We Indian share a nationalistic pride for our policies of equality, fraternity and brotherhood. However, the current conceptof group based reservations leads us to the same drawbacks of a divided society which the founders of our constitution havealways tried to overcome.The most important reform that is required in the present situation is a departure from thepresent "Group Centric" affirmative action to "Individual Centric" benefits. At present benefits are being extended toa "class" (correctly described as "caste") which has resulted in formation of unholy "caste based" lobbies which is not in theinterest of one Nation State. At the outset, this groupism has to be disbanded and therefore emphasis on extension of benefitshas to shift from "the conditions that a group satisfies" to the conditions that "an individual satisfies" for claiming benefits ofstate protection. Thus the state thereafter has to lay down secular conditions which apply to all individual irrespective oftheir caste, religion, sex, place of birth etc. The individuals satisfying these conditions would thereafter be collectively calledthe "Backward Classes" to muster the Constitutional mandate.In the words of Pandit Nehru, "……I don't particularly like the words "backward classes of citizens" and I hope the selectcommittee will find some better wording. What I mean is this; it is the backward individual citizen that we should help. Whyshould we brand groups and classes as backward and forward……"Every individual has a right to growth, and equal and probable opportunities should be provided to each and every individual.But the growth of an individual cannot really be mapped one to one with the growth of a group (as in the present scenario ofthe country). “Forward” and “Backwardis not an absolute term. It’s a relative term and in the present concept of India,all of us are either forwards or backwards. Comparing India with any developed nations, Indians can be consideredbackward but if the comparison is done against underdeveloped nations of Africa or Asia, the entire Indian society isdefinitely forward. Hence, an individual group as such in India can neither be classified as forward or backward. It’sthe individuals who are either well off or deprived of basic fundamental rights to education, employment, information,health or growth.

Hence we support reservation based on Individualistic criteria and we are against group basedreservations.There can be numerous criteria to define forwardness and backwardness of an individual. We suggest some of thefollowing criteria of defining the forwardness and backwardness of a citizen (deprivation index of yfe). One can groupthese criteria into five different levels of forwardness and backwardness (1 – Most Forward, 2- Moderately Forward, 3-Neutral, 4- Moderately Backward, 5- Most backward). The criteria can be as follows:
Mother’s Antenatal Check Up (Completed along with intensive care during pregnancy-1, Completed-2, PartiallyCompleted-3, Never completed-4, Never completed and never heard of -5)Birth/Delivery of Child (Delivery at a premier health institute with all the amenities -1, Delivery done at a moderatefacilities hospital -2, Delivery anywhere in the presence of a Gynae doctor – 3, Delivery at home with some seniormembers of the house/society (with someone from the medical background, may be a nurse) -4, Delivery at home withno one knowing/specializing in medical profession – 5)
Mother’s Education (Mother professionally educated – 1, Mother graduate/post graduate – 2, Mother HigherSecondary/High School certified-3, Mother Primary educated -4, Mother uneducated-5)
Father’s Education (Father professionally educated – 1, Father graduate/post graduate – 2, Father Higher Secondary/High School certified-3, Father Primary educated -4, Father uneducated-5)
Total Family Household Income (Wealthy – 1, Above Poverty Line -2, Above Double poverty line -3, BelowPoverty line -4, Below Double Poverty Line -5)
Household Amenities (Well furnished Bungalows with one/multiple 4 wheelers – 1, Well furnished own house with2-4 wheeled vehicles - 2, Well furnished rented house with 2/4 wheeled vehicles -3, small rented house with basicamenities available – 4, kutcha houses/slum houses -5)
City of Residence (Residing in Metropolitan city -1, Residing in Group B Indian Cities/Capitals – 2, Residing indistricts/ big towns -3, Residing in Blocks/Tehsils -4, Residing in village/ remote areas, tribal areas -5)
Area of Residence (Residing in most forward area with 24 hours facilities and provisions– 1, Residing in adequatelygovernment fostered area – 2, Residing in area where required amenities (health/education/important governmentoffices access/internet access/important railway stations/road access) are met -3, Residing in small villages/townswhere living amenities are achievable but after some effort -4, Very difficult commute and arrangement of basic livingamenities- 5)
Child’s Primary Education (Private School with English as medium of instruction -1, Private Schools with Hindi/regional language as medium – 2, Central Government Schools – 3, Government Schools with Local/regional languageas medium – 4, no education/education at home – 5)
Psychological environment of family (Both parents healthy/alive and staying as family – 1, One of the parentsmentally retarded/bed sick but staying together -2, parents healthy but separated/divorced – 3, father dead -4, motherdead -5)11. Gender of individual - Eunuch – 5, female – 3, male - 1

Likewise, a few more criteria can be thought of, discussed and zeroed in on the basis of which individuals can be identified andto whom the social protection and reservation benefits can be extended. Each of these parameters can be graded on a scaleof 1 to 5 and a comprehensive deprivation index can be obtained. This deprivation index will have the strength to pickup the entire true backwards and eliminate false backwards. For example: Daughter of a landless, resource-less, illiteratelaborer from a village in Jharkhand will have all the plus points to avail the benefits of affirmative action policy. In contrast,a convent educated son of rich business manager from Delhi (whatever the caste may be) will not receive any benefit of theaffirmative action plan.

Rural Development Ministry also devised one such method with the help of 13 socio-economic parameters which helped inidentifying the BPL households. Though there were some inclusion and exclusion errors and later on government interfered togive more weight to caste and religion because of which the entire exercise were messed up inviting severe criticism.In Indian society, caste is not the only obstacle in the way of development of an individual. Economic conditions, educationalopportunities and discrimination on the basis of gender also contribute to the denial of opportunity to express one's true meritand worth. It is important, to discuss reservation in the holistic context of much required social restructuring and not toconvert it into a fetish of 'political correctness'. Admittedly, caste remains a social reality and a mechanism of oppression inIndian society. But can we say that caste is the only mechanism of oppression? Can we say with absolute certainty that povertyamongst the so-called upper castes has been eradicated? Can we say that the regions of Northeast, Jharkhand, and Chhattisgarhare on par with the glittering metros of Delhi and Mumbai? Can we say that a student from a panchayat school in Bihar isequipped to compete with an alumnus of Doon School on an equal footing, even if both of them belong to the same castegroup? After all, this society discriminates against girls even before they are born.Such discrimination exists across religious and caste lines. And therefore, time has come now to think beyond caste,class and religion.

