJP's rivals often accuse Bagga, who has more than 6.4 lakh followers, of being a "Twitter troll".
Bagga, who fought for Hari Nagar, said he would publish a constituency-specific manifesto for the elections on February 8 and promised to install a "smog tower" in the area if he won.
"Hari Nagar Vidhansabha will be the first Vidhansabha in Delhi to publish its own manifesto. In the first 60 days of my victory, we will install the Smog Tower in Hari Nagar Vidhanasabha. #PolllutionFreeHariNagar," he tweeted.
Bagga began his career with Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena, who describes himself as a "nationalist task force against traitors, anti-nationalists and corrupt people".
He made headlines in October 2011 when he openly admitted that he had beaten lawyer-activist and then AAP leader Bhushan for his comments on Kashmir and called the attack "Operation Prashant Bhushan".
