New Delhi: While the controversy over Narendra Modi’s degree was yet to die down, BJP has responded by raising questions over Arvind Kejriwal’s admission to IIT. Arvind Kejriwal was a student of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Kharagpur from 1985 to 1989.
BJP has claimed that Arvind kejriwal entered IIT through some abnormal means and didn’t clear the Joint Entrance Exam required to get admission in IITs. Citing RTI response from IIT Kharagpur that showed Kejriwal’s JEE rank is unavailable, BJP has raised this question.
Speaking to the press, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, “Before he asks for degree of any of our leaders, he must prove that he did clear JEE and got a good enough rank to enter IIT. Everyone knows that nobody can enter IITs without being able to solve every problem in Irodov’s Physics book, Problems in General Physics. Let him come on camera and solve the problems we give him from the book and we will find out whether he did go to IIT.”
“We are not going to be too strict about it. We will give him 10 problems out of the book and he can solve any 5. That is enough to satisfy us. If he finds it too tough, we can give him maths questions to solve from the books by S.L. Loney and the book by Hall and Knight but in that case, he will have to solve 8 out of 10 questions. We are reasonable people”, Mr. patra added.
When we asked whether Mr. Patra can solve these questions, he replied, “Bhai irodov ke dar se main doctor ban gaya. Entire MBBS was easier than questions in that book. We will get some experts to evaluate.”
When we contacted Arvind Kejriwal for his response to this challenge, he said, “I am ready to take up this challenge provided center government gives control of the invigilator to Delhi Government. We suspect Modi Government will appoint their agent to deliberately fail me.”
Meanwhile, BJP has dropped the idea of taking a test of Ashutosh’s English after nobody agreed to check his answers.