Pamphlet 27 October 2009

Greed for power of the Communists hijacked JNU Student Union Election for two consecutive years in a row! Today, the Honorable Supreme Court deferred the hearing of the matter on Lyngdoh Committee Recommendations to 11 November 2009. This means even if a final judgment come on that date, which is almost impossible, JNU cannot conduct election this year considering the end-sem exam and the Winter break of the University. The Lyngdoh Committee recommended that election for the Student Union must be held on or before 20 September of that year. JNU Administration is already facing contempt charges for not implementing Lyngdoh Recommendations and may not like to violate the rule again. In that case, the AISA may again claim illegally that their members elected way back in 2007 are still the JNUSU Office Bearer in 2009. They may do this again and again as it is very beneficial for their cadre and for their leader. Recently one Rajan Pandey, a staunch AISA supporter and office bearer graphically explained about the conduct of AISA. Before resigning from AISA, Rajan had unmasked the real face of AISA. All attempt of AISA portraying themselves as the messiah of the backward classes of people backfired them. How their philosophy is decaying is told by none other than their own office bearer namely, Rajan Pandey.
The administration of JNU is also less concerned about the election as the Administration can take any decision without any opposition in the absence of a student union. Nobody knows when the next election may happen!
Politics produces strange bedfellows! ABVP and NSUI! The former called themselves as patriot and termed AISA as traitor. But the same ABVP supported AISA for non-implementation of Lyngdoh Committee recommendation in JNU and joined the Joint Struggle Committee. Suddenly they realised that like them AISA is not patriot and they must sever their ties with AISA. They did it but not before offering some weird logic. ABVP conceded to the fact that that they want election in JNU with Lyngdoh Recommendation without any delay. The NSUI, which is very proud for its patent in nationalism forwarded major argument against Lyngdoh Recommendation and shared everything with AISA for a long spell of 2008-2009. Abruptly something had happened to the whole of NSUI and they started distancing themselves from the Joint Struggle Committee. More surprises were still waiting as they supported election with Lyngdoh Committee Recommendations. The only group remained loyal to AISA’s scheme of thinking for long was SFI, the poor cousin of AISA. But this bonhomie did not last long and SFI started calling AISA’s illegal office bearers with a ‘new but friendly’ term “unelected JNUSU”. Now SFI is also feeling breathlessness and want election in JNU but they don’t want to support the view of YFE which is now accepted by ABVP and NSUI.
Today also at the Supreme Court when the matter came for hearing, the AISA lawyer never said anything about the Lyngdoh Committee implementation but about the JNU election. This way they managed another hearing and retain their illegal JNUSU tag. YFE counsel M.L Lahoty argued for an end of this imbroglio. The argument of Mr. Lahoty cut ice with the Judges Markanday Katju and A K Ganguly and they gave direction to all the concerned parties to come with a consensus date for next hearing for the final disposal of the matter. This matter can again be dragged for another hearing if AISA and JNU administration may not come out with their submission on or before 11 November 2009. JNU administration’s stand is dubious till date as it is the JNU administration which is responsible for the conduct of election as per the Lyngdoh Recommendation. JNU is unwilling to shoulder the responsibility. So the AISA is having field days during the past one year. There is no restriction on election in JNU if the University authority ensured the implementation of Lyngdoh Recommendation. The Lyngdoh Committee Recommendation praised two universities the JNU and CU, Hyderabad for their election procedure for small campuses but rejected the entirety of their election method.. CU, Hyderabad had already implemented the Lyngdoh Recommendation and it is working nicely there. The same can be replicated in JNU. But the stubbornness of AISA to remain in power illegally was making all effort to conduct student union election ineffective.
Who is suffering the most! It is the common student who is misled by AISA and SFI throughout the year. Mock hunger strike was undertaken at Ad Block by SFI and later the same was suspended without any notice. Lofty claims were made by AISA that election in JNU can be held without adhering to the Lyngdoh Recommendation. But the real intention of AISA was to be remained glued with the power. Now everything is clear to the student of JNU. The communists through their missionary efforts harmed the interest of the student throughout the year. The fee hike issue raised by AISA is no more an issue. With election receding into the background AISA may take this opportunity to celebrate their 1000 days of illegal occupation of JNUSU.

Pamphlet 13.09.2009

“Similar instructions were conveyed last year vide my letter No.23011/26/2008-IF.1 dated 7th July, 2008. However, I regret to say that those instructions were not given required importance”. This is not the wording of Youth For Equality to the various universities of India but the word from the Horse’ mouth. You can find this wording at page no 3 of the much touted MHRD order of 12 September 2009, which is now a raging debate inside the campus. The same MHRD directive issued in the name of Secretary, Higher Education also states that ‘I would, therefore, request you to kindly attend to this personally and ensure that these economy instructions are followed scrupulously’. The very letter which created havoc inside the campus also bear the testimony that last year also similar order passed on to universities but no university bothered to follow that. Why AISA making a mountain out of a molehill?

What happened in JNU after the directive issued by the MHRD? After one month of the 12 September 09 order, the Executive Council of JNU met on 12 October 09. Before this meeting AISA with all its misguiding capacity collected a group of students and marched to the MHRD. On the very day of Executive Council meeting the same AISA with the same misguiding capacity again collected a group of student to shout before the EC meeting at AD block of JNU. SFI came out of confusing pamphlet – half hearted, half supported the 20% resource generation measures and half opposed, NSUI is in utter confusing and even dump their own poster boy Rahul Gandhi in their pamphlet. Only Youth For Equality stood firm and welcomed the 12 September 09 move of MHRD with innovative proposals. YFE asked everybody not to be entrapped with these kinds of politically motivated issues and student must opt for a national approach full of dedication and service to the nation! Finally, the meeting of JNU’s Executive Council held and the very matter never comes for discussion. Forget about the implementation of MHRD proposal, the directive never figure in the agenda of EC meeting. Now all the political parties searching for cover – thinking why their astrological calculation never comes true on the paranoia called FEE HIKE?

Once the OBC quota is fully implemented, JNU will be having 8,000 students. Everybody knows how much they paid during admission - a mere Rs.220 per semester. It is not humanly possible to raise the Rs.220 to such a level that it may cover the 20% resource generation measures from the campus. SFI advocated for the ‘capacity to pay’ theory! They know very well that a DPS school student have to pay Rs.50, 000 while studying in high school and once the same students out of school and in JNU the fee will be Rs.220. This is actually char sau bishi not 220. SFI also lately welcomed the JNU administration’s proposal to sell admission form free of cost to BPL student! What a farce? When the administration providing free admission form to the BPL people they blocked the administration’s attempt to do so as they wanted free JNU form for their rich friends and now they are shedding crocodile tear for the BPL people.

