After Dalit student Rohith Vemula’s mother charged Union Minister Smriti Irani with lying in Parliament about her son’s suicide, Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said the Centre was “cultivating falsehood” to divide the society.

“In the backdrop of Rohith Vemula’s mother Radhika’s outcry that the HRD Minister Smriti Irani had twisted facts during reply to debate in Parliament on suicide by her son, a scholar of Hyderabad University, it has become clear that the Centre cultivates falsehood and indulges in rumour mongering to divide the society,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an official function.

Kumar was reqsponding to queries on the statement made by Radhika Vemula two days ago in which she had accused Irani of resorting to “blatant lies” while talking about her son’s suicide in Parliament.
