BJP takes tough stand on JNU, Rohith in Parliament

New Delhi: BJP took on the combined opposition might on Wednesday brushing off Rohith Vemula suicide controversy and defending its action on JNU.

Leading the BJP charge, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani asked BSP chief Mayawati not to use a ‘dead child’ for politics. BSP forced Rajya Saba to adjourn a few times to protest the suicide of Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula.


Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad defended the Centre’s action against a few JNU students and said slogans, which called for the destruction of India could not be tolerated.

“The opposition should decide if they are with martyrs or with anti-India forces,” he said.

Other BJP leaders such as MPs RK Singh and Anurag Thakur also drove the point home.

Singh called for strict action against those raising anti-national slogans. Thakur blamed Congress for putting family interest ahead of the nation’s.


  1. If someone has raised anti-national and slogans for sedition of certain state (or states) and if the police has ample proof, these students or elements, they should be arrested, prosecuted and, if found guilty, punished.

    I heard that Mrs. Smriti Irani, who suffers from lapse of memory as regards completing H.S.C. or having graduated and from which stream, lectured the opposition for supporting students and on other issues. As I see she has no credibility and she is not qualified to head the H.R.D Ministry. In the same vein, sanyasis and sanyasins should not be the MPs and given official cars. They should beg for alms and use the Walker’s Express. How can Mrs. Smriti Irani talk to college and school principals, professors, lecturers, teachers and others when she does not have the required qualification, other than being a model and an actress in a television serial?

    The only Minister in BJP that I have regards for is Mr. Manohar Parrikar, the Minister of Defence. He is a simple and honest man, who performed very well as the Chief Minister of Goa and I am confident that he is an efficient Minister of Defence, certainly far better than Mr. A.K. Antony, any day. He does not have the exaggerated and VIP mentality that most netas suffer from and he is an I.I.T. from Mumbai.

    Smriti Irani is very communal-minded and even in the earlier BJP government there was Murali Manohar Joshi, who presently has been marginalized and side-lined, who had tried to saffronize education and also poke his nose in the functioning of the world famous IITs.

  2. One has to wonder why minority groups and some of the political parties are supporting anti-national elements? India wouldn’t survive without unapologetic forces like BJP and RSS.

  3. India wouldn’t survive without unapologetic forces like BJP and RSS. – Rampa

    I know ya Rampa.

    It was the RSS who with their bare hands & even-more-bare Lathis chased away the Pakistanis in all the wars fought thus far. I’m truly gladdened that somebody remembers his History so well. Deenanath Bhatra & Smriti Irani would indeed be proud of you.

    Jai Rampa Ki 🙂
