Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina said the authorities of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) can impose ban on student politics if the university wants to do it.

Sheikh Hasina said this while addressing a press conference on Wednesday afternoon at her official residence Ganabhaban to inform about her recent visit to India and the United States.

The Prime Minister said, "If any educational institution wants to ban student politics it can do but we will not impose ban on student politics. Students have a leading role in every movement of the country. If BUET wants to ban student politics it can do it."

She said the leadership of our country has emerged from student politics. She has come here doing student politics and for this, they are working for the country.

"It does not mean to blame student politics for the incident happened at BUET. It is not politics. Where is the politics here? Torture cells at all educational institutions across the country will be searched out," said Sheikh Hasina.

"I have confidence in myself; what I do is for the benefit, for the goodness of the people," she continued.
