Working class must oppose privatization in all its forms

Sir, I am writing to thank the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India for its very pointed and principled statement entitled ``Government sneaks in privatisation in the name of disinvestment: Working class must oppose privatization in all its forms.’’

The statement contains many important facts and figures regarding the activities of the Government and the big bourgeoisie in their insatiable thirst for riches and profit. The present targets for privatization are the profitable Public Sector Units which have been built with the sweat and labour of the people of India. Thus the activities of the Government in putting these up for disinvestment are deplorable and must be condemned in the strongest terms. The statement also makes important theoretical points which are worth emphasizing. These include the role of the state in providing security and livelihood to the people of the country. In this regard, the statement points out that through the philosophy of privatization, even the theoretical position of the duty of the state to its citizens has been abandoned.  What is now the centerpiece of statecraft, modeled after those of imperial European states, is that the state has no obligation to any except those with capital. The state’s function will be merely to ensure that the rights of capital are guaranteed, and that there will be secure conditions for capitalists to carry out their profit-making.  In this regard, it is further worth emphasizing that the CGPI alone in the country has been articulating this important theoretical position in the present period. In the sphere of theory of Marxisim-Leninism this represents the analysis of the concrete conditions that the country finds itself in, viz., that of the stranglehold of all sectors of life by the big bourgeoisie and its state.  In the sphere of practice, this would further translate into the movement isolating the bourgeoisie and its activities and to challenge it on this point. Thus, by opposing privatization in all forms, irrespective of what legal cloak the Government may provide to it, the movement for liberation of the people of India will gain strength. The antipode of the bourgeoisie, viz., the working class must thus arm itself with such theory and practice of Marxism-Leninism as in this statement to provide the leadership to the revolutionary camp. In conclusion, I am writing to second the call of the CC in calling on the Working class to oppose privatisation in all its forms. 

Sincerely, A.

Manifesto 2014Unite 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.
