New Delhi, Feb. 24: Rohith Vemula’s mother Radhika today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi could never feel her pain as he does not have any children and threatened to end her life if students protesting against caste-based discrimination are harassed.
“Modi has no child nor wife. How can he realise the pain of a mother who has lost her young son?” Radhika said after police detained around 200 students who were trying to hold a candlelight protest near India Gate.
The students, many of them from the University of Hyderabad where the Dalit scholar committed suicide last month, were told to leave as soon as they reached close to the protest venue. The police then took them in buses to Tilak Marg police station and Parliament Street police station. They were later freed.
