Don’t politicise Rohith suicide : Union Minister

Rohith-VemulaUnion Social Justice and Empowerment Minister Thaawar Chand Gehlot has told not to politicise Hyderabad University Research Scholar Rohith Vemula death ,who committed suicide on Jan 17th.

He said, Rohith was not a Dalit and his family are an OBC as they belong to Vaddera caste and parties should stop politicising his death for their own gains.

He said, Rohith was born in 1990 and got his Dalit certificate in July 2014 ,after almost 25 years . Even Union ministers Sushma Swaraj and Jual Oram had claimed that Vemula was not a Dalit.

He questioned, Why Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal and others have rushed to the varsity? Why other 9 students who committed suicide in same campus did not become a issue?.
