SFI Dissolves JNU Unit


ON July 10, 2012, Delhi state committee of the Students’ Federation of India decided to dissolve its unit in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and expel four state committee members for indulging in anti-organisational activities and violating the rules under the constitution of SFI. It will be noted that the JNU unit of the SFI had called a general body meeting (GBM) on July 5, which had passed a resolution taking a decision on an issue that is outside the purview of a unit committee and had thus grossly violated the constitution of the SFI.


The Rule 4(a) of the SFI constitution states that “The unit committee will have the absolute right to take decisions concerning issues at the institution level or its defined area of work, provided such decisions do not have implications which go beyond the confines of the institution or the unit’s area of work.”


Also, the Rule 4(f) states that “The CEC will have the absolute right to take decisions on all issues of national and international concern.” 


The SFI’s Delhi state committee has informed that it has expelled Roshan Kishore, P K Anand, Zico Dasgupta and V Lenin Kumar from the primary membership of the SFI for violating the organisation’s norms and forms as well as for actively pursuing an anti-organisation agenda.
