On wednesday, during a debate in Lok Sabha Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani assailed the opposition parties over the burning issues of Rohith Vemula’s suicide and alleged anti-national activities in JNU.
Here is the List of Nine such speech which compelled the opposition to take the back seat-
Rohith Vemula’s body was used as a political tool. Rahul Gandhi saw a political opportunity in Rohith Vemula’s death. Over 600 students died during Telangana movement. Did Rahul Gandhi go once? No! In this the Congress vice-president saw a political opportunity.
I have been accused that with which authority do I write letters to Universities. MPs who want admission for their kids come to me. I will never apologise for writing letters as I just did my duty. In my 20 months as minister, I have served my country, people without any prejudice. My ministry also responded to letters of Shashi Tharoor and TMC MP Saugata Roy. We also replied to AIMIM chief Owaisi’s letter.
One student dies and there is political battle over it. Does the country know that the executive council which took the decision (on Rohith Vemula) – Not even one member was appointed by NDA, all were appointed by UPA.
Rohith Vemula was used for political benefits, I will give you proof. I called up Telangana CM KCR as soon as I got to know about the incident, only to request to help in law and order situation. I was told ‘sahab’ is busy. My call is on record. I am yet to receive his phone call.”5- “Nobody allowed a doctor near the Rohith Vemula. Not even one attempt was made to revive him. He was used as a political tool. This is what Telengana police is saying.
Opposition only interested in politics and not hearing my response
I am not certifying your patriotism, but do not demean mine; I will quit if V-Cs can prove saffronisation charge against me.
JNU authorities recommended suspension of JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar and DSU member Umar Khalid.
Umar Khalid misled the JNU administration, he said in an application form that he was organising poetry reading.
Even Indira Gandhi lost power, but his son never supported anti-national forces. Don’t make education a political battlefield; I request everyone to stop treating children as votebanks.
