Now a Self Financing Engineering College by Communist Party

Join Facebook Page of Scaling New Heights Blog:
Starting from the academic year 1992 till today, especially when Congress led United Democratic Front (UDF) was ruling Kerala, how many working days were lost in schools and colleges across Kerala due to strikes by SFI, student wing of CPI(M), in protest against starting self financing engineering colleges in Kerala? During my engineering days there was even a relay hunger strike by SFI that lasted more than a month against the new self financing engineering colleges. Hundreds of government cars, buses were damaged by the striking SFI comrades bringing huge loss to the state exchequer. Few youngsters lost life in SFI’s so called struggle against these self financing colleges. 
Now can you believe, the same Communist Party and SFI, is starting a self financing college - M Dasan Institute of Technology - in Kozhikode (Calicut)? What an irony! See this news (in Malayalam).
Is this news shocking? If you know the past history of Communist Party that has a record of committing “historical blunders” only to be corrected later, you won’t be shocked at all. The party that was not ready to accept initially that India got independence from British on August 15th, 1947, party that supported China during the Indo-Chinese war in early sixties, the party that opposed the introduction of computers in early eighties (now all party leaders uses the latest electronics gadgets) this is what we can expect from them. At least now let their leaders admit that opposing self financing colleges was another “historic blunder” of communist party and make a vow that from now onwards party will stop making any more historic blunders. 
I know lot of my friends who took part in SFI agitation against self financing colleges will be reading this post. Like to know their views now that Communist party itself has decided to start an engineering college in self financing sector.

The so called communists have hindered the development of Kerala and are to be isolated from the society. On the other hand the Congress lead UDF comprises of all communal parties like IUML and Kerala congress, they are just political businessmen who are looking for the their own personal interest and their community to some extent. Hence the people of Kerala are stranded between devil and deep sea. Had the public not been educated, thanks to the sacrifices of great community leaders and dedication of political leaders of 60s and 70s. It is time to begin a new era in the politics of Kerala, to weed out the vested interests.

For some time in the past, I had a feeling that some of these political parties stood by their values and ideals, but the increasing number of facts / stories coming up in the media against such a notion has only lead to shattering of all those feelings. The looser I believe is the common man.
