To comrade MB Singh, General Secretary, NCP(Mashal) on behalf of the Central Committee of the CPI(ML) Red Star on the occasion of its 8th Congress

Dear Comrade,

On behalf of the Central Committee of the CPI(ML) Red Star, I extend revolutionary fraternal greetings to the Central Committee of the NCP(Mashal) and to the 8th Congress of your Party. Our two parties have a history of four decades of fraternal relations, and our close relation based on proletarian internationalism has stood the test of time. We hope you shall successfully complete the 8th Party Congress in a revolutionary atmosphere taking up the revolutionary tasks at national and international level.

The 8th Congress of your Party is taking place at a critical time when the imperialist system is intensifying its aggressive acts against the world people. At the same time, the inter-imperialist contradictions are also sharpening in newer forms like the trade war. Imperialist powers, especially US imperialism and its NATO allies are trying to perpetuate their hegemony by threatening Venezuela in Latin America, Iran in West Asia and other countries with armed intervention. With US and NATO backing the Zionist Israeli fascists are intensifying the genocide of the Palestinians. The imperialists are intensifying the plunder and oppression against the people of the neo-colonially dependent countries including India and Nepal.

At the same time, as our 11th Party Congress has pointed out, the Indian government, instead of standing with the South Asian countries and developing fraternal relations based on equality and non-interference in internal affairs, is continuing its expansionist policies against them fulfilling its role as a junior partner of US imperialism in the region. It is not because India has become an imperialist country as some friends like to think, but because of the comprador nature of its ruling classes who are dove-tailing India with the hegemonic interests of imperialist powers. While the CPI(ML) Red Star stead-fastedly stand with you and the people of Nepal, we in India still have to complete the People’s Democratic Revolution by overthrowing the still surviving imperialist yoke made more repressive under neo-liberal policies and corporatizatiion.

We in India, as you are aware, are facing the intensifying challenge posed by the corporate-saffron fascist regime guided by the RSS parivar and backed by the forces of international capital. After the just concluded elections which has ended with the return of these neo-fascist forces with more strength, we are afraid that its expansionist policies against its neighbouring countries may be further intensified. But, as a fraternal party we shall firmly stand with you, as earlier we have stood with you when the Modi government had blocked goods traffic, including vital petroleum, to Nepal.

As members of ICOR (International Co-ordination of Revolutionary Parties and Organisations), we are already working closely on all fronts upholding proletarian internationalism. Let us strive hard to develop our fraternal relations more closely in the coming days. We once again wish all success to your 8th Party Congress.

Long Live ICOR!

Long Live the Fraternal Relations Between NCP(Mashal) and CPI(ML) Red Star!

With fraternal greetings,

KN Ramachandran

General Secretary

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.
