'Bharat Jodo Yatra': Rohith Vemula's mother joins March, extends solidarity

Bharat Jodo Yatra: Rohith Vemulas mother joins March, extends solidarity

Hyderabad: Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, remembered the Dalit student who committed suicide in 2016 as a result of alleged harassment by saying on Tuesday at the party's Bharat Jodo Yatra, "Rohith Vemula is and will be a symbol of my struggle against social discrimination and injustice."

Radhika Vemula, Rohith's mother, met Gandhi and briefly accompanied him on the Yatra.

"Extended solidarity to Bharat Jodo Yatra, walked with Rahul Gandhi, and called upon Congress to save Constitution from BJP-RSS assault, Justice for Rohith Vemula, passing Rohith Act, increasing representation of Dalits, oppressed sections in the higher judiciary, education for all," Radhika Vemula tweeted after the meeting.

In a tweet in Hindi after meeting Vemula's mother, Gandhi said, "Rohith Vemula is and will remain a symbol of my struggle against social discrimination and injustice. By meeting Rohith's mother, the steps towards the goal of the journey gained new courage as well as the mind got peace, the former Congress chief said.

The Congress from its official Twitter handle and several party leaders tweeted pictures of Radhika Vemula walking with Gandhi during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

The death of the 26-year-old Dalit student on January 17, 2016, triggered a nationwide agitation against casteism in institutions of higher learning.

Gandhi had joined the student protests over the suicide of Rohith Vemula.
