YFE Pamphlet 22.10.2008

YOUTH FOR EQUALITY

22.10.08







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.





YFE
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.





YFE
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.


Statistics
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
22.17%!

OBC
Reservation toh implement ho gaya ab YFE kya karegi: “
Sometimes,”
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.











Presence
of YFE forced the other student bodies to talk about JNU:
Before
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
to


the
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.


YFE
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?





Hame
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.


Friends,
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.
