"Students' sufficient accommodation and transport facilities, modernised libraries and laboratories, regular classes and exams, proper students-teachers ratio, transparency in teachers' recruitment, fair evaluation of exam papers, safe food and water and security on the campus should be ensured," said BCL representatives drawing from 32 public universities of the country.
