Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday urged the public university teachers not to hamper the academic activities of students by enforcing any strike in their universities. "There is no reason to be unhappy after a salary hike by 123 per cent … teachers shouldn't continue movement hampering the students' academic life," she said while addressing a rally at Suhrawardy Udyan marking the Bangabandhu's Homecoming Day.
Over the recent protests by students and teachers against Metro Rail route through Dhaka University campus, Hasina said the route is chosen for the benefit of students. About war criminals, she said a section is out to obstruct their trial but no conspiracy can thwart that.
"Khaleda politically rehabilitated those who were against the country's independence. Ziaur Rahman came to power violating the constitution…he was an illegal president, so is his party," she added, according to UNB. -Mithun
