BJP-backed independent candidate and media baron Subhash Chandra was recently elected to the Rajya Sabha from Haryana, after 14 Congress votes were declared invalid.
Chandra defeated Delhi-based lawyer and INLD, Congress-backed independent candidate R K Anand.
But do you know, Chandra who is just 10th class passed has a doctorate degree too!
Here’s the video which highlights that how Chandra became a Doctor:
Chandra passed his 10th in 1966 from Hisar’s CAV High School and left his 12th in between to join family business.
Now the question rises how a 10th pass person can get a doctorate degree. So, he got the degree from University Of East London. He was honoured for opening new possibilities in the world of business and succeeding in it.
He is not only person who received the honorary doctorate degree. Besides him, Amitabh Bachchan received the similar from seven universities, including Jhasi University, Delhi University, The Montfort University and Leeds Metropolitan University. But still never called himself Doctor Bachchan.
Similarly, Akshay Kumar got the degree from University of Windsor in 2008, Shilpa Shetty from University of Leeds, Preity Zinta from University Of East London in 2010.
Though he uses prefix Doctor, however while filing Rajya Sabha nomination form he revealed that he is just 10th pass.
