Political developments in Tamilnadu reveal the complete marginalisation of people in this system of parliamentary democracy. ... People are utterly disgusted by the arbitrary actions of the factions of the ruling AIADMK and the interference of the central government. At the same time, they feel helpless in this system which does not allow them any role beyond casting their vote on Election Day.
What is happening in Tamilnadu has once more revealed the reality of parliamentary democracy before the masses of people. It has once more underscored the fact that the present system of democracy only serves the bourgeois class, which is a tiny minority.
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?
Elections in West Bengal: Bengal needs change of system
The CPI Maoist claims to officially have no faith in parliamentary democracy and has a line of permanent boycott. Its complete opportunism is revealed by its support for the TMC- Congress combine in West Bengal, allegedly to defeat the "main enemy", the CPI(M).
Bengal definitely needs change. The issue is this. Will replacing the Left Front government by a TMC Congress government address the problems of workers and peasants of Bengal? Or the entire political and economic system needs radical transformation? The Communist Ghadar Party of India firmly believes that the entire political and economic system needs radical transformation, a Navnirman of the Indian state and society. The line pursued by the CPI(M) and the Left Front it leads have been a biggest block to this Navnirman.
Mazdoor Ekta Lehar salutes the millions of fighting women of our country and the world on the occasion of International Working Women's Day, 2011. We salute the working women who are in the front lines of the battles against the attacks on the livelihood and rights of the working class. We salute the university and school girls fighting for the rights of students and of workers. We salute the women of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Algeria, and other countries, who have come out courageously on to the streets facing the armed might of unpopular regimes, fighting to take control of their own destinies.
The all India general strike has been called to resolutely oppose the course of enriching the capitalist minority by impoverishing the toiling majority. It has been called to assert the rights that belong to workers, peasants and other toiling people who create the wealth of India.
Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation and privatisation. The truth is that there IS an alternative.The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the program for the Navnirman of India.
The Report to the Fifth Congress of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, presented by Comrade Lal Singh, General Secretary of the CGPI, on behalf of its Central Committee, was discussed and adopted by the Fifth Congress of the CGPI, held in November 2016. By decision of the Fifth Congress, this report has been edited for publication.
The first part of this pamphlet is an analysis of facts and phenomena to identify and expose the real aims behind the Note Ban. The second part is devoted to a critical appraisal of the government’s claims that it will reduce inequality, corruption and terrorism. The third part is what Communist Ghadar Party believes is the real solution to these problems and the immediate program of action towards that solution.
Unite around the program to reconstitute the Indian Republic and reorient the economy to ensure prosperity and protection for all!
There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program.
