Opposition guns for Smiriti’s apology

Smriti IraniContinuing their tirade, opposition parties in Lok Sabha today targeted HRD Minister Smriti Irani  forcing Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to allow them to speak on their notice for Privilege Motion against the minister.

Congress and Left members accused Irani of using the House to “mislead” the nation with her “totally blatant untruth” during her reply last week on Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula’s suicide in the Hyderabad Central University.

K C Venugopal (Cong) referred to Irani’s statement in which she had said that no doctor was allowed near Vemula after his suicide attempt. He cited the subsequent response of the Hyderabad health official to claim that she made “false” comments.

He added that a book which Irani said was allowed by the then HRD Minister Kapil Sibal was discontinued in 2001, long before he became a minister under the UPA government.
