New Delhi: BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today raised questions over the process for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's admission in the 1980s to IIT-Kharagpur from where he was awarded B Tech (Hons) degree.

In a press release, he cited an RTI reply received from IIT-K to his query asking the institute to provide the basis of Kejriwal's entry into B Tech programme and his All India Rank (AIR) in any competitive exam such as JEE, etc.

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

The institute gave other details of Kejriwal which 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.

Swamy has been targeting Kejriwal of late. Earlier this week, he joined a protest fast by one of the Delhi BJP MPs Mahesh Girri against Kejriwal where he declared he would go after the Chief Minister the way he took on RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan.
