DEMOLISHING the statues and democratic values/institutions, and unleashing massive terror to maim the opponents are heinous tactics adopted by forces of reaction like Taliban in Afghanistan and RSS parivar in Tripura. If the revolution aspiring forces as the Naxalabari movement or those who supported it did such things as the Murthi todo movement in early 1970s, they only caused damages to the people’s movement and alienate it from the masses. So the communists should respond to what happened in Tripura by intensifying the propagation of Marxism-Leninism and by trying to apply it according to concrete conditions here. Like the CPI(M) leadership who have acted against Marxist-Leninist theory and practice for last five decades, we cannot sentimentalize the response to attack on Lenin’s statue. On the contrary, Communists should not promote the practice of building of statues and statues’ worshipping; instead of it we should intensify the struggle to create revolutionary changes which are the real aspirations of the people.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