Fee hike is neither an option nor a solution! Even if the administration doubles the existing fee the collection will be not more than Rs.10 Lakh. Moreover, in order to collect the money the administration have to spend nearly the same amount. JNU’s electricity consumption only exceeds Rupees 9 crore per annum. Like this there are many such areas where the amount is hefty and beyond the capacity of the students to think about meeting the same. The MHRD letter is mainly directed against the expenditure in foreign travel, seminars and other avoidable expenses often held in Five Stars or like places. All these measures are to ensure less suffering for our farmer in the countryside who is living with a failed monsoon! How strange it is that the communists are not concerned about the plight of our farmer in advance. But they are very smart people. Once the farmers from the countryside start dying because of poverty and starvation, the communists will come out to the street and speak loudly about the farmers. It is equally strange that the stupid and weightless NSUI is flirting with the AISA’s philosophy of loot and treason.

Pamphlet 30 July 2009, YFE JNU

There is a saying in Hindi ‘Chor Ke Dadi Main Tinka’. Probably this may suit nobody better than the Shameful AISA. We don’t know about which lab of SLS they meant refereeing to the YFE pamphlet, but there must be something fishy, which one or more member/s of the said lab knows and of which the AISA is paranoid! Friends let us talk fact:

    • AISA said twice UGBM extended their term, even then also their term was over in May 2009! Aren’t they ashamed of calling them as JNUSU?

Strange is AISA’s believe on JNU Tradition! Are we going to extend the JNUSU through UGBM for another 40 years to preserve the JNU tradition of last 40 years! When the terms of the JNUSU end? Only AISA knows as they only are well versed in JNU tradition! Another set of facts:

    • If the JNUSU does not require any stamp from the VC, why have not they gone to election in 2008? What happened to the immunity of JNUSU from the office of Vice Chancellor?
    • Why it is that the stamping of the Vice Chancellor is accepted all the 40 years of JNU tradition with the Election Commissioner getting certificate from the JNU Vice Chancellor?
    • If the VC does not mean anything to the JNUSU, why the same VC denied them a seat in any of their official meeting in the post November 2008 scenario? Why they denied copy of any official proceeding? If the JNUSU can’t seat in the any of the meeting of JNU administration, what is its use and who care its existence? What happen to the student mandate in the UGBM?
    • If the UGBM is so valid & so strong why JNUSU is not allowed a space in JNU administration?
    • AISA is shameless – all YFE counselors have resigned from their post and the submission is made to the Supreme Court of India on 2 January 2009 and the wording of the submission said: “We believe in the law of the land and we honor the Supreme Court order. When we realized the fact that the 2007 JNUSU was illegal, all the student representatives of Youth For Equality elected during the 2007 student union elections resigned without any delay. (Resignation letter is attached)”.
    • It is not the YFE but the same above certification authority namely Vice Chancellor who said that JNUSU is illegal replying to an RTI and it is only YFE which is daring to tell the truth!

AISA is only degrading the student mandate in the UGBM. They cannot restore the prestige of the students they have lost for their greed to remained glued to the chair.

YFE never started the student assistance process during admission, neither it is desperate to do it! YFE never paranoid newcomers with threat, neither YFE accommodate the freshers in exchange of vote! Rather YFE advocates one widow admission system done by the administration! Is not it possible to assistant the student without a political tag if there is a need to assist? It is well established that who stones YFE member Sumeet Kishore to grab a newcomer in 2007! A known AISA criminal Rajan Pandey’s near fatal attack to Sumeet Kishore in 2007 and his subsequent rustication from JNU is a proof how AISA run admission assistance!

If there is a competition on shamelessness and betrayal nobody beats AISA! The AISA knows better than anyone else who started the meritocracy movement way back in 1990? If the memory of AISA does not falter they must recall the fact that it was AISA with NO MANDAL NO COMMANDAL slogan! What happened to them now? One thing is clear – when you spit towards the sun, it will drop on your face only! But opium protect you from shamelessness!

AISA people are imbecile. It was known to all, even the illiterates, that Adl. Solicitor General Gopal Subramaniam complains to the Supreme Court about the non-implementation of the Lyngdoh in JNU and YFE had no role in it! AISA lawyer told to the Supreme Court that all JNU community disagree with Lyngdoh recommendation and it was at this time YFE lawyer stood up and said YFE is agreeing with Lyngdoh! Who authorized the AISA lawyer to speak on behalf of YFE?

Betrayal??? The students memorized history! They all aware of the communist betrayal during the Quit India Movement and during China War! Who are habitual betrayers? Even the communists spell their own name without hesitation!


It is disgusting that few power hungry communists equating themselves with Bhagat Singh, Azad, Asfaq who embraced death but never accepted any compromise or position, with Dushyant who embraced humiliation but refused any literary awards or material comforts, with JP who prefer jail to any ministerial birth!

AISA talks a lot about YFE money! But where does its own funding comes for the year long pamphlets, for huge hoardings, for funding election and for opium??? AISA arrested the helpless Registrar for eight hours – was it not a rude display of muscle power? AISA attacked Sumeet Kishor and send him to cranial injury – was not that a bizarre display of muscle power? Much has been talked about UGBM. YFE believes that to extend an electoral mandate the appeal of the UGBM is limited. Unlike the election, majority of students never participate in UGBM and hence it has no authority to extend electoral mandate! What about UGBM? What is the voting procedure of UGBM?

    • Is it open? Is it secret? Is it through secret ballot paper? Is it through EVM? At what time the UGBM voting takes place? And what is the percentage of participation of JNU student, in the name of whom they are ruling, at the voting?
    • AISA people must be under the influence of OPIUM! Always!

Lyngdoh never restrict JNU tradition, debate, discussion or anything! It only restricts the inroads of nasty political parties into the campus! Lyngdoh is an obituary message to the stooges of political parties. Student knows that better!

Pamphlet 28 July 2009, YFE JNU

As the admission of new entrants is going on, voices of politically backed student organizations of JNU campus is getting shriller. Claims and counterclaims are selling like hot cake. Few students trying their best to portray themselves as the JNUSU of this campus! The illegal claim of JNUSU has even been punctured by the JNU administration by denying them a seat in any official meeting and also denying them the copy of any official meeting. But not ashamed of this kind of treatment by the JNU administration, the illegal self proclaimed office bearer JNUSU ballooning their claim as JNUSU with pamphlets and with sticker in their chest and running from newcomer to newcomer trying to convince them that they are the ILLEGAL JNUSU of this campus. Even before a newcomer enter to this campus he or she may taste the bitter test of nasty politics inside the campus.

The latest stunt of the illegal JNUSU was trying to score point by targeting the security apparatus of the university. Even a newborn baby knows the fact that the JNU security is not here to harass any student or student body but only to follow the instruction of the university. If they are so confident of their official post why they are not storming the official meetings of JNU, from where they have been discarded unceremoniously? But the reaction as well as reflection of other student bodies inside the campus on the issue of the status of the illegal JNUSU is like that of ‘don’t ask don’t say’. But this stand is for public consumption and privately all of them must be cursing themselves for supporting privately an illegal JNUSU! When Lyngdoh was being debated inside the campus whether to be implemented or not everybody boasting the long standing tradition of JNU election!

