THERE WAS ruckus outside the Vaishnav College at Gumasta Nagar this morning after the college management denied students of Vaishnav Commerce College, who were led by ABVP activists, permission to hold a function to mark Swami Vivekanand’s birth anniversary.
To thwart any further trouble, the police arrested 30 activists and booked them under Section 151 and 107 of IPC. All of them were released after a few hours. The college management and trustees had got whiff that there might be some trouble due to denial of permission and they had called in police force for protection.
The ABVP activists led by student leader Jaideep Gaur, who is related to local BJP leader Laxman Singh Gaud, shouted slogans against the management and reportedly abused one of the senior trustees.
The ABVP activists of the Vaishnav Commerce College argued that even though the auditorium was in the Vaishnav Management Institute building (both the colleges are on the same campus), it had earlier been decided at a meeting with the ADM that students of both colleges would be allowed to use the auditorium. The activists said that the management withdrew from its commitment at the last moment.
Meanwhile, Vaishnav Management Institute director J R Bhatti and Vaishnav Commerce College principal S C Bhargava said that they had never given permission to the students of the Commerce College to hold their functions in the management institute’s auditorium. They said both colleges have their own auditorium, which they should use.
Moreover, semester exam was going on at the management institute,
