Naxals meet in public, govt red faced

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 5, 2007

New Delhi: In 2004 the Peoples War Group (PWG) and the MCC joined to form the Communist Party of India (Maoist).

Recently this group held a meeting on the Bihar-Jharkhand border and distributed tapes of the proceedings to the government and to the press.

The fact that an outlawed organisation can meet in the full public view flies in the face of the Jharkand government, which has been claiming success in deal with Naxalites.

The Ninth Unity Congress of CPI (Maoists) was also a message to the Home Ministry that increased security presence didn’t bother them and this cocky attitude was reflected in the murder of JMM MP Sunil Mahato.

The Union Home Ministry report says that more than 40 people were involved in the murder.

“We get on to this exercise of the areas which are hypersensitive and/or the persons who have taken sound positions. So, we will review,” said Union Home Secretary V K Duggal.

This is not the first time that Jharkhand has been rapped by the Centre for its inability to deal with Naxalite terror.

Jharkhand has not being following the do’s and don’ts laid down by the Centre for Naxalite-affected states.

  • Vacancies in police force were not being filled up
  • Central funds released for support to Naxalite states were not being utilised

The Central team that visited Jharkhand has put to rest that Mahato’s murder was politically motivated.

It was known for some time that the village defence committees were on the hit list of the Maoists.

Better development activities would have helped curb Naxalism in the state but with a wafer thin majority it’s clear that the Madu Koda government has its survival in mind before anything else. IBN

Growing clout of Naxalite movement

The Naxals have been slowly but surely gaining the edge
Naxals have managed to unleash a reign of terror in their ever expanding axis of influence. Late last year TIMES NOW brought to you visuals of highly disciplined, motivated, Naxal women cadre preparing to wage war against the Indian state.

The Naxals in India are not some rag-tag militia but a highly organised fighting force of great offensive capability. That message is of course lost on the government and we know this because of its casual approach toward tackling the Naxal menace. Now as the killing of JMM MP Sunil Mahato shows that omission may prove to be very expensive.

The Naxals have been slowly but surely gaining the edge. In 2003 former Andhra chief minister, N Chandrababu Naidu had a very close shave with death when Naxalites tried to bomb his convoy.

In the same state a few years later Naidu’s party MLA from Ananthpur, Paritala Ravi was not so lucky.

Few can forget the daring offensive by the Maoists in Jehanabad in Bihar last year when over 1000 Naxals laid seige to the prison there freeing over 350 prisoners in a midnight raid.

Instances which time and again have proven the clout that the Naxal movement has in what is called the Red Corridor. A corridor of influence which stretches from Indo-Nepal border in the East, through Bihar and the Naxal-infested states of Jharkhand and Chattisgarh through Orissa into the dense, near impenetrable forests of the Nallamala hills in Andhra Pradesh.

The Naxal insurgency resembles a kind of cancer a cancer that creeps up on an unsuspecting adversary. Let’s not forget it’s also said that if a cancer is detected early it can be eradicated. Lets hope the government acts before its too late. Times Now

Spare a Thought for Ramesh Sori of Bastar…..

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 5, 2007

By Prabhat

Ramesh who looks like a teenager but claims to be 20 yrs old from Sirpur village in Narainpur District
left his elderly parents to earn money so that he can marry the girl chosen by his parents who in turn will
take care of them….

After working hard for nearlly one year fate had something else instore for him.The girl he was suppose to marry
was taken away by the security forces because she is suppose to have attended a meeting organised by the
Naxalites…Does this make sense?Girls and Boys aging between 12 to 18 years are ruthlessly being killed by the
armed forces in the name of naxalites or arrested as Maoist-Sympathiser.

I am sure that these boys and girls don’t even understand for what they are being prosecuted.Is it possible in the remote
areas of Bastar where even Armed forces have no access to differentiate between who is a naxalite or not?Is our Forces
qualified enough to spare the innocent Adivasis?Infact this gives them chance to unleash terror in Tribal villages by raping
women and killing men in the name of naxalism.

