The Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) staged a protest this evening (9) seeking certain demands including increased scholarships, from the Visual and Performing Arts University to the Presidential Secretariat.
It has been quite a while since the IUSF launched a protest demanding university students rights, whereas this was the first since the new government came to power.
However, instead of being treated with all time familiar teargas and escalated mob attacks, the protesters were welcomed with open arms by the officials of the Presidential Secretariat, to everyone's astonishment.
Apparently, the strategic approach of the President upon the protest staged by the IUSF turned out successful.
