New Delhi: BSP supremo on Friday in Rajya Sabha said that she wasn’t satisfied with the answer of HRD Minister Smriti Irani on whether a Dalit is a part of the committee that is looking into Rohith Vemula suicide case or not.
Today the Rajya Sabha again witnessed a heated argument between the two over Dalit PhD scholar’s suicide case. Mayawati asked Irani whether the latter would behead herself as her response was “unsatisfactory”.
“Our party is not at all satisfied with the answers of Smriti Irani over the death case of Rohit Vemula. She had said on Feb 24 that if her answers are not satisfactory then she would cut her head and lay it on the feet of the BSP supremo. I want to remind her would she fulfill her promise now?,” Mayawati questioned.
On Wednesday, to Mayawati’s persistent demands, Irani had said, “I am ready to reply to all questions. First you allow the discussion… You are senior to me. You are a woman. If you want, I am ready to reply. If you are not satisfied with my reply, I am ready to behead myself and lay it on your feet.”
Irani has accused the opposition of using a “dead child” (Rohith) as “a political tool and strategy”.
