She said “Due to the continuous movement students have been upset, exhausted. Let them recover a little. If they say they want to sit down after few days, then so be it. This movement is an expression of their grievances. Where the main problem is, we students, teachers, administration, we will all address it together.”

Responding to a question from reporters about the resignation of the VC of SUST, Education Minister said that the resignation of the VC was another matter. He was appointed by President.
