In perspective on that, he pleaded with students who actually have their belongings in their separate rooms to come for them.
“Let me utilize this occasion to appeal to students, who actually have their belongings at the halls, its indeed affecting a ton of work going on, as you probably are aware when school is in break, we do some maintenance, but since certain students actually have their belongings it is hard to send artisan to proceed to work.”
