Hyderabad, December 16: Actor and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan again trained his guns on BJP-led government at the Centre, blaming it for the suicide of Rohith Vemula.
For the second consecutive day today, he took to twitter to launch an attack on BJP.
After series of tweets on cow slaughter yesterday, he choose the issue of the suicide of Dalit research scholar of Hyderabad Central University to target BJP.
“There is no doubt that Rohit Vemula hated BJP like millions of individuals. But that doesn’t give them license to harass individuals who doesn’t align or against them and that when his form of protest was within the democratic means. This applies to any group or party not to BJP alone,” he tweeted.
“Even if Rohith Vemula had said something in haste about saffornization with his university rival groups, Centre could have just seen it as a part of the ongoing students’ ideological disagreement. And if their rivalry was causing law and order issues then they could have let the concerned authority to enforce the disciplinary measures. But centre took it personally in this case for reasons unknown,” he remarked in an obvious reference to interference by central ministers Bandaru Dattatreya, Smriti Irani and other BJP leaders.
“So the punishment meted out to Rohith Vemula through suspension and alienation from campus driven him to suicide and also due to lack of much needed moral support from within his own group made him more vulnerable,” Pawan tweeted.
“May be Rohith Vemula’s anger and disappointment stemmed from the realization of non-existent egalitarian society. A proper student counseling with a humane approach would have saved an intelligent student who was of philosophical in nature,” the actor added.
“The most tragic part of Rohith Vemula suicide was when anti-BJP parties were busy trying to gain a political mileage out of it and BJP and its allies were busy proving that Rohith was not a Dalit. But all of them have forgotten to answer. How to prevent such young lives from committing suicides in future.? … out of despair, disappointment and resentment..’”
