    A bankrupt political party is behind this move. Many citizens know that in 1971 and 1987/88, how many university students died as a result of insurgency. Do not allow that to happen, nip the issue in the bud itself. If they are given free education they should make use of it without behaving miserably.

    95% do not know what the issue of SAITM really is. Media should ask some in the crowd and expose them. Nepal B'desh all have private Medical Colleges and our students go there. See the misadventures of the GMOA doctors recently with all their statements
