Without an organized people there is no revolution The organized people are the protagonists who make history and who carry forward the tasks of the national liberation revolution and the struggle for Socialism when they are led by the Party of the working class. We cannot expect a spontaneous reaction of generalized indignation from them, as preached by the petty bourgeoisie and anarchism; nor can we pretend to replace them in their historical tasks. We must prepare them so that their indignation and opposition have the support of a revolutionary program, Socialism. We must learn from them but fundamentally we must educate them based on their own experience of struggle, we must constantly act among them knowing their state of mind and carrying out revolutionary pedagogy, clarifying the political scene. We must provide them with all the organizational instruments so that they can fulfill their mission as the historical protagonists, provide them with a skilled leadership and a union- association structure, councilor or popular front so that they function better. We must strive to organize the majority of the popular sectors from the artists, progressive intellectuals, street vendors and small merchants, students, peasants, workers and the whole social sector from which we can stimulate resistance and channel the indignation and popular orientation towards socialist causes faced with the crises that we are going through. Conclusion and general orientation There are no communists outside the Communist Party, there are no communist members without organization in a cell, without organization in cells there is no organized Communist Party that can lead the struggle of the working class and the working people to change the social structures rotted away by capitalist exploitation and corruption. It is time for us accelerate the pace and apply in a more dynamic manner the Resolutions and Conclusions of the VII National Conference and the Party Program and provide a skilled leadership to the social struggle in Peru. With the Party and the organized People, everything! Without the Party and the organized People nothing! Let us develop the subjective conditions that ensure the popular solution! Let us advance in the organizaional strengthening of the Communist Party! Let us continue with greater effort the task of organizing the working people and popular sectors! CC of the PCP (M-L) March 2018 ™ Dushkal he aasmani nasoon, sultani aahe – Marathi saying (Drought does not happen due to lack of rains, but due to poor governance) Several districts across the country have already affected by drought. Country recieves thre-fourths of rainfall during the south-west mansoon. The Indian Meteorological department (IMD) data shows that there was 9 per cent deficit in rainfall during the season. When seen state wise, deficit in rainfall was more than 90 per cent in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh and 50 per cent in maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra pradesh by the middle of December. About 68 per cent of cropped ares in India is ulnerable to droughts. Of this, 33 per cent of the area recieves less than 750 mm of mean annual rainfall and classified as chronically drought prone area. Another 35 per cent of ares recieves mean annual rainfall betweeen 750 and 1125 mm and is classified as drought prone. January - 2019 Recently IMD removed the word drought from its vocabulary “to do away with or redefine them that are not scientifically precise”. Instead of using drought year and severe drought year, the IMD adopted deficit year and large deficit year. The NDA government released the manual for drought management in 2016 ammending that of 2009. In the 2016 manual, the parameters for declaring an ares as drought hit were made so stringent that the state governments find it more difficult to declare drought hit areas. The five parameters listed in the new manual are: rainfall, sown area, soil moisture. Ground and suface water and remote sensing of crop health. Any four of these five criteria should be fulfilled to declare drought. This does not take into account of different types of droughts and different situation across six meteorological division of the country – the meteorological (deficit rainfall), Hydrological (surface and sub surface water) and agricultural (inadequate soil moisture). If these criteria are followed many droughtsa go unreported. The revenue minister of Karnataka noted that due to changes in the benchmark defining drought situation by the central government, it is not possible to declare nothern Karnataka region as drought hit even as there was deficit rainfall in 13 districts of this region. The Chief Minister of Maharashtra said that the declaration of districts of Marathwada region as drought hit was delayed as a result of stringent parameters. With the new manual the central government washed off its hands put contd. on page 2 7
