The Indian president Pranab Mukherjee disclosed the statue in June this year to check the well disposed ties between the two nations.

College staff in September started a crusade calling the Indian pioneer supremacist. The appeal says "it is ideal to go to bat for our poise than to kowtow to the desires of a blossoming Eurasian super power", and quotes entries composed by Gandhi which say Indians are "boundlessly unrivaled" to dark Africans.
