 The DYFI emerged after three very important events in our state. The first was the historic railway strike that brought the country to a standstill in 1974 and the student movements of Bihar and Gujarat. Then there was the Allahabad High court judgment and the imposition of internal emergency. A massive movement emerged with the youth in the forefront, leading to the defeat of Indira Gandhi and the coming to power of the Janata Party. The most significant thing in this process was that Jayapraksh Narayan insisted on keeping the youth and students, the force of his Tarun Kranti, separate from the movements of workers and peasants. So while they were able to change governments, issues of social transformation were given the back seat.

The formation of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) out of number of state level organizations fulfilled this need admirably. Today, it has added tasks to complete as well. The DYFI is today the largest youth organisation that is a constituent of the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY). The experience and perspective of the DYFI conference will no doubt make a mark on the anti-imperialist youth movement whose importance grows with every year of globalisation that passes. So from Ludhiana to Amritsar, we can assess a record of action and change a record that shows the DYFI as the largest, most sacrificing and responsible organisation of youth that India has seen since independence.
