Thiruvananthapuram: Recurring controversies surrounding SFI cadres have become a burden for the ruling CPM government.

While the row surrounding SFI state secretary PM Arsho’s mark list has almost ended with Maharaja’s College principal backing his version and terming the issue a technical glitch, the allegations of forgery against former SFI member, K Vidya, have become a headache for the party.

The organisation which has a strong presence in the history of student movements in the state, has of late been attracting unwanted media attention. The organisation's members have been accused of alcoholism, forgery, and impostering in various incidents on campuses across Kerala over the last couple of years.

Serious allegations have been levelled against Vidya, who is accused of forging documents to secure a guest lecturer position. Although the party argues that the government has not helped her and anyone can forged documents, the controversy surrounding her admission to Kalady University is much more serious. The SC/ST cell reports that the reservation roster was subverted for Vidya's admission, and allegations of involvement by the vice-chancellor's office must be investigated.
