The public meeting was presided over by Comrades G.Vijaya Kumar, Susheelan and Shanbhu Mahato. Com P.Jaswantha Rao addressed the meeting. In his speech he narrated events that led to October revolution; the importance of it in the sense that it established for the first time in the history of humankind the political power of the exploited classes and showed the way for the emancipation of colonial and semi-colonial countries. It established a socialist society that achieved progress in a short span of three decades surpassing that of capitalist system which took more than two centuries to achieve. The socialist system achieved this along with the eradication of poverty and unemployment which still haunts the capitalist system, thus proving the superiority of socialism as system of human society. He reminded that comrade Lenin could lead the Bolshevik Party and people of Russia in making success of October revolution only through his relentless struggle against all wrong trends both in ideological and political fronts. It was the high political consciousness of the working people of Soviet Union, which was cultivated by the Bolshevik party, that the first socialist society was built in the most backward imperialist country facing subversions and aggressive wars from the Organ of the Central Committee of CPI(ML)
