For quick reference, section 1 is provided below.


1. Party Members, their Duties and Rights

1.1 Any resident of India or person of Indian origin, who does not exploit the labour of others, who is at least 18 years of age, and who accepts the Program and the Constitution of the Party and who works actively to put them into practice, who takes part and works in one of the party organisations, who carries out all the decisions of the Party and who regularly pays membership dues can be a member of the Communist Ghadar Party of India.

 

1.2. The duties of the Party members are:

a) to work in an organisation of the Party and come under its discipline

b) to resolutely defend the unity of the Party, to vigorously fight all factionalist activity, to wage a relentless struggle against all alien, bourgeois ideologies and theories, to wage a relentless struggle against liberalism, anarchism, cronyism and bureaucratism, to defend the Party, its general line and integrity at all costs and to defend the purity of Marxism-Leninism and the principles of proletarian internationalism, and to strictly abide by and implement the policy and decisions of the Party.

It is not enough for the Party member merely to accept the decisions of the Party, he must also be an active fighter for carrying them out; a passive and formal attitude of communists towards party decisions weakens the fighting capacity of the Party. The Party member should always take a revolutionary stand in regard to party decisions. There cannot be two disciplines in the Party, one for the leaders and one for the rank-and-file; the Party has only one discipline, which is equally obligatory on all the Party members, regardless of the merits and the position any individual may have;

c) to work untiringly to master the Marxist-Leninist theory, linking it closely with life, with the practice of revolution, to fight relentlessly to temper one’s own revolutionary consciousness; to harmonise one’s individual interests with the interests of the working class and the general interests of society; in short, to think, work and live like a revolutionary and to put communist politics in command of all of one’s activity;

d) to continuously strengthen one’s ties with the people, to live up to one’s principles of justice, honesty and modesty; to win the respect and confidence of the masses of the working people; to be a vanguard fighter everywhere and at all times; to not separate words from deeds; to fight conceit, arrogance, servility, career-seeking, indifference, liberalism and authoritarianism; to learn from the people and be their leader and educator, to explain the policy and decisions of the Party to the working people; to work actively in the mass organisations; to be an agitator, propagandist, an ardent defender of the line of the Party; in short, to always uphold communist morality;

e) to set an example of conscientious work, to be a tireless worker, to work ceaselessly to raise one’s educational and cultural level, to enhance one’s professional abilities, to master technology, to aim for high quality in all work, to fight any alien attitude towards work, to energetically support the progressive new and fight for its dissemination, all in the service of the Party;

f) to continuously raise the level, activisation and participation of all communists in the life and work of the Party; to develop a comradely spirit throughout the Party and never consider as unnecessary expenditure of time or effort the work of fostering, training and educating new communists; also to work to gain new recruits for the Party;

g) to be a ruthless and courageous fighter against the class enemy, to wage the class struggle unhesitatingly and without let-up, to constantly sharpen one’s revolutionary vigilance in defence of the Party, Marxism-Leninism and the principles of proletarian internationalism; to rise courageously against any distortion  and wavering in the implementation of the line of the Party, against any influence of bourgeois ideologies;

h) to consider the preservation of Party secrets and organisational details a sacred duty, to be constantly vigilant against the class enemy and its attacks on the Party, to unwaveringly abide by the rules of secrecy on all fronts and under all conditions;

i) to be an open book in front of the Party; to conceal nothing from the Party;

j) to develop unrestricted criticism and self-criticism, especially criticism from below-up, to be severe and merciless towards one’s own shortcomings and errors, which one should not conceal from the Party, as well as towards the shortcomings and errors of others, to expose them, and through example and just struggle help to correct them, to be irreconcilable with those who suppress criticism or hamper its development and replace it with bombastic words and praises; to struggle against being satisfied with little, against being complacent or becoming dizzy with success;

k) to intervene energetically to correct shortcomings and weaknesses observed in work and unjust attitudes, and, if necessary, to report them to the leading organs of the Party right up to the Central Committee, without hesitation and regardless of what person may be involved; the Party member should never conceal an unsatisfactory state of affairs, and should allow no unjust actions, which harm the interests of the Party and revolution; If a member fails to carry out the above duties properly, he or she is subject to criticism and disciplinary measures of an educative character. In cases when the member violates them seriously, breaches the unity of the Party, transgresses the decisions of the Party, damages Party property or deceives the Party, he or she is punished severely, up to expulsion from the Party.

 

1.3. The Party member has the right:

a) to take part freely and actively in the discussion of issues regarding party policy and plan, at Party meetings and in the Party press;

b) to criticise, at Party meetings, the activity and conduct of any Party member, regardless of the post the member holds;

c) to elect and to be elected to the leading organs of the Party;

d) to take part personally on all occasions at which a decision is taken concerning one’s own activity or conduct;

e) to address oneself to the leading organs of the Party, up to the Central Committee over any personal or Party problems and to ask any questions, and make any requests, statements and proposals to them.
