Sad that PM was getting Rohith Vemula’s caste probed rather than his suicide: Kejriwal


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday remarked that it is “sad” that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was getting Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula’s “caste” probed rather than his suicide.

The AAP chief said irrespective of the findings of the Roopanwal Commission, which has submitted its report into the case to the HRD Ministry, people are “convinced” that BJP is “anti-dalit” and that “Modi believes that dalits and backwards are not nationalists.”
