While addressing the
Silver Jubilee celebrations of the All India Trade Union
Congress – Trade Union wing of the then undivided
Communist Party-in December 1957 at Iranjalikuda, Chief
Miniser EMS said:
Without the active cooperation of the management and workers,
without pooling together the resources of the state and
private individuals for retaining and expanding the existing
industrial base, without launching new industrial undertakings,
the working class of the state has no redemption.
In the industrial sector the government launched a long
term programme of blending the need for increasing production
with protecting the legitimate interests of the working
class. Two points were stressed to achieve this objective:
co-operation between the management and workers; and encouraging
private investment in the state's industrialisation drive.
party was clear in its perception and level headed in
its execution. The ideas was to allow the private sector
to expand and the capitalist class to grow so that ultimately
production and employment opportunities could be enhanced.
Subsequently the social environment needed for the realisation
of socialism was to be created by organising the working
class and democratising the state administration. This
was exactly what the party envisaged at that point of
time. It was as a first step towards this that Birla was
invited to invest in Kerala and launch the Mavoor Rayons
factory at Calicut.
