MIA: Subjects: India : The Democratic Vanguard - Workers' Party of India




The Democratic Vanguard was a revolutionary Marxist organization formed in 1943 in West Bengal when a group led by Jiban Lal Chattopadhyay broke away from the Radical Democratic Party of the Indian dissident Marxist Manabendra Nath Roy. Adherents of the Democratic Vanguard came together out of dissatisfaction with what they perceived as the non-Marxist development of Roy and his Radical Democratic Party. On June 12, 1960 the Democratic Vanguard became the Workers' Party of India.
