The Students Movement strongly criticized the company as it does not respect the country's flag, saying such an attitude is violation against the state symbols. The movement's representative protested TT Company because it has created confusion in the country. Such an attitude, showing that TT Company does not respect the country's national symbols, Students representative said during a press conference which was held yesterday.
