SFI rebel faction becomes first party-independent JNU student body

The rebel faction of the Students' Federation of India (SFI) became the first party-independent student organisation in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). The organisation adopted a new constitution and a new name on Friday. The SFI-JNU will henceforth be called the Democratic Student's Federation (DSF). The DSF will be JNU's first students' organisation "without the influence of any parent political party". The new name was adopted after a two-day conference and a subsequent referendum held in the JNU campus. The DSF asked students to join the party and and contribute towards building a progressive, democratic, united and vibrant student movement. The organisation has more than 1,000 members.