      • Now what happened to that long standing tradition?
      • Is that long standing tradition of JNU election is still protected?
      • Is it true that all the students of JNU are happy with the illegal and forced occupation of JNUSU by AISA?
      • Who give them the mandate to push the JNUSU election into an uncertain future?
      • Neither the Supreme Court of India nor the Government of India is desperate to conduct the JNUSU election! Also the JNU administration is very happy with the absence of a JNUSU! Who is ultimately suffering for not abiding by the Lyngdoh Committee Recommendations?
      • It is only YFE which is proudly supporting Lyngdoh Committee Recommendation and it was YFE lawyer, who saved JNU from an indefinite stay on election. Who is responsible for not conducting election and making the Supreme Court stay a permanent order?

But few questions are very interesting as everybody know its answer but nobody like to answer it in public! It is like the old traditional Hindu wife, who knows her husband’s name better than anybody else but never names him in public for reason unknown to even her!

      • What is the stand of SFI, ABVP and NSUI on the legality of JNUSU?
      • SFI, ABVP and NSUI want JNUSU election but when and how?
      • Why SFI, ABVP and NSUI want JNUSU election if they don’t have any opposition to the present illegal JNUSU?
      • Doesn’t the JNU student understand hypocrisy and the fact that SFI, ABVP and NSUI have accepted Lyngdoh Committee Recommendation in Delhi University and in all over India but in JNU?
      • When is the next hearing on JNUSU election at the Supreme Court? AISA is rumoring the fact that they are told by their lawyer that the next hearing is on 16th of August 2009! This is a white lie as this date is a Sunday!

Nothing much can be done in this regard! YFE lawyer has already approached the Supreme Court and requested that YFE is ready to contest the election with Lyngdoh Recommendation and election in JNU be allowed to which the Supreme Court have no objection. But the JNU administration, which is the nodal body to conduct the elections, is facing contempt of court for not adopting Lyngdoh in the year 2006 and 2007 JNUSU election and hence is paralyzed to conduct any election! It is a catch 22 situation and only adhering to Lyngdoh can save JNU’s long tradition of student union election!

Pamphlet 24 July 2009, YFE JNU

No matter what ever coming into their way – shamelessness, defame, dishonour and even eviction from the premise of JNU, the illegal JNUSU never stopped claiming that they are the elected student body. The administration way back in 2008 admitted that the University never certifies the JNUSU elected in the year 2007. We are now in 2009 and still they are claiming that they are the elected student leaders and hold the office of JNUSU! There shamelessness has now crossed all limits as they are categorically told by the administration that JNU do not recognize the presence of JNUSU and they cannot open a counter for admission assistance!

The three frauds who claims themselves that they are the office bearer of JNUSU teaching the JNU student JNU culture! What is JNU Culture?

    • Occupying the JNUSU illegally and not respecting the student aspiration is JNU culture?
    • For how long the JNUSU function? Forcefully in true communist style capturing the office of JNUSU that is what the JNU culture?
    • Catching newcomers at the gate itself forcefully and instilling them fear and paranoia during the admission is what called JNU culture?
    • Why they wanted to teach JNU culture to the security officer, who was only following the order of the JNU administration? Isn’t the Vice-Chancellor, who head the JNU administration, does not know what JNU culture is?
    • For how long they will hold the JNUSU post and teach JNU culture to the students including the newcomers?
    • Occupying the JNUSU office for an indefinite period, is this what JNU culture?

Youth For Equality wanted to know, if there is any financial aid to the illegal JNUSU? We warn the administration not to hobnob with the illegal JNUSU, which is claiming legality day in and day out otherwise we have to seek the intervention of the Supreme Court to tell them that the administration must face the music for sheltering the illegal JNUSU.

We believe that the JNU administration is providing the illegal JNUSU the platform to function. This is unacceptable to the student community of this campus. It is the blunder of the JNU administration and the Communist student body, which never allowed the election inside the campus for the first time in its history! It is also clear that without following Lyngdoh Commission Recommendation, election into the JNUSU is not possible. No one is getting affected by the delay in JNUSU election but the students of this university.

The claim of the illegal JNUSU is strange! They are writing pamphlets that it was due to their efforts only that the admissions of the new students are possible! What a joke! Is it possible on the part of the administration to refuse a student who has got admission if there is no assistance from the illegal JNUSU? And what is the role of JNUSU, even if illegal? Instead of making the policy more transparent and easier, these stupid students are making the admission time as one occasion to recruit new students to their party fold! Why can’t there be single window system? Why assistance is required from professional political student bodies to take admission in JNU?

Now one after another student bodies including ABVP and SFI wanted JNUSU election! But the question arises here is – who stopped the student election? ABVP now succumbed to the Lyngdoh Pressure and ready to follow the recommendation of Lyngdoh Committee for student union election! SFI is suffocating under the breathlessness of allowing its friendly rival AISA to illegally occupy JNUSU office for an indefinite period! They forgot the contribution of Youth For Equality at the Supreme Court when the lawyer of YFE restrained the Supreme Court from ordering a blanket stay on the election. It was due to the YFE the stay was conditional and the condition was ‘if the university follows Lyngdoh Recommendation’ the Supreme Court has no objection for the JNUSU election.

The stupidity of these student bodies that are refusing to follow Lyngdoh recommendation for their personal benefit, is actually the biggest hindrance for JNUSU election. The presence of illegal JNUSU inside the campus is unacceptable to the JNU students and the administration must end the illegality.

Pamphlet 16 July 2009, YFE JNU

JNU students know when the last JNU Student Union Election was held. They also know that presently there is no JNUSU functioning. The JNU students very much aware of the fact that the 2007 student union election without, which never followed the Lyngdoh Recommendation was illegal and this was admitted by the JNU administration without any doubt. But still few people are claiming themselves as the reigning JNUSU as if ‘maan na maan main tera Shahrukh Khan’.

Friends, the communists are now confused what to do in the campus and spreading rumor regarding the implementation of OBC reservation. In the landmark judgment of “Youth for Equality vs. Union of India” delivered on 10 April 2008 the Supreme Court ordered that “The Government need not always provide the maximum limit. Reasonable cut off marks should be set so that standards of excellence greatly effect. The unfilled seats should revert to the general category.” Justice Pasayat and Thackker in the same judgment said “If any seats remain vacant after adopting such norms they shall be filled up by candidates from general categories.”

