New Delhi: The family of Dalit student Rohith Vemula, who committed suicide in Hyderabad, on Wednesday urged Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to provide a government job to his younger brother.
“Rohith's mother requested the chief minister to provide a government job to the brother as the family does not have any source of income,” a Delhi government official said.
