YFE Pamphlet 18.10.2008



It is now become a habit
of the campus communist that they never stop on an issue they
themselves raise and deflect the attention of the student, read
voter, to other issues every now and then without delay. The risk of
exposure of their inefficiency is always there if they address the
self imposed question. What is/are the achievement/achievements of
the outgoing JNUSU during the last one year?? Have they ever
addressed the inequality of scholarships in between the general
category students and backward category students?? Have they ever got
success in addressing the hostel crises issues?? Do they know that
even 2nd ranker general category students of various
centres are still to get hostel and do they bother to address this
issue?? What happened to the placement cell??

borrowing/stealing stanza from YFE’s writing ‘deep
slumber’! AISA, an organization born with the slogan of NO
MANDAL, NO KAMANDAL is now adopting the both Mandal and Kamandal!
Despite the rhetoric of AISA, OBC reservation is the most contentious
and failed policy in JNU. AISA’s deep slumber can be judged
from the fact that there is a reduction of OBC candidates in JNU
after the implementation of OBC reservation.

Lets see AISA, the self
proclaimed master of poor people at large, is behaving on OBC
reservation! The government raised the income cap of creamy layer to
4.5 lakh per annum. That means the person who is earning Rs.37,000
per month is now eligible for OBC quota. Under this circumstance YFE
wonder if the poor people, about whom AISA makes huge hue and cry,
can avail the OBC reservation benefit! YFE also wonder if AISA’s
scheme of thinking allows their conscience to term a person with
Rs.37,000 income per month as backward and eligible for OBC quota??
This is especially important when the average
income of a person in India is still less than Rs 2,500 a month.
However, after adjusting for inflation, per capita income in real
terms (at 1999-2000 prices) comes at Rs 1,873.58 monthly. Number of
people, in India, who are below poverty line is about 300 million or
30 Crore. Indirectly these sections of people are not entitled to
get any benefit of reservation! The minimum wages in India, vary from
state to state and city to city, and average Rs. 1000 - 1250/month or
Rs. 12,000 - 15,000/yr. Now these lots of AAM ADMI have to compete
with persons whose income is Rs. 37,500 per month for reservation.


It is surprising to find
that modern days Marxists are fighting for caste! This was not the
intension of even Marx himself. He was against class and the entire
communism philosophy is based on the concept of class. But remaining
active in the business of vote bank politics the communists can do
anything, lest they can shun class and adopt caste!

Our homegrown communists
and social justicewalas can learn something from the US Democratic
Presidential candidates Barak Obama. ‘Obama opposes
slavery reparations, apology’ reported
Christopher Wills in the Associated Press on 02.08.08. He
further reported that ‘Democratic presidential candidate Barack
Obama opposes offering reparations to the descendants of slaves,
putting him at odds with some black groups and leaders. The man with
a serious chance to become the nation's first black president argues
that government should instead combat the legacy of slavery by
improving schools, health care and the economy for all.’ The
Illinois Senator himself said: "I have said in the past —
and I'll repeat again — that the best reparations we can
provide are good schools in the inner city and jobs for people who
are unemployed
". If anyone suspecting this act as a vote
getting technique, he/she can comprehensively be wrong for the simple
reason that this is not a position Obama adopted just for the
presidential campaign. He voiced the same concerns about reparations
during his successful run for the Senate in 2004.

This is the most
suitable model of improving society and Youth For Equality believes
in the ideals of Senator Obama at best.

JNU is where it was
prior to the election of 2007 even more backward than the year 2007.
AISA has perfected the art of opposing valuable dignitaries’
visit to the campus. They have opposed the visit of Prime Minister
and President and now they are opposing foreign dignitaries. There
contempt for the common students is vivid. AISA is not interested in
the welfare and academic excellence of students interested in the
subject of International Relations. A new set of leadership is the
need of the hour in JNU. With the turning of time Youth For Equality
is now better prepared to lead the University and will herald the
change students are waiting since years.
