The closure of three thousand schools and ashrams by the CG government is a symbol of the economic and academic bankruptcy and its anti people character
The Chathisgarh government started the present academic year of 2015-16 with the closure of three thousand schools and ashrams (residential schools). It closed all these ashrams in the name of lack of admission. The teachers in these schools were transferred to the near by schools. Most of these are primary and middle schools and happen to be in the adivasi area, especially in Bastar division. This not only reveals the anti people and anti adivasi character and history of the BJP government but also exposes its economic and academic bankruptcy.
Of late, due to the shameful conditions of the imperialist financial institutions like the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, the government adopted anti people policy and brought down people’s welfare schemes. Education is being more and more privatized. This is a step towards the conspiracy to deprive the poor adivasis, dalits and backward sections of education and development.
In the name of bringing down the expenditure on establishment, the appointment of teachers and the third and fourth class government employees were withheld long back. In the name of appointment of siksha karmi, contract teachers, daily wage, and casual employees and on contract, temporary appointments are being made with low wages. Now thousands of ashrams in the state were closed. The adivasi area that has been facing the problems of lack of schools, teachers, and illiteracy has now been much deprived of children’s education. The appointment in the vacancies of tens of thousands of teachers was permanently brought to a stop. The unemployed in the backward adivasi areas have been deprived of employment. Due to the financial bankruptcy of the CG government it implemented cuts in providing infrastructure like library, laboratory, uniforms, note books, and text books, mid day meals, recruitment of new teachers, their wages and other facilities.
The actual meaning of the constant fake propaganda in the TV and Radio ‘bachho, padho-likho, aage bado’ (children, read-write, go forward) and that Maoists are against tribals’ education has been nakedly revealed to the people. For children, especially girls who cannot afford to go to school even in their own villages; it would be almost difficult to go to schools far away. The inevitable situation in which the girls and boys of the family are forced to do domestic work, labor, and farming is itself a curse. This is depriving them of education. Instead of bettering the situation of such kind of families and educating the children, the government is closing the ashrams in the name of lack of admission. This is nothing but worse conspiratorial and negligent attitude of the government towards the education of the oppressed sections. This would affect women’s literacy and the literacy of adivasi women would fall under the dark. Narendra Modi’s reiterating slogan, ‘beti bachao, beti padhao’ (meaning ‘protect girls, educate girls’) is clearly revealed to the people. These kinds of slogans are given only to mislead and mystify the people. On one hand thousands of ashrams are being closed and on the other the Minister of education of Chathisgarh, Kedar Kashyap announces that in the present academic year six and a half lakhs of children would join the ashrams. This is not only ridiculous but also misgiving. Backward classes, dalits and adivsis, especially the women in these sections are deprived of education which proves the anti adivasi, anti education and anti development.
The Raman singh government that is depriving the backward sections, Dalits, adivasis of education is in fact anti development. The real meaning of Raman singh’s development is that of the domestic and foreign corporate giants and is giving away the jal jungle and zameen of the people to them. The meaning of development is the absolute deprivation of the poor, backward, dalits and adivasis of basic amenities like food, shelter, clothing, education, health, drinking water etc. Raman Singh is afraid that if the adivasis are educated, they would become elite and would raise their voice much more strongly against their exploitation and repression and that they would intensify armed struggle for their genuine development and self rule.
Many of the schools in Bastar Division even now happen to be the shelters of the police and para military forces. In spite of the direction of the Supreme Court of the country this situation exists as and how the forces wish. On the other side the schools that are being run by the Revolutionary Janathana Sarkar(RPC) that has been formed under the leadership of our Party are being targeted by the armed forces of the government. The dozens of schools of the janathana sarkar (people’s government) that are being run in Narayanapur, Kanker, Bastar, Bijapur, Dantewada and Sukma districts were attacked and the notebooks, textbooks, clothes and other such essential articles have been burnt. This clearly reveals the fakeness of the Raman singh government regarding the education of the adivasis.
Our party calls upon all the students, teachers, parents and guardians, progressive and democratic intellectuals, human rights organisations, adivasi and non adivasi social organisations to strongly protest the anti education policy of the Chathisgarh government and to take up programs to demand the withdrawal of the decision of closing the ashrams. We call upon the people and teachers of the affected villages to come forward and demand the retaining of the ashrams in their original places.

