Yechury: You (BJP) have pushed Rohit to end life

sitaramRajya Sabha MP and CPM leader Sitaram Yechury Friday charged  BJP leaders in the House that Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula was pushed to commit suicide.

“You have pushed the child to commit suicide, its virtually a murder,” said Yechury.

Yechury also took on HRD Minister Smriti Irani for reading out “derogatory” references to goddess Durga from a poster purportedly circulated by JNU students on “Mahishasura martyrdom day”.

“She quoted Macbeth: foul is fair and fair is foul. She is making all that is foul, fair,” said Yechury.

Irani, earlier in the day said: “I am myself a Durga worshipper and I said it with a lot of pain.”

Meanwhile, Anand Sharma of the Congress lashed out at Irani for her remarks in the Rajya Sabha. “HRD Minister must apologise for what she said about Goddess Durga, its blasphemous. We kept requesting her to stop but she didn’t, nothing blasphemous must be tolerated in RS.”
