I used to think voting and taking part in an election is the democratic right of everyone,until today.
tomorrow is the student's general election of presidency college,kolkata; i.e;my college.i've filed a dummy nomination and my friend shakri is running for the post of CR from our pg1 of botany dept.both of us are supporting IC,the independent consolidation; the ruling party of college.
today i got a call from the opposition. they asked politely me not to take part.i cut the line and switch off the phone.
at night 7 or 8 people came to my home.only one was from our college . rest were from CPI(M),the mother party of SFI,the opposition. they told me that there will be probs tomorrow at college and i better not to go. also i should not contact anyone and it'd be better if i detach my sim card. and there will be two helpful people who will guard our door, so that i can not go out of house tomorrow. very nice. i just wonder that so helpful people exists in todays world.
my sis, a journo, called someone who is at a top position of SFI in state level. she has a personal relationship with him. and he assured me to go college and to call him directly if i face any kind of problem. he also told me that he has given the necessary instructions.
so i'm a bit relieved. but still, i dont know what will happen tomorrow. but isnt it undemocratic to threaten somone like that. it could be someone else with no connections. what would happen then????
what do u think??????
