Dear Comrades of the Communist Party of India (ML),
The National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) conveys its warm greetings of solidarity to the leadership and membership of the Communist Party of India (ML) on the auspicious occasion of your 9th Party Congress on 2-8 April 2013.
We wish you utmost success in consolidating and expanding your ranks in pursuing the manifold revolutionary tasks in upholding and defending the fundamental interests of the Indian people, fighting against the ever worsening oppression and exploitation by imperialist powers and their local cohorts, and advancing the struggle for the national and social liberation of the Indian people.
We in the National Democratic Front of the Philippines are also waging a revolutionary struggle against US imperialism and the local reactionaries presently led by the Aquino regime. Today, our New People’s Army is celebrating its 44th anniversary. On April 24, 2013 we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the NDFP. We express our heartfelt thanks to you for your message of solidarity on this occasion.
Dear comrades, we wish you a victorious 9th Party Congress! The revolutionary struggle of the Indian people is a very significant part of the worldwide revolutionary struggle against imperialism and for socialism.
Long live the revolutionary struggle for national and social liberation of the Indian people!
Down with imperialism and its local reactionaries!
Long live the solidarity between the Indian people and the Filipino people!
Long live anti-imperialist international solidarity!
