Swamy’s New Rant: RTI Says Kejriwal Got Into IIT Not Through Merit
Subramanian Swamy on Saturday raised questions on the process through which Arvind Kejriwal got admission in IIT.
Launching a fresh attack on Arvind Kejriwal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday alleged that the Delhi Chief Minister did not get into the famed Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur through competitive exams and did not hold a rank from the university.
Asserting that back in 1952 when the institute was set up the vacancy was not given according to the order of marks, Swamy said that the seats were doled out illegally by the members of the managing board of the governors of IIT Kharagpur and it was stopped by the government in 2005.
The man who talks about poor being denied the privileges, he himself is the product of these privileged and he has never owned it. He should have had the courage to admit. I call upon Mr. Kejriwal to give this explanation. Did he come to IIT though merit or he got in by skulduggeries that used to take place.Subramanian Swamy, BJP MP
