Workers must wage uncompromising struggle for their demands

Sir,

I thank you for carrying the informative report on the 45th Session of the Indian Labour Conference that took place in Delhi on 17th May, 2013. It is significant that the report has pointed out that nothing concrete came out of the session.  The report has clearly pointed out that demands of the worker’s unions tabulated therein have not been met and neither is there a mechanism for meeting these demands.  It is also instructive and significant that the following points were made by the Prime Minister in his inaugural speech which have been exposed as either lies or worthless:

  • inflation is good for both capitalists and workers,
  • the claim that there is no difference of opinion between capitalists, workers and central government over the implementation of labour laws,
  • on the nature of minimum wages,
  • announcement of a minimum pension of  Rs.1,000/ month ,
  • shelving of discussion on the demands for the abolition of contract labour in work of permanent or perennial nature, payment of wages and benefits to contract workers on part with regular workers, etc..

Thus the article concludes that in a system which guards and protects only the interests of the capitalists and worships the so called market forces, there is little that can or will be achieved by sessions of organizations such as the Indian Labour Conference. The fact is that it is not possible to harmonize the interests of capitalists and workers, and the fact is that the Government is that of the capitalists.

I join the article in echoing the call that "... the situation demands that all communists and activists of the working class wage the resolute uncompromising struggle in defence of the livelihood and rights and unite around the aim of establishing the rule of workers and peasants in place of the rule of the capitalist class".

Election manifesto of a CGPI supported candidate for Lok Sabha

 

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.

Manifesto 2014There 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. However, the working class is being prevented from realizing its potential as the leader of all the exploited, and as the grave-digger of capitalism, by those in the communist movement who are spreading harmful illusions and compromising the class struggle.
