the Central Committee of the Party has called for observing the centenary of the Communist movement in our country starting from 17th October 2019 and culminating on 17th October, 2020, hundred years since the first meeting of the Indian communists was held at Tashkent in 1920, which gave birth to the Communist Party in India and constituted its first Central Committee.

As expected, from day-1, Modi-2 is trying to take one step after another towards its Hindurashtra agenda. Though its effort to impose Hindi is withdrawn following mighty resistance, especially from Southern states, the draft New Education Policy is threatening us with its goal of saffronization of education. Now Modi had convened a meeting of leaders of political parties on 19th June for implementing ‘One Nation, One Election’ plan. Though Modi and BJP had such ideas during his first term also, any such initiative to implement it could not be taken. This move is an extension of the RSS slogan, One…

The recent Draft New Education Policy put forward by the Modi government based on the 2018 draft put forward by the seven-member TSR Subramanian Committee Report with no known educational experts in it, replacing the existing 10+2+3 year pattern with 5+3+3+4+4, is an ingenious move to saffronise and commercialize education, at the same time making it more elite-oriented. In the proposed scheme, while there is no formal education to children in the “pre-primary stage” up to the age of 8 and “later primary stage” during the 8-11 age, the so-called secondary education that is envisaged thereafter is totally oriented to…

Soon after Modi-2 took over, there are reports of a spurt in mob lynching, attacks on Muslims and dalits, on journalists and democratic people across the country. Fascisation of all fields is taking place more aggressively. The RSS parivar is on the offensive to transform India into a Hindu Rashtra by 2024, as its spokespersons repeatedly assert. While the Congress and other opposition parties are in total disarray, the BJP is on the offensive in West Bengal and elsewhere to de-stabilize the existing non-BJP state governments also. But, in spite of all this, like what happened during 2014-19, once again…

Following the latest round of trade negotiations between US and China failing to reach any agreement, US had imposed $200 billion worth tariff hikes on goods and services imported from China. Trump also warned that if China retaliates, he will impose more stringent tariff hikes. Rejecting his threats, now China has hit back imposing tariff hike on $60 billion worth US goods. Along with imposing sanctions against Venezuela and Iran, strictly banning sales of petroleum products, and threatening all countries against purchasing petroleum from them, Trump has taken a hawkish stand intensifying the contradictions among the imperialist countries, as well…

When the dates of the elections to the 17th Lok Sabha was coming nearer it became clear for the RSS think tanks that even the best possible narrative about five years’ achievements of the Modi government is not going to help it to win again. It was then Pulwama happened, followed by Balakot air strike inside Pakistan. A new narrative was soon put forward and widely marketed with national security and Modi’s sena like utterances. But, after the first phase of elections before which burning problems of the masses like unemployment, farmers’ suicides became so strident that they started influencing…

The working class all over the world is observing the May Day this year when the onslaughts against them in all fields are intensifying day by day.

But what we are witnessing during the post Second World War decades, especially after the setbacks suffered by the international communist movement, is…
