'Universities will decide if they will allow politics on campus'

Education Minister Dipu Moni said universities will decide whether they will allow organization-based student politics on university campuses or not.

The lawmaker elected from the Chandpur-3 constituency made the comment at the circuit house in the district on Saturday morning in reply to a query by journalists regarding the murder of Buet student Abrar Fahad.

Dipu Moni said, '' Universities which operate under the 1973 ordinance, will take the decision according to the ordinance and those that run under their own laws and regulations will decide on whether to ban organization-based politics according to that.''

The misuse of power and bad politics is likely to be blamed for the incident at Buet, she added.

Dipu Moni also emphasized on the need for more awareness among people to ensure that politics is practiced in a healthy manner.
