  • Statement of the Central Committee of the Communist Ghadar Party of India, 10th January, 2018

    The Republic of India will be 68 years old on 26th January this year. The experience of almost seven decades has revealed that this Republic does not protect the right to livelihood, right to conscience, right to life and other human and democratic rights of all members of society. According to Indian political theory or Raj Dharma, a raja who fails to ensure protection and prosperity for the praja loses his right to rule. Judging on the basis of this principle, the Republic of India has no legitimacy whatsoever.

  • Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 10th January, 2018

    The Communist Ghadar Party of India condemns the brutal attacks on the Dalits. Turning truth on its head, many sections of the monopoly controlled media are blaming the victims for the violence. According to their narrative, those who are raising their voices against continuing caste oppression of dalits are enemies of national unity, while those who attacked the dalits are patriots! The state has banned meetings and rallies of student youth raising their voices against the violence unleashed against dalits accusing them of fomenting caste conflicts!

  • ThumbnailIn December 2017, the Government of Maharashtra took two decisions regarding education which have far reaching consequences. In the first week it declared that it would close down 1314 schools in the state. The Education Minister of Maharashtra justified this decision by saying that since these schools have less than 10 students, as per the Right to Education Act (RTE) provisions, the state has the right to close down such schools! He further shamelessly stated that actually as per the RTE Act, schools with less than 20 students can be closed down, which will mean closure of more than 12000 schools as per the survey conducted in 2009, but since government is concerned about primary education it has decided to shut down only around 3000 schools!

  • On 22nd December, the Jharkhand government announced the ban of the Mazdoor Sangathan Samiti (MSS), a registered trade union that has been in existence for 30 years. The state government invoked Section 16 of the draconian Indian Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1908 (CLAA). Following the ban, 10 office bearers of the organization were charged under Section 17 of the CLAA and arrested the next day. The CLAA empowers the state government to declare an organization “unlawful” if the government in its “opinion” believes that the organization “interferes or has for its objective interference in administration of law and maintenance of law and order or constitutes danger to public peace”.
  • ThumbnailOver 50,000 state transport workers in Tamil Nadu went on a flash strike starting on January 4 after the government refused to meet their demands for payment of their arrears and parity in wage increase with workers of other government departments and state enterprises. The strike began in Chennai and spread to other towns and districts in Tamilnadu. 4th and 5th January witnessed a near total strike with over 90% of buses not operating on their routes. Even after attempts by the government to force contract workers to act as substitutes, the strike remained successful.

  • ThumbnailOn January 26, the Indian state will once again display its armed might to the people of India and the world. On show will be the latest acquisitions of military hardware by the Indian Armed Forces. This is being accompanied by incessant propaganda about the threat to India from foreign powers and the necessity to produce and acquire the most sophisticated arms to combat this threat.

  • The recommendation of Niti Aayog to privatise Air India through “strategic disinvestment” is motivated by the private greed of the monopoly capitalists who control the Indian and global airline industry. Ministers and officials of the Government of India try to justify this decision by presenting various assertions, prejudices and so-called arguments, which are not convincing.

  • Long live the Party

    Sir,

    In the speech of Com. Lal Singh delivered on the occasion of the marking of the 37th anniversary of the founding of our beloved party the CGPI, our General Secretary has taken pains to explain why "Ghadar" is present in our name: as an ever present reminder that our call is that of revolution and no effort should be spared until this goal has been reached.

  • Escalate the struggle against the anti-worker, anti-peasant, anti-social and anti-national offensive of the big bourgeoisie!

    Organise to establish workers’ and peasants’ rule!

    What was the situation in our country 40 years ago, when we took up the task of building such a vanguard party of the working class? It was a time when the system of parliamentary democracy was in deep crisis. The fascist underbelly of the Indian State had been exposed by the declaration of National Emergency in June 1975 and the suspension of democratic rights and civil liberties. Widespread mass protests broke out among the working people and youth of the country.

  • ThumbnailThe Party’s anniversary was celebrated on the 24th-25th December in many cities in the country and abroad, and will be celebrated in more cities over the coming weeks. The Regional Committees organized these meetings. The venues were decorated with red banners hailing the 37th anniversary and 37 red flags lighting up the stage. The speech (published here) of the General Secretary Com. Lal Singh was read out at all the meetings.

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.
