Parrikar praises fellow IITian Kejriwal

Panaji, Jan 1 : IIT alumnus Arvind Kejriwal has shown the right intent. Now people have to wait and see if he can deliver on his promises, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, also an IIT graduate, said Wednesday.

"He has shown the right intent. Let us see if he can deliver," Parrikar told reporters at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state headquarters.

Parrikar studied metallurgy at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Powai.

He was the only chief minister with an educational stint at the prestigious chain of institutes, until Aam Aadmi Party leader Kejriwal, who passed out of the equally elite IIT Kharagpur, was sworn in as chief minister of Delhi last month.
