VISAKHAPATNAM: While the battle between police and Maoists flares up in Andhra- Orissa border (AOB) area, 20 places in Visakhapatnam district have been identified as highly vulnerable to Maoist attacks. Besides, the police found that an action team of Maoists is moving in the Agency areas of the district and their activities could spill into the plain areas, including Visakhapatnam city.

According to official sources, the action team comprises Bakuri Venkataramana alias Ganesh Vijay alias Chakali Niranjan, Poduvu Bhupati alias Bangarraju, Krishna, Boya Sanjeeva Rayadu alias Mahendra, Kudumula Venkata Rao alias Ravi, Kamaraju alias Ramadev and Killo Gantanna alias Anil. Each one of them carries a reward of Rs 3 lakh. CPI (Maoist) State committee member Chedda Bhushanam is also believed to be moving along the AOB.

The focus of the police is on flushing out Maoists from the AOB area as any major offensive by them in future can deal a big blow to the police. Combing has been intensified in the vicinity of ‘Galikonda base area’ which is one of the places where Maoists have been conducting camps for training and logistical purposes.

According to reliable sources, Maoists from district to state committee level frequently visit Galikonda area to execute plans and motivate cadres. In a significant move, the police have released posters with photographs of the action team members in Agency areas to alert the police and tribal people. The police are working out strategies to target the action team to make a dent in the Maoist bastion in the east division with due focus on GK Veedhi, Koyyuru and Chintapalli mandals.

In a related development, police of the three north coastal districts have started working together with the Special Operations Group of Orissa which is coping with the Maoist menace in Malkangiri, Rayagada and other districts bordering Andhra Pradesh.

NEW DELHI: The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist)-New Democracy on Friday staged a protest march against the imperialistic policies of the Central Government to mark the 76th anniversary of martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.

Starting from Science Academy at ITO, the activists and workers of CPI (ML)-New marched to Ferozeshah Kotla where several of their leaders and some other intellectuals addressed the gathering.

Delhi Party secretary Aparna told the gathering that, since Independence, the ruling classes of India chose an imperialist-dependent model of “growth” as opposed to a self-dependent, pro-people model of development. As a result, the situation has gone from bad to worse for the common man.

President, Naujawan Bharat Sabha, Mrigank said Bhagat Singh was well aware of the danger that the white Englishman would merely be replaced by a certain “block” of people who were brokers of imperialism. That was why Bhagat Singh specified that independence meant the freedom for workers and ordinary people, Dr. Mrigank told the gathering.

Hindi poet Pankaj Singh and N. K. Bhattacharya of Jan Hastakshep also addressed the gathering. They also criticised the Government’s decision to allow foreign direct investment in retail sector, the Special Economic Zones Act, 2005, and also demanded that forcible land acquisitions should be stopped. They also demanded that the Government should scrap the Land Acquisition Act, 1894. The Hindu

Bastar: Naxals attack police station again

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 25, 2007

New Delhi: Within 15 days of the massacre of 55 policemen, Naxals on Saturday attacked a police station again in Bastar region of Chhattisgarh, police said.

However no policeman was injured in the second Naxal attack in the region.

“Several armed naxalites attacked Maraiguda police station in Dantewada district, about 550 km from Raipur in hyper-sensitive Bastar region,” as quoted by PTI, police sources from Dantewada said.

Exchange of fire between police and Naxals continued for a long time, police said, adding no policemen were injured in the fire.

Since the Maraiguda police station is located close to the Andhra Pradesh border, most likely the Naxalites had crossed the border as police had launched combing operation of that area to trace the armed rebels, police said.

On March 15, naxalites had attacked the Rani Bodla police station of Bijapur district of the region and killed 55 policemen and injured 11 security forces and looted a huge number of weapons and explosive materials. IBN

Naxals to disrupt Jindals minning

Posted by Indian Vanguard on March 25, 2007

Hyderabad : The Naxalites have plans this year to disrupt various proposed infrastructure and mining projects and steel plants by cashing in on the discontent due to displacement of tribals in mineral-rich areas of the country.

The projects, the Naxals have targeted include the bauxite mining project of the Jindals in Visakhapatnam, the Polavaram irrigation project, steel plants proposed in Chhattisgarh by Tata, Essar and Jindal, the Centre’s proposed railway line on the
Rajhara-Raighat-Jagdalpur sector, Posco’s steel plants under construction in Orissa, power plants proposed by the Ambanis, a proposed steel plant in Jharkhand by the Mittal Group and the Kosi irrigation project in northern Bihar.

The revelations come in the annual report of the “Central Military Commission” of the Communist Party of India (Maoist), a copy of which is with this newspaper.The Naxals are also planning political manoeuvring to use the issue of discontent among the people for a mass mobilisation against major projects of various multinational companies and different State governments across the country.

The Naxals estimate that the situation is conducive for converting groups of people to participate in a mass struggle and to eliminate police forces to achieve their objective of “liberation from the exploitative governments and the capitalist class”, the Naxal annual report says.

The document claims that the governments at the Centre and states have become fearful due to the growing intensity and reach of Naxalism. The eight-page report claims that even the United States is fearful of the growing strength and confidence of the Naxalites over the last two years.

The report attempts to qualify its contentions by saying that due to the growing might of Naxalism, the State governments and the Centre have recognised the same as the biggest challenge to internal security. The violence, especially due to a strong revolutionary presence in mineral-rich Orissa, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, has posed a threat to investments of thousands of crores of rupees in these States, the report said.

“The economic policies guided by capitalism have disturbed the lives of all sections of people, as a result of which people’s resistance is growing. Suicides by farmers and labourers, starvation deaths and strikes by the working class against privatisation have become common,” the report claims.

The Naxals are also planning to devise counter-strategies to carry forward their armed struggle and tackle the threat posed to them by the Centre as well as by affected State governments, according to the report. Andra cafe
