Probe into Rohith Vemula death a farce: Mayawati

BSP chief Mayawati on Friday alleged that the government was protecting people with RSS links who forced Dalit scholar Rohit Vemula to commit suicide in the Hyderabad University complex.



New Delhi: BSP chief Mayawati on Friday alleged that the government was protecting people with RSS links who forced Dalit scholar Rohit Vemula to commit suicide in the Hyderabad University complex.

Mayawati criticised the government for not including a Dalit member in a panel probing Vemula`s death.

She said the setting up of the panel was a "farce" and was aimed at saving people with "RSS links who abetted the scholar`s suicide".

Reading out from a written speech in Hindi, Mayawati told the Rajya Sabha that she was not satisfied with the reply of Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani, who on Wednesday had said that she would cut off her head and place it at the BSP chief`s feet if she failed to satisfy the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister with her reply on Vemula`s death.
