"Vice Chancellor Appa Rao, an accused in the suicide of Hyderabad Dalit student Rohith Vemula and who had gone on leave in the wake of the tragedy, has been reportedly reinstated by the Human Resources Development Ministry", Manjhi said at a press conference here.

"The Union Government's intention does not appear clean in the incident", Manjhi, former Chief Minister of Bihar and a prominent Dalit leader, said.
"We strongly condemn this," Manjhi, whose party HAM is a partner of BJP in the NDA coalition, said.

"If the Prime Minister is sensitive towards Dalits, he should intervene. VC Appa Rao should not be reinstated till the probe is over. If he is found innocent, than he can be appointed anywhere," Manjhi added.
