It’s Mayawati versus Smriti Irani over Rohith Vemula’s death, the two leaders sparred in parliament over the probe panel investigating the student’s death.
Mayawati fired the first salvo, alleging a govt conspiracy to shield accused in case. She said that government’s probe panel has no Dalit member in it and exposes its anti-Dalit mindset.
Smriti counter Mayawati saying that the BSP chief herself had told her that the uproar was all about politics.
Mayawati demanded that a Dalit should be made a member to ensure fair probe amidst the din. She slammed the government for appointing a one-man judicial Commission of former Allahabad High Court judge Ashok Kumar Roopanwal.
