The people of Gujarat must refuse to fall into the trap of this or that party of the rulers. They must defeat the divide and rule tactic of the ruling class by uniting as one in defence of the rights of all. In the present case, it is by upholding the banner "education for all, jobs for all" , and condemning state repression against any section of the people that they will be able to defeat the divisive agenda of the ruling class... All sections of the people of India are waging a just struggle in defence of their rights, against the attacks of the ruling class and its state. Together, we must wage the struggle with the perspective of establishing a new state with a new economic orientation that will actually guarantee security and prosperity to all.

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 21st August, 2015
In place of capital-centered reforms, the working class fights for the implementation of human-centered reforms. Instead of being oriented to maximize capitalist profits, the economy and government policy must be reoriented to maximize the degree of fulfillment of human needs, both material and cultural... The human-centered agenda of economic reorientation will not be implemented by BJP or Congress Party. Only a political front led by the working class and including the peasants and other oppressed sections will have the interest and capacity to end the capital-centered orientation.
Statement of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, August 21, 2015
The soldiers and officers of the armed forces spend their entire serving career defending the country and ready to risk their lives in doing so. When they retire from service, their simple demand is that they be treated with dignity.
The capitalist class in power considers the soldier to be an expendable commodity just like the factory worker— to be used and thrown away. The political parties of this class pretend to be very patriotic, mouthing the slogan “Jai jawan, Jai Kisan”. However, their track record shows that they care neither for the Kisaan nor for the jawan. They only care about the prosperity of the biggest capitalist houses, for which they are ready to spend any amount of public funds. Just like the workers and peasants of our country, our soldiers too have been forced to take the path of struggle in defence of their dignity and rights.
The all India general strike has been called to resolutely oppose the course of enriching the capitalist minority by impoverishing the toiling majority. It has been called to assert the rights that belong to workers, peasants and other toiling people who create the wealth of India.
Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation and privatisation. The truth is that there IS an alternative.The alternative is to reorient the economy to fulfil people’s needs instead of fulfilling capitalist greed. This is the program for the Navnirman of India.

The third part is what Communist Ghadar Party believes is the real solution to these problems and the immediate program of action towards that solution.
Unite around the program to reconstitute the Indian Republic and reorient the economy to ensure prosperity and protection for all!
There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program.
