Human Resources Development Minister Smriti Irani got emotional during her speech on Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula death case in Parliament. "It was not a written speech. It was not something I had prepared for. In fact it was just like outpouring of whatever I had gone through, whatever I had observed. And I think that a lot many people did not know all the facts and were quite taken aback because I carried with me papers so that this is not termed as you are saying. And I was clear that if I have to put forth my point of view, I wanted it to be backed by evidence. So I took it," said Irani.
