Condemn the terrorist bomb attack on CRPF jawans in Kashmir

About 50 soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been killed in a suicide car bombing attack in Kashmir on 14th February, 2019.  The attack took place on a heavily guarded highway that serves as a key supply route for troops stationed in the Kashmir valley.

The BJP-led Government has used the occasion of the Interim Budget for 2019-20 to announce two new schemes. A close examination of these schemes shows that their aim is not what is officially stated. Far from addressing the problems affecting workers and peasants, the aim of these schemes is to rob workers further and pacify the peasants by throwing some crumbs from the massive amounts looted from them.

Letters to Editor: Ensuring prosperity for all

I am writing in response to the article entitled 'Only under workers' and peasants' rule can prosperity be provided for all' carried in the Feb. 1-15, 2019 issue of MEL.

It begins by exposing the bogus slogans put forward by various parties of the bourgeoisie at various times, whether it is the 'Development for all' of the BJP or the 'Garibi hatao' of the Congress.

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.
