Appeal by the Central Committee of the CPI(ML) Red Star: Make 11th Party Congress at Bengaluru a Great Success!
Fight Neo-Liberal Raj, Fight Saffron Fascism; Advance towards Peoples Democracy and Socialism!
No to opposition free India; Build an India where Hundred Flowers Blossom, Hundred Thoughts Contend!
Long Live CPI (ML) Red Star!
Dear Comrades and friends, revolutionary greetings.
The 11th Congress of our Party is being held from 27th November to 1st December at Bengaluru, preceded by mass rally on 26th November. It is held when ultra rightist, corporate and fascist tendencies are strengthening at international level. They are throwing up greater challenges before the working class and oppressed masses. As the crisis of the international finance capital system continues to intensify, the imperialist powers, with the US in the forefront, are more aggressively shifting their burden to world people through increasing local wars, arms race, trade war etc.
At the national level, under the ultra rightist Modi rule, the neo-liberal policies are intensified at maddening pace. Through demonetization and GST, the corporate loot has further intensified. Communal fascist policies are accelerated. Attacks on the minorities, dalits, adivasis, women and all other oppressed classes have increased. Under Manuvadi policies all existing progressive values are attacked. History and culture are saffronized. Unemployment and price rise have sky-rocketed. Housing, healthcare and education are going beyond common man’s reach. Corruption has become more rampant. As a result, people’s opposition to Modi rule is increasing .
We welcome these reversals to Modi rule. We hope that people will vote out Modi government in next elections. But as repeatedly proved, replacement of Modi rule by the combination of regional parties along with Congress alone cannot provide an alternative to BJP’s corporate, saffron fascist policies. What is required is a people’s alternative, which rejects the neo-liberal regime, works for democratization of all fields, stands for casteless and genuinely secular polity, and which shall strive for a people oriented and ecologically sustainable development paradigm. Such an alternative should focus on strengthening the independent left assertion also. For this we have to launch and strengthen Bhangar like people’s resistance movements wherever possible, and build mass political platforms from state to all India level based on a People’s Manifesto.
After the great Naxalbari Uprising and CPI(ML) formation we had aspired to advance along the path of revolution. But, due to wrong analysis of Indian situation and left adventurist tactical line on the one hand, and due to fierce state repression on the other, the movement suffered severe setbacks and disintegrated. It was by rectifying these mistakes and by developing Marxist-Leninist theory and practice according to present conditions, the CPI(ML) Red Star was built up as a struggling organization through four decades of strenuous efforts. In continuation to numerous movements led by the party during last two decades, the Bhangar movement has become a breakthrough. It has immense possibilities for development at all levels. It shall inspire many more such upsurges in coming days. We appeal to all struggling left and democratic forces, all oppressed classes and sections to extent all possible support to make the 11th Party Congress at Bengaluru a great step forward.
March Towards Bengaluru party Congress With Revolutionary Vigour!
Long Live Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought!
Long Live Proletarian Internationalism! Long Live ICOR!
Advance along the Path of People’s Democratic Revolution as part of World Proletarian Socialist Revolution!
