New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday raised questions over the process for Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s admission in the 1980s to Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, from where he was awarded Bachelor of Technology (Honours) degree.
In a press release, Swamy cited a Right to Information reply received from IIT-Kharagpur to his query asking the institute to provide the basis of Kejriwal’s entry into the BTech programme and his all India rank in any competitive exam such as Joint Entrance Examination.
This information is not available, the institution said in the RTI reply.
The institute gave other details of Kejriwal which included his roll number in the Mechanical Engineering course and the years of study, but did not provide the copy of grade sheet of subjects since it is exempted from disclosure under the transparency law.
Earlier this week, Swamy joined a protest fast by Delhi BJP member of Parliament Mahesh Girri against Kejriwal where he declared he would go after the chief minister the way he took on Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan.
