Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said a city-based family has decided to bear the cost of education of Vijay Kumar, who has qualified for the IIT-Delhi after availing the government’s free coaching scheme.

Kejriwal introduced the south Delhi-based family at a press conference here during which Kumar and his parents were also present.

Kumar, 16, is son of a tailor father and a homemaker mother.

“You all have already read about and seen on TV Vijay’s achievements. He had availed the Delhi government’s ‘Jai Bhim Mukhyamantri Pratibha Vikas Yojana’ which is a free coaching scheme for aspiring students like him, who dream big but do not have resources,” said Kejriwal, himself an IIT graduate.
