This parasitic and rotten system is a burden on the working class!
Statement of the Delhi Regional Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 1 May 2016
Comrades, Red Salute on May Day!
Over 130 years ago the working class heralded the struggle for their rights as workers demanded eight hours working day, with eight hours of rest and another eight to be dedicated to fulfilling their duties towards the society. To crush the struggle of the working class of Chicago the government of the capitalist imprisoned the workers, condemned them to harsh punishment and tortured them in various ways, including sending them to the gallows. The police and security forces of the capitalists fired upon them, killing hundreds of workers. The flag in the hands of the workers was drenched in their blood and this became the symbol of their struggle against the capitalists class.
The Second Plenum of the 6th Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India was convened on 25-26 March, 2017. Assessing the developments on the world scale, the Plenum noted the intensification of inter-imperialist contradictions and the growing tendency of capitalist ruling classes to resort to fascist methods of rule. It noted that the Indian big bourgeoisie is marching on an extremely dangerous path and could drag us into a reactionary war to fulfil its selfish aims.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 8th January, 2017
On 2nd January, the Supreme Court of India passed a ruling that “No politician can seek vote in the name of caste, creed, or religion," and that “such actions would be against the secular ethos of the Constitution and amount to corrupt poll practices.”
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 15th August, 2016
The Government of India has made preparations for celebrating the 70th Independence Day with great pomp and pride. However, there is serious concern among the vast majority of our people about where Indian society is headed today, 69 years after the end of British colonial rule.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 25th June, 2016
The latest policy changes announced by the Narendra Modi government regarding foreign direct investment (FDI) have opened the doors wider than ever before for foreign capital to rapidly penetrate India’s industry, services, agricultural trade, finance and weapons supply to the armed forces.
Escalate the struggle against the anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program of the ruling class!
Statement of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, March 10, 2016
At the call of the trade unions, crores of workers are participating in protest rallies all over the country today. Once again, we workers are on the streets demanding that the government address our concerns and fulfill our demands.
Six months ago, on 2nd September, 2015, crores of workers participated in an All-India General Strike. We raised our collective voice against the unbearable levels of inflation, unemployment, job insecurity and all-sided attacks on workers’ rights. We demanded an immediate halt to privatisation in vital sectors including railways, banking, insurance, defence production and retail trade. We opposed the opening up of more and more sectors of the economy to foreign direct investment. But our voices keep falling on deaf years.
Unite and fight for a State that would guarantee prosperity and protection for all!
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 5th December, 2015
The demolition of Babri Masjid exposed the fact that communalism and communal violence had become an unwritten policy of the Indian State. It is not the religious beliefs of anyone that is to blame. It is the ruling class and its method of rule that is responsible.
The dispute over Babri Masjid was deliberately reignited by the Indian big bourgeoisie to divide the people on communal lines. The aim was to disrupt and paralyze the struggles of the working class and people against the all sided attacks being launched on their rights, as well as to suppress dissident factions within the bourgeois class.
Communal violence and incitement of competing sectarian agitations based on religion and caste were all deployed to create a climate of mayhem and chaos, within which the unpopular policy changes could be pushed through. This is the real explanation for the rapid escalation of communal and sectarian violence in the nineties.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 17th November, 2015
The Communist Ghadar Party of India condemns the murderous attacks that took place in Paris on the evening of November 13, 2015, resulting in the death of over 120 people and grievous injuries to hundreds more. The CGPI also condemns the terrorist attack in Beirut, Lebanon on November 12, 2015, in which 43 people died and over 200 people injured. Earlier in October, nearly 100 people were killed and many injured in the Turkish capital Ankara in suicide bomb attacks. The CGPI extends its deep sympathies to the families of all those who have suffered as a result of such heinous crimes.
