Oppose Rampant Commercialisation and Subtle communalization of Education

Statement:

    The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) announced by the Ministry of Human Resource Development sets itself the goal of completing the unfinished agenda of its predecessors – the New Education Policy 1986 and as amended in 1992.

    The NEP 1986 envisaged the gradual withdrawal of the state from the responsibility of providing education and replacing it with the private market forces. It also envisaged the stratification of children into ‘gifted’, ‘affordable’ and ‘vulnerable’ sections in the name of a three tier system. This goal of NEP1986 was basically achieved in the primary and secondary education and to a large extent in higher education. The NEP 2020 is committed itself to complete this process of privatization.

    The NEP 2020 made usual exercise in numbers to dish out the formula of 5+3+3+4 and merged together primary and secondary education spanning age from 3 to 18 years. It is full of lofty ideals and pious wishes, of course with riders. Some of these are universalization from the age of 3 to Class 10. Mother tongue as the medium of instruction, new curriculum to include 21st century skills from Class 6, offering teaching in Sanskrit, Pali and Paakrut languages and learning foreign languages and so on and on. Almost all of them are mere repetition from the earlier policies, but failed in implementation during the last seven decades. The sincerity of their implementation is questionable given the instance of mother tongue as medium of instruction which has the rider “wherever possible”. This will only ratify the continuation of English as medium of instruction wherever it is in vogue.

    The process of privatizing higher education is particularly emphasized in the NEP 2020. Some of them are: multidisciplinary universities and higher education institution clusters; rationalisatiion of about 50,000 colleges into 15,000 and closure of those having less than 3000 students; upgradation of single subject institutions like IIT, IIM, IIIT etc to multidisciplinary ones; allowing foreign institutions to open campus in India; merger of UGC and AICTE to form Higher education Regulatory Council, which will have less regulatory power and more of licensing authority.

    In practice, these proposals for higher education exacerbate disparities between the states and regions and social and economic inequalities. The NEP 2020 agrees that education is a public good and profiteering should be controlled. Some fee regulations exist in certain states, but they are unable to curtail profit making. The proposed upgraded colleges will have free hand not only in deciding syllabus and conducting exams and issuing degrees but also in deciding fee structure. It also envisages philanthropic donations to be allowed for universities and HE clusters. It is every body’s knowledge the education is the biggest commercial activity with highest margins of profits with lowest investment in India today.

    The NEP 2020pledged not to compromise on financial aid to students in the form of stipend and scholarships and committed to provide energy rich food with morning breakfast in addition to the existing mid-day meals. All these ambitious looking proposals are not going to be realized in implementation. The NEP 2020 proposed to raise the expenditure on education to 6% from existing 4.45% of GDP and aims to raise total (Centre+States) public expenditure on education from 10 to 20% of whole public expenditure. Such an outlay for education was recommended long back in 1950s but never reached to that level at any time in the past.

    On the pretext of Covid-19 the BJP government by-passed the Parliament without placing such an important policy and infringed upon the domain of states in formulating the educational policy according to their local needs conditions. The highhandedness of the Narendra Modi’s government can be seen in its claim that it had extensive consultation with MPs from six southern states and Odisha, while there are 29 states and UTs and corresponding governments.

    The Central Committee of CPI (ML) calls upon the people to oppose the rampant commercialization of education at all levels and subtle meddling of curriculum to give a communal tinge and struggle for a democratic, egalitarian and scientific education.

                     With revolutionary greetings,

Expressing condolences to the army personnel died in border clashes, The border tensions are result of the expansionist ambitions

Statement : 

   The country means not the soil, but the people who toil, produce wealth and create culture on the soil. The national sentiments of the people should not be transformed into national chauvinism. Depicting the neighboring countries as demons should not be equated with patriotism. The BJP that raised the curtain of Hindu communalism has been raising the curtain of national chauvinism. China is trying to expand its dominance. The people of both countries are observing these developments with keen eyes. The leadership of Indian big bourgeoisie had thrown the five principles of peaceful co-existence (Panch sheel) to winds and abandoned the policy of non-alignment and acted in the interests of imperialism as early as 1950s. It acted in favour of US imperialist desire to gain a grip over South Asia. It extended the facility of refueling US war planes that were engaged in suppressing the national liberation movements in Vietnam, Laos and Kampuchea. Even it sent an Indian actress to participate in programmes that entertain American soldiers. These had exposed the hollowness of India's non-aligned posture. In 1962,  large sections of CPI who later organized themselves into CPI (M) appealed that India and China should resolve the border dispute by peaceful means of negotiations. The then government detained 1600 leaders the section of CPI, branding them as pro-China and accusing them that they did not support India's military actions and not branded China as the aggressor. As  Communists with international orientation and responsibility, these Comrades acted correctly at that time.

