The General Secretary of the NCP, D P Tripathi recently defended the CPI (M) politburo decision to support Mr. Pranab Mukherjee for the Presidential elections. This blog by a former Executive Committee member of SFI-JNU unit is a rejoinder to Tripathi's essay.
In the last few days, Pragoti has highlighted the ongoing debates within the Left student movement in JNU, particularly noting the political-organisational perspectives from a vibrant left student community in JNU that raises important questions and issues concerning the Left-democratic movement in general. In this context, the latest resolution passed by SFI-JNU is an addition to the ongoing debate.
"The SFI national leadership's move to dissolve the entire unit reeks of authoritarianism, a lack of appreciation of the political impulse of the students of JNU, and a violation of its own stated aims of mass organisation independence". A short blogpost on the events related to the SFI-JNU unit recently.
