THE 11th Party Congress of CPI(ML) Red Star is held at a time when ultra rightist, corporate and fascist tendencies led by the camp of imperialists and its lackeys and compradors are strengthening at international level throwing up greater challenges before the working class and oppressed masses.

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 democratic 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. So also the ecological catastrophe! So also the relations with neighbouring countries have further worsened. In this situation, afraid of reverses in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the RSS parivar is intensifying the anti- Muslim, anti-Pak hatred campaign for strengthening the majoritarian communal vote bank to win elections at any cost.

We welcome the growing opposition to Modi rule and hope that people will vote it out in next elections. We appeal to all progressive democratic secular forces to do everything possible to make it happen. But 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 strives for people oriented, ecologically sustainable and egalitarian development paradigm. Such an alternative should focus on strengthening the independent left assertion at all levels. The Party calls for launching and strengthening Bhangar like people’s resistance movements, struggles for distribution of land to the tiller, and the working class struggles for building Mass Political Platforms at state and all India level based on People’s Manifesto.

We appeal to all struggling left and democratic forces, all oppressed classes and sections, and all progressive democratic forces to extent all possible support to make the 11th Party Congress a great step forward.

 Throw Out Neo-Liberal Raj and Saffron Fascism; Advance to Peoples Democracy and Socialism!

 No to BJP’s opposition free India; Build an India where Hundred Flowers Blossom, Hundred Thoughts Contend! 

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.
