Students go on the rampage on not getting admit cards
THE STUDENTS of Banshraj Degree College in Motiram Adda went on a rampage, damaged furniture and created ruckus in the college on Friday as the college administration failed to distribute admit cards to around 200 students of BA III.
Vice-Chancellor Prof Arun Kumar, along with other senior district officials, rushed to the spot to control the situation.
The trouble started when around 200 students of BA III reached the college office to get their admit cards but found that neither the principal of the college nor any other employee was present in the office.
The impatient students waited for at least an hour and then they went on the rampage and started damaging the furniture to express their anger over the apathetic attitude of the college staff.
Later, the irate students blocked Gorakhpur-Deoria national highway for a few hours and raised slogans against the college officials. According to reports, the college students were told to collect their admit card on Friday but no one was present to distribute the cards on Friday and this triggered off the trouble.
The examinations of BA III are scheduled from Saturday.
District officials and university authorities assured the students that alternative arrangement for admit cards would be made and no one would be barred from appearing in the examinations.
On the assurance of the district officials, the road blockade was removed after mild lathicharge.
It may be noted that unruly scenes were also witnessed at the Convocation Hall of the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gorakhpur University when the girl students reached there to get their admit cards on March 17.
Meanwhile, Examination controller Dr Ajay Kumar Srivastav said that all the students of Medieval History would be allowed to appear in the examinations after showing the counterfolio of their examination form.
