Please do not make uninformed comments in the name of "debate".. if you were really debating, you would have read a few lines ahead in the same piece and come across this line, "
"We are definitely for reservation of jobs for dalits and backward castes. But this support of ours is not a support for VP Singh's shrewd political moves. Neither is it a support for the Lohiaite theory where the concept of socialism has been degraded to the politics of backwardism.
Our support for reservation does not mean rallying the dalits behind the aggressive backward castes in the latter's caste war. Neither does it mean subordinating the red flag to the green flag, the hammer-and-sickle to the wheel."
Please debate on facts, and DO NOT mischievously misread nuanced arguments! For years, SFI has tried to tell students in JNU that AISA is anti-reservation, has the tactic worked?? Students in JNU preferred to believe what they saw happening - AISA working hard to implement OBC reservations, AISA fighting for deprivation points in 1993, and ALSO SFI abstaining from a resolution supporting Mandal Commission recommendations in toto!! We have not forgotten that for two long years, SFI refused to say ONE WORD about the wrong cut-off criteria which was resulting in the scuttling of OBC reservations.
You see, spreading slander and lies will not work. Wonder till when SFI and CPI(M) will continue with this absurd Mandal Kamandal lie! Actually, maybe they should continue with the lie, after all it exposes their style of politics better than anything else!!!!
