On 24 June, BJP leader and MP Subramanian Swamy sought details of the process by which Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal got admission into IIT-Kharagpur in the 1980s and was awarded a B Tech (Hons) degree.
Swamy quoted an earlier RTI response from the institute which had been asked to provide the basis of 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 replied.
However, the RTI revealed other details, including CM Kejriwal's roll number in the Mechanical Engineering course, but did not provide the copy of the grade sheet of subjects as it is exempted from disclosure under the transparency law.
Earlier this week, Swamy had joined a hunger strike by BJP MP Mahesh Girri against 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," Swamy had said.
