Hurricane Of Left In West - Poem by vijay gupta
Hurricane of left in west
A hurricane of left came in the student politics of western U.P (INDIA) during 1970-75.
A small group of students consisting of Shri Shyam Veer Rathi,
Mr. Prabhat Sharma, Mehkar Singh, Bachan Singh Mauji & others were the member of that team which bring the chain of agitations in student
Politics in mainly at Meerut College, Meerut & other near by areas to high light the problems of youth of those days.
Com. Jagmer Singh, student of M.A, NAS College the then district secretary of S.F.I Meerut was also the key member of that team.
This young energetic student was full of vigour & talent.
He was a thinker, philosopher & a planner.
He had adequate knowledge of Marxism & Leninism.
During 1970-75 he played a key role in engineering
and guiding the student movements of that time to highlight the problems of youth of those days.
In India an agitation for total revolution
Was going on under the leadership of
Mr. Jai Prakash Narayan a saryodayait leader on national scale.
In the mean time this team of handful students creates the hurricane of leftism in student politics in our west region.
Unaccountable movements were launched during that period.
At one instance, it was the time of annual function
in Meerut College, Meerut.
Mr. Shyam Veer Rathi stood before the crowd & shouted the slogans
against unemployment & uselessness of this present education system.
He also tears his degrees of M.A & BA awarded by Meerut University, Meerut to him by saying that these degrees are useless for students in earning their bread.
This type of agitation was of new in style & shape
And become burning news on national level at that time.
See another movement of that period.
Mr. Shyam Veer Rathi & two other students were sitting on hunger strike before the gate of Meerut College Meerut for some student’s demand.
Hunger strike was going on.
In an evening the then president of student union
Mr. Satyaveer Singh along with ex Presidents Mr. Tejpal Singh & M.P Singh (piddi) made an agreement with college authorities without consulting agitating youth of Meerut College Meerut under the leadership of Mr. Shyam Veer Rathi & others.
Their act of agreement with authorities was taken as an act of treachery with the student movement and with the interest of the students.
com- Jagmer Singh the then key member of S.F.I taken it seriously.
He prepared a pamphlet against this act of treachery and with out delay distributed it among students with the help of other comrades like Ashok Sharma, Rajendra Bhushan,
Bachan Singh Mauji & others & asked the students to come on kutchery bridge next day.
Believe me that the crowd of about four thousands students came on the bridge to hear com. Shayam Veer & prabhat Sharma the then student leaders of that time.
The skill of com- Jagmer Singh was like a miracle at the time of such student’s movements.
The demands of students accepted later after this movement.
Now com- Jagmer Singh is suffering from a cruel disease ‘cancer’ from two & a half yrs.
In last I pray the God for his blessings & to give peace & courage to bear this grief to his family members.
