Soon after becoming a minister in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi government, Nisith Pramanik was embroiled in controversies. After leaving the Trinamool Congress and joining the Bharatiya Janata Party, this stalwart leader of Cooch Behar was taken under wraps by the TMC soon after taking oath as a Union minister in the Modi cabinet.
Questions are being raised regarding the educational qualification of BJP MP from Cooch Behar, Nisith Pramanik. The Trinamool leader from Cooch Behar has questioned his educational qualifications on social media.
According to his claim, the educational qualification of MP Nisith Pramanik is showing BCA (Bachelor of Computer Application) on the Parliament website, but in the affidavit filed by the BJP leader while contesting the election, the highest educational qualification is said to be secondary. Cooch Behar’s Trinamool leader Partha Pratim Roy has also made a post on his Facebook page with this information.
The Trinamool leader said that in the ‘Indian Parliament’ section of the Government of India’s website india.gov.in, Nisith Pramanik has been told as a BCA pass. It also mentions that he obtained that degree from Balakunda Junior Basic School.
On the other hand, during the Lok Sabha elections in the year 2019, in the affidavit given by Nisith, the leader of the Rajvanshi community, it has been said that his highest educational qualification is Higher Secondary. He was a student of Lal Bahadur Shastri Vidyapeeth and Trinamool has started dragging him into controversies by making both these facts public.
It is noteworthy that in the second term of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, many ministers were asked while many new people have been given a place in the cabinet. In the cabinet reshuffle, Nisith Pramanik was sworn in as the youngest Union Minister of the Modi cabinet. 35-year-old Nishith had also won the assembly elections from Dinhata.
The BJP instructed him to continue as an MP. After this Nisith Pramanik did not take oath as a member of the Legislative Assembly. Nisith Pramanik took oath as a minister at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Wednesday at the same time questions were raised on his educational qualifications on Thursday.
