Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said that it is “sad” to know that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was getting Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula’s “caste” probed rather than his suicide.

The AAP chief said irrespective of the findings of the Roopanwal Commission, which has submitted its report into the case to the HRD Ministry, people are “convinced” that BJP is “anti-dalit” and that “Modi believes that dalits and backwards are not nationalists.”

“Modiji, whatever be commission report, ppl convinced that BJP anti-dalit. Sad you are investigating caste rather than suicide. According to PM, all dalits and backwards are not nationalists,” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
