Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 16th Nov, 2013

Among all the parties in the electoral arena, Congress Party and BJP have earned the maximum trust of imperialism and the Indian big bourgeoisie.  They have demonstrated their ability to strike unprincipled deals and cobble together coalitions to align regional bourgeois groups with the agenda of globalisation through liberalisation and privatisation.  The Indian big bourgeoisie and the biggest imperialist powers of the world are keen to have one of these two trusted parties at the helm during 2014-19, in spite of their criminal record and the anger and hatred they have earned among the people.

Both the principal parties of the ruling class, Congress Party and BJP, have very little credibility amongst the masses of working people. The bourgeoisie is hell bent on pushing ahead with the program of globalization through liberalization and privatization by attacking the livelihood and rights of the toilers and tillers. Polarising society on communal lines, spreading terror and breaking the unity of the people, and spreading jingoism against Pakistan are their favourite weapons to ensure that they can implement their plans.

Blame the central state and its policy for the terror and insecurity faced by the peoples of the North East!

Submitted by cgpiadmin on Sun, 02/09/2012 - 01:20

Army rule is the reality in most parts of the North East.  For the peoples of the North-East, the departure of the British in 1947 did not mean the end of colonial rule.  The region has been ruled virtually as a colony from New Delhi right from that time.  When the peoples of this region have demanded their national and political rights, they have been beaten down ruthlessly, and called agents of foreign powers.

Having been at the receiving end of repression and terror at the hands of the central state and its agencies for so many decades, it is natural that the peoples of this region do not trust the central leaders, who are today promising protection for North-Eastern peoples, declaring they are all Indians.  Many of them can see that this is actually a veiled threat; they are being told to better be loyal to the Indian Union and its policy, if they want to feel safe.

Organising and sponsoring underground armed groups to carry out indiscriminate or sectarian violence, and then ordering the official armed forces to unleash terror in the name of restoring peace and order – this is the tried and tested method of rule of the Indian big bourgeoisie.  The Congress Party is the most experienced exponent of such divide and rule tactics, inherited from colonial times and further perfected since then.

Necessity for people's empowerment

Submitted by cgpiadmin on Sat, 17/09/2011 - 02:30

People cannot hand their entire power to their representatives; they need to have power to exercise control over their representatives. The party system of rule has to be eliminated. The role of political parties needs to be redefined to ensure that they become instruments of the people to become the rulers. People’s organisations and not political parties must select and reject candidates. They should have the right to recall those representatives who act against the mandate given to them by the people of their constituency. People must have the right to initiate legislation or propose amendments to legislations, as well as the right to vote on important issues through a referendum.

What is common in all three cases is that the courts, from the trial courts to the Supreme Court, passed political judgments based on concocted evidence by the state. The ruling class whipped up passions and the courts passed judgments accordingly. The court verdicts are a continuation of the policy of state terrorism unleashed by the Indian state against the people in these areas.

Fight for the victory of the proletarian revolution and the dictatorship of the proletariat!

The history of the working class movement of our country has confirmed that revision of the fundamental teachings and conclusions of Marxism Leninism, as well as its dogmatic rendering, have caused harm to the cause of the revolution and communism. Refusal to develop Indian revolutionary theory, thereby falling victim to the Eurocentric outlook that everything from our past is feudal and reactionary, has been a disease afflicting the communist movement in our country, which our Party has diagnosed and is working to overcome.
