Quota reform protest ends on a high note

The government, reluctantly, responded with a positive decision to the demands of students regarding the quota system. Although students only asked for reforming the system, the government decided to abolish it altogether. Nonetheless, the prime minister also assured there will be special provisions for certain sections of our society.

The unofficial announcement from the government initially triggered a sceptical response from students. Ultimately, the protesters accepted the decision, thanking the prime minister. We are delighted that the standoff ended without causing any major disaster.
