what is the difference, as far as JNU is concerned, between DSU and All India Students Federation? Are they really different or its just for the convenience (like 'but the DSU did it and AISF has nothing to do with it')? Do they work in tandem at some issues?
Also, what were the activities of AISF/Kanhaiya in the past couple of years in general?
AISA and DSU are Naxal outfits while AISF/SFI are CPI/CPIM. Over the last few years JNUSU has shifted towards the Naxals from the regular Communists. Intelligence agencies may have been keeping a watch and decided to act now.
Technically, yes that would be correct. But ideology doesnt play a big role. Communists win because they have built up a formidable system of brainwashing people on caste, community and gender lines. The system is very efficient.
AISF/SFI/AISA or DSU have some difference in ideology. The students dont care about this. They vote only to defeat ABVP. So when ABVP had gotten strong, all the left voters en masse voted for SFI. AISA then got 200 votes only.
If DSU were to get strong and looks likely to defeat ABVP, all voters will migrate there. No logic explains why muslims would vote for radical communists. Does it?! Noone really cares about Marx,Lenin or anyone else.
So AISF/SFI/AISA/DSU cater to the same vote bank. If DSU organises this really stupid event, then it will take all the credit + votes of all muslims. So all other left organisations go and support DSU. Kanhaiya Kumar included. When DSU is in line of fire, they say we arent part of it. When action is taken against them, then the same people again go and pressurise administration to go easy on them. All in all, they are all the same when it comes to india and indian state. Otherwise they may ve some idiotic differences between them.