These crimes are unjustifiable. They have as their target, the working people, who are not in any way responsible for the state terrorism and wars unleashed by the US and its allies.
The French government, as well as the imperialist controlled media have blamed a group operating in Syria and Iraq for the Paris killings. This has been used as a justification for dramatically escalating its military intervention in Syria.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 21st August, 2015
In place of capital-centered reforms, the working class fights for the implementation of human-centered reforms. Instead of being oriented to maximize capitalist profits, the economy and government policy must be reoriented to maximize the degree of fulfillment of human needs, both material and cultural... The human-centered agenda of economic reorientation will not be implemented by BJP or Congress Party. Only a political front led by the working class and including the peasants and other oppressed sections will have the interest and capacity to end the capital-centered orientation.
Statement of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, August 21, 2015
The soldiers and officers of the armed forces spend their entire serving career defending the country and ready to risk their lives in doing so. When they retire from service, their simple demand is that they be treated with dignity.
The capitalist class in power considers the soldier to be an expendable commodity just like the factory worker— to be used and thrown away. The political parties of this class pretend to be very patriotic, mouthing the slogan “Jai jawan, Jai Kisan”. However, their track record shows that they care neither for the Kisaan nor for the jawan. They only care about the prosperity of the biggest capitalist houses, for which they are ready to spend any amount of public funds. Just like the workers and peasants of our country, our soldiers too have been forced to take the path of struggle in defence of their dignity and rights.
Call of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 16th May, 2015
On May 26, leaders of the trade union movement from different sectors of the economy will gather in New Delhi to deliberate on the course of action that trade unions must chart at this time. The working class of India expects that this Conference of the Joint Action Committee of Trade Unions will come out with a plan to inflict a decisive defeat on the thoroughly anti-national and anti-social program of liberalisation and privatisation.
Unite to establish a new state that ensures prosperity and protection for all!
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 28th November, 2014
The demolition of Babri Masjid revealed that the present Indian state and all its institutions are instruments of state terrorism. Far from fulfilling the duty of ensuring security and prosperity for the people, this state is an instrument of the biggest monopolies to enrich themselves through the savage exploitation of the land, labour and natural resources of our people. State terrorism, the targeting of this or that community for genocidal massacres, is a preferred weapon in its arsenal to smash the unity of the people.
Without repealing AFSPA and ending Army rule, there can be no solution to the Kashmir problem
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 22nd November, 2014
The present situation in Kashmir is a stalemate. Elections under Army rule will not make a break with the status quo. The first step to resolve the crisis is to repeal AFSPA and pull back the armed forces into their barracks. This is the necessary condition for seeking a political solution to the Kashmir problem. In the absence of a political solution that respects the rights of nations and peoples to self-determination, the situation is bound to remain turbulent, with increasing danger of imperialist interference and war in South Asia.
Unite against state terrorism and the anti-worker and anti-people program of liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation!
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 22nd November, 2014
Elections in the existing political system are designed to enable the bourgeois class, headed by the big monopolies of the Tatas, Ambanis, Birlas and others, to place in power that party or coalition which can best implement their program and justify it in the eyes of the people.
Parties committed to one and the same program are trying their best to divide the people along the lines of their dogfight. The situation calls for political unity of the workers, peasants, tribal and forest communities, against state terrorism and against the capitalist program of maximising exploitation and plunder. We need to rally around the alternative program to solve the problems of the economy and the political system.
Towards a new state that ensures prosperity and protection for all!
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 28th October, 2014

