Pseudo leftists loose in college polls

SFI(Student's Federation of India), the student's wing of the pseudo-leftist revisionist party, CPIM(Communist party of India-Marxist) has been defeated in the Student's union elections of Presidency College, Kolkata, which is one of the most prestigious college in India.
SFI was defeated by an organisation named IC(Indipendent's consolidation) which is fighting for democracy against the tyrannical terror unleashed by SFI backed by their Social Fascist bosses of CPIM who are in power in West Bengal province of which Kolkata is the capital.
However after being defeated SFI is crying foul and is alleging fraud although the college authority who held the elections are supposed to be hand in gloves with the state govt. and the ruling party CPIM, and SFI is a front organisation of that CPIM.

For the last year CPIM has been engaged in grabbing land of poor and marginal peasants and giving those lands to Big Comprador and Imperialist bourgeoisie at a very low price.
This unmasks the pseudo-marxist reactionary nature of CPIM.
Discontent has been high among the people regarding this anti-people measure.

In the following paragraphs a report by a local newspaper about the elections is being cited.

SFI defeated at Presidency election

KOLKATA, Feb. 27: The pro-industrialisation campaign run by Students Federation of India (SFI ) during the run-up to the Presidency College elections at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels apparently went against them.
With the maximum number of seats going in favour of Independent Consolidation (IC) candidates, SFI alleged false votes were cast by external supporters of IC. Mr Koustav Chatterjee, SFI Kolkata district secretary, said: “Our slogans were in favour of industrialisation and we demanded a repoll in the two seats as IC used false voters.”
Out of 73 seats, 38 seats went in favour of IC candidates and 33 seats in favour of SFI candidates and two seats still remain at a tie. Prof. Harendranath Bhattacharya, head of the Geology department at the college, said: “In these two seats, re-polling will take place tomorrow. SFI will also have to prove their allegation against IC before the tribunal.”However, Dibyajyoti Konar of IC said the pro-industrialisation publicity of the SFI had backfired and IC’s victory proved students were against the state government’s land acquisition policy.

Red Flag

Red flag by Jim Connel
This is a famous song written by Jim connel.
It has become the most famous song of the working class after the International.

The people's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their hearts blood dyed its every fold.

Then raise the scarlet standard high. (chorus)
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

Look round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
The sturdy German chants its praise,
In Moscow's vaults its hymns are sung
Chicago swells the surging throng.

It waved above our infant might,
When all ahead seemed dark as night;
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
We must not change its colour now.

It well recalls the triumphs past,
It gives the hope of peace at last;
The banner bright, the symbol plain,
Of human right and human gain.

It suits today the weak and base,
Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place
To cringe before the rich man's frown,
And haul the sacred emblem down.

With heads uncovered swear we all
To bear it onward till we fall;
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
This song shall be our parting hymn.

Political Line of Che

Che Guevara did not believe in the basic leninist principle that -
There can not be any revolution with out a revolutionary theory.

So he can not be considered as a marxist-leninist.
Not only that he even praised the revisionist regime of Kruschev in Soviet Union.

He can at best be considered as an anarchist humanist revolutionary.
Not a Marxist communist.
But it is strange to see that the so called Marxist students(SFI) and youth(DYFI) use Che in their Propaganda efforts.
Do they have any idea about the non-marxist nature of Che or are they an ignorant bunch of revisionists(typical of CPM).

Not only that they even don't subscribe to the anarchist politics of Che and as we all know that CPM strives to sustain the status quo in every manner.

[My post is not intended to insult Che as I was also a great admirer of this man myself.His bravery and humanist attributes can be an example

for every revolutionary.This is just an attempt to shed some light on the political line propagated by Che which is quite unknown to most of his admirers and pseudo-admirers.]
