On if the Workers will try to stop examination from holding, he said” Well, I cannot answer that, only the Vice Chancellor and Academics fix examination dates but if they feel students can write examinations without light in the Academic area, then let’s look on or if they feel they can write examinations without basic things, it is left to the Vice Chancellor “.