The Central Government did not follow the order in 2008 admission session and again Youth For Equality reached to the Supreme Court. Judgment pronounced by Justices K.G. Balakrishnan, Arijit Pasayat, C.K. Thakkar, R.V. Ravendran and Dalveer Bhandari of the Supreme Court of India on the plea of Youth For Equality on 15th September 08 was as follows:

1) “What is the confusion? It was clarified in the judgment itself that the seats remaining vacant after the implementation of 27% OBC quota in Central Educational Institutions, including IITs and IIMs will go to the General Category. The wasting of seats cannot be allowed. It will go back to the general category. The reservation was not for ensuring that even if they (OBC) are not there, it will not go to others. It is very clear. The intention was that don’t leave the seat vacant. The intention was to give better education.”

2) "If the cut-off for general category is 50% marks in the entrance examination, you cannot admit OBC candidates who have secured just 25% marks. You cannot dilute merit altogether. That is why three of the five judges on the constitution bench had favoured a cut-off for OBC candidates — either 5% (two judges) or 10% (one judge) less than that of general candidates."

3) “The Centre, which appeared to be in a hurry to fill all the OBC seats, could not dilute merit by reducing the cut-off marks for backward class students much lower than that prescribed for the general category.”

4) “The concept of carrying forward to the next academic year the quota seats which remained unfilled is not allowed. If any seats remain vacant after adopting such norms, they shall be filled up by candidates from general categories."

Over 6,000 OBC seats in undergraduate courses in Delhi University will go to general category students this year due to absence of candidates in the reserved category. The Delhi University has 10,183 seats for OBC students. However, the varsity unable to fill these seats due to less number of applications from the OBC students. The DU administration said that “Several seats of our various colleges are still vacant. These seats will be converted into general category seats after 14 August as per the university’s earlier decision. At least two third of the total OBC seats are expected to be converted into the general seats, thus providing greater opportunity for candidates other than OBC categories”.

The JNU cannot have a different policy of its own and vacant OBC seats must go to the General Category students otherwise it may attract contempt of the Supreme Court.

Letter to the VC







DELHI – 110067

Dear Sir,

We the representatives of Youth For Equality like to inform you
that we are in favor of JNUSU election as per Lyngdoh Committee
Recommendations and honor the Hon’able Supreme Court’s
Order dated 24.10.08.

Sir, we believe that the campus student activities must remain
untouched from the nasty political interference and planting of
stooge student body by various political parties. Though the present
system of JNU election is a role model for other institutions, still
there is lots of room for improvement. The Hon’ble Supreme
Court has precisely directed improvement in JNU election by guiding
us how to improve our unique election model and how to keep us safe
from corrupt and disruptive political onslaught from outside the

Sir, Youth For Equality share the anxiety of the common student
of JNU as the future of the academic year is now uncertain
considering the disruptive missionary zeal of various student bodies
backed by the support of their parents political parties. There is a
pressing need to end this uncertainty. The administration must ensure
sound academic environment in our campus. We don’t want to
prolong this uncertainty and as the court has fixed the
responsibility of implementation of Lyngdoh Committee Recommendation
to conduct JNU election on the JNU administration, there shall not be
any dilution or disregard of the court order on the part of JNU

Finally we like to inform you with a heavy heart that the JNUSU’s
lawyer was lying and portraying wrong picture of JNUSU election 2008
as has been evident from what he said at the Supreme Court that ‘if
Lyngdoh Recommendation will be applied in JNU all candidates will be
disqualified’. This is not true and unacceptable to YFE. It is
during this time learned counsel Mr. M.L. Lahoty interfered in the
court room and told the truth on behalf of YFE. Sir, two of our
central panel candidates may face axe if Lyngdoh recommendations
applied but we are ready to pay any price for the betterment of the

With this we would like to inform you that since we become a
party to this case, no one is allowed to misinterpret truth on our
behalf and we request the JNU administration to follow the guidelines
as per the court order. Deviation from any of the legally established
truth, fact and direction may force us to seek the court’s
intervention to correct any malaise inside the campus.

Sincerely yours,

  1. Vikram Singh, (Presidential Candidate 08)

  2. Brundaban Mishra, (Vice Presidential Candidate 08)

YFE Pamphlet 24.10.2008



Kumharin (Amrita Rao)
: Mausi (Aunty), how did you realized that
your daughter was maha-amangli


Kushwaha (Shreyas Talpade):
Yes Mausi, how did you know?

(Ila Arun):
Son, when my daughter was born, as many as three
buffalo dies in the village! Not only

this when
she was eight year old, her grand father was dead! That is how we

delivered by the protagonists of Shyam Benegal made superstition
satire “Welcome to


similar situation appeared in the mind of few anxious politically
motivated student bodies of JNU who are alleging Youth For Equality
saying that YFE is behind the implementation of Lyngdoh committee
recommendation in JNU election. The first thing come into mind is –
is YFE that powerful to implement anything in JNU? Is the JNUSU
admitting the fact that YFE is more powerful than the JNUSU itself??

Let’s talk fact:

all this drama over Lyngdoh Recommendation began?

Court sought an explanation on last Tuesday why Lyngdoh Committee's
recommendations are not being adhered to during the students' body
election. The notice was sent to the JNU administration and JNUSU,
following a petition being filed by Gopal Subramanium.

has filed the petition?
Gopal Subramanium

the hell is this Gopal Subramanium?
Additional Solicitor
General of India, it is one of the politically appointed legal
advisor posts of incumbent government. He is the same person, who was
throughout against Youth For Equality in Supreme Court during YFE’s
fight against OBC reservation.

has appointed Gopal Subramanium?
Congress led UPA government
where all the Communists were part when his appointment was made.

was the stand of JNU Administration?
JNU administration said,
JNU honor the Supreme Court order in letter and spirit. JNU also said
that no one is above the law of the land so JNUSU have to adhere to
the SC order.

happened to the last year JNUSU and Election Commission of JNU which
got elected without following Lyngdoh guidelines?
Both the
bodies never got the ascent of the JNU Vice-Chancellor, fearing
contempt of court order. So the last year JNUSU was an illegal body,
which fooled the student of JNU for whole one year.

was the stand of JNUSU in the Supreme Court?
Despite the court
order no one on behalf of JNUSU appeared.

appeared on behalf of JNUSU?
It is Election Commission of JNU
instead appeared in the Supreme Court and that too by a former Chief
Election Commissioner of JNU, who is no more a student of JNU.

the big question is what was the role of Youth For Equality in this
whole affair?
Nothing! Literally! Youth For Equality was never
a party to this affair, so YFE lack the requisite legality to speak
on behalf of anybody. In any court, no person can speak other than
the parties involved. Youth For Equality never be a party so no
question of taking any stand.

is the fuss about Ad. M.L. Lahoty’s presence at the Supreme
Court on behalf of Youth For Equality?
Ad. M.L. Lahoty is a
Supreme Court lawyer and it is no surprise that he was in Supreme
Court today! Before employing any lawyer, a Vakalatnama is required
to be signed by the client with the Advocate. Has Youth For
Equality signed any such Vakalatnama with Ad. Lahoty?
No, in no
uncertain term! And how come Ad. Lahoty take a stand in favor of
Lyngdoh Committee when two of our own central panel candidates may
face axe without delay if Lyngdoh recommendation followed by JNU?

