Left students' bodies across borders wish SFI for completing 50 years in India

Students Federation of India (SFI), the student wing of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has been congratulated by the left-affiliated Revolutionary Students' Font and Bangladesh Students' Union on completing 50 years of its existence.

Both the wings expressed their solidarity across borders in the struggle to establish socialism in their respective territories.

In a letter to the SFI, Bangladesh Students’ Union praised the left student body in India for their constant struggle against imperialism, neo-liberalization, casteism, religious extremism.

“Currently, capitalist governments all around the world are curtailing education, as well as other basic welfare facilities, and in the process of turning education into a commodity. Privatization of education is increasing at an alarming rate in South Asia, instead of improving the quality of education. Most notably, during this pandemic, only wealthy students who can afford smart devices are getting an education, resulting in the imprisonment of intellectuals, poets, journalists, activists,” the letter reads.

Bangladesh Students’ Union also criticized the religious polarization done by the PM Modi-led BJP Government in India and Sheikh Hasina-led Government in Bangladesh, hence, praised SFI for its constant democratic struggle against it.

On the other hand, Revolutionary Students Font from Pakistan in their letter said, “We believe that seven decades ago British Imperialism and local capitalist elite dipped a revolution in blood and massacre and divided sub-continent into pieces and only a revolution can demolish these bloody lines and join the people of sub-continent again through a voluntary Socialist Federation. The recent uprising of workers and peasants against the neo-liberal policies of Modi’s saffron regime and the Bourgeoisie in India and the workers and students' resistance against IMF on this side of the Radcliffe line is an indication that a decisive fight is approaching us. Therefore, we must understand this historic moment and intervene in these movements to guide them towards a socialist alternative.”
