Undaunted by Setbacks, Marxist-Leninists Should Surge Forward

03 September 2017
THE CPI(M) Left Front was once again totally decimated in the latest elections to the seven municipal councils in Bengal. The way the LDF government is ruling in the state, it may happen to it in Kerala also. But as many anti-communists and counter revolutionaries try to spread, it is not going to be the end of Marxism. A much more fierce attack on Marxism and socialist path had taken place when Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991 and China degenerated to capitalist path. But Marxism has survived all these severe setbacks caused due to alien trends gaining domination within it. Combating these alien trends and developing Marxism to present conditions, the Marxist-Leninist forces are evolving new paths of social change and advancing the revolutionary struggles. As imperialist camp, in spite of its neo-colonial, neo-liberal offensive, is confronting more severe crises, leading to ecological catastrophe and unprecedented impoverishment of the masses, it is becoming clearer than ever that socialism is the only possible alternative before world people. So undaunted by the setbacks, the communist revolutionaries should develop Marxist theory and practice according to present condition and advance towards people’s political power and people oriented development paradigm

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.
