Rohith Vemula

Lets Not Forget, RSS is Anti-Dalits!

Soon after the PMs condemnation of the Una incident in his post Mann Ki Baat address, the RSS also criticised the attack on Dalits. The timing of the two statements shows the weakness of the conviction behind it. The attack on Dalit youth in Una took place on July 11 and the Prime Minister spoke against it only on August 7. Both the statements were made almost a month after the Una incident. RSS's seriousness is also evident from the fact that, along with condemnation, it added that the Prime Minister should have not called 80 percent Gau Rakshaks fake.

M.B. Rajesh on Rohith Vemula & JNU Issue

SHRI M.B. RAJESH (PALAKKAD): Madam, we are discussing this important issue at a time when the campuses across the country are boiling in an unprecedented outrage and protest. Tens of thousands of students are coming out on the streets to fight an undeclared emergency imposed by the Government against the universities and campuses. Madam Speaker, two incidents have shaken the conscience of the entire nation. One is a suicide. It is, in fact, an institutional killing of Rohit Vemula, a brilliant student who wanted to become another Carl Sagan. He belonged to Hyderabad Central University.
