BJP is stooping to the lowest level of politics with their hate propaganda against Dalits. Now BJP targetted Radhika Vemula, mother of Rohith Vemula, who is still fighting for justice for Rohith Vemula, and has characterized her as a person earning money by doing politics over her son’s dead body. It went even further and said that she may even go to Rajya Sabha. This is utterly insane and atrocious.
Radhika Vemula, has inspired people across the country by rejecting the compensation of 8 lakh rupees offered by University of Hyderabad, because she doesn’t want to accept the compensation from the culprit Podile Apparao, who is accused under SC/ST Prevention of Atrocities Act and Abetment to suicide of Rohith Vemula, and the harassment and atrocities against five dalit research scholars. BJP, which is shielding the accused in the suicide and harassment of Rohith Vemula has roped some of its paid casteist persons to target Radhikamma who is still fighting for Justice for her son. In the immediate case, the abuse on Radhika Vemula is initiated through Surya Pratap Singh is a hardcore casteist who was a member of Bharatiya Jana Yuva Morcha (BJYM), Uttar Pradesh Unit, Anti-Reservation front, Sanghatan Manthri, Akhil Bharatiya Kshtriya Mahasabha.
Such a behavior of BJP clearly reflects the anti-dalit and anti-woman stance of BJP and sangh pariwar. On one hand when Radhika Vemula is continuously grieving over her son’s death, BJP is adding more pain to the existing wound by such hurtful remarks and shielding culprits. They are creating every day hurdles for her. They targeted her son as anti-national and now terming her as opportunistic, they have misled the people of the nation by branding Rohith vemula as an OBC, yesterday their cadres attempted to attack her at UNA in Gujarat. Such constant attack against Radhika Vemula and Dalits by BJP should not be tolerated.
