In defence of the identity of the worker

Sir,

I am writing to thank you for carrying the educational and informative article entitled `Necessity to defend the identity of the working class’ which is the fourth and concluding part of a series of articles on this most important and burning question, in the September 1-15, 2013 issue of MEL.

It is an important article as it carries out one of the ongoing tasks of the proletarian revolution. It strengthens the basis of class struggle discovered by Karl Marx in the nineteenth century in Europe and is the basis of the dynamics of society in twenty first century India. It is important because it stems the flow of retrogression that has gripped all sections of Indian society, partly due to the uninterrupted barrage of misinformation and propaganda of the bourgeoisie.

The article starts by pointing out that a wrong line has been implanted by the bourgeoisie which is that there are no classes in India, but rather that there are only rich and poor and the middle class. In fact, capitalist development in India has led to unparalleled growth in the riches of the Indian bourgeoisie which has led them to aspire for imperialist domination. The article points out a very important feature of modern India, which is that the middle strata of peasants and artisans has numerically dwindled and has been decimated by the growth of capitalism, with the rise of the working population as the majority. Indeed, the main dynamic in the society is the further polarization of India into the bourgeoisie and the proletariat. The working class is the revolutionary class at this time.

It is important to bring this feature back into the centre-stage of class struggle and carry out the unfinished tasks of revolution. The unity of communists as this time to become the vanguard of the working class and of revolution remains the other unfinished task. Thus, by deliberating on the question of `who is a worker?’ our Party has contributed to the theoretical advancement of revolution. I thank you again for carrying this article, reading which is a must for anyone interested in the proletarian revolution.


Sincerely, A.Narayan

Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no
alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation
and privatisation. The truth is thatthere 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.
