The Higher Education Commission opposes the restoration of student unions

"We want rehabilitation of student unions so that the problems faced by the students in the campus will be resolved," She said.
She said that the students of this country need student politics which guarantees them the rights of the students on campus and the right of political expression and dissent.

Tooba Syed further said that students have a historical role in the development and development of any country and removing them from it is unconstitutional.