   By 1960, the US imperialism was pursuing the neo-colonial policy of aggression, bully, and threat and cajole. It resorted to many conspiracies to degrade the socialist states into capitalist ones. There were some leaders in Soviet Russia who favoured capitalism. As it could not find such leaders in China at that time, US imperialism used the method of bullying it into submission. This was the root cause for the border clashes of that time. The Defence of India Act became a tool for the neo colonial exploitation of imperialism. The government of big bourgeois class branded the patriots as traitors; asked the toiling masses to scarify for the country and exhorted the working class to work more without demands and strikes. Thus the "nationalist, socialist and peace loving' Nehru government got acclaims from the comprador bourgeoisie and US imperialism. Some of the socialists and communists believed Nehru as a friend. But it proved to be an illusion. This had stunned many intellectuals and democrats. During the later decades, though tensions arose at India-Pakistan and India-China borders, they used to be defused by negotiations.

    The then government of China was deeply engaged in the task of building socialism. It waged ideological struggle against the communist parties of certain countries that were  distorting the socialist ideals and the principles of Communism. Precisely at this juncture of time, the border clashes occurred between India and China. Talks were held between the Indian Prime Minister Nehru and Chinese Prime Minister Chou en Lai. The toiling people and progressive intellectuals hoped that the border disputes could be resolved through bilateral negotiations and friendship between India and China will be strengthened. But the forward policy of Nehru led the country into an atmosphere of war. As the then foreign minister Krishna Menon tried hard, but in vain, to establish friendship between the two countries. Later he was forced to resign from the cabinet. 

    After Modi came to power at the Centre, Ms.Sushma Swaraj appeared to have tried for friendly relations with the Chinese government. Many dignitaries travelled between Beijing and New Delhi. After Modi came to power for a second term, the Home Minister had indulged in the talk like liberating Pak- occupied Kashmir and it only was meant to rake up national chauvinism. The bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir into Kashmir and Ladakh had divided the people of the state into Hindu majority and Muslim majority areas. This meant to peg a wedge and deeply divide the people on communal lines and to strike a blow on the unity achieved by the people through generations of toil and living.

      Today's China is not that of Mao's and Chou en Lai's time. It is now competing with the US and other imperialist powers for a share in the market. The commodities produced by the Chinese people who have the tradition of hard work and discipline developed in the course of building socialism came to be widely accepted in the world. India also is importing Chinese goods. The US tried to contain China by imposing higher tariffs on imports from China which led to retaliatory measures by China. This triggered trade war between the two. They have set on a course of head on collision in their scramble for markets. Trump and Jin Ping have not stopped at this.

      The US imperialism is striving to retain its dominant position in the Asia-Pacific region. It entered into strategic alliance with Japan, Australia and India and is roping New Zealand, Philippines and South Korea into this fold in a bid to isolate China. It upgraded the status of India in its military alliance NATO, and is strengthening its military relations with India. ON ITS PART China is expanding economically and militarily into the South China Sea, Myanmar, Bangla Desh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Iran. It is extending financial and technical aid as well as constructing ports in these countries which are said to be used as naval bases also. It is constructing roads and buildings along the border with India. China may argue that these are defensive measures in the face of assault from the US. But is it not a part of their completion to expand their markets?

     Has India fallen behind in this respect? Or has it also started its preparations for it or not? As per the latest news reports, India is also constructing roads and buildings along the Line of Actual Control. Defending our borders is commendable. It is not made public how Santosh and other army men had died and how non-armed conflict occurred. ("may be' military secrets) Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders have been stressing on these questions. But they too are not sharing the information if they have any with the people. They are asking only one question -has China crossed into Indian Territory or not. As part of the contradictions among the ruling classes who are in the service of US imperialism, they are trying to prove themselves as more patriotic than the other.

    As the Communist Revolutionaries we are asking the government: Cannot we stand independently in the economic and cultural systems? Or must we remain as mere pawns in the scramble for markets going on among the world powers? Cannot we act independently without joining any military alliance and without acting in favour of one power? Cannot we develop friendly relations with our neighbors on our own? Cannot we resolve border disputes through peaceful negotiations? The talks between the military officials of both countries and maintaining agreed distance from the LAC are only temporary measures; yet commendable measures.

