    Very true. To stop this nonsense with our tax money they should be asked to pay a fees proportionately or give them a bank loan to be paid after employment. These students wasting their time and our money and time both.

    We work hard, send our children to private education and pay taxes to educate these trouble makers. This should stop now.

    What a damn inconvenience to the public. These protests and demonstrations are becoming a pain in the bum. Traffic congestion and waste of our time and money.

    These students never understood government spending money on them to educate . Government spending doctors and engineers at least 5 million per head to educate them . Which is include building maintenance staffs bills and etc. These kind of activities can be stopped if government charge them money.

    My3 will issue a statement saying that he didn't know police was using tear gas and he'll ask for report as usual.