But the
net question is can JNU student union election procedure overrule the
Supreme Court order? Is JNU above the law of the land? The student
communities of JNU have to respond this question.

is the stand of Youth For Equality?
We believe in the law of the
land and we honor the Supreme Court order. But since the Lyngdoh
Committee itself louded JNU model of election, it must be protected
at any cost.

who must own the responsibility of protecting student interest??
JNUSU of course! But the spineless and shameless illegal JNUSU
never bother to present the proper picture at the Supreme Court and
instead it is behaving as if they are acting in the movie Welcome to

The only
alternative in JNU for JNU student is Youth For Equality.

SC stays JNU student polls

NEW DELHI:: The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the November 3 students' union elections in the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and asked its vice-chancellor why contempt proceedings not be initiated against him for allowing overage and repeat candidates to file nomination papers in breach of its directions.
In fact, the elections may not take place at all this year as the apex court fixed further hearing on the matter for December 8, while asking the university's V-C and registrar to file their responses by then.
But, an important clarification followed, when the Bench was told by counsel M L Lahoty, appearing for Youth for Equality (YFE), that many students were ready to conduct the elections as per the guidelines laid down by the Lyngdoh committee.
The Bench said: "If fresh elections to JNUSU are held in line with the recommendations of the Lyngdoh committee, there shall not be any bar on it."
Right at the beginning of the proceedings, amicus curiae and additional solicitor general Gopal Subramaniam alleged that most of the candidates were either over 28 years old or seeking re-election, both banned by the apex court in its September 22, 2006, directions, which incorporated the Lyngdoh committee's stringent recommendations to stop money and muscle power in polls for students' bodies in colleges and universities.
A Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat and M K Sharma said it would not brook even the slightest breach of the elaborate guidelines issued for college and university students' body elections. "Anyone trying to overreach the orders of the court in any manner would be liable for contempt of court," it said.
"Since JNU Students Union elections are being held contrary to the mandate of the Supreme Court, it is prima facie contempt of court. Issue notice to the vice-chancellor and the registrar of JNU to show cause why action for contempt be not taken against them for violating the SC orders. Meanwhile, the elections for JNUSU shall remain stayed," the court ordered posting the matter for further hearing on December 8.
Appearing for JNUSU, counsel Sanjay Parikh said that the election process adopted for the students body in the prestigious university was unique and had been a role model for others. Here the students body itself conducts the elections without any interference from outside, he said.
Amicus curiae Subramaniam also brought to the court's notice the incident of vandalism at Samant Chandrasekhar College at Puri in Orissa by students when they were told to fall in line with the apex court's 2006 order.
"The overage candidates commanded a mob of students and went on the rampage, set the laboratory on fire and assaulted the teaching staff," he told the Bench, which lost no time in issuing notice to the college principal asking him whether steps have been taken to expel the delinquent students.
It also directed the superintendent of police, Puri, to immediately register criminal cases against the students who indulged in vandalism at the college and take action in accordance with law.

Youth For Equality

Why Youth For Equality is the need of the hour 23.10.08

I came, I saw, I conquered According to Plutarch , the words by which Julius Caesar succinctly described one of his victories. When a normal student enters JNU he/she feel that he/she has conquered a war. Within no time they started feel: I came, I saw and am now frustrated! Why -

The Scene 1: A young, anxious, curious and promising fresher entered into the portals of the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University. After a harried journey and ride to the campus, the winding and gradually undulating roads, the verdant greenery and the impressive Ad Block building are a soothing balm on his/her frayed nerves. One look at the statue of our first PM, standing tall and elegant next to the Ad Block and the entrant cant help but feel proud of his/her stars, to have made it here.

The Scene 2: The admission process begins. The fresher is handed a sheaf of folios and asked to fill them out. “What, all of these”, s/he asks in sheer bewilderment. “These are meant to “facilitate” your admission procedure”. The term facility seems to have a different meaning in JNU; its synonyms could be cumbersome, tedious and unnecessarily taxing. If filling out the zillion documents was not enough, then throw in running from pillar-to-post for hostel allotment, if you were lucky enough to get one at all. As s/he wakes up to these facts of the administration, the now not-so-enthusiastic student is left thinking, “ Is this the JNU of my Dreams?”

E-governance: The Solution to These problems

Lets re-imagine the aforementioned situation, albeit in a novel way.

The student comes to JNU and reaches the ad-block. Instead of having a barrage of paperwork hurled onto him/her, they are greeted by a single-window system of admission; they start with feeding in their registration number into a computer terminal, which tells them their rank within the center, for the course that they have applied for. Candidates who have made it to multiple courses are informed of all their options and asked to choose likewise.

Having made up his/her mind, the student is now asked to fill out a SINGLE prototype of the folio, online. A facsimile of this document is dispatched to all the offices where it is required, also online. Any mistakes in filling out the form will be highlighted by the computer and the candidate will be prompted to rectify them, then and there.

For fee deposition, the candidates will have to carry a DD of the requisite amount with them and simply fill up the draft no. as and when prompted by the computer; no hassle of waiting in long queues for balance. Online bank services will be provided, in case one does not have a draft.

This being done, the page would change to the hostel allotment procedure. Since the details are already with the administration, the hostel availability status, in view of the rank and seniority of the candidate, will be displayed on the screen. The candidates will be told of the dates when the hostel allotment starts and the allotment procedure will be online as well.

As the day ends, the student returns to his/her abode, relaxed and unruffled. As he thinks about the great ease with which he spent his day, so productively, he can’t help but think, “This is the JNU of my dreams”.Youth For Equality is committed to the e-governance and once it win the JNUSU election, the first thing after the scholarship issue will be that of e-governance as described above. Only student support is required to convert this archaic system into a modern one. Lets join hand to make this university modern and student friendly.

YFE Pamphlet 22.10.2008



Youth For Equality
congratulates the scientific community for successfully lunching
the Chandrayaan-I today. It is like we demanded moon and ISRO
delivered it. Carrying over a billion hopes, India's maiden lunar
mission Chandrayaan-I began its historic journey to the moon today
when an indigenously developed rocket placed the spacecraft into
the Transfer Orbit "perfectly". Chandrayaan-I is
carrying an Indian flag which will be placed on the lunar surface
when the Moon Impactor Probe lands on the moon during the course
of the two-year mission.

Why Youth
For Equality is the need of the hour??

