Congress MP from Rajya Sabha, V Hanumantha Rao, who was at the eye of the storm on the Rohit Vemula suicide issue has demanded action against Smriti Irani, Union HRD minister, for what he called as ‘speaking lies in parliament’.
“Smriti’s speech is loaded with lies. The doctor who examined her too contradicted her claim of no medical aid for the scholar” VH said. “Police is interested in Rohit’s caste and they don’t want to go into the reasons that led to his death. If Rohit is not a dalit, will he not be given treatment”, he asked. The MP has also asked why no action was taken against the Vice Chancellor Appa Rao till date.
