Communists of India oppose the Nuclear Deal between India and America, in the National interest they think, but they also opposed McMahon line that separates India from China. They opposed Quit India Movement and Neta Ji Subhash Chandra Bose in their perception of National interest.

The line drawn by Henry McMahon in 1914 in Simla between Tibet and British India is popularly known as the McMahon line. It is regarded by India as international border while china does not recognize it. China invaded India in 1962 and still has 38000 sq. km of Indian Territory in its possession. Communists are more in tune with the Chinese opinion.

Neta Ji Subhash Chandra Bose - the embodiment of Nationalism and secularism was a great son of India. Yet, the communists did not hesitate to describe him as ‘traitor’ or ‘quisling’ or even ‘Tozo’s dog.’ Tozo was the monarch of Japan. Subhash Bose was awakened to National interest more than any communist in the world. In whose interest did communists abused Neta Ji?

Communists opposed Mahatma Gandhi in 1942 when he wanted the British to Quit India. Recollecting the role of communists in ‘Quit India Movement’ one of the presidents of the district Congress Committee in Kerala, Mr. Chennithala said that communists continue with their ‘history of betrayals’ (The Hindu, On Line Edition, Aug. 10, 2007).

In 1947-48, the newly independent communally surcharged India needed help and support of all sections of society. The communist Party with B.T.Randive as its General Secretary called mass struggle and wanted the government to be thrown out by armed struggle. Vallabh Bhai Patel saw to it that the violent struggle was defeated. The communists of India then accepted the option of electoral politics.

The first elected Government of the communist party of India under Namboodripad was formed in Kerala in 1957. The communist Government taught Engel, Marx and Lenin in Kerala schools disregarding Indian culture, heritage and values. The people of Kerala including Muslim League revolted under the leadership of Pattam Thanu Pillai. The communist attitude pained all democratic socialists including Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru.

The peasant uprising in May 1967 at Naxalbari in Darjeeling in Wes Bengal was led by armed communists based on the thesis of agrarian revolution by eliminating landlords. It has produced Naxalites under different names. Communism and Naxalism have only a thin line of demarcation.

During the days of socialist economy, the Communists had meticulously carved out a decisive role for themselves in educational, economic and cultural policies of the Government of India. Manmohan Singh as Finance Minister in the Narsimha Rao government adopted free economy and made the communist philosophy irrelevant to modern India. Manmohan Singh in the Communist perception is not working in the National interest.