    Indian people want peace and friendly relations with the people of neighboring countries; not armed conflicts or wars. The relations between India and China had a long history. Hu yen sang and Pha Hiyan praised India. Chinese people accepted Buddhism that flourished in India. We fondly accepted silk and printing technique from China. The peasants of India and China had a rich culture of toil that cultivated vast tracts of lands sustainably over centuries. Both the people are against occupation and war. They want to live a self-sufficient and independent life. The border conflict will not be able and must not be allowed to break the friendship between the people of India and China.                                                                                                              

                                                                                                                          Viswam

Lockdown - Unlock - Let them die!

    The response of Narendra Modi's government to the Corona virus crisis appears haphazard, but has sinister motive. The lockdown was clamped abruptly without any early warning for the people to get themselves prepared. Though first corona case registered on January 20, it kept open all the doors for the entry of virus for about 60 days, during which time it maintained covid-19 is not a problem for India despite the warnings from the WHO. It is a standard practice during the breakdown of an epidemic to clamp lockdown of the affected areas, followed by aggressive testing, isolation and treatment. The lockdown meant for gaining time to prepare the administrative and medical systems to deal with the epidemic. If it were extended for a long time, it would be counter-productive. It is not a panacea. The sudden imposition of lockdown without proper planning and without follow up measures had not helped in containing the virus.

    The geographical spread of Corona virus and its severity has concentrated around four metropolitan cities - Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad and Chennai and later spread to metros like Benguluru, Pune, Hyderabad and then to other cities. This clearly indicates the entry of virus and the failure of the government to contain it in initial stages.

    The government spokesmen time and again claimed “The original purpose of the lockdowns was to delay the spike so we can put health services and systems in place, so we are able handle the spike [when it comes]…That objective, to a large extent, has been met.” News reports such as those titled “Corpses in Hallways, Patients on Floor as Virus Overwhelms Mumbai,” hardly instill confidence in those preparations during the lockdown period. It is obvious that complimentary measures have not been taken fully to prepare the people for when the lockdown is finally lifted.

    Narendra Modi addressed the country five times. Every time he exhorted the people to do the tasks given by him - observing janata curfew, clapping and clanging the utensils, turn off lights and come out into balconies with lighted candles. But he did not tried to tell the people what the government is going to do to relieve them from the situation resulted from his government's mishandling of Corona virus pandemic. The grandiose announcements over five days like the serial episodes of a soap opera had not offered anything substantial for the people who are facing hunger and lack of job.

    Modi's lockdown has been disastrous for the overwhelming part of the populace, most of the workforce that is employed in the informal economy. So, continuing the lockdown in the way it was imposed by the Indian government appears to have no sense. In fact the implementation, and now the lifting, are both largely ill-thought-out exercises and just mimicked those of imperialist powers.

    To cover up this failure, the government led by Modi adopted anti-China rhetoric unleashed in the West Europe and North America by the imperialist powers that China wantonly spread the virus from its laboratories. It focused on the congregation of Tablighi Jamat at Nizammuddine as an epicenter of corona spread in India and tried to rake up anti-Muslim hatred to divert the peoples attention. Yet it was not able to dupe the people and the people have seen the real play through these smoke screens.

    Though the pandemic came handy for the Modi to hide the already set in economic crisis in the country and to blame corona for all the ills of economy, during the four phases of lockdown it became clear that deaths due to starvation would surpass many times than those caused by the Corona virus. Then the leaders in government, including the PM, and media began to engage themselves in spreading the canard of inevitability of living with corona. With this plea, the really failed lockdown was lifted.

Learning to live with corona indicts the failure of every claim made by the Modi's government that it would protect the life and livelihoods of the people. The very arguments, borrowed from the west, tantamount to asking every individual to behave with utmost responsibility if he wants protection from corona and wants to live. This is nothing but individualizing the responsibility that has to be discharged by the community and its organizations, in the present case the state and central governments. In other words, it stood by the side of neo-Malthusians allowing the people to suffer from corona, economic deprivation and exploitation; that is, let them die.

    Modi and His government allowed the spread corona virus and used it: to grab all powers from the state governments; to implement imperialist dictated so-called reforms in agricultural and labour fronts; and to cover up the crisis that already set in with the guise of covid-19 spread and then throw the burden of crisis on the backs of people.

