    Respected Chair man, other leaders on this dais dear audience and workers of SDPI.
    Social democratic party of India is gradually fixing it's foots in West Bengal. The party has now come forward with a demand for reservation in Govt Jobs and Higher Education to Muslims because Muslims are the most backward and under privileged community here. SDPI is a party which strives for the strengthening of backward communities without prejudice of religion caste or creed.
    People in West Bengal have got a glorious heritage of strive for freedom, justice and equality. It is not mere a past history. The present generation also has got a sense of struggle for rights and freedom.
    But I think this is the right time to think whether our efforts are in the right path. Am I not correct in saying almost all the political parties of India have deviated from the ideology on which they are built up?
    Along with the rest of the world our nation also has fallen in the hands of capitalism and imperialism.
    Ordinary mass of the nation are now living under the shadow of two threats. Those are poverty and terror.
    On the other hand our government claims that they have gone far ahead in the way of development and war against terrorism.
    Development is nothing other than Capitalism.
    New capitalists have accepted the term ‘development' to cheat the modern society which is very keen about humanity and equality.
    The government highlights a fake statistics of financial growth.
    When they claim economy development, above 85 percent of the population is struggling to meet the two ends of needs of life.
    More than 50 percent are below the poverty line.
    While our nation live on agriculture, the government has ignored that that area completely.
    Amount of government expenditure on agricultural growth is being decreased year by year.
    Agricultural land is forcefully handed over to neo-capitalist agencies for industrialization.
    Special Economic Zones are designed to strengthen the grips of money powers over the laborers and the villagers.
    Actually, our nation has accepted capitalism in the pretext of development.
    None of the so called main stream political parties is raising voice against these anti people attitude of capitalist agencies. In another words, our political parties themselves have become an agency to capture and handover people's rights and belongings to money powers.
    American President Obama is visiting India. He will address Indian Parliament. There is an impression that Obama is gentle and generous. He is in no way less than George Bush.
    In fact our country has thrown away the values of non alliance movement. Virtually it has now become a war ally of America.
    The history of our nation has got a black mark of casteism and communalism. These two evils are not eradicated from the secular democratic India. Instead they have strengthened their influence over all the folds of our society and administration. Hatred and enmity is spread.
    In addition our country has now imported hatred from Israel. The most communal force in the world, Israel, is the closest friend and guide of our country now.
    India started diplomatic relationship with Israel during the year 1992. It was not BJP or Vajpayee who started this unholy tie. It was none other than Mr. Narasimha Rao. He gave two blows to the Indian secular society. One is the demolition of Babri Masjid and the other, opening of the doors of our nation to the evil conspirators of Israel.
    Ever since this relationship mysterious incidents and explosions are taking place continuously in our country. Muslim youths are victimized in these untoward incidents. Later it is clear that some hindutwa fascist forces were behind these attacks. But the black mark over the Indian Muslim society still prevails.
    War against terrorism is American war against Muslims all over the world. Intelligence ties of the country with America and Israel has dragged us into this war. War against terrorism has awarded fear only to our country.
    V L Lenin, the leader of Russian revolution had stated that capitalism will be followed by imperialism. We see his words turning true in India. Capitalism came here in the name ‘development'. Closely following it, imperialism also has set foots here in the name ‘war against terrorism'. Followers of Lenin may be aware of the capitalist forces entered in our country. But they are not coming forward for a total defence. As regards the imperialism, the leftist parties of our country are not ready to realize the imperialist agenda behind the war against terrorism. The reason, I suspect, is prejudice against Islam and Muslims.
    History of our democracy begins with the freedom of the nation. None of the political parties of independent India has tried to teach the values and benefits of democracy to the common mass. Ordinary people of our country are utilized only as vote banks. Power is confined only to the upper class castes. Dalits, tribals and backward communities including Muslims are not only driven away from power, but they are denied of justice, legal rights, and civil rights. Democracy in India was never for a government of people, by people and for people. It was some kind hero worship in the beginning and now only a trade of power by exchange on money.
    Adequate representation in power by various diversities of Indian society is to be ensured for the safety of our democracy. Reservation of seats in legislative bodies and government employment is recommended on this ground. Power class, reluctant to approve this theory is actually endangering our democracy.
    Social Democratic Party of India upholds two slogans. Freedom from hunger, freedom from fear. Threats generated by the neo-capitalist and imperialist forces, which keep hatred towards suppressed class of people, are addressed by these slogans. I invite all those who love the country to line up in this new field of struggle.
    In Bengal Muslims are most backward. Justice Rachinder Sachar has highlighted this fact in his report on the backwardness of Indian Muslims. There are resources among Bengal Muslims. This crowed itself is a forceful weapon. Think about a self upraise. Get rid of the nostalgic thoughts about undivided India. Partition of the nation is no longer an acceptable excuse for your backwardness. Be aware that this is the third generation after the partition. Be aware that political empowerment is an unavoidable step towards survival and development of any community. Be a part of SDPI and take your role in this struggle for survival.
