After Irani was transferred to the Textiles ministry, Kumar said justice had not been served to Vemula, who committed suicide in Hyderabad. "Justice for Rohith is still awaited. Cabinet reshuffle is not punishment... Bye bye Smriti Irani," he tweeted.

Kumar further said that he did not have "much hopes" from Javadekar, but he would meet him and put forth various demands of the student community.
