I have read a lot, seen a lot and heard a lot about campus politics. When thinking with the open mind of student who is bothered about the situation of the country today, i have a small comment on the campus politics.
I just completed my professional course from one of the most criticized campuses of today in the name of campus politics. So i guess am eligible to propose a view on the fact. Banning politics in campus is just like banning internet for the thousands of websites with so called inappropriate content.
What am telling is, the most important part of the country’s administration system is legislature. It is where the decisions are taken and new rules are made. Other pillars of democracy, namely executive,judiciary and media; does the job of implementing and cross checking the decisions made by legislature. So by banning the politics in campuses what todays society aims at? Creating a uneducated legislature, so that it acts as a spoon in the arms of the enemies of the state?
The main problem authority rises about the campus politics is, violence in the process. The campus is mostly youngsters between 17 and 25, the hot and energetic period, in malayalam ചോര തിളയ്ക്കുന്ന പ്രായം. It is the duty of society and authorities to control law and order situation. If students are able to think about parents when any problem comes, then they will never go to make any violence in campus. Also if somebody is going to make problems in campus, then he will make that irrespective of politics. It is the duty of society to provide good political basis, election mechanism and facilities. It is never the right solution to ban politics in campus just because the society and authorities fail to implement it in the right way.
Kept in anyway, campus politics acts as a direct impression of what happens in the original society. Is it because of that authorities opposes campus politics? I don’t know. I can’t express all I wanted. Please post your comments. Then I guess I will be able to open me up better.
