The student union president of the Government Commerce College Kota staged a symbolic protest on Friday making a buffalo inaugurate the student union office. The ceremony was marked with the presence of a buffalo carrying a placard with ‘Principal’ written on it as a sign of agitation against college administration for delay in approval of inauguration of the office.

While dignitaries are made chief guest at inauguration of student union office but in this particular ceremony a buffalo was made the chief dignitary at Government Commerce College Kota (GCCK). Student Union President of the GCCK, Prafful Pathak, who belongs to National Student Union of India ( NSUI), l ead by his supporters and a Buffalo which symbolised the college principal, was taken through a round in the student union office for the inauguration ceremony.

Pathak along with his entourage later locked the principal’s office after taking him out. Informing about this unique protest, Pathak said, the College administration was behaving like a buffalo by not responding to our repeated request calls for conducting inauguration ceremony of the new student union executive office in the stipulated time.

He said that almost six months have already passed since the student union elections was held and last date for inauguration was 31st January, so the union was forced to take such step.

The GCCK principal, Harlal Meena however said the student union leaders within the elected executive union are not unanimous and belong to different ideologies which are delaying the process but college administration is trying to build unanimity among them.