    Such a brazenly anti-people policies always couples with severe repression on people and their organizations; suppression of democratic rights and erasure of democratic values. See how Modi-Shah duo's move in this direction. Amulya Leona, still in her teens, has been in jail for three months now, charged with sedition and other serious crimes for simply shouting ‘Long Live Pakistan’ and ‘Long Live India’ from the stage of a public event in Bangalore. In many parts of India today, the right of the people to criticise their leaders no longer exists. The police in Madhya Pradesh registered a criminal case against a journalist for referring to the prime minister as a ‘gappu’, or braggart. In Agra, a man who called the Uttar Pradesh chief minister a ‘dog’ has been charged with sedition. A young photographer in Kashmir was threatened with arrest under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act as a terrorist for a photograph she posted on Instagram in 2018. In Andhra Pradesh, a woman who asked a series of embarrassing questions about the recent industrial accident in Vishakapatnam was arrested by the police. The purpose these ‘individual’ cases serve is to scare others into silence. The amended UAPA has also given home minister Amit Shah the power to designate any individual as a “terrorist” without a trial or even the filing of charges. Forty five years after the imposition of Emergency by Indira Gandhi, the leaders of BJP continue to claim that they fought against the Emergency and restored democratic values. Contrary to these claims, Modi's government turned a genuine health emergency into a political emergency. Here various political parties of ruling classes are functioning normally - from horse trading in Rajasthan to mud-slinging and trading charges, while maintaining silence over the problems faced by people and alternative proposals. At the same time, the revolutionary and left parties as well as organizations that are working for the people are not allowed to function.

    With the threat of corona virus still in the air, citizens would be in a state of panic, is the expectation of Modi government. It hoped that it can effectively rush through all the anti-people policies without fear of collective action from various sections of people. Yet the people of India have shown their mettle; various sections of them have began struggle against these policies. It is the bounden duty of the communist revolutionaries and democratic and patriotic forces to lead and strengthen these struggles. Indian economy is in a deep crisis accentuated by the Covid-19. The great challenge it posed before the country is to restore the lost jobs and create newer ones. While most of the economists advised the government to spend more to enhance demand, the government took the other way. It refused to spend more and resorted to attract more foreign investment and integrate more with global supply chains, ironically in the name of aatma nirbhar. This strategy, being implemented for the past four decades, will lead to further foreign takeover of Indian economy, pillage of national wealth and destruction of peasants, small industries and small businesses.

    The only path that leads the economy out of crisis is to address the basic needs of the people immediately. The government should distribute foodgrains to each and every family to relieve them from hunger. This is possible as there are substantial stocks of foodgrains with the government agencies.

    Next is to regain the lost jobs. Instead of show piece schemes like Garib Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan, the allocations for MNREGA should be increased so as to create employment in the rural areas. As the most of the installed capacity in the industrial sector is lying idle, they should be encouraged to restart production. For this, there is no need for fresh investment and savings from low oil rates can be used to incentivize production. These two measures in combination would raise the incomes of people and thus pushes the demand up and creates internal market.To sustain the internal market, structural changes in the existing system should be taken up. Instead of wooing the foreign investment and encouraging the growth of service sector, the manufacturing sector should be revived. More sustainable growth of the economy could be achieved only through the distribution of land to the tiller and coordinated development of agriculture and industry. There is no other way or short cuts to revive the economy with peoples perspective. The communist revolutionaries, democratic and patriatic forces should demand for such path to development.

REVOLUTIONARY TRIBUTES TO COMRADE GANANAATH PATHRO!

    

    The news of martyrdom of Comrade Gananaath Pathro on 6th June 2020 reached me a little late. I am disturbed very much by the death of that comrade. I am extending my revolutionary tributes to him. I express heartfelt sympathy towards the life partner of Comrade GP Ms.Safaali and his family members. As there is lack of transport facility due to corona I failed to meet his bereaved family members. Comrade GP and I worked in different committees for 40 years. When he was the Orissa state committee secretary I worked along with him in Malkangiri and Koraput areas. In the revolutionary movement my affinity with him was great.

    Comrade GP belongs to Baleswar district in Orissa. Though born in a very poor family he  completed his M.Sc in Chemistry. As an employee he came from one corner of the state to another corner and joined as a lecturer in Parlakamidi college. As he had the influence of communist politics right from his student days, he was very much influenced by the girijan peasant movement in Srikakulam area. So he resigned to his job and participated in the struggles at Uddanam area. For some time he worked as a squad member also. In this process he assessed the different streams of revolutionary politics and in 1973 he joined in the organization led by Comrade TN. He became a member of AOBRC and Comrade Viswam was then its secretary .  Then onwards he worked under the state committee.

    Comrade Purushotham Pali, the iron man of Adivasis of Koraput also was member of this regional committee and he used to have connections with Adivasis in Malkangiri and Sunki areas. The party sent me to Orissa to work as an organizer with Comrade Purushotham Pali. Orissa State Committee was formed and Com. GP was the secretary that committee.

