OUR Party and its supporters are going to observe the 49th anniversary of the Party Day on 22nd April at a critical time in the history of our country. With the latest attack on the working class, Modi government, in the last year of its term, is further intensifying corporate – communal fascist onslaught on all toiling and oppressed masses in most reactionary forms. Under Brahminical RSS ideology, it is dividing and impoverishing the masses, spreading hate politics, intensifying neo-liberal plunder, unprecedentedly enriching the corporates and making corruption all pervasive.

While all non-BJP parties are vociferous in defeating it in 2019 elections, none of them are opposing the neo-liberal regime. Nor are they prepared to abandon communal-caste appeasement electoral approach. As far as the CPI(M) led ‘Left Front’ parties are concerned, in spite of debacles in Bengal and Tripura, they expose their social democratic bankruptcy by vehemently embracing neo-liberal policies in Kerala. As elsewhere in the world, situation is created when people’s opposition, their resistances are frustrated in the absence of a revolutionary alternative to stem this rot.

If the Naxalbari Uprising, the emergence of communist revolutionary forces and the formation of CPI(ML) took place in 1960s in a challenging crisis situation, today these challenges are many times more serious. While voting out BJP is an immediate task, the Marxist-Leninist forces should combine it with developing non-parliamentary struggles and parliamentary struggles complementary to it, with the perspective of strengthening independent communist assertion for building people’s alternative with an anti-capitalist manifesto, for all round democratization and sustainable paradigm of egalitarian development.

While observing the Party Day spiritedly, let us intensify our efforts to draft the People’s Manifesto according to concrete conditions in every state and launch mass political platforms to develop non-parliamentary and parliamentary struggles, and for coordinating them at all India level. At the same time, observe 22nd to 28th April as Bhangar Solidarity Week, with the determination to develop Bhangar like people’s resistance movements focusing on burning mass issues wherever possible. In such a spirited atmosphere let us advance towards our 11th Party Congress in November to decide on building the People’s Alternative to throw out corporate-communal fascist forces and to advance towards people’s democracy and socialism

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.
