Economic Crisis

Submitted by cgpiadmin on Wed, 01/02/2012 - 18:30

Dear Editor

I am writing in response to the article entitled "This crisis-ridden republic of the bourgeoisie must be replaced by a workers and peasants republic!'' that appeared on the party web-site in January 2012, as the Indian rulers prepare to commemorate the Republic that was proclaimed in 1950 with the adoption of the Constitution of India. This Constitution is the basic framework within which the big Indian capitalists and landlords of that age, and their descendants have continued their rule. As the article points out that power passed from the hands of the British colonialists to the new Indian ruling circles who now rule in the name of the people of India. The article points out that this is a cruel farce since the reality is that the dispensation is one of the rule of a miniscule wealthy minority over a massive powerless and miserable majority. It is also important to note that the instruments of state power are precisely those that were laid down in the 1935 Government of India Act, and that the Constitutent Assembly which drew up the Constitution was not a democratically elected one, and thus the Constitution of India can hardly be considered as one that in any way truly represents the aspirations of the people of that time and even less of the people of today.

The economic system which the 1950 Constitution safeguards is the one that has generated vast discontent across the length and breadth of the country. It is one which indeed pits the haves vs. the havenots. Indeed, the haves are the ones that hold the reign to the sovereign power who wield the instruments of state power, while the havenots are the rest. There are battles raging in every nook and cranny of the country which is based not on this or that difference of opinion, or quibbling over this or that idealogical point of view, but indeed is one that pits those in authority against those whose condition leads to oppose. This giant spectacle is emerging slowly and its contours are sharpening every day.

The times are challenging all those who consider themselves to be communist to come out that say what is what. In this scenario, it is our party that has put forward the slogan that it is the Navnirman of the country that will rid it of the shackles in which it finds itself. Our party has said and is openly saying again that it is only the working class which can meet this need of the hour. I take this opportunity to second this call.

Sincerely,

A. Narayan, Bangalore

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
