India: 2 security personnel killed, 4 injured in encounter with Maoist in Sukma

 
Two security personnel were killed and four others were injured in encounters at various places between Maoists and security forces in Chhattisgarh’s South Sukma on Saturday.
IG Bastar, Vivekanand confirmed that the two jawans of district reserve guards (DRG) were killed in an encounter near Bheji area of South Sukma.
The injured were rushed to Raipur. The condition of three jawans is said to be serious, police sources said.
The encounter continues to rage.
“A massive encounter is going on since Friday in that area of South Sukma. A joint force of security forces is in the jungles of South Sukma and they are fighting with the battalion of Maoists,” special director general of naxal operations, D M Awasthi told Hindustan Times.
Awasthi also said that around 20 Maoists are also killed in the encounter. But security forces could find only one body of a Maoist so far.
The joint team, comprising personnel from STF, District Reserve Guard (DRG) and CoBRA (Commando Battalion for Resolute Action), was carrying out anti-Naxal operation in Chintagufa area, around 500 km from the Chhattisgarh capital Raipur.
Chintagufa is said to be the “capital of Maoists” in Bastar.
“The team is still cordoning off a forest patch in southern part of Sukma and positive results will come in next few hours,” said a senior police officer.
Police said that the Anti Naxal Task Force (ANTF) of the Indian Air Force had been also involved in large scale troop transportation for this operation which was named Operation Prahar by the Chhattisgarh police.
In the last couple of months Maoists had launched two major attacks on security forces in the same area.
On April 24, 25 CRPF troopers were killed in a Naxal ambush in Burkapal area under Chintagufa police station while 14 were killed on Bhejji on March 12.

Student protests and GMOA strikes

Student protests and GMOA strikes

Last week, thousands of university students stormed the Health Ministry demanding the government to abolish the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM). This resulted in a clash as the Police and the Special Task Force (STF) was deployed to disperse students. The decision of the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) to go on strike was a sudden move which was announced after 90 student- protesters were hospitalized following the clash.

In the recent past, there have been many strikes launched by the GMOA, most of them were based on the demand to nationalize the SAITM. Although the response of the government was very slow, certain decisions were taken by the Higher Education Ministry in relation to SAITM such as decisions to nationalize the Neville Fernando Teaching Hospital (NFTH), requesting SAITM to stop recruiting students and so on. However, neither the GMOA nor the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) which are the force behind the anti-SAITM protests, were satisfied by any of the actions taken by the government. The students continued to protest and doctors resorted to strikes without compromise.

In the aftermath of the incident, the Convener of the IUSF, Lahiru Weerasekara was arrested and remanded until 5 July along with two other student activists. Ceylon Today spoke to Ryan Jayalath, Convener of the Medical Faculty Student Active Committee.
Jayalath stressed that there exists a military rule at present and the government is trying to suppress students and protect SAITM, which is a fraudulent institution. He added, so far three student-activists have been arrested and as per the information received there are plans to arrest more student leaders and weaken the struggle against SAITM.

Meanwhile, commenting on Wednesday’s incident where thousands of university students broke into the Health Ministry and clashed with the Police, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said, the Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) was behind the incident.

“They wanted to get one of the students killed. There is no reason to invade the Health Ministry, damage property and clash with Police if they just wanted to protest,” he said.

However, Jayalath who is a major organizer of anti-SAITM protests claim that these protests are not politically motivated and not backed by any party.

“This is a struggle of the people. Not a struggle of only university students. As Senaratne said we do not want a dead body. Yet, it implies that the government is willing to kill one of the protesters. How fair and democratic is that?” he questioned from the government.

Accordingly, the IUSF lodged a complaint with the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) against the brutal attack carried out by the STF. Jayalath claims that they went to the Health Ministry on public day and the Minister was not there to meet him.

Property damage

Accordingly, nearly 90 students were injured and are being treated at the National Hospital, Colombo.

The Health Ministry claimed that the protestors had damaged property worth around Rs 1 million. Minister Senaratne claimed that this was an act of violence and not the way to express opinions.

Doctor strike

The GMOA in response to the attack against the university students and the failure of the government to provide solutions to the crisis regarding SAITM launched a strike on Thursday. GMOA General Secretary, Dr. Naveen de Soysa, told the media that in addition to the strike in Government hospitals, members of the GMOA also kept away from private practice as well.

According to Dr. Soysa, the GMOA demands include the Attorney General informing the Court about the lack of standards for teaching at SAITM, gazetting the minimum standards required for medical education and the nationalization of SAITM. However, after the discussions with the President the strike was called.

The GMOA said that despite the countrywide strike, emergency services in all hospitals continued. The strike also spared children, maternity and, cancer hospitals and kidney patients.

Doctors were also at hand to treat patients with fever, to identify those who are diagnosed with dengue and to provide treatment accordingly.

“We will ensure that not a single patient’s life will be lost due to our strike action,” stressed Dr. Soysa.

Dr. Soysa added, they are willing to have discussions with the President and the Prime Minister, but not with Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, who they claim was justifying the fraudulent acts of SAITM and attempting to give it legal recognition.

However, Ryan Jayalath assured the continuation of struggle against SAITM and claimed the movement will become more powerful.

