Nothing like learning it young@ money power in the elections! http://cities.expressindia.com/fullstory.php?newsid=145821 : the academic credentials are a pointer to how much importance the "student" part plays in the elections. To get the "student" back into student politics, perhaps we should have a regulatory mechanism governing age/academic performance for University Election candidates, so that people don't take double degrees and pursue mainstream political agendas under the guise of student politics.

True. I'm all for campus politics, but with some decency. Thanks for the link.

What is your position on whether these parties should be allowed to strike on working days? Or whether politics should be allowed to take up some of the regular working hours, say for the election?

Thanks Froginthewell for the comment.

Well, if they are allowed to strike, then I guess ther are allowed to strike on working days! There's no point in striking during the non-working days, right?

I think the right to strike should be there but students should use it judiciously and carefully. I'm against calling for a strike at the slightest provocation.
