I am writing to thank you for the article entitled "Sri Krishna Committee submits report on Telangana: Condemn the deliberate inflaming of passions among the people!'' in the columns of the January 16-31, 2011 issue of Mazdoor Ekta Lehar. The article must be commended on many points, including its simple and scientific language, historical accuracy and the complete honesty of purpose. These stem from the sound ideo-political basis of the analysis based on the highest principles of Marxism-Leninism on which all the work of our party is based. It is also partisan in the sense of championing the interests of the working peoples and indeed of all the peoples of India. It also brings out the important feature of the parasitism of the Indian bourgeoisie and its narrow and self-serving interests and demonstrates the path of disaster that it carves out in its activities for much of the population of the country.
The article points out that the main division of the camps in India was, is and will be those of the exploiters and the exploited. A secondary feature is the massive competition and infighting that is rife in the camp of the exploiters, and in the case at hand, is over the control of Hyderabad between entrenched camp of exploiters and those to seek to replace them. Their internecine war is being fought over the blood and bodies of disenfranchised and frustrated youth, who are being lined up to be the street fighters for the camps. The article also points out that there is an innate tragedy in this as many in the revolutionary camp including those who are fighting for rights of the downtrodden and oppressed have been dovetailed into this useless debate.
What emerges in this is the need for a sound theoretical underpinning without which the movement will be led astray. The theoretical clarification offered by the article will go a long way in bringing back commonsense into the struggle. Furthermore, the call for the Navnirman of the country articulated here and elsewhere in the work of the CGPI will be the keystone for the present and future struggles.
