Central leaders of Awami League along with the acting president and the general secretary of Chhatra League met with the Prime Minister at the Prime Minister's official residence Ganabhaban on Tuesday night regarding the incident in BUET.

No other government has taken such immediate action into incidents like this. There will be justice according to the law, she said.
Sheikh Hasina said, once there was use of arms at Dhaka University. When we came to power, we stopped it. What we did for education, no government after 1975 ever did. There is no arms in campuses, no disturbanc.
The Prime Minister advised Chhatra League to remain 'silent' about the ongoing movement in BUET and said, "We are not doing politics with the incident. Chhatra League or the government did not favor the criminals. Therefore, Chhatra League has to be careful so that no one can give the movement political color.
She said the government has done everything that it had to do regarding the incident. Now there is none to use arms in educational institutions. Those who don't like it can try to destablize up the campus.
