Two Indias: Rahul Gandhi's Rhetoric and the Grim Reality of Congress-Ruled India
In the course of the ongoing AICC session, Congress 'crown prince' Rahul Gandhi obliquely acknowledged the reality of 'two Indias,' one that is rich and 'moving forward fast' while the other is that of the poor which is in crisis. While being forced to recognize this chasm, Rahul Gandhi however chose to obscure the real role of the ruling class and the UPA Government in particular in creating and deepening this chasm. Instead he asserted that only the Congress party could 'connect and unite' the rich and poor Indias. Citing his experience of travelling all over the country, he claimed that only the poor could take the country forward, and in turn, only PM Manmohan Singh's strategy of 'economic growth' could take the poor forward!
Comrade Ram Naresh Ram Will Always Remain Alive in Ours Hearts
CPI(ML)'s senior-most leader and architect of the people's revolutionary struggles led by the CPI(ML) in Bhojpur, Comrade Ram Naresh Ram (Paras ji) passed away on 26 October 2010 at the age of 86. He was one of the founders of the revolutionary CPI(ML) current in the communist movement in Bihar. With his demise, a glorious chapter in the history of post-independence revolutionary struggles comes to an end. Comrade Ram Naresh Ram was born in 1924, in Ekwari village in the Sahar block of Shahabad district (now called Bhojpur). As an 18-year-old he participated in the Quit India movement of 1942 and thus began his political career with the freedom struggle. Some years later he entered the communist movement and joined the peasant movement. The voice of the peasant insurgency of Telengana touched him and in 1948, he participated in a campaign to collect funds in support of that movement. In 1951 he became a member of the Communist Party of India and in 1952-54, he was one of the leaders of the CPI-led peasants' struggle against hike in the canal irrigation rate by the Bihar Government.
