NEW DELHI: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Wednesday accused the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of suppressing the voice of Dalits with the help of  the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Government at the Centre.

Commenting on Rohith Vemula’s suicide at the University of Hyderabad, BSP supremo Mayawati said the varsity’s administration and students, along with the RSS and the BJP, were responsible for the Dalit student’s suicide.

“In Hyderabad University issue, our party holds the administration, students, two ministers at the Centre and their RSS organisation responsible for it. This is not the first case of Dalit student suicide in Hyderabad University, even during the Congress regime, several Dalits were oppressed and they committed suicide,” she told reporters outside Parliament here.
