Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday denied reports that his daughter Harshita was debuting in politics by joining his party's new student wing.

"Some media running completly false stories that my daughter is joining politics. She has no such intentions" Kejriwal tweeted.

He said she had joined IIT Delhi a few days ago and that she came for a student's programme. "Kindly leave the kid in peace pl (sic). AAP is dead against dynastic politics." he further tweeted.

AAP's student wing the Chhaatra Yuva Sangharsha Samiti (CYSS), which was launched on Saturday will have its presence in 50 colleges in the national capital, apart from at the Delhi, Jamia Milia and Jawaharlal Nehru universities.

There were questions on whether Harshita would join the CYSS to which an announcement was made at Ghalib auditorium that she would expand the student's wing in IIT Delhi, PTI reported.

Harshita scored 96% in the board exams and cleared the JEE exam to get into IIT Delhi.

Former Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal himself is an engineering graduate from IIT Kharagpur. Besides, he even cleared the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) Exam before leaving the civil services to join social service and later politics.
