Murderers of Pehlu Khan must not be allowed to escape Justice

CID-CB of Rajasthan has exonerated the six accused of the murder of dairy owner of Haryana, Pehlu Khan and injuring his relatives. Acting under the pressure of RSS-BJP Govt. of Rajasthan, Rajasthan police has taken this unprecedented step of removing their names from the FIR though these six were named in the dying declaration of Pehlu Khan and in the account of eye-witnesses who were also targeted in the attack. This shows that RSS and its affiliates will go to any extent to protect the culprits of these murders, the cow vigilante groups.

CID-CB is allegedly relying on the statements of employees of Rath Gaushala, situated nearly 4 km from the site of the attack, to exonerate the accused. This is hardly the type of evidence which can counter the dying declaration and eye-witness accounts and that too at the stage of investigation. This is a brazen subversion of justice and shows how far the police and administrative machinery has been infiltrated and subverted by the Hindutva forces.

The incident clearly shows that the state Govt. and the police & administrative machinery will ensure that accused are not even tried let alone be convicted. It also shows that the attacks by these “Gau Rakshaks” are neither spontaneous reactions nor being indulged in by isolated bands but are part of a well orchestrated conspiracy by the Hindutva forces led by RSS currently ruling in the country and in many states.… Read More

Gauri Lankesh : Strong in Life, Stronger in Death

The more they kill to silence, the more people raise their voice in protest. RSS-BJP’s plan to intimidate the intellectuals into silence through murderous attacks, is forcing more and more people to come out to protest. A sea of humanity marched in Bengaluru on September 12 to denounce the murder of fearless journalist Gauri Lankesh, a strident critic of Hindutva brand of politics, its attacks on Muslims and Dalits and a convinced supporter of the movement against oppression and exploitation. She supported the struggle against caste oppression. She supported the struggles waged by communist revolutionaries. She took up the struggle against religious bigotry and persecution of minorities. All these brought her onto the hit list of fascist Hindutva forces. She was gunned down outside her house on September 5th by motor cycle borne killers. This followed the pattern of killing of Narendra Dhabolkar, Govind Pansare and M.M. Kulburgi, all of them strong critics of Hindutva brand of politics of RSS-BJP.

Thousands of people marched in protest in Bengaluru not only denouncing the murder but proclaiming upholding of the ideals for which Gauri Lankesh lived and died. The intellectuals of the country are breaking their silence and came out in large number in protests.… Read More

Down with Ethnic Cleansing of Rohingyas in Myanmar! Suu Kyi must be made to answer for genocide by her Govt.! Indian Govt., deal humanely with this humanitarian crisis in our neighbourhood!

While prosecution of Rohingyas by the Burmese State and Army has evoked worldwide condemnation, the Indian Govt. has issued instructions to identify and deport Rohingyas who have come to India. Nearly 40,000 Rohingyas are in India, about 16,000 of them are documented. This inhuman and insensitive stand of the Indian Govt. has been criticized by the UN Human Rights Commissioner.

Rohingyas are facing a genocide in Myanmar (Burma) where they live in the south west state of Rakhine (along the sea coast and bordering Bangladesh to the west) constituting an overwhelming majority of the inhabitants in the northern part of the state and a majority of the people in the state if those who are forced to flee are taken into account. Myanmar Army and Buddhist gangs patronized by the Army are killing people, raping women and burning whole villages. Myanmar Army is even shooting dead the people who are crossing the border with Bangladesh and has mined the border crossings. The unprecedented scale of violence against Rohingyas has forced nearly one million of them out of Myanmar, nearly 370,000 since August 25, 2017 when the current round of violence against them was unleashed by the Army. The scale of military action against Rohingyas clearly proves that this is aimed at ethnic cleansing.… Read More

Central Committee of Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) – New Democracy strongly condemns the arrest of Com. Madhu, Com. K. Prasad and Com. Y. Shantha Rao on July 26 in Mehboobabad district of Telengana. CPI (ML)-New Democracy also denounces the UAPA slapped against these comrades. Slapping of UAPA is part of attack on the tribals and other forest dwellers in Telengana.

Land which tribals have been cultivating for generations are being occupied by the forest department through police and on the direction of TRS Govt. Huts in which their families are living for decades are being demolished. Tribal women and men are being beaten, arrested and false cases foisted against them. A reign of terror is being let loose on the tribal people and other poor inhabitants of forest areas in Telengana.

Tribals are obviously resisting this blatant and cruel attack on their lands and livelihood. In this they are being supported and led by a number of organizations including CPI (ML) – New Democracy. In the areas of erstwhile districts of Warangal and Khammam, now falling under several districts, CPI (ML) – New Democracy has been supporting and leading tribal resistance to save their land and means of livelihood.… Read More

India-China Border Standoff: Restore Status quo, Resume Immediate Dialogue

Standoff between armies of India and China near Doklam area where Chinese territory butts between Sikkim and Bhutan has created tension in the region and poses a threat to peace. Indian Govt. claims that China is trying to build and extend a road in Doklam area which poses a threat to the security in the region and in particular to chicken neck or Siliguri corridor which links Indian mainland with north-eastern states. Chinese Govt. is claiming that Indian troops have crossed the border and obstructed its activities in Chinese territory. From various accounts reported in the media, Indian troops have entered territory under Chinese control so as to prevent China from building infrastructure in the region which according to Indian Govt. is altering the status quo. Indian Govt. claims to be acting in support of Bhutan. Chinese Govt. and media are saying that there would be no talks with India unless Indian troops withdraw from the area.

Indian Govt. has given differing accounts of the stand-off. Foreign Secretary Mr. Jaishankar and Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mr. Bagley have expressed hope that the issue would be resolved through dialogue. It is also reported that NSA, Mr. Ajit Dobal is travelling to Beijing on the occasion of meeting of NSAs of BRICS countries where he is expected to discuss the issue.… Read More

Oppose GST, Support Struggles against GST and high taxes and Demand Abolition of Indirect Taxes

To increase the tax burden on the people, to favour the corporate big capital over the small enterprenuers and to undermine whatever fiscal rights are granted to the states in the Indian Constitution, RSS-BJP Govt. has launched Good & Services Tax (GST) from July 1, 2017. GST has long been demanded by imperialist capital and has been on the wish list of Indian corporate. It represents one of the most cruel attacks on the people and the rights of the states.

Touted as the reform of indirect taxation in the country, GST has three types and several slabs. Besides several items like petroleum products and alcohol have been kept out of the purview of GST so that high taxes on them do not figure in the GST tax rates. Moreover some of the indirect taxes will still continue to be levied by different authorities.

GST would greatly increase the burden of indirect taxes which are paid by the common people. Already Indian Govt. receives two third of its tax revenue through indirect taxes while indirect taxes constitute only a third of tax revenues of the Govts. of developed capitalist countries. Tax GDP ratio in India compares favourably with these countries largely due to expenditure on social sectors in those countries while this is almost nominal in India.… Read More

Oppose Repression; Support Gorkhaland

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

42 Years of Imposition of Emergency : Intensify Struggle Against Increasing Danger of Fascism

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

ON 50 YEARS OF NAXALBARI : MASSIVE RALLY AT LUDHIANA

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
