New Delhi:  Two days after a controversy erupted over her educational qualifications, Human Rresource Development Minister Smriti Irani said Thursday that “extraneous circumstances” were created by the opposition to divert her and requested the people to judge her on the basis of her work.

“Extraneous circumstances have been created to ensure that my attention is deviated from the work I have been entrusted with. I am judged by my organisation with regard to my capacity to deliver an assignment,” Irani told reporters here.

“I humbly request all of you to judge me by my work,” she added.

The minister’s reaction came after the Congress questioned the allocation of the HRD ministry to an undergraduate person and said she lied about her degrees in her election affidavit.
