Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Saturday said any anarchic activity by the students of public universities is not acceptable at all as they are availing of the education facility with public money.
"Indiscipline is not acceptable, never. All must follow rules, if anyone wants to get education from any public institution he or she has to abide by the rules and regulations of that educational institution and act accordingly. That’s what we want from the students as does the nation," she said.
The Prime Minister said this while inaugurating “7 March Bhaban”, a newly constructed residential building for female students inside Rokeya Hall of Dhaka University (DU).
In Bangladesh, she said, a student avail of the higher education probably at the cheapest cost in the world. "And all the education expenses are borne by the government….100 percent expenses are provided by the government. I don't know whether this exists in any other countries of the world. So, the students must honour this system.”
Chaired by DU Vice Chancellor Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman, the function was addressed, among others, by Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid, University Grants Commission chairman Prof Abdul Mannan, DU Pro-Vice Chancellor (Academic) Professor Dr. Nasreen Ahmad, DU Pro-Vice Chancellor (Administration) Prof. Dr. Muhammad Samad, DU Treasurer Prof Dr M Kamal Uddin and Rokeya Hall Provost Prof Dr Jinat Huda.
