SDPI National Delegates Meet in New Delhi on Oct. 18

SDPI gives clarion call to fight for freedom from hunger & fear

Bhopal: The Campus Front of India, a neo-social student’s movement which aims to empower the campuses by developing a new generation of activists, will be formally launched at New Delhi on November 7.

     

According to a Press release issued by Mohammed Yusuff, General Convener National Students Convention, the official launch of Campus Front of India will be held at the “National Students Convention” at the auditorium of India International Centre, New Delhi. Delegates from various states will be present in the convention. The first session will be business session where state and National Committees will be elected. E.M. Abdur Rahiman – Chairman, Popular Front of India, A. Sayeed, General Secretary, Social Democratic Party of India; and Gautam Navlakha - Consulting Editor, Economic and Political Weekly will address students on the occasion.

     

In the afternoon session, there will be a seminar on the theme “Students for Social Change”. Guest speakers for the seminar will be Prof. S.A.R. Geelani of Delhi University; Prof. Tanikha Sarkar of Jawaharlal Nehru University; Prof. Shams-ul-Islam of Delhi University, New Delhi, Prof. P. Koya, the Chief Editor, Thejas Daily, Kerala; and Sandeep Singh, president, JNU Students Union, New Delhi.

     

The release said Campus Front of India will be in the forefront in leading students to take up social issues, strive for the oppressed sections of the society and empower the campuses to mark a new dawn in the history of Students Activism. Campus Front of India was formed as a result of the series of discussions held by student organizations which were active in taking up social issues in various parts of the country, release pointed out.

     

"Students are considered as an important section which can play a crucial role in building the society. Students are the privileged section of the society who has the power of education, vision and knowledge with them which is denied to most of the marginalized sections of the society. Unfortunately we have seen a decline in student activism among students for the last few decades. Students movements once considered one of the most powerful catalyst of any cause have now turned into mere pawns of their political mentors. In this critical juncture Campus Front will strive for the revival of student’s power and motivate students to lead social movements", the release stated.
