Rohith Vemula's mother must contest 2019 polls to teach 'Manusmriti Irani' a lesson: Jignesh Mevani
Dalit MLA from Gujarat, Jignesh Mewani on Thursday urged that Rohith Vemula's mother Radhika Vemula, must contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and teach BJP leader Smriti Irani a lesson.
I strongly appeal to our inspiration Radhika(amma)Vemula to contest in 2019 elections and teach a lesson to Manusmriti Irani in Parliament.— Jignesh Mevani (@jigneshmevani80) January 18, 2018
Taking to Twitter, Mevani said, I strongly appeal to our inspiration Radhika(amma)Vemula to contest in 2019 elections and teach a lesson to Manusmriti Irani in Parliament.
Mevani had called the death of Rohith "an institutional murder".
Rohith Vemula, a 28-year-old Dalit research scholar at the University of Hyderabad, was found hanging in his friend's hostel room on January 17, 2016. Alleging caste discrimination, his friends and family claimed that the varsity had stopped paying a fellowship of Rs 25,000 which forced him to take the drastic step.
His suicide had triggered a massive political row with the then Human Resource and Development Minister Smriti Irani coming under attack from various corners.