“An invasion of
an army can be resisted, not an idea whose time has come” said
Victor Hugo. Youth For Equality is an idea whose time has come. It
has now been proved beyond doubt that the voice of YFE cannot be
suppressed by force, politics, vendetta or any other despicable act.

will never find a place in JNU!!
This is what the communists and
other parties of the campus said in the year 2006. Although the
campus’ progressive communists never believe in astrology still
they had made this astrological calculation during the formation of
Youth For Equality in May 2006. They have employed each and every
technique to stop YFE forcibly from growoing. Organized attack on the
peaceful YFE rally on 19 May 2006 is still fresh in the mind of JNU
students. They tried to defame YFE rally by using their tested false
propaganda. But YFE outsmarted the communists by calling media and
the entire rally was organized the broad light of TV cameras. The
presence of media reduced the chance for any false propaganda. They
never stopped there – filed FIR at police station, complained
at the Rector’s office and spread calumny. But like gold coming
out of fire YFE was shining while dealing with all these allegations
and organized the 33 days biggest ever hunger strike in JNU.

will not survive!!
This is the next set of predictions made by
the same people. Their prediction was based on the fact that since
YFE is not supported financially by any political party and since it
has no rotten/corrupt political patron, YFE will not survive. YFE
proved every calculation wrong and also proved that it does not
required black money, muscle power and corrupt political practice to
run a student movement. Self motivated student across the country
comes under the umbrella of YFE and proved what their motivated
action can do. Against the strong political will of the entire
parliament, Youth For Equality halted the OBC reservation for two
long years from getting implemented. This was first of its kind in
India. 54% seat increase was the formula offered by the political
class to convince YFE. YFE accepted the increase formula as it was a
long awaited decision but never accepted the faulty reservation
policy. When the final judgment pronounced the political class again
got a series of shock treatments like: no to creamy layer, vacant OBC
seats must go to general category and finally PG completed students
are no more eligible for reservation (PG case is still in the Supreme
Court). Youth For Equality flourished again.

says more than words and rhetoric. The vote share for all the Central
Panel posts in the year 2006 was: AISA 24.3%, SFI 22.8%, YFE
21.04%; in the year 2007 it was AISA 28.4%, YFE 23.29%, SFI

Reservation toh implement ho gaya ab YFE kya karegi: “
said the Queen in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland,
“I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before
breakfast.” Reservation was not the issue which brought us into
the street; it was there before as well. And those who were on the
street are all doctors, engineers and Management professional who
never fought for their own welfare. Then what were the reasons? A
variety of reasons were there. Prominent were dividing the society on
caste basis, reservation to the powerful caste in exchange of vote,
killing the most reputed institutions of India in the name of
reservation (as they have done it to Allahabad University/Calcutta
University to mention a few), appeasing the already powerful people
(creamy layer) and following a failed reservation policy were the
reasons behind the agitation.

Not a
single seat in AIIMS/IITs/IIMs was ever increased in independent
India. It was after YFE’s agitation a massive 54% seat increase
undertaken. The eleventh five year plan got a massive 20% increase on
education and the ruling establishment forced to create 16 more
Central Universities to the already existed 20. The National
Knowledge Commission suggested 1500 vocational college and 300
universities. These measures were impossible in the pre-YFE era like
of Queen in Lewis Caroll’s believe in Alice in Wonderland.

of YFE forced the other student bodies to talk about JNU:
the emergence of YFE, politically backed student bodies were fighting
the JNUSU election on issues far from JNU. Now there is talk of
campus related issues. YFE raised the scholarship issues for all.
When the discrimination taken place in the disbursal of scholarship

general category students, it is YFE which raised voice and demanded
equalization. YFE’s all 8 councilors signed and present the
case at the UGC for equal scholarship to general category student.
AISA never thought it good to include in the proposal neither at the
JNU Court nor at UGC. SFI another silent spectator of this drama
never bother to visit UGC to press the demand. It is only YFE which
raise the issue every now and then and filed a series of RTI both at
JNU and at UGC to reach to the genesis of the discrimination.

would like to ask the AISA and its predecessor SFI – when the
need, study requirement, livelihood and all other parameters are the
same for general category student and Rajiv Gandhi Fellowship holders
why there is a huge discrimination? Why general category students
should remain satisfied with Rs.3000/5000 when the Rajiv Gandhi
Fellowship holder get Rs.12,000/14,000 every month? YFE has already
demonstrated through a series of action how it can change the course
of history. Through our missionary zeal we forced the CSIR to
increase the number of scholarship and also to increase the amount
from Rs.8000 to Rs.12000. YFE through raised the issue of full
fledged bank facilities with draft facility and agitated/negotiated
with the senior SBI official. Now it is a reality.

Now other student organization not seeking vote on the issue of Iraq,
America, Russia, China, Palestine, Israel or on any other exotic
issues but on campus related issues.

Contrary to the welfare of the student AISA indulged in self
promotion. They use JNU as a stage for national politics. AISA led
JNUSU’s own expenditure sheet told us how they have used 40% of
student money in their party’s pamphleteering! Their only
weapon is rumor machine, which always work overtime to propagate
false achievement and accuse other of not doing anything. But the big
question is how long AISA can fool its own supporter and JNU student?

kaun Hara Sakta hai, hum to AISA hai:
AISA has been claiming this
since long and their claim is based on the innocence and suffering of
new students. First they allow them to suffer from scarcity of
hostel, then their indoctrination style includes paranoia to new
entrants and finally they take caste issues to come into power! This
is how AISA play in JNU.

now the time has come to expose the antipathy of left organization to
the student aspiration. The time is to elect a sensitive and student
centric student body. Only Youth For Equality has proven humility to
take the place of JNUSU.

Anti-Left forum comes up ahead of JNUSU polls


22 Oct 2008, 1224 hrs IST, PTI

NEW DELHI: Ahead of JNU students' union elections, a section of students in the campus have formed a platform to prevent the Left organisations from coming to power this year.

Led by an Iranian student, Farbode Vasighi, the newly formed 'Anti Communist League' is an effort to take all the forces together to prove that JNU is not limited to Left's ideology alone.

“Anti-Left forces are not less than pro-Left forces in JNU. Then why JNU is called Left's bastion. It has a national character,” said Farbode, a student of Persian Centre.

“Our aim is to destroy dominance of Left in JNU and create equal opportunities for all,” he added.

These students blame Left organisations for hijacking the whole administration of the campus.

“According to the constitution of JNUSU, the elections should have been over by October 21 this year. But, these Left groups purposefully conduct elections in festive season of Diwali and 'Chhath', due to which our supporters go home and we get less votes in the elections," said Amit Srivastava, a PhD student and co-convener of the forum.

Accusing the administration of targeting non-left students, he said, "Teachers in JNU have been a cadre of Left. You can be targeted in any way here."

