Frustrated Cong Shedding Crocodile Tears Over Rohith's Suicide: BJP

New delhi: Jan 30; The BJP accused Congress, on Saturday, of shedding "crocodile tears" over the suicide of a Dalit scholar, saying party vice-president Rahul Gandhi was using students as a "political tool" after he joined them at the Hyderabad Central University for a day-long fast.

Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu said nine cases of Dalit student suicides had taken place in the campus during the UPA rule but Rahul never bothered to go there as he asked opposition parties to wait for the report of the judicial commission probe ordered by the Centre into the suicide.

"Congress is shedding crocodile tears simply to gain political mileage. Congress and communist parties are trying to make this a political issue and making a beeline to the university, forgetting that 9 such incidents happened during the UPA rule. This is part of their anti-Modi campaign across the country," he told reporters.
