NEW DELHI, Feb 27: The opposition Congress on Saturday decided to move a privilege motion against HRD minister Smriti Irani for misleading parliament over the JNU row and the death of a Dalit student in Hyderabad university. “The Congress will move a privilege motion against the HRD minister for misleading the parliament,” Congress general secretary Mukul Wasnik told reporters here at a press conference jointly addressed by former union ministers Kumari Selja and Manish Tewari. “The minister has not only been economical with the truth but has also wilfully misled the parliament on the unfortute suicide of a young Dalit student, Rohith Vemula,” he added. Wasnik also said that the statement of Irani in parliament was contrary to the claims made by Rohith’s mother. (IANS)
