Further commenting on the protest, another protester, Akhilesh, said, “We have lost 11 colleagues over a period of time, but the government is not addressing our genuine demand.”

Several protesters echoed the sentiment that while the government is hoping that they will stop their protest in time, they claim that they will not end their protest unless their demand is met.

Another protester, commenting on the situation, said, “We don’t have money to pay rent. How will we send our kids to school? I have been suffering from a vital disease and every week I have to consult a doctor, but I don’t have money to pay the hefty medical bills.”
