SFI Barbarism at Jadavpur University Campus

Brawl in JU after SFI loses engineering faculty too WTI students say the SFI brought in CPI(M) hooligans to bash them up, members of teaching and non-teaching staff too lent a hand Express News Service

Kolkata, April 5: The Nandigram issue has apparently decimated the Student’s Federation of India — the students’ wing of the CPI(M) — in the Jadavpur University this year.

Following its loss in the Arts Faculty and Science Faculty elections, the SFI suffered its most humiliating debacle at the engineering faculty elections that was held today. While at the Science Faculty, We The Independent (WTI) bagged all the 4 seats, at the Engineering Faculty, the Democratic Students Forum bagged all the 5 seats.

All three elections were held in the last 10 days. And today’s results finally triggered trouble, with the SFI members allegedly unleashing terror on the campus.

Just when 200-odd representatives of We The Independent (WTI) — the students’ organisation which won the Science Faculty student’s union elections — set out to celebrate their 500-margin victory over the SFI, pandemonium broke: they were allegedly roughed up by their SFI counterparts. The WTI said the SFI had gathered CPI(M) hooligans and hoodlums from outside to beat them up.

Allegations and counter allegations flew thick and fast.

Students from the science faculty heaped accusations on SFI members. “They are absolutely frustrated because we have won all four seats in the 950-student faculty. We won by a margin of 500. Seven of our boys had to be taken to EDF Hospital for treatment of the injuries,” said a WTI member.

The most embarrassing claim made by the students was that some teachers also joined the SFI in bashing up the WTI boys. “Even teachers beat up the students in the Science Club room. We were also beaten up in the non-teaching staff office room. We are submitting a deputation to the Vice-Chancellor demanding the suspension of these teachers,” said Shesadri Mitra, one of the WTI students who also filed an FIR at the Jadavpur police station. The faculty tried to cool down the tense atmosphere.

Prof Swadesh Ranjan Roychowdhury, HoD, Chemistry, said: “We have instructed the students to write down their complaints and demands and submit it to the vice-chairman. There is no use increasing tension by flaring tempers.”

“It is obvious that a certain political party is trying to get back their stronghold after losing in every faculty and hence creating the ruckus... this is a desperate attempt to get back to power,” said another professor on condition of anonymity.

Sougata Roy, the general secretary of the JU Non-teaching staff union, which owes allegiance to CPI(M), however, said: “The WTI members were shouting anti-SFI slogans and suddenly got inside the Science Club and started beating up the SFI students. They also got inside our office and vandalised it. Now they are misrepresenting facts to cover up their follies.” None of the SFI members were available for comment.
