SFI Release Dated 17 September 2012

SFI congratulates and thanks the Election Committee for the smooth conduct of the JNUSU Elections 2012-13. The EC members had taken up the tough task of organising the JNUSU Elections in a short span of time, and put in their best efforts to ensure the same in the face of many odds. We would also like to extend our greetings and thanks to the student community for having participated in this massive democratic exercise in large numbers.

SFI condemns the undemocratic, lumpen behaviour indulged in by ABVP activists during various stages of the election process. Although the RSS-sponsored ABVP unit in the campus had been lying low for many years in the recent past, we believe that the fight against this outfit is far from over. This fight will continue in the days to come until the Sangh presence here is rooted out in terms of politics and praxis.

We hope that the JNUSU will remain a progressive instrument of struggle for students’ rights and larger societal issues, and that it will adopt a non-sectarian approach in championing those concerns. SFI commits itself to stand with the JNUSU in all such struggles.
