"If the government is not taking action against bureaucrats and ministers who are looting the poor then the Dalits should shoot the politicians responsible for deaths like that of Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula. The Dalits should fight against all those who are responsible for Vemula's death," Yadav was quoted by a TOI report.
