New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's educational qualifications and raised doubts regarding his understanding about the economy following the Centre's move on demonetisation.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday, Kejriwal said, "PM Modi doesn't know what he is doing. He should show his educational degrees."

He said, "Modiji degree case in Gujarat High Court today. He sends his best advocate Tushar Mehta to obtain stay on disclosure of degree? Why? Degree farzi?"

"Whole country is reeling under demonetisation. People want know educational qualifications of PM. Does he understand economy?," he tweeted.

On Wednesday, Kejriwal had dared Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi to "expose" PM Modi if he has documents at his disposal.

He alleged that Congress and BJP indulge in a "friendly match" but don't make any disclosure.

"If Rahul Gandhi actually has papers on Modiji's personal involvement in corruption, then why doesn't he expose it outside Parliament? "Friendly match - BJP says they have AgustaWestland against Congress. Cong says they have Sahara/Birla against BJP. Both don't disclose," Kejriwal had said