    We used to have organizational and agitational connections with the state committee members of Orissa viz Comrades Vijay Upadhyay, Susheel Roy and GP. Malkangiri area  committee which is under AOBRC used to take help and cooperation of Com. GP for the forming of mass organizations.

    Comrade GP was arrested in 1985 in Rourkela.  Soon after his release from the jail, Com. GP under the direction of the central committee actively participated in the movement against the launching of a nuclear missile centre at Baliapal. The agitation was so effective that the government withdrew its decision.  Com. Bhavani participated in this agitation very actively.

    Comrade Purushotham Pali breathed his last with heart attack in 1988. After that on the question of local and non-local feelings created by some of the state committee members, Comrade GP differed with them.

    There was serious attempt to build Girijan movement in the Parvathipuram area under the leadership of Raithu Coolie Sangham since 1992. Anti arrack agitation also is a part and parcel of this movement. The effect of anti arrack agitation extended to the villages in Orissa adjacent to Parvathipuram. Thousands of adivasi people participated in this movement. In the midst of repression and disturbances we started Chashi Mulia Adivasi Sangh.

    Under the leadership of this sangh thousands of people were organized against forest officers and pettandars oppression in Bandugaon, Narayana patna areas of Korapurt district. In this connection, Comrade GP attended the public meetings at Vizayanagaram District Raithu Coolie Sangh and in Bandugaon, Narayanapatna areas also.

    Comrade GP opened the office building of Raithu Coolie Sangh constructed under its leadership at Parvathipuram on 7th May 2003. During the election time he participated in several public meetings and spoke on different contemporary problems. As an extension to this he attended in the activities of Chashi Mulia Adivasi Sangh. We constructed a Martyrs Column at Srikakulam.   Which was suppose to be inaugurated by Com. Kanu Sanyal. District police prohibited this meeting which will be held on May 27th of 1998. Comrade GP after words opened it in September 1999. All these things show the affinity and political connection between us and Comrade GP.

    In 2008 we had differences with Comrade GP on the political line to be taken in regard to the land problem of Narayanapatna, as a part and parcel of the movement that was going on in Bandugaon and Narayanapatna areas of Koraput district. There were contradictions between Adivasis and Paidies of Narayanapatna. As a class Paidies were poor. But Paidies (SC) on behalf of Sondis and the Shavukars used to attack the Adivasis, threaten them and extract paddy from them. In order to disintegrate the Chashi Mulia Adivasi Sangh, sondies and the Shavukars conspired together to make use of the differences between Paidies and Adivasis to their advantage. In spite of the atrocities of Paidies on Adivasis, we wanted to unite them and Comrade GP differed with this line. While condemning the attacks on Adivasis by Paidies, the Chashi Mulia Adivasi Sangh at the same time decided to unite them in the struggle for land. But Comrade GP was against this. The Orissa state committee members Com. Srikanth, Com. Basu and some other state committee members are also not accepted GP’s line. This is the main difference between Comrade GP and us. Instead of agitation on the basis of Narayanapatna land issue this difference led to many other problems and as a result of it we lost physically valuable comrades. The police killed Comrade Singanna in this agitation. We lost Pinninti Suresh. After that Maoist party murdered Comrade Arjun. Several comrades were imprisoned under so many false cases. Comrade GP was also imprisoned, Chashi Mulia Adivasi Sangh widely agitated against his arrest.

    As correct line was not implemented in regard to land issue we had to face different problems. The party tried in vain to solve these problems and make advance the movement. As the correct line was not implemented we faced several problems. All these memories and incidents came to my mind as soon as I heard the death news of Comrade GP.

    Lastly I remember how Comrade GP got a brain stroke in a meeting at Nellore in 2002. He was out of danger as immediate treatment was given. The doctors and comrades saved his life.

    Comrade GP had maintained close relations with Comrade Viswam and other state committee members of Andhra Pradesh. On behalf of the A.P. state committee we remember Comrade GP. I had close contact with the family members of Comrade GP. His life partner Comrade Safaali, thier eldest daughter Roja, the youngest daughter Arunatara, and the son Toofan are all close to me.

    His sister greatly co-operated Comrade GP. She extended a helping hand to his family. Comrade Safaali belongs to Rajghat village in Baleswar district. I had affectionate relations with that family also. We cannot separate Comrade Safaali from the political life of Comrade GP. She had taken up several responsibilities of the party and at the same time maintained the family with hardship. Once again I extend my red salute to Comrade GP.
