Now, Subramanian Swamy Seeks Details Of Kejriwal’s IIT Admission

NEW DELHI: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today sought details of the process by which Delhi Chief Minister got admission into IIT-Kharagpur in the 1980s and was awarded a B Tech (Hons) degree.

In a press release, he cited an RTI reply from the institute which was asked to provide the basis of Mr Kejriwal’s entry into B Tech programme and his All India Rank (AIR) in any competitive exam such as the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE).

This information is not available, the institution said in the RTI reply.

However, RTI gave other details of Mr Kejriwal that included his Roll No 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, Mr Swamy had joined a protest hunger strike by one of the Delhi BJP MPs Mahesh Girri against Mr Kejriwal, where he declared he would go after the Chief Minister the way he took on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan.

“All his life he (Kejriwal) has done fraud. He says he was a meritorious student in IIT but I have records of how he got his admission…which I will reveal in a press conference. Till now I was Rajan ke peechhe (was going after Raghuram Rajan) and he is now gone,” Mr Swamy had said.
