The existing Republic must be replaced


I read with great interest the statement of the CC of the CGPI dated 19th January, 2014 written on the even of the 64th Republic Day of India, which commemorates the adoption of the Constitution in 1950.  This statement is necessary reading for anybody who wishes to understand the basic political structure of modern day India.  The statement begins by summing up the situation, which in a nut shell, is one where the majority of the population of India finds itself in a deeply unsatisfied condition.  This has to do with the strangulation of all sectors of the economy by the big bourgeoisie, which has manifested itself in atrocious conditions of life for the majority of the people, price rise, job insecurity, insecurity for the peasantry and tribal peoples, in short a grim present and future.  The statement points out that it is not as if this is being accepted by the people of the country, but there is a widespread protest across the length and breadth of the country.  In short ``The toiling majority of people are protesting the fact that the economic system does not fulfill their claims.  They are angry that the political system of representative democracy does not represent their interests.’’

Against this background, there are widespread preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, with the big bourgeois parties vying with each for other for the priced place of who would be able to intensify the exploitation through the time worn clichés of liberalization and privatization.  It is also being portrayed as if corruption is the only issue that ails the body politic, without paying attention to the fact that corruption is the fellow-traveler of capitalism that has reached its parasitic state already.  Even more so, in India where the present system is a continuation of the old colonial system. Furthermore, a lot of noise about corruption seeks to create a diversion from the central issue which is that of capitalism as an anti-human anachronistic system that is sucking the people dry.  Thus, the conclusion that needs to be drawn at this time is that "The truth is that the problem of exploitation, oppression and exclusion of the majority cannot be solved within the existing framework.’’ In other words, the existing Republic needs to be replaced by a State that"…would be an organ of the working class in alliance with the peasantry and all the hitherto oppressed.  Communists have to lead the working class in rallying all the oppressed to create that new State.’’  Only such a State would be able to guarantee the rights of all.  I would like to congratulation the CC for its principled call on this occasion.

Indian Republic    Feb 16-28 2014    Letters to Editor    Popular Movements    




Parties of the capitalist class claim that there is no
alternative to the program of globalisation,liberalisation
and privatisation. The truth is thatthere 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.
