Yes, it can only happen in Nepal!
In a program, in which the the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly, Subhash Newang, was the chief guest, high level officials and reputed personals were handed over fake honorary PhD certificates. The Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) Bijaya Kumar Gachhedar, UML leader KP Oli, Madan Krishna Shrestha, and Hari bamsha Acharya were some of the ‘lucky’ people to received the honorary PhD degree.
The ‘Chancellor’ of Greenford University, Gopal Poudel, was later found to be a fake person and one of the holder of honorary PhD certificate, "Sri Lankan Parliamentary Member" was also nowhere to be found in Sri Lanka. The "Online University" is told to charge $2000 for the honorary degree. It sure is a profitable business! (Photo – Nagariknews)
