A video of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) legislator Jaleel Khan has gone viral on social media in which the Vijayawada city (West) MLA is seen lying about his education qualifications.
According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, Jaleel Khan is seen in the video as telling the interviewer from a web channel that he graduated in B.Com with Physics and Mathematics as subjects.
When a surprised interviewer grilled him on his subjects, Jaleel Khan said that "Commerce is nothing but mathematics".
.Jaleel Khan was a scrap dealer who became an MLA on the ticket of YSR Congress, but later switched over to the Telugu Desam Party (TDP).
According to the report, the affidavit submitted by Jaleel Khan to the Election Commission of India says only that he passed his Matriculation (Class 10) in 1969 from SHAD Tutorial College, Vijayawada.
When a Deccan Chronicle correspondent asked Jaleel Khan to explain the discrepancy , he said that he would have to check all his certificates to find out and clarify what he had studied exactly.

“But I doubt I had studied B.Com and will confirm after checking my certificates,” he told the DC correspondent.
