PM should dare to remove ‘Socialism’ from the Preamble

Date: 16 Dec.2012 
Press Release
PM should dare to remove ‘Socialism’ from the Preamble
The Prime Minister is full of a fresh zeal for reforms after winning the battle on FDI in the parliament. He has targeted opponents by saying that they are either ignorant of global realities or are constrained by out-dated ideology like socialism. The word ‘socialism’ is mentioned in the Preamble of the Indian Constitution. Further, the  ‘Directive Principles of the State’ in Part Four of the Constitution can be viewed as guiding manifesto for political parties and governments by helping to establish social and economic equality at the earliest. In his attack on opponents, the PM has therefore attacked the very fundamentals of the Constitution. The PM, who has imposed the dictatorship of neo-liberalism on the country by obeying the dictates of the world bodies like WB, IMF, WTO and MNCs, should dare to propose a bill in the parliament to remove the word socialism from the Preamble and the Directive Principles from the Constitution. The Socialist Party also poses this challenge to the political parties who have supported the FDI in the parliament.  
The Socialist Party would like to tell the PM that he himself is ignorant of global realities. For him the world is confined to the US, an epitome of capitalist neo-imperialism and developed capitalist countries of the Europe. The profit hungry MNCs of these countries have played havoc in the poor countries. The result is enormous violence, insecurity, fear and hunger. In India, lakhs of farmers have committed suicide; several crore people are suffering from hunger and malnutrition; several crores have been displaced as the result of neo-liberal reforms. Not only will the 4 crore retailers and around 25 crores of their family members face its disastrous affects but farmers will also be badly affected by the entry of multinational retail chain giants like Wal-Mart, Carrefour, Tesco etc.
The PM has no concern for this world of poor and hardworking. For him the only reality is the world of the rich. His new push to reforms, in fact, is a push to make the rich richer. However, he paved the way for the poor and hard working masses to commit suicide or die in conditions of hunger and malnutrition.
The Socialist Party has been fighting against the anti-poor and anti-Constitution decision of FDI in retail from the beginning. The party will now strengthen its fight by spreading awareness among retailers and farmers.

Honourable Shri Man Mohan Singh
Prime Minister of India

Respected Sir
A few days ago a newspaper published the shocking news that Rajendra Choudhary, an accused in the Samjhauta Express bomb blast case, has revealed that in October 2006 the right-wing extremists had planned to target Justice Rajinder Sachar.The plan could not be executed because they were on a run after conducting Malegaon blast and lacked resources.  
It is condemnable that till date Justice Sachar has not even been informed about this by the concerned authorities. Over a telephonic conversation with him last evening Justice Sachar wondered why neither he nor the other 6 members of the committee received any official intimation about the threat even after 4 days the news was flashed.
Justice Sachar Committee was formed by the government in March 2005 to present report on the socio-economic-educational conditions of the Muslim population in India. The report was submitted to the government in November 2006 which created a sharp debate in the political and social circles. The BJP/RSS rejected the findings and suggestions of the report outright and is indulging in continuous propaganda against it. With such an anti-position taken on the report, these forces can harm Justice Sachar and the members of the committee after the report is published.
Justice Sachar is a friend, philosopher and guide to the cadres of the Socialist Party who have utmost concern for his security. Therefore we request you to kindly direct the concerned authorities to provide him adequate security with immediate effect.   

With regards

Yours sincerely

Dr. Prem Singh

America is in Congress’s DNA, not India

Date: 22 January 2012
Press Release

At the Jaipur convention Rahul Gandhi’s assertion that the Congress is Mahatama Gandhi’s party and India is in its DNA is hollow and misleading.  The Socialist Party would like to put the record straight regarding this hyperbole and contentious issue. Mahatama Gandhi is too far away for them, the present-day Congress has not remained a Congress even of the Indira Gandhi era. It is a Congress of Sonia Gandhi, Man Mohan Singh and Rahul Gandhi via Rajiv Gandhi. Mahatama Gandhi, at the time of independence, had said that the Congress has served its purpose and should now be disbanded and a new political organisation should be formed for the political purpose. He further suggested that the Congress should be converted into Lok Sewak Sangh to serve the social purpose.
There were forces, communalists on one hand and communists and dalits on the other, who challenge the credentials of the Congress through different arguments. Some time they aligned with the colonial rulers in their denial to the Congress. So it is open to debate whether the Congress of the freedom movement had entire India in its DNA? However, as far as the independence struggle is concerned; the Congress was a pan Indian forum. But there can be no doubt that the present-day Congress has the U.S. in its DNA. It follows the dictates of the U.S., the epitome of neo-imperialism, and flourishes. The statement of Rahul Gandhi would be right if we accept the Americanised India as the one and only truth about the country.  
Congress men celebrated Rahul Gandhi’s speech, as expected, in a sycophantic manner. The mainstream media too projected Rahul Gandhi and his speech in such a manner as if he were really a true statesman who constructs and writes his statements and speeches himself. Everybody knows that he is a protected and projected leader of the Nehru family on whom a big amount of money, earned by the hard-working and honest people of the country, is being spent from the very beginning. It is also known to every body that so far it has been a futile exercise on the part of the Congress. For the Socialist Party, it is a matter of concern that the serious political contemplation and debate, in this neo-liberal era, is replaced by costly spectacles repeatedly organized by political parties and propagated by the media.
The Congress has placed the rich resources of the country to be looted and plundered by the national and multinational corporate houses and companies. Its government is deeply immersed in corruption. The P.M., several Cabinet Ministers, and Chief Ministers face charges of scams of enormous multitude. The result is hunger, malnutrition, unemployment, price-rise, insecurity and farmers’ suicides.
Rahul Gandhi has always been number two in the Congress, after his mother. Therefore his call to bring a change in the Congress party and the policies of the government is old story. It is also old story that Congress leaders clap on every word he utters. This time this tamasha became ‘serious’ when some Congress men wept while listening to Rahul’s  statement that his mother wept before him the earlier evening!
The message by Sonia Gandhi to Rahul that power is nothing but poison has been applauded by Congress men. The message that this poison could be balanced by using power for the apparent wellbeing of people has also been well understood by the masses  who have little option but to keep drinking the poison of hunger, malnutrition, unemployment, price-rise, insecurity and suicides.
The Jaipur conference once again proved that the Congress is a den of sycophants, many of whom do not have any worth of their own to rise on top posts they are holding. They worship the Nehru-Indira Gandhi family as the Congress family with the fervent hope that this would secure for them the ‘cream’ of personal power and gain.
The Socialist Party would like to caution that the Congress and its leaders are not at all concerned about their needs. They, like BJP and other mainstream political parties, are only concerned for the upper and middle class India who has been benefitted by the neo-liberal polices of the last three decades and reflects the U.S. in its DNA.

