Smriti Irani: HU suicide case is being misrepresented

New Delhi: Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD) Smriti Irani said the Hyderabad University suicide case was misrepresented as suicide of research scholar Rohith Vemula, was not a “Dalit versus non-Dalit issue” and there was a “malicious attempt to project it as a caste battle.”

“There has been a malicious attempt to project the issue as a caste battle. The truth is that it is not,” the Minister said at a press conference.

HRD Minister said the case was being “misrepresented” and that she was compelled to clear the air on it.

“I am here to clear certain misrepresentation of facts on the suicide of Rohith,” she said.

“It’s not a Dalit versus non-Dalit confrontation,” the minister said, adding that there have been media debates suggesting that Rohith mentioned the names of people and organisations who forced him to commit suicide.

She showed a letter to the media, saying it was the only document the state police got while investigating the case.

She also read out a few lines from the letter, suggesting that there was not the case as was being alleged.

BJP is under pressure for the involvement in the student politics and subsequent death of a student. Opposition slammed the government for the incident.(IANS)
