AIKMS CEC delegation consisting of President Com. V Venkatramaiah, Vice President, Com. JV Chelapathirao, Com. Dattar Singh CEC member from Punjab and Com. Dharampal Singh, CEC member from UP visited Mandsaur district in Madhya Pradhesh on June 21, 2017. The team visited 7 villages – Pipliya Chonpet, Badkerapant, Pipliya Mandi, Richa, Buda, Chilo Pipliya and Tekaravad and talked to a wide cross section of peasants.
The delegation also met the families of the martyrs Abhishek, Dinesh Patidar in Badkerapant, Kanhaiyalal Patidar in Chilo Pipliya and Poonam Chand at Tekaravad, paid homage and consoled the families. In Richa village it met Ram Singh and Joginder Singh who were seriously injured in the police firing.
The team concluded that peasants of this area are facing serious economic crises. The immediate cause of unrest was rapid and drastic fall of prices of all agricultural produce to just half or one fourth of its earlier price. With input costs increasing year after year, the peasants have become deeply indebted. For this reason suicides of farmers also are continuing.
Instead of solving these problems, the govt of Shivraj Singh Chauhan allowed a section of goons and local businessmen to attack the peacefully protesting farmers and then, when the farmers tried to intensify their agitation the police fired straight on their bodies with the intention to kill.… Read More
Faced with increasing disillusionment of the people of West Bengal with TMC rule, Mamata Bannerjee is seeking to whip up Bengali chauvinism through unleashing severe repression on Gorkhaland activists, particularly Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha. Mamata Bannerjee Govt.’s decision to make learning of Bengali compulsory in the Hill areas has caused serious resentment among Nepali speaking people of Gorkhaland areas and has revived the agitation for separate state of Gorkhaland. CPI(ML)-New Democracy strongly condemns the repression being let loose by TMC Govt., use of a large number of police forces & deployment of Army to crush this movement and GJM. CPI(ML)-New Democracy supports demand of people of Hill areas for separate state of Gorkhaland.
Demand for Gorkhaland is a very old and democratic demand. CPI(ML)-New Democracy has been supporting this demand. However, agitation for this demand has often led to half-baked compromises resulting in Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council (DGHC) after GNLF agitation led by Subhash Ghising and in Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) after GJM agitation led by Bimal Gurung. In 2013 also there was months long agitation for Gorkhaland after decision to form separate state of Telengana was announced. Every time people of hill areas have agitated for the demand, have endured hardships and made sacrifices but the agitations have not been taken to achievement of separate state.… Read More
On 26th June 1975, Mrs. Indira Gandhi Govt. had launched a ferocious attack on the democratic rights of the people by imposing Emergency. Mrs. Gandhi sought to perpetuate her rule in the face of rising struggles of the people and increasing dissensions among the ruling classes. Every democratic institution was trampled underfoot and people’s rights were completely negated.
Now 42 years later, Indian people are again faced with the danger of fascist rule over the country this time under the slogan of Hindutva. RSS-BJP ruling at the Centre have not only packed the state institutions with their own people, they are subverting different state institutions utilizing their parliamentary majority. RSS-BJP rule signifies the most brutal attack on the people of the country in the service of imperialists and big capitalist and big landlord classes subservient to imperialism. To camouflage their anti-national acts, RSS-BJP are bent on intensifying their drive to divide the people on communal lines and intensifying attacks against tribals, dalits, women and oppressed castes besides minorities. They are intensifying militarization of state machinery and are unleashing jingoism. RSS is trying to whip up pseudo-nationalism to misdirect the people’s rising anger and crush the people’s struggles.
RSS-BJP are intensifying suppression of communist revolutionary movement deploying more and more security forces.… Read More
A prairie fire that erupted in Naxlbari engulfed the whole country. Peasants took up arms in Naxalbari, showed the way to the Indian people for their liberation. It made a complete break with revisionism and neo-revisionism.
To mark the 50th anniversary of that historic event, Punjab State Committee of CPI(M-L) New Democracy took initiative to unite all the communist revolutionary forces to mark this occasion. Five organizations met and discussed the issue. Differences arose as CPRCI(ML) was not in favour of holding any open programme and was in favour of joint publications and small meetings. Other four organization decided to go ahead with the programme and hold a big mass meeting and Rally in Ludhiana. But later on CPI(MLM) withdrew from it saying that this is the issue where maximum programme is to be taken to the masses and they felt constrained in this joint platform. So the three organizations i.e. CPI(ML)ND, Lok Sangram Manch and Inqlabi Lok Morcha decided to hold the programme. A joint poster and a leaflet were issued. Seminars, meetings were held at various places and hundreds of villages. Memorial meetings were held in the villages of some of the martyrs of the Naxlbari movement.
On twenty fifth of May thousands of people – workers, peasants, students, youth and middle class people, men and women thronged the grain market of Gill road, Ludhiana with great enthusiasm.… Read More
