SFI, AIDSO join hands for DUSU election to fight ABVP
NEW DELHI: The Delhi State Committee of Students' Federation of India has decided to join hands with All India Democratic Students' Organisation, with an aim to fight against the right wing offensive of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad for the Delhi University Students' Union election.
In a press release, SFI said, "We believe in forging a broader unity of the Left and democratic forces. The radical transformation of University space in DU cannot be accomplished without building the broadest possible unity of all the progressive forces in the campus based on students' rights, which are being attacked by the ruling ABVP-led DUSU in collaboration with the Central government."
The statement further read, "SFI believes Left politics wholly depends on mobilising the masses, and this can happen only by forging broad alliances of progressive political forces in the University. In pursuance of the need for a greater unity, SFI-AIDSO has come together in Delhi University Students' Union Elections to forge an alliance of struggles."
The Left-affiliated party also released the names of its candidates for the various posts available for the students' union.
Congress affiliated National Students' Union of India has also released its panel for DUSU poll 2017.
