Radhika Vemula (L), Rohith Vemula's mother

Giving a clean chit to Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) Radhika Vemula, Rohith Vemula's mother said on Wednesday that she spoke against Prime Minister Narendra Modi without any pressure from anyone. 

“It's true that Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) promised to provide me with money, but they haven't used me for political gains. It was my wish to speak against PM Modi & if needed I will speak again in any of their meeting,” Radhika Vemula said reported ANI.

“Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) sent us two cheques of Rs 2.5 lakh out of which one has bounced. We informed them & they said they will directly provide us money so that we can buy a house,” she added. 

However, giving it an altogether a different angle Union Minister Piyush Goyal held a press conference here on Wednesday and hit out at the Opposition for giving a political colour to the death of Hyderabad Central University student Rohith Vemula and exploiting his mother's grief for some "very low level of politics". 

He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) condemns all such types of attempts to make a political issue out of a sad incident and that Congress president Rahul Gandhi should apologise for this.

“I was anxious after reading Rohith Vemula's mother's statement. Till when some opposition parties will continue politics over it? The family is not financially stable & fake assurance of money was provided to a distressed mother for political purposes,” he said, reported ANI.

“Indian Union Muslim League made fake promises to provide them Rs 20 lakh & asked them (Rohith Vemula's family) to address their rallies & misrepresent the unfortunate incident & then not completed that promise. This is condemnable,” he added.