मंहगे हेलिकॉप्टरों पर देश के धन की बरबादी बंद हो

वीवीआईपी को यात्रा कराने के लिए इटली की अगस्ता वेस्टलैंड कंपनी से 36 सौ करोड़ रुपये के 12  हेलिकॉप्टरों की खरीद के सौदे में कथित रूप से घूस देने का मामला पिछले कई दिनों से मीडिया की सुर्खी बना हुआ है। इस सौदे में घूसखोरी होने की खबर कई महीने पहले की है और इटली में उसकी एक साल से जांच भी चल रही है। लेकिन भारत सरकार की ओर से समय पर समुचित कार्रवाई नहीं हुई। इटली में संबंधित कंपनी के दो बड़े अधिकारियों की गिरफ्तारी होने से मामला काफी उछल गया तो रक्षामंत्री ने सीबीआई जांच के आदेष दिए हैं और इटली की सरकार से पूरे मामले में सूचनाएं और सहयोग मांगा गया है।  हेलिकॉप्टरों की पूरी रकम जमा की जा चुकी है जिसमें 360 करोड़ रुपये की रिष्वत का आरोप है।
हमेषा की तरह जांच कराने और दोषियों को नहीं बख्षने की मांग और दावे विपक्ष और पक्ष की ओर से किए जा रहे हैं। मामला इतना तूल पकड़ चुका है कि सौदा रद्द भी हो सकता है। संसद का बजट सत्र षुरू होने वाला है। लेकिन प्रधानमंत्री और उनकी सरकार को कोई डर या परवाह नहीं है। प्रधानमंत्री हमेषा की तरह आत्मविष्वास से भर कर घोषणा कर चुके हैं कि वे संसद का सामना करने के लिए पूरी तरह तैयार हैं। यानी उनके ऊपर किसी घोटाले का कोई असर नहीं पड़ता।
इस तथाकथित घोटाले पर तीखी बहस के बावजूद किसी भी राजनीतिक पार्टी, नेता, विषेषज्ञ अथवा टिप्पण्ीकार ने यह सवाल नहीं उठाया कि एक गरीब देष में यात्रा के लिए इतने मंहगे हेलीकाॅप्टर क्यों खरीदे जाने चाहिए? सोषलिस्ट पार्टी का सवाल है कि अति विषिष्ट लोग, चाहे वे नेता हों, नौकरषाह हों या सेना के बड़े अधिकारी, साधारण  हेलिकॉप्टर में सफर क्यों नहीं कर सकते? जिस देष में सेना के साधारण सिपाहियों के पास ढंग के जूते और वर्दी न हों, वहां अतिविषिष्ट लोगों के हवाई सफर के लिए 36 सौ करोड़ की भारीभरकम रकम साजसज्जा वाले हेलिकाॅप्टरों पर क्यों खर्च की जानी चाहिए?  शासक वर्ग का यह रवैया सैनिकों और मेहनतकश  जनता दोनों के साथ क्रूर मजाक है।
सोशलिस्ट पार्टी स्पष्ट करना चाहती है कि बाजार और हथियार के बल पर चलने वाली पूंजीवादी व्यवस्था में घूस, घपले और दलाली को कभी रोका नहीं जा सकता। कालाबाजारी और भ्रष्टाचार उसका अनिवार्य  हिस्सा हैं। सोशलिस्ट पार्टी देष की जनता को बताना चाहती है कि 360 करोड़ रुपया जिनकी जेबों में गया है उन लोगों को पकड़ना और सजा देना आसान नहीं है। क्योंकि वे इन हेलिकॉप्टरों  में बैठने वाले अतिविषिष्ट लोगों के साथी-सहयोगी ही हो सकते हैं। पार्टी की मांग है कि तेजी से निष्पक्ष जांच हो, दोषियों को कड़ी सजा मिले, यह सौदा रद्द हो, देष का धन वापस आए और अतिविषिष्ट लोगों के लिए ये मंहगे हेलिकॉप्टरों  नहीं खरीदे जाएं।
