Pm Modi On Rohit Vemula Suicide: A Mother Has Lost Her Son, I Feel The Pain

New Delhi: Jan 22; Breaking his silence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday voiced his grief over the suicide of a Dalit student in Hyderabad Central University, even as some students raised slogans during his speech.

 "...when there is news that a youth of my country, Rohith, was compelled to commit suicide, what his family must have gone through. Mother India has lost a son. There will be reasons, there will be politics (surrounding it) but the fact remains that a mother has lost her son. I feel the pain very well," a visibly emotional Modi said.

He was speaking as the Chief Guest at the convocation ceremony of the B R Ambedkar University in Lucknow, which was marred by protest by two students, who were evicted by police as they shouted slogans like "Modi murdabad" and "Modi go back, Modi go back".
