Rohith vemula was a brave student

The response was amazing. Several students and activists turned up in such big numbers. When asked aboutMumbai campuses26-year-old Prashanth Dontha, a PhD student of economics at the University of Hyderabad (Uoh), a friend of Rohith Vemula's and a fellow member of the Ambedkar Student's Association, was also expelled alongside him five days before Rohith's suicide on Jan 17. He was in the city to support Monday's protest for Justice for Rohith. The movement is still on. We have given the university and the government a week's time to respond to our demands. If they do not do so, we will all—students from universities across the country—go to Delhi next week for a big protest against the government and the HRD ministry. We have given this deadline keeping in mind that students should not be under pressure due to the issue. The struggle has almost completed a month despite which we have not received any response. We are happy at the way this movement has picked up in several cities especially in Mumbai, which is the land of Babasaheb, which still has attachment towards the thoughts that he has propagated. This has converged into a national movement where we are together demanding justice for Rohith. The student community is united on this issue. We want justice for the institutional murder. He Said The ABVP is saying don't bring politics into the issue. But in reality, they were the ones who brought politics into the issue. In the case of UoH, The Union Minister who has no jurisdiction in the internal issues of UoH suddenly became so concerned about these right-wing people, who had no facts against us. In fact, what Rohith wanted and we all want is democratising institutes that are now autonomous and autocratic. Despite being educated, even the top academicians believe in parampara (traditions) and do not think rationally. Those who speak against this, their voices are crushed
