Condemn the barbaric attack on people by the Gujarat government!

On August 25, 2015, lakhs of youth and their families held a mammoth rally in Ahmedabad, Gujarat demanding access to higher education and government jobs. Far from addressing the legitimate demands of the people, the government of Gujarat carried out a series of provocations to deliberately inflame the situation. This included arresting the leaders of the protest, turning off the lights in the rally ground, and brutally lathi charging and firing upon protestors. The police went on a rampage breaking into the homes of people, beating up men, women and children indiscriminately. In this reign of terror unleashed by the state, it is reported that at least 8 people have lost their lives and hundreds injured. The Central Government has placed Ahmedabad and other cities of the state of Gujarat under the rule of the Army and paramilitary forces, allegedly to maintain “law and order”.  Once more a political problem has been turned into a “law and order problem”.

The Communist Ghadar Party of India condemns the reign of terror unleashed against the people by the Gujarat and Central governments.  

Political and social problems cannot be resolved through repression.  Experience shows that whenever any section of the toiling people takes to the streets to raise their concerns, various parties of the ruling class deliberately portray these concerns in a distorted manner. They inflame passions and set one section of the people against other, while the full might of Indian State is deployed to “restore law and order.

The source of the problems of all sections of the people lies in the capitalist system which cannot provide for all. This system can satisfy only the rapacious greed of Indian and foreign monopoly capitalists. Parties like the BJP and Congress are sworn defenders of the existing political and economic system- the capitalist system that enables the biggest and most powerful and greedy section of the capitalist class to amass immense wealth and continuously deprives the vast majority of people of their just claims and rights. They deliberately set the working people against each other on the basis of religion, caste and region, in order to divide us and perpetuate the rule of the biggest monopolies and the imperialists.

The people of Gujarat must refuse to fall into the trap of this or that party of the rulers. They must defeat the divide and rule tactic of the ruling class by uniting as one in defence of the rights of all. In the present case, it is by upholding the banner "education for all, jobs for all" , and condemning state repression against any section of the people that they will be able to defeat the divisive agenda of the ruling class.

All sections of the people of India are waging a just struggle in defence of their rights, against the attacks of the ruling class and its state. Together, we must wage the struggle with the perspective of establishing a new state with a new economic orientation that will actually guarantee security and prosperity to all.

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.
