Navnirman of India

The statement of the CC of the CGPI dated 23-1-2016 entitled `On the occasion of Republic Day 2016: Unite, organise and lead the struggle for the Navnirman of the Republic!' in the February 1-15, 2016 issue of MEL is an important piece of reading that has analyzed the key features of the political economy, based on the principles of dialectical materialism and class struggle. It also brings into sharp focus the important questions that face political theory at this time.
It is a fact that India is today an imperialist power, that has aspirations and is succeeding in sitting at the high table of world powers, and is seeking to carve a niche for itself in world affairs, using military power as a key bargaining chip, with the Indian bourgeoisie searching willy nilly for opportunities to spread their influence and bring home the highest rate of profit. Their activities within India also are those of an imperialist power, with the rule of the bourgeoisie under the wrap of representative democracy is fascist rule, that crushes under its jack boots the democratic rights of the working people as well as the national rights of the constituent nations of India.
This is highlighted by the fact that every year, the rulers of India highlight their military might, as if it is the military that provides safety and security, while life experience shows that India is a country where the vast majority of the people have no safety or security. Matters being such as they are, it gives us the chance to bring this issue into sharp focus, which is the question of what is the State and what are its duties? Modern statecraft as well as ancient statecraft did bring up this question from time to time, in India and elsewhere, while the colonial rule negated this question, and merely stated that the role of the state is to maintain conditions of civil society, so that there may be unfettered access to the highest rates of return for capital. The dialectical opposite of this raises its head from time to time, which is why the makers of modern India had to make empty promises of providing 'sukh' and 'raksha' in word, but not in deed, or at other times to provide 'roti, kapda aur makaan', or for that matter 'sabke saath, sab ka vikaas', or from the outset of `wipe the tear off every Indian's eye', which proved to be a cruel hoax and continues to be one.
The reasons for these assertions are very simple. The history of the last nearly 70 years have shown that the Indian economy is one where maximum profits are assured for the biggest industrialists and largest agriculturalists, and poverty, penury and hunger and suffering for the working people and the masses. Coupled with these are the extreme dehumanization of the peasantry, those from the lower end of the wretched caste system, women and other weaker sections of the society. Hand in hand is the denial of rights to the nations that constitute India, while society is divided by the rulers into majority and minority communities and the stoking of strife between sections of society. The garb of democracy is torn asunder by the most draconian laws on the books in any country in the world. These are all continuation of the colonial policies of divide and rule, and of the supremacy of British interests replaced the supremacy of interests of the propertied sections of the country.
Thus the people of India have little to celebrate on the annual occasion of the celebration of Republic Day by the rulers of India. What then is to be done in face of this grim reality? How is a new tomorrow to be secured? This begins with the recognition, so convincingly articulated by the CC in the section in the statement on the 'Program of Navnirman'. This would be based on the reconsitution of India beginning with the reconstitution of the economic system to meet the needs of everyone.
A new voluntary union would be the basis of such a reconstitution, with the power vested in the hands of the people. As the winds gather to demand this on a historically unprecedented scale, the Indian rulers have reoriented their course along a dangerous imperialist course, courting the US, the world's most hated imperialist power, in its quest to rise as a leading imperial power in its own right. This path can only bring disaster to the people of India. Let us be forewarned and take steps to stall this dangerous course. Let us work for the Navnirman of the India.

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.
