Lenin’s Programme

Lenin’s Programme:

After the success of the Revolution of November 1917, addressing the All Russian Congress of Soviets, Lenin said, “Now we shall march forward in the direction of constructing a new social order”. When he assumed authority he outlined his programme as follows:

(1) Early end of the war for negotiating a peace treaty.

(2) All private land to be nationalized without any compensation.

(3) Factories to be owned by workers.

(4) Capitalists are deprived of their political rights.

(5) Banks to be centralized and nationalized.

(6) Laissez-faire to be abolished.

(7) Production to be controlled by the state.

(8) All independent trading companies are to be compulsorily made members of the syndicate.

Lenin was greatly influenced by the ideas of Marx and wanted to adopt them to the economic and political conditions of Russia before their implementation. Thus a government of peasants and workers came into existence and new personnel was recruited to manage the affairs of the state. To establish the power of the Bolshevik party industries were brought under government control.
