The Prime Minister says that he can feel the agony of Rohith Vemula’s mother,  greeted with slogans by students who asked him to "go back". Breaking his silence on the suicide of Rohith Vemula, PM Modi on Friday said he could feel the agony of the Dalit scholar’s family. Meanwhile, his speech at the 6th convocation of the Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University here, was greeted with negative slogans by students who asked him to “go back.” 

I am proud that India is a nation of the youth, its dreams and resolve are young. But at the same time we get the news that a young son of this country, Rohith, was compelled to commit suicide, PM Modi said. After a long pause, a visibly emotional PM continued: “What must have his family gone through. Mother India lost a dear son. Reasons and politics aside, the truth is that a mother has lost a son. I can very well feel the agony. Just as the PM took the dais, a few students raised anti-Modi slogans. They were removed by security personnel and detained.