To mobilise students, the conveners of the league have launched a campaign through SMSes, e-mails, orkut and facebook.

YFE Pamphlet 21.10.2008



Why Youth For Equality is the need of the hour??

One communist student body (SFI) was taken over by another set of radicals but more inefficient communist student body (AISA) during the 2007 JNUSU election. The tall claim of AISA had fallen flat when the year 2007-08 ended without a single achievement to name! AISA’s style of functioning does not include the welfare of student or welfare of campus! That’s why they remained a mute spectator to the end number of discriminatory treatment meted out to various sections of JNU student in matter ranging from hostel allotment to scholarship issue. The outgoing JNUSU never raised the issue of placement cell in JNU and cannot think of e-governance. All the infrastructure including adequate no of computers meant for the e-governance programme gathering dust in JNU but AISA have no time to modernize the campus and least interested to make the university more student friendly. JNU follows archaic system of admission, registration and its policies are more painful for those who intended to submit Dissertation and Thesis. AISA want to make it more complicated and prefer to stay in the Stone

If we forget for a moment about the campus activities – the most popular theme of AISA was Singoor. Contrary to their claim, the farmers and families who were earning their bread and butter from TATA Plant in Singoor are now committing suicide after the departure of TATA. AISA must be very much satisfied seeing the population of Singoor starving after the departure of TATA! Due to heavy construction activities in JNU the number of workers actually increased over the one year but AISA stopped persuading their cause! Probably it is no more productive politically for AISA! There is no end of their failures!

YFE to check the champion of competitive reservation politics!

Another party ABVP (champion of caste based OBC reservation) with all its loud words for nationalism and national unity actually work overtime to divide the society on caste basis. Twice its parent party BJP had bent the Indian Constitution to accommodate its vote greed interest
by promoting sectarian interest. First the BJP bent the constitution in the year 2000 with

This was meant to overrule the Supreme Court order on the rule against the carry forward policy! Look at this how BJP’s Vasundhara Raje made the proposal: “The Supreme Court of India in its judgment in the Indra Sawhney versus Union of India held that the number of vacancies to be filled up on the basis of reservations in a year including carried forward reservations should in no case exceed the limit of fifty per cent. The Government,
after considering various representations, reviewed the position and has decided to make amendment in the constitution so that the unfilled vacancies of a year, which are reserved for being filled up in that year in accordance with any provision for reservation made under clause (4) or clause (4A) of article 16 of the Constitution, shall be considered as a separate class of vacancies to be filled up in any succeeding year or years and such class of vacancies shall not be considered together with the vacancies of the year in which they are being filled up for determining the ceiling of fifty percent.”

BJP’s scheme of promoting caste does not end here and in the year 2002 brought another amendment. This time extending reservation in promotion! Scandalous one can say and while doing so the BJP actually killed the efficiency factor at work place in one stroke. Now onwords promotion no more on the basis of performance but caste. THE CONSTITUTION (EIGHTY-FIFTH AMENDMENT) ACT, 2001[4th January, 2002], brought by the BJP government made provision for reservation in promotion, that means promoting the already empowered! The amendment says: “Amendment of article 16.

In article 16 of the Constitution, in clause (4A), for the words "in matters of promotion to any class", the words "in matters of promotion, with consequential seniority, to any class" shall be substituted.” Now the time has come to realize the folly. Let’s choose our leader with reason and result oriented analysis. Lets make no mistake in choosing Youth For Equality.

YFE Pamphlet 20.10.2008


Why Youth
For Equality is the need of the hour??

politics over reservation in India is rampant without rest. All the
parties trying to woo one or other caste group. Political parties are
holding caste panchayat and offering irrational booty in return of
vote. While addressing a convention
of upper castes in UP, Mayawati said, "The reservation on the
basis of
and other parameters will enable the upper caste community members to
address their problems, especially those related to poverty and
unemployment." This is another way of alluring some more caste
groups and hence continues with the caste legacy. If the state nurse
education and economy properly no reservation is needed for any
section or community of India. Youth For Equality is all for over all
improvement of all the community not on the basis of caste but on the
basis of real disadvantage and poverty. Identification of the people
who left behind in the process of development must be done on
individual basis and accordingly the issue of backwardness must be

need of YFE is very relevant to achieve certain most striking goals
of JNU student.

  1. YFE will meet the demand that the UGC Fellowship for
    M.Phil./Ph.D. (Rs.3,000/5,000 since April 2007) students should be
    equalized with that of the Rajeev Gandhi Fellowship (Rs.
    12,000/14,000 since July 2005).

  2. If YFE’s agitation can resulted in the increase
    of CSIR seats and increase in CSIR Fellowships (Rs.12,000 & Rs.
    14,000 respectively for JRF and SRF from Rs.8,000 & Rs.10,000),
    JNUSU’s agitation can ensure many such achievements.

  3. YFE never collected money from the campus for Bihar
    Relief Work. Rather we seek volunteer for relief work in Bihar. Even
    now YFE volunteers are working in Saharsa, Bihar. The contact nos
    for help line are Mumbai +91 - 9324334359, 9821871945, New Delhi-
    +91 – 9811382902,9868340420, Patna - +91 – 9308022326,
    9234616135. More can be found at
    Now the question is what happens to the money collected by outgoing
    JNUSU from JNU community?? Every time there is a national calamity
    the left parties indulge in collection of money and make profit out
    of national calamity. Last year’s community kitchen scandal is
    still fresh. Lots of money collected from the student, faculty and
    staff but no account is available.

  4. YFE will ensure that reservations should not be on the
    basis of caste, but should be based on the real backwardness and
    economic background.

  5. YFE will ensure in no uncertain term that in the campus
    must be the first 'e-governance' zone in India.

  6. YFE will ensure that DSW should notify the list of all
    hostels just before the commencement of academic session clearly
    stating the no of rooms available for fresh allotment for the
    newcomers and also the shortfall the university have to bear. This
    is especially important as every hostel asked the old student to
    vacate the room on 15th May every year. Why periodic list and why

  7. As per the JNUSU constitution article-13(ii), no. of
    council seats from different Schools/Centres should be like

    20-60 1

    61-100 2
    101-200 3

    201-300 4

    301 and above 5

As per the constitution the JNUSU must ensure the
increase of one council seat in SBT, SPS and SAA as their strength is
more than 60 from past many years. Also, one separate council seat
should be allotted for SCMM, which has been included with BIC till
now, since both centers have more than 30 students. YFE will ensure
all this.

With these ideals and many more YFE is again contesting the 2008
JNUSU election. We believe that during the last many years precious
little has been done for the University and hence JNU is not figured
in the best 400 universities of the world. YFE is committed for the
excellence of JNU with the support of student community.