Nepal – info from The next front – ‘Communist’: A New Magazine by CPI (Maoist)

 

 

 

The Communist Party of India (Maoist), Western Ghats Special Zonal Committe has published a magazine named ”Communist”. In its first issue of May 2017, it includes ‘Editorial’, Naxalbari : a historical turning point’, Crisis of Imperialism, fascism and our tasks’, ‘The valiant People’s liberation guerrilla  army (PLGA) and its historical significance in  Indian revolution, ‘Political situation and our tasks’, Call to the people’. These are the articles of great significance. We will translate these articles to publish in our Nepalese website janamel.com.  Here we publish the chapter ‘Editorial’. 
——————————————————————————————–
Editorial:
Dear Readers,
The Editorial Board of the ”Communist” extends its revolutionary greetings to all. Since our PLGA forces entered the Tri-junction in Feb 2013 the WGSZC was planning to bring out a political-ideological magazine. But due to various reasons we were not able to do it till now. We all know that the political ideological level of the party needs to be enhanced.
We must pay serious attention on this important task. We hope that this magazine would contribute a bit to fulfill that task. Our teachers taught us that a magazine is very essential to educate, organise and unify the whole party ideologically and politically. It is also very essential to Bolshevise the party. Low level political and ideological level of the party is a breeding ground for the growth of various non-proletarian trends and right and left deviation in the party. Our party in this region is often facing this problem.

We must pay serious attention to put an end to this problem. To do that we must understand why such a things are happening. One important reason is that we do not have a firm grip on our party line. The low political and ideological level of the party contributes to this. This provides a chance for the opportunists to confuse the cadres an deviate from the political ideological line of the party. We could see this in KN and TN. In KN, the whole party was caught in this vicious circle for about five years and lost good opportunity to build a powerful revolutionary movement. One aspect of the problem was the machinations adopted by the opportunists to sabotage the movement. But the other important problem is that we were not firm in understanding the political line of the party and implement it to the concrete conditions in Malnad.
In TN, although we were succeeded in defeating the opportunist’s effort to drag the party into right deviationist line and settled the issue quickly we failed to put that line into practice and build a powerfull movement. To do that we must enhance our understanding of our line by tempering ourselves in the furnace of class struggle and solve the political and other problems faced in the course of the struggle. This is the real essence of having firm grip over the political-ideological line of the party. Another important task is Bolshevisation of the party. What does it really means? It is nothing but to remould our outlook and make ourselves capable of leading the masses to build New Democratic India and then advance towards socialism. This requires a strong ideological remoulding. We must get rid of the alien trends affecting our thinking and practice. Educating ourselves in basic MLM ideological aspects is an important aspect of Bolshevisation.
The experiences of international communist movement, particularly the Russian and Chinese devolutions and ongoing peoples wars in various countries must be studied and applied to our concrete conditions. We started to build an armed struggle front in the Western Ghats from the beginning of the Millennium, to be exact, from 2002 onwards. Squads were deployed in Malnad and the open movement was also functioned side by side.
As the class struggle intensified, the enemy unleashed cruel repression on the movement killing seventeen comrades in the last ten years. This is a huge loss for the party when compared with its strength and the revolutionary movement we could able to build. In TN our attempts in Dharmapuri to enter into forest area was failed with the encounter in Uthangarai in 2002 with the killing of comrade Shiva and arrest of more than two dozen comrades. Later, our efforts in
Theni-Kodaikkanal was also ended with yet another encounter and killing of comrade Naveen Prasad in 2008. Drawing lessons from these experiences we embarked on to build the armed struggle in Tri-junction. As soon as we entered Kerala the ruling classes and their henchmen and the corporate media made a big hue and cry as if the heaven are fallen on their heads.
They howled thumping their chests that the Maoist will be eliminated in a matter of few weeks or months. But the movement not only gained foothold among the masses but also able to launch attacks on the enemy targets. Shocked by these unexpected attacks which exposed the anti people policies of the ruling parties and fearing the militancy it could add to peoples struggles, the state and central governments started witch hunting through their specialised armed forces and cunning intelligence wings not only on Maoists but also on all progressive and democratic forces and on common struggling people.
In this process, the party and the people faced a big loss which is also a result of wrong trends rooted deep among us. We are facing a double edged sword that in one end enemy is trying to eliminate us and on the other hand we ourselves have serious lacunas to rectify which are the long pending ones. Facing this double edged sword successfully means we come out of the edge which is stabbing – us from within i.e. wrong trends with serious ideological remoulding and communist values. Then only we can successfully face the enemy and can make his plan failed. Not only that, we can turn the sword against him by protecting us and transform that edges as sharp weapon against enemy with firm ideological grip and Bolshevic spirit.
Actually an ideological organ have to do this within the party. If it is possible to us to bring out this magazine regularly with the help and encouragement of all party members and leading committees, it will become easy to fulfill the tasks which an organ bound to do in coming days. Because, enemy wants to block this to hinder our effort to educate, organise, unite and Bolshevise the party but by opposing that we should bring out this with maximum effort by making fail his sabotage agenda as a challenge.
We are requesting our party members to read, write, discuss, propagate, translate and distribute this organ throughout the party and to sympathisers. Comrade Manju puts serious efforts and took initiative to bring out this magazine. Comrade Ajitha also engaged in this process. During that process both of them were killed by the enemy on November 24, 2016. We lost the writings of the martyred comrades in that encounter. Finally now we are publishing this with available articles. We are dedicating this first magazine to the martyred comrades.
