INLD supremo Om Prakash Chautala's son may have said that his father, who is in jail, has passed class XII exam, but documents speak otherwise. The former Haryana chief minister's son and INLD secretary general Abhay Chautala had claimed that his father has passed higher secondary examination in first division, while serving a 10-year sentence in Delhi's Tihar jail.
However, the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) has clarified that Chautala had appeared for class X and not class XII exams and the results have not been declared. Documents show that Chautala had appeared for class X exams in the subjects of social sciences, science and technology , Hindi, Indian culture and heritage and business studies. He took the ex ams at Delhi's Tihar jail from April 6 to April 24.
On being contacted, Abhay said he had told the media whatever he was informed about. An affidavit filed by Chautala for contesting the 2005 Haryana assembly polls say he is under-matric. But, the affidavit submitted ahead of the 2009 polls claims that he is a matriculate from Higher Secondary Gramothan Vidyapeeth in Rajasthan.
