“We demand the withdrawal of all sorts of VAT on education. With due respect, we are rejecting the government clarification which said that VAT would be paid by the private universities and not the students, as the VAT will later be collected from us under the name of other fees.”

Speaking at the press conference in the capital’s Aftabnagar neighbourhood, Salauddin Mithu, a student protester from East West University, said.

“With the exception of a few, the conditions of most private universities are bad. Although the owners claim the universities to be non-profit institutions, they have turned out to be profitable institutions in present time. So, the owners should pay VAT."

Awami League leader Suranjit Sengupta said.

“I also told him that I was not going to ask him if I would act fast or slow and I was doing what I understood well. I think I was threatened as I have planned to stop illegal VoIP business and also to block unregistered SIM cards.”

State Minister for Posts and Telecommunications Division Tarana Halim told the caller, who gave her threat.