Where does this leave thousands of young boys and girls languishing in different jails of Chhattisgarh?Will they be able to
lead a normal life once their innocence is proved?Will the Armed Forces be able to remove the permanent damage done to
the character of these young boys and girls?

Yesterday a Nagpur based NGO told about the horrible conditions of women in Orissa jail.They have been in jail for nearlly
3 years without any trial.Their crime is the usual.Naxal Sympathiser.

Whether its Orissa,Chhattisgarh,Jharkhand the tribals are being systematically being made to disappear under the name
of crime against the state or “Salwa Judum”…….

Mahato’s murder shows Naxal upsurge in J’khand

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 5, 2007

Is the murder of JMM MP Sunil Mahato the first signs of an upsurge in Naxal violence in the states where the cadres are active?

The Union Home Ministry in fact said on Monday that Mahato’s gunning down could have been a retaliatory action against the state government’s recent crackdown on the ultra-left Naxals, also known as CPI (Maoist).

What could give impetus to a renewed bout of naxal violence is their recently concluded ‘Unity Congress (9th Congress) of the CPI (Maoist) – A Turning Point in Indian Revolution’. The Congress was held amid secrecy somewhere near the borders of Jharkhand, Orissa, and Chhattisgarh and was apparently attended by more 100 core naxal cadres from 16 states.

In the post-Congress communiqué to the press, the Maoists had reaffirmed their faith in violence. In the Congress, the organisation of the group was reviewed and changes were put in place.

“It passed resolutions on the important political issues of the day – both international and national – and made the necessary organisaitional changes and elected a new central committee,” the release said, adding that functioning of the new party was reviewed as well. It called upon youth to join ‘armed struggle’ against the government.

The CPI (Maoist) party was formed after the People’s War and the CPI (ML) merged into a single entity in 2004.

A senior police officer from Chhattisgarh, which has seen the bulk of naxal violence in the last two years, said that even though the claims of the Maoists as far as attendance in the congress could be an exaggeration, it is possible that the extreme group could step up violence in new areas.

“The Home Ministry too is gearing up to tackle the menace with a new cell having been set up. The naxals could then resort to more violence as a reaction,” the police officer who did not wish to be named said.

Meawnhile, left parties and CPI (M) and CPI have condemned Mahato’s killing. The CPI said that it was time that Naxals learn from their counterparts in Nepal. CPI (M)’s Prakash Karat said that his party was at the receiving end of naxal violence in West Bengal and asked for more central assistance to states to curb the menace. Hindustan Times

WB may urge the Centre for more forces if necessary

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 5, 2007

Kolkata, March 5 (PTI): A day after the killing of JMM MP Sunil Mahato in neighbouring Jharkhand, West Bengal Government today said it would urge the Centre for more central forces, if necessary, to keep watch on Maoist-affected districts bordering the adjacent state.

“Six companies of central forces are deployed in such problem districts and if required we will urge the Centre for more,” Roy told reporters at the state secretariat.The Maoist menace had neither increased nor decreased in West Bengal in the last two years, he said. To a question, Roy said Maoists were carrying out subversive activites in West Bengal from Jharkhand. The strike called by JMM in Jharkhand during the day had no impact in West Bengal but a general alert was in force. The Hindu

Naxal problem: Govt. to pursue its multi-pronged strategy

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 5, 2007

New Delhi, March 5 (PTI): Union Minister of State for Home Sriprakash Jaiswal Jharkhand today left for Ranchi to assess the situation arising out of the brutal killing of a JMM MP by naxals.

The Centre is keeping a close watch on the situation and the Ministry of Home Affairs has a sought a report from Jharkhand Chief Secretary and Director General of Police on the last night killing of Sunil Mahato, the MP from Jamshedpur.

“The government will continue to pursue its multi-pronged strategy to fight the naxals,” a Home Ministry official said.

The Centre is in constant touch with the Jharkhand government and has assured it all assistance to deal with the situation.

The incident has drawn strong condemnation from President A P J Abdul Kalam, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil.

Mahato, the general secretary of the JMM, two of his bodyguards and a party colleague were shot dead by naxals at Bakuria town, where the MP was invited as a chief guest for a football match. The Hindu
