On Wednesday, the Union HRD Minister, Smriti Irani made a desperate plea to the Rajya Sabha’s acting chairman on Rohith Vemula’s death alleging the opposition parties were indulging in politics using the death of a ‘child.’
She said, “Have a discussion right away sir! Who uses a child as a political tool?”
In case Irani has forgotten, it was her ministry’s letters that had described the actions of that very ‘child’ an anti-national and had directed the University of Hyderabad to take actions against Rohith and four other students.
The university had later expelled all five students- a decision that later pushed Rohith to commit suicide.
Irani’s ministry had written four letters to the University of Hyderabad with the subject of three of them being described as ‘anti-national activities in the Hyderabad University premises.’
The subject of these letters also sought to highlight the alleged attack against the ABVP leader.
You can read all four letters below.
