“This is also an attempt to find lost political ground (by Wagh). I do not think this (comment) needs to be given much importance,” he added.
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) MLA Jitendra Awhad also took a dig at Wagh. “Wagh is an engineering graduate from VJTI (one of the oldest engineering colleges in Asia). There is a need now to check if his certificate (degree) is genuine. This was not expected from him,” he told reporters in Mumbai.
