    trying to win cheap brownie points, why wait all this time?

    He was questioned about this sometime back by the newpaper editors and said that the Higher Education Minister will look into this. Even Gota had expressed comments about it. So he can't claim that he wasn't aware of this.

    Hypocrisy at its best.

    President of the country can order for illegally remanded students, is it the law of the country or will he accept that illegal arrest is under his order.