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 4th June, 2014
"Sab ka saath, sab ka vikaas!" (Together with all, for the development for all!) This is the slogan with which the BJP led by Narendra Modi has swept to power at the centre, capturing 52% of the seats and reducing Congress Party to a small minority in the Parliament.
Women must champion the struggle for worker-peasant rule and socialism!
Let us unite and escalate our struggle, as workers and as women!
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 25th February, 2014
As we mark International Women’s Day on 8th March this year, it is necessary that we recall the genesis of this annual global celebration, which started more than a hundred years ago. The first IWD was celebrated in 1911, at a conference of working women from Europe and the United States. That historic conference was held under the banner of the struggle for socialism.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 9th February, 2014

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.

On the morning of 9 February, under the cover of utmost secrecy, the Indian state hanged Mohammed Afzal Guru and buried him inside Tihar Jail in Delhi. His family and the rest of the country came to know only after the fact. The execution of Afzal Guru was a shameless and cowardly act that cannot be justified in the name of law and justice. On the contrary, the evidence shows
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 22nd January, 2013
The glaring contradiction between the voices being raised on Raj Path and on the jan path, between those in Parliament and those on Parliament street, reflects the inevitable clash between the forces of the Old and the forces of the New. The old order is crumbling. A new order is struggling to be born. Those who benefit from the old order are using their power to prolong its life, to postpone its end for as long as possible.
Let us work unitedly to make the All India General Strike a success!
The working class is resolutely combating the attacks it is facing. In order to guarantee maximum profits for the capitalist class, the government is relentlessly implementing measures that are resulting in continuous increase of prices of essential commodities of daily consumption.
As the year 2012 comes to an end, we have seen mass outrage being expressed on the streets of Delhi and other cities against the existing rotten social and political system which permits the most horrendous crimes against women.
The Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India deeply grieves the passing away of our dear T.S. Sankaran, fondly known as Mama by all the comrades of the Party, on December 15, 2012 at the age of 86 in Chennai.
Our Party dips its red banner in salute to this exemplary personality, whose word and deed always matched. His life and work will always be an example of inspiration for us communists, and for all those who have had the opportunity to work or interact with him in the course of his multifaceted life. The Central Committee of our Party extends its deep felt condolences to his dear wife and to all the members of his beloved family who have suffered an irreparable loss.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 12 August, 2012
Sixty five years after independence from the British, who is free in India today? Workers, peasants, intellectuals, women, religious minorities, nations and nationalities are all oppressed. The big bourgeoisie has used the state of the Indian Republic to become the most dominant and ruling force of society, and is dragging the entire country onto a dangerous path – colluding and contending with other imperialist powers, and has grown rich not only by domestic but also through external plunder. The time has come to negate this state which negates the rights and aspirations of all our peoples. This can be done if and only if the working class takes the lead. For India to be free and independent, it is essential that every part our country, every section of our people, is free from oppression or discrimination of any kind. On the 65th anniversary of independence, the Communist Ghadar Party calls on all… to unite firmly around the program to reconstitute the Indian Union on a voluntary basis, redefine democracy to empower the people!

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 28 November, 2011

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 6th November, 2011

Private companies have taken over the massive infrastructure, equipment, offices, substations and real estate belonging to the Delhi government for a song. New meters have been forcibly installed, which the workmen who install say are doctored. The workers who come to fix lines are contract labour. The only permanent staff is those who are near retirement, or are collecting bills.
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 28th August, 2011
The mass agitation has raised the level of consciousness about the fundamental flaw in the existing system of democracy, in which big business interests and their corrupt parties control the Lok Sabha. It has further exposed multi-party representative democracy as a process designed to permit the biggest exploiters, corrupt ministers and officials to loot and plunder our land and labour... The question that has assumed centre-stage by the development of events is where supreme power lies, and where it must lie. Who is sovereign? Is the people’s will supreme or is the will of Parliament or will of Cabinet supreme?
Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 18 August, 2011

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 1st August, 2011
The position of the Communist Ghadar Party of India is that the time has come to end the monopoly of legislative power held by the Members of Parliament. The time has come to vest supreme decision-making power in the hands of the people as a whole, so that (i) absolute power is vested where it belongs, and where the toiling majority of people want it; (ii) no member of society is above the law, which is equally binding on all, and (iii) the will of the majority actually prevails.

Anglo-American troops and intelligence agents – Out of South Asia!
Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 5th May, 2011
Terrorism as a preferred tactic of imperialist geo-politics was first introduced in our region by the two superpowers, US imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism. After the expulsion of Soviet troops from Afghanistan, the American and British imperialists and their intelligence agencies, the CIA and MI5, became the principal sponsors of terrorist groups in west and south Asia, using them to topple regimes, infiltrate popular movements and destroy nations in their drive for unquestioned world domination.
