‘‘Today if you converse with an unconscious or a helpless worker, he would say, what does it matter to us if someone is a communist or a socialist? Some of them might turn up to be a leader or a minister, may go to parliament, may form government—what do we gain by that? We are workers and will remain workers. So, why should we be involved in such troubles? The main reason behind this apathy is frustration. We have to get rid of such thoughts. Alongside, we have to take lessons from history as to what has been our plight by blindly following the leadership. It is we who have suffered; have the leaders anything to bother?
This is why we will have to clarify our political understanding and enrich ideological realisation while conducting the workers’ movements. Revolution is impossible without a revolutionary theory. Most certainly, the working people will have to have a proper understanding regarding the phase of revolution of our country…. Equipped with teachings from revolutionary movements throughout the world and clarifying own concepts regarding ideological questions, those have to put before the workers. Also, conducting movements one after another along the correct path, revolutionary characters are to be created by generating revolutionary thoughts and ideas among the workers. Revolutionary conscious ness among the workers have to be increased through relentless cultivation and discourses. In this way alone, awakening the revolutionary consciousness and developing the same will be possible.’’