A report from War Zone of Manipur
It is an act of cowardice to separate the people of Chandel district aside from other places of Manipur because of the ongoing Indian Military Operation. Chadel district is a very important and remarkable place for Maoist Communist Party Manipur from where its first vice-Chairman, comrade Ngamlet Baite hailed since the first establishment and embodiment of the party. Still this district is a place where our party committee has been prevailing in a complete and solid organizational form. The Indian Army has been endlessly continuing to jeopardize and frighten the innocent people in the areas of the district after the attacked against Indian Army carried out by some ethnic militant group. The act of Search and Destroy operation is still imposed, by using a group of armed black gang who are under the Suspension of Operation (SoO) with government of India on the pretext of ongoing peace-pact, in search of militants.
According to the information provided by the cadres of MCPM who are operating in the areas of Chandel report that the armed Black gang under SoO came on the lead followed by Indian Army behind. Mr. Minthang, a gang leader took the charge of first in command and Thangboi@Jacob as second in command while the Indian armies followed behind. Thus some of the individuals who are claimed or said to be talking peace-process under SoO are utilised as Human Robot by Indian Army in this so called Military Operation. Mr. Jacob@ Thangboi is the middle man to communicate with the Indian Forces and their Gang members as Indian Army does not understand and speak local dialect and he is the lone person who understands and speak Indian Language (Hindi). These gang of reactionary led by Minthang and Jacob has pick them up from a camp which officially constructed by the Indian Government at Khamarol Village, hails at Chandel District. They are not allowed to use in so called Counter Insurgency operation of Indian Army as per the agreement under the Suspension of Operation (SoO) or Peace pact. The people of Chandel know well, clearly which members of gang party Mr. Minthang and Mr. Thangboi@Jacob belong to.
There are many party cadres and its units in different places in Chandel district of Manipur. There is no any point of hurt or wound or casualty on the part of the party members in there where military operation is undergoing. It is also an impossible thing on the part of Indian Army who afraid to approach on the lead the encounter to suppress and defeat the revolutionary parties of Manipur. There is not a single camp of MCPM in the territory of Burma (Myanmar).
The National Liberation Movement of Manipur cannot be ever suppressed or uprooted whenever and wherever the Manipuri’s exist on the earth. That the Indian Army who have joint and sent to earn monthly salary by the imperialist and Colonialist India will never be able to suppress the National Liberation Movements of Manipur. Without the slightest knowledge of what is happening in Manipur and without collecting any exact details of the Operation from the spot or nearby villages, some of the mainland Indian Media houses make the Indian armies turn into tigers. Nothing is to be considerable and convinced such hired propaganda. Such people and such activities are termed as “Reactionaries are the paper tigers” by Comrade Chairman Mao. Amid this, the most wonderment is that real situation are in front of the local journalists of Manipur, yet reports are copied or translated from concocted information’s which are published in mainland Indian media (National media, which are thousands of miles far from the Manipur) and re-printed in Manipur by Manipuri Media.
Even a single Manipuri journalist (media) including Mainland Media has not yet trodden and traced into any place where the Military Operation, which comprises of the gang party under SoO is on the lead and the Indian Army that follow behind the gang party, has affected. So the news and information which has been provided regarding the Military Operation in the media are all for none but to preserve the moral of the Indian Army. Thus the newspapers run in mainland India are all hiring of Indian Multi co-operation.
Unfortunately, the way of taking responsibility of the journalists of Manipur at this juncture in such crucial moment is contemptible that such deeds never existed in the history of Manipur. It is high time for the local journalists to ponder over their risk and responsibility in such a situation particularly Indian Military Operations and gross human rights violation by the State.
Essentially our communiqué is to extend so as to affirm the people of Manipur and the people of the world as well to know the very fake drama played and exercised by GOI since local media and occupied Indian media have not yet provided and published the true accounts of Military Operation conducted utilizing group of Black gangs under SoO.
Our Statement might not be published by any of the Indian media. Therefore, all the Maoist Party of the world is appealed to publish it throughout the world. The very message that the UNDERGOING MILITARY OPERATION CANNOT AFFECT THE REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENTS OF MCPM is relayed and assured to the people of the world at large.
