Hyderabad, May 13: It has been four months since the students of the University of Hyderabad (UoH), Hyderabad, are fighting to get justice for Rohith Vemula. Rohith, 26, committed suicide inside the campus of the university in January.
Rohith's tragic death has become a rallying point for all those who have long been saying that there exists a systematic discrimination of Dalit students in the higher educational institutions across the country.
Now, a student leader alleged that the movement to get justice for the Dalit research scholar Rohith has been sponsored by the Congress and Left parties.
Raj Kumar Sahu, after he resigned from the Left-affiliated student's union SFI at the university, said the movement has "become opportunistic."
In his resignation letter, Sahu has said that the "present state of affairs at SFI, HCU is murky". He added, "The politics of SFI is opportunistic and not based on principles."
However, the SFI has dismissed Sahu's allegations. According to members of the SFI, Raj is "parroting what the ABVP has been saying."
After Sahu's shocking allegations, the union minister M Venkaiah Naidu of the BJP, tweeted, "HCU students union secretary resigns and makes startling revelations. Left and Congress role exposed in Rohith Vemula's episode."
"They need to apologize to the nation," Naidu added.
