HYDERABAD:  Taking strong objection to Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi blaming the Centre for the suicide of University of Hyderabad student (UoH) V Rohith, health minister Kamineni Srinivas alleged that Rahul was trying to politicise the issue for selfish gain. “Several students committed suicide in UoH in the past but Rahul had never cared to visit their family members. Since, he wants to defame the NDA government, now he is shedding crocodile tears,” Srinivas alleged. Addressing media persons here on Wednesday, the health minister said a student committing suicide is a serious issue but cashing it for political gain is not in good taste.
