SFI Karnataka state committee has planned a massive movement protesting the severe negligence by the authorities in implementing the 371 J Act which assured special consideration for 6 districts, known as Hyderabad Karnataka districts (HK Districts), in Karnataka. A huge rally will be held to the HK rural development board at Kalburgi on 3rd January. This particular act acknowledges the backwardness of 6 districts and sanctions special schemes and priority in education and jobs. Rupees 200 crore was allotted for each district to implement this act. But there have been a continues negligence by the concerned authorities to ensure the act is implemented. Last year, 1000 crore was lapsed due to this laxity. There are 35000 job vacancies remaining unfilled apart from 8000 teaching posts laying vacant in these districts. No action committee or action plan was made even after the continues demands risen by the people. This has actually worsened the situation in these districts and the people have been discriminated in all spheres. SFI will spread the struggle to more areas till the authorities come up with a proper  plan of action to implement 371 J Act and provide justice to the people of the most backward districts of the state. 


 Negligence and poor infrastructure take yet another young life.

On 19th December morning, 13-year-old Joshna, a student of Murarji residential school of Mulabhagilu town, Kolar district ( Karnataka) breathed her last, succumbing to the severe injuries in a wall collapse of the School's washroom.

SFI condemns the brutal negligence of the district and taluk officials over the pathetic infrastructure of Murarji residential school, that has now murdered a young life.

SFI demands to take strict actions against the warden, district social welfare officer and taluk welfare officer who are responsible for this tragedy and demands a compensation of 10 lakhs to be given to the victim's family. If demands are not met within ten days, SFI warns to go for the gherao of District social welfare office.

SFI has started a movement for prohibiting the use of poorly maintained buildings of educational institutions in the town. The authorities should investigate the infrastructural conditions of educational institutions and should conduct an immediate maintenance work for old infrastructures in Kolar. SFI demands the construction of new hostel buildings and toilets in all schools and colleges. 

Let no more life be compromised due to mismanagement and arrogance of authorities. And we assert that it is the responsibility of the Government to allocate more funds for building and maintaining the infrastructure of educational institutions.

Com Ashok Dhawle expressed that in the era of freedom struggle, Indians gave befitting reply to the British through united efforts. They showed perfect examples of communal harmony as freedom fighters from different religions fought shoulder to shoulder for the freedom of the nation. He added that Muslim League, RSS, and Hindu Mahasabha never raised voice against the British and took part in the freedom struggle. Today, RSS and BJP are misguiding the nation on communal line using the old tactic of divide and rule. He also emphasized that the Left and communists always stood firm against the British and are the thinkers of socialism. They not only showed determination but also courage to raise first voice against anti-social movements. He said that the rightwing is always feared of the Left and communists for their true patriotism. Comrade appealed people to strengthen the Left movement and uproot the Sangh motivated BJP government in the forthcoming parliamentary election in 2019.
