Yesterday, hitting out at the opposition for attacking her for the suicide of Rohith Vemula, Smriti Irani has given a fiery and powerful speech in the Parliament House. Her speech was full of aggression and emotions.
Hitting out at Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, she said “Have You ever seen him visiting the same place twice? Never. But he visited Hyderabad twice. And even Rohith, in his suicide note had mentioned that no one is responsible for my death, yet you used the child as a political tool,” said Smriti Irani.
Smriti Irani vehemently refuted the allegations that Rohith was was forced to commit suicide because he was persecuted by the university authorities and the central government since he was a Dalit. “My name is Smriti Irani and I challenge you to tell my caste,” thunders Smriti.
Smriti Irani had delivered around an hour long speech. And for her impressive speech, she was praised by PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
Here are the tweets by Rajnath Singh and PM Narendra Modi praising Smriti Irani for her powerful speech:
