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

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  Here we publish the chapter ‘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.

India – Maoist links: DU professor GN Saibaba, JNU student and three others get life imprisonment

India – Maoist links: DU professor GN Saibaba, JNU student and three others get life imprisonment


The Gadchiroli sessions court today granted life imprisonment to Delhi University professor G N Saibaba, a JNU student and three other convicts in connection with their Maoist links. One convict Vijay Tirki got 10-years jail.

Earlier in the day, the six accused were convicted by the Gadchiroli court for their alleged links with Maoists and their involvement in anti-India activities.

Along with DU professor Saibaba, JNU student Hem Mishra, former journalist Prashant Rahi and three others have been convicted for Maoist links. The Gadchiroli court announced the punishment at 3 pm today. The other three convicts are couriers Mahesh Tirki, Pandu Narote and Vijay Tirki.

The court found Saibaba and five others guilty of waging a war against India. Saibaba was a professor at Delhi University’s Ram Lal Anand College. According to The Indian Express, Judge SS Shinde convicted the accused under sections 13, 18, 20, 38 and 39 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

Earlier, prosecution lawyer Prashant Sathianathan had demanded life imprisonment under section 20 of the Act for the accused. He also that Saibaba shouldn’t get any reprieve, even as he is disabled and wheelchair-bound. The prosecution argued that his handicap didn’t stop him from aiding and abetting activities that claimed several lives. Saibaba was out on bail since June last year.

Mishra and Rahi were first arrested in August and September 2013 from Aheri and Chhattisgarh respectively, according to police. Saibaba was arrested on May 9, 2014 from his residence in Delhi on the basis of the alleged incriminating material recovered from the two. The police claimed they had recovered documents, hard disks and pen drives.

During the argument in court in November, the prosecution said that the prosecution of the accused was being done as per the rules. “We told the court that the sanction was secured from the state government after submission of documents and material that establish the complicity of the three accused in the activities furthering the cause of the banned organization,” Prashant Sathiyanathan, Special Public Prosecutor, had told The Indian Express.

Malkangiri fake encounter: No any response by the Nepalese Maoist Parties

Malkangiri fake encounter: No any response by the Nepalese Maoist Parties

R.R.Baral Rishi Raj Baral
The current situation faced by the Nepalese Maoist Movement has become the matter of concern and curiosity for all-inside the country and abroad. These days, everyone is asking a question—what the Nepalese Maoists are doing? Are they still at the crossroads or they are heading towards somewhere? It is not the matter to cover up, frankly I would like to say that, at present, Nepalese Maoist Movement is critically suffered and struggling for its existence.
Last year, I had written an article entitled ‘Indian Blockade and Nepalese Maoists’. There I had mentioned: ”It is the reality that, there are Maoist revolutionaries in Nepal, but there is no any revolutionary Maoist Party in Nepal”. It was not my subjective assertion, it was the objective reality of the Nepalese Maoist Movement. Current situation of the Nepalese Maoist movement has justified my analysis.
We all know Baburam Bhattarai has abandoned the path of Marxism.  He has declared that, he has no any faith in Marxism. He has formed a new party, a pure bourgeois party. Prachanda the most corrupted person in the Nepalese Maoist Movement, the ringleader of traitors—the renegade, has mentioned the terminology Marxism-Leninism-Maoismin his party document, but in practice, he has gone far away from the path of revolution. Ultimately he has taken the place of Bauram Bhattarai a pro-Indian notorious person in the Nepalese Maoist movement. Now Prachanda is known as the faithful puppet of Indian expansionism. We must be clear that, Prachanda is no more a Communist, not even a nationalist, now he is the true representative of neo-reactionary class—the comprador.
Now we have two other organizations,who project themselves as the revolutionary Maoists of Nepal. These are the Communist party of Nepal (Revolutionary Maoist) led by Mohan Baidhya ‘Kiran’ and CPN (Maoist) led by Netra Bikram Chanda ‘Biplav’.  Biplav has some young cadres, but ideologically and politically Chand’s Party is not clear in its goal. It seems that Chanda himself has no any interest in studying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and applying it in the Nepalese context.  He has denied the glorious history of Paris Commune to the New Democratic Revolution of China, led by the great leader and helmsman Comrade Maotsetung. According to the Chanda led Maoist, the line that can protect the Maoist movement from all ideological problems is ”unified people’s revolution”. Pleading for unified people’s revolution Chanda states: “If attempts are made to find solution for today’s world from Marx’s, Lenin’s and Mao’s syntheses, which are 177, 100 and 65 years old respectively, it is tantamount to fitting a steam engine in the Jet-plane.” In fact, CPN (Maoist) led by Biplav is heading towards the repudiation of MLM, that is Post-MLM. So that, in a recently written document, Biplav has pleaded the concept of Post-imperialism,that means the end of imperialism. They are going to held the 8th National Congress in February, 2017.  In which direction they will move and what will be their ideological and political line is a matter of wait and see. But since two years they are exercising—“the movement is everything, the final goal is nothing”.
Now we have another faction CPN (Revolutionary Maoist) led by Comrade Mohan Baidhya ‘Kiran’. In this organization, there are senior leaders, who have the experience of 5 decades of Communist Movement. They have mentioned MLM as their guiding principal. They have declared New Democratic Revolution as their minimum program and they have also mentioned the significance of 3 magical weapon. But they have denied the role of People’s War—the path guided by Maoism. They have mentioned ”people’s armed struggle” as their political line. They are the strong supporter of federal system and identity politics. Party unification with Nepal Communist Party (unified), led by Pari Thapa also has produced a lot of confusion among the cadres. Because some of the leaders of this party are NGO holders and in the past, they had played negative role against the Peoples War.
There is another problem with Baidhya led Maoist Party. Now they have formed a front, named as ‘Patriotic People’s Republic Front, Nepal’. They have convinced their cadres that, the front is one of the componentof 3 magical weapon and it will play the role of united front in the New Democratic Revolution. But the chairman of ‘Patriotic People’s Republic Front, Nepal’ CP Gajurel ‘Gaurav’, in a press conference told that the front will take part in local election and it will be registered also in the election commission. In fact, they want to participate in the coming election conducted by the reactionary government, and want to be law makers and so on.  Now they are going to form a joint front with the so called Communist parties, who used to  take part in election and hold the ministerial posts. No matter, whatever they speak, Baidhya faction is going to participate in the coming election and the front will fulfill this role.

‘Patriotic People’s Republic Front, Nepal’ has produced a lot of confusion among the cadres. In their opinion, pleading for identity politics and participation in the election will damage the remaining reputation of the Party. No matter, the formation of the front and decision to take part in election will make them close with Prachanda. Baidhya led Party has announced the national gathering in February 2017. We must have to wait and see until their National gathering. In paper, to some extent, Baidhya led party seems as the follower of New Democratic Revolution, but in practice it has nothing to do. Just writing revolutionary words in the document is not enough, it needs practice. The main problem of Baidhya faction is not to apply the theory into practice.
Now I want to raise another issue. Comrade Gaurav has long experience in the International Communist Movement. But at present he is not clear about the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement. In an article published in his party organ Maoist, not only he has minimized the significance of ‘May Day declaration 2016’, he has mentioned that the world situation is not favorable for the revolution, and it takes long time to achieve the goal.  It means, world situation is not favorable for the revolution, so that, we must participate in the coming election. To take part in election means to be the part of government’s plan and policy. Expressing such view, he has denied the role of conscious effort and has pleaded  spontaneousism.
Now there is another issue,that I am going to point out here.  Baidhya led party never supported the Peoples War in India, Turkey and Philippines. They never passed any resolution about such burning issues. They never mentioned these issues in their party documents. After a big pressure, in Pokhara CC meeting, they were compelled to mention the word ”condemn the operation green hunt in India”. But in practice, they never took this issue seriously. It is the reality that, they don’t want to raise this issue strongly, but just in words.
At present, the whole universe has stood against the reactionary Modi government of India. The civil right organizations, like RDF, CRPP, PUCL and the parties like CPI also have condemned the Malkangiri fake encounter. Some organizations have come out in the street condemning the fake encounter and making solidarity with the oppressed people of India. Not only from India, from Italy, Germany and other parts of the world, people have come out in the street holding the red banner, ” Condemn the fake encounter” , ”Stop the War on People” . Slogans are chanting in the street. But the Nepalese Maoist parties are still in a deep sleep. In Nepal no any Maoist party and civil right oraganisation has spoken even a single word, no any statement, no any response in this issue.  But still they are pleading that they are revolutionary Maoists and they have the legacy of 10 years Peoples War.
It is a matter of pain that how soon Baidhya and Gaurav both have forgotten, during the 10 years Peoples War in Nepal, when they were captured by the Indian Police and the Indian Comrades and civil right organizations had come out in street demanding their release, demanding to save their lives.  What a matter of irony!
Biplav faction has no any concern on such issues. They are against the Maoist People’s war. Now they are busy in ”deusi-bhailo” (a Hindu religious festival worshiping goddess of wealth Lakshmi ).  But what the Baidhya led Maoist party is doing? Are they unknown in this issue? No they are not unknown in this issue. But they don’t want to speak in this issue. It is open secret that, why they don’t want to speak in this issue. What type of proletarian internationalism they are exercising, is hard to understand.
Now, again I would like to say that ”there are Maoist revolutionaries in Nepal, but there is no any revolutionary Maoist party in Nepal”.
But we do, our Revolutionary Intellectual-Cultural Front, Nepal does it.
We do our best effort to make strong solidarity with the oppressed people India.
We do our best effort to support the People’s War in India.
We do our best effort to strengthen the campaign against the fascist Government of India.
We do our best effort to uphold the proletarian internationalism.

India – Condemn Malkangiri encounters!

India – Condemn Malkangiri encounters! Halt the war on our own citizens! – PUCL

Press Statement

Condemn Malkangiri encounters! Halt the war on our own citizens!

PUCL expresses its strongest sense of outrage and condemnation for the killing of about 39 members of the CPI (Maoist) party and other Adivasis near Balimela reservoir in Malkangiri district of Odisha close to the Odisha – AP border on 24th October, 2016.  Though the police claim that the killings were a result of a sudden encounter and resultant fire-fight, all the available circumstantial information indicates that there is sufficient ground to disbelieve the story put forth by the police and Government. All the tell tale signs of a false encounter killing lend weight to the allegation that many of the killed Maoist leaders were actually apprehended previously, shot in cold blood and a fake encounter episode fabricated to explain the killing of all persons allegedly involved. Torture marks are also said to have been seen on the bodies of those killed.

This incident raises yet again substantiates very worrying trends noticed in the response of security forces in conflict areas:

  1. Politics of annihilation, capturing no militants: Subversion of Criminal Justice System

A noticeable feature of this encounter killing, as in many other recent killings, is that the security forces end up eliminating or killing all members of the alleged militant group claiming that there was no alternative. Such practice of eliminating all militants is resorted to leave no eye witnesses to the fake encounter alive. This unbridled power exercised by the security forces with the connivance / complicity of the State or Government has substantially criminalised the security forces dealing a death blow to the rule of law and criminal justice system.

  1. Police Impunity, lack of accountability of security forces and Complicity of State – Failure of Constitutional governance:

The Malkangiri killings  once again strongly points out to the sense of impunity and the lack of accountability with which the security forces operate in the country. Very disturbing is the role of the State or Government in ensuring strict compliance with the Indian constitution on the part of the security forces lending weight to the allegation that they are complicit with the subversion of rule of law and constitutional governance.

            The latest proof of state complicity in lawlessness of security forces and the false staging of encounters and actual commission of violence against uninvolved villagers came in the Supreme Court when in October, 2016, the CBI filed a chargesheet in  the Tadmetla arson case (of 2011 in Chhattisgarh) implicating 323 Special Police Officers (SPOs) / Policemen as well as 114 personnel of COBRA and 30 personnel of CRPF as having participated in operations in Morpalli, Tadmetla and Timapuram villages of Chhattisgarh resulting in the killing of 3 men, rape of 3 women and burning down of over 250 houses between 11th to 16th March, 20111 and attack of Swami Agnivesh when he went to deliver relief supplies on 26th March, 2011.   The police and Chhattisgarh government had in 2011 strongly refuted involvement of security forces in violence on villagers and instead continuously alleged that it was the Maoists and villagers themselves who had burnt down the houses.

The truth has been exposed now thanks to the independent investigation by the CBI having been ordered by the Supreme Court of India into the Tadmetla incidents. It will be useful to note that the CBI investigating team itself met serious threats and intimidation from the state police while completing investigations.

PUCL demands that the guidelines given by the Supreme Court in `People’s Union for Civil Liberties vs State of Maharashtra’ case (2014) should be enforced without exception. The mandate of law requires that in every instance of encounter killings a FIR has to be registered and investigated by independent police agency.

 Considering that the Special Police forces of the 2 states, Odisha and AP,  have been involved in the alleged encounters and the continuing allegation that the state governments in both states have supported and ensured impunity and immunity enjoyed by the police from investigation, there are enough grounds to feel that independent, impartial and credible investigation cannot be done by the police forces themselves into the encounters.

PUCL therefore demands:

(i)    that a Judicial enquiry be initiated headed by a sitting Supreme Court or High Court judge into the killings so that the truth of the killings can be brought to light.

(ii)  A FIR should be registered into the encounter killings, providing the names of all security personnel involved, as required by the SC judgment in PUCL Case 2014.

(iii)         The Government of AP and the AP State Police should comply with the Orders passed by the AP High Court on 31st October, 2016, to immediately produce before the Court,  Ramakrishna @ Akkiraju Hargopal @ AK, Gaajarla Ravi and 9 others who are supposed to be in the custody of the AP Police since the 24th October incident and ensure that their personal safety, life and well being are protected.

free ajith – the declaration of PCI(Maoist)




Strongly condemn the arrest of Comrades Murali and Ismail!
Struggle for the release of all the ailing and aged senior Maoist political prisoners!
The notorious and lawless special branch of Maharashtra Police – the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) – arrested Central Committee Member of our Party Comrade Murali Kannamballi (Ajith) from a hospital in Talegaon Dabhade near Pune on 8 May 2015. Comrade Ismail Hamza Chiragpalli, who was attending him in the hospital, was also arrested. They were interrogated for many hours and the next day produced in the court with hoods on their heads and handcuffs on their hands. Speaking to the media while being taken to the court, Comrade Murali, who never denied that he was a member of the CPI(Maoist), protested against the blatantly illegal and inhuman manner in which he was arrested from the hospital while undergoing treatment.
They were also denied the right to an advocate at the time of arrest. Taking at face value the allegations made by the ATS, the judge in a prejudiced manner concluded that the accused were “prima facie involved in anti-national activities” and sent them to ATS custody. The custody was extended several times subsequently, during which the various central and state special intelligence agencies including those from Delhi, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Chhattisgarh subjected comrades Murali and Ismail to intense interrogation. Various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the draconian Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) have been invoked against them by implicating them in a number of fabricated cases. The Central Committee of the CPI(Maoist) strongly condemns the Indian government for illegally arresting comrades Murali and Ismail and demands that Murali be given all medical facilities, all the cases framed against them be withdrawn and they be released unconditionally.
Comrade Murali had joined the revolutionary movement while studying in the Regional Engineering College (REC), Kozhikode in the mid-1970s. In February 1976, revolutionaries armed only with rods, wooden staffs and household weapons attacked Kayanna police station near Perambra of Kozhikode and seized arms. Murali and 18 others were accused by the police of involvement in the case. One of the accused P Rajan, a fellow student and a close associate of Murali, was detained by the police, taken to a police camp near Kozhikode, tortured and killed in custody, an incident which led to a massive protest and the resignation of the then Keralam Chief Minister K Karunakaran. Murali too was detained and questioned by the police. The courts later acquitted all of them in the case as the police failed to substantiate their charges. But Murali had already left his studies in 1976 to join the revolutionary movement as a professional revolutionary.
After the all-India movement suffered setbacks and splits in the 1970s, Comrade Murali and other comrades of Keralam had put relentless efforts to unite the fragmented genuine revolutionary forces. As a part of this effort, CPI(ML)[Reorganising Committee] was formed with the merger of Andhra Pradesh Reorganising Committee (APROC) led by Comrade Rawoof and revolutionaries of Keralam led by K Venu and K N Ramachandran. Subsequently, CRC CPI(ML) was formed in 1979. Murali was a leading member of both RC and CRC. Sharp ideological struggles continued against the right deviation and capitulationism of K N Ramachandran and later against the anti-Marxist line of K Venu to uphold and defend the ideological-political-military line of Charu Majumdar and the CPI(ML). Comrade Murali played an important role in this struggle and was among the leading comrades who formed Maoist Unity Centre (MUC) CPI(ML) in the 1990s by rejecting the liquidationist line of Ramachandran and Venu. Soon after the formation of CPI(ML)Naxalbari under the leadership of Comrade Rawoof in 1998, MUC and CPI(ML)Naxalbari merged and Murali became one of its CC members. He took over as the secretary of CPI(ML)Naxalbari after its founding secretary Rawoof retired in 2006 due to age-related illness. Unity efforts between CPI(Maoist) and CPI(ML) Naxalbari which had already started was continued in the period, finally culminating in the merger of the two parties in May 2014. Comrade Murali played a significant role on behalf of CPI(ML)Naxalbari to realise this unity. Since then, he has been performing his responsibilities as a CC member of CPI(Maoist).
In this way, throughout his decades of revolutionary life Comrade Murali contributed to the struggles to defend MLM against revisionists of various hues both in the country and the International Communist Movement. Since the time of the formation of CRC CPI(ML), Comrade Murali had been working in the international sphere for many decades. He always held that the people’s war has to be built in every state to advance India’s New Democratic Revolution and made continuous efforts in this direction. He was part of the efforts to develop the revolutionary movement in Keralam and some other states. He continuously worked for the political education of the cadre and untiringly carried out revolutionary propaganda. He has authored books like Bhoomi, Jathi, Bandhanam (Land, Caste, Bondage) an analysis of the social relations of Keralam from a Marxist perspective published in 2002. He was in the midst of working on a new edition of the book and was completing its English translation at the time of his arrest. He was an editor of a number of magazines including A World to Win, Mass Line and Naxalbari and wrote many articles on various themes over the decades. Since the merger of CPI(Maoist) and CPI(ML)Naxalbari, he has been an editor of the revolutionary online magazine People’s March.
Since Comrade Murali had undergone a heart surgery a few years back, he needed continuous assistance for his recuperation. Comrade Ismail Hamza Chiragpalli, inspired by the Murali’s lifelong dedication in the service of the people, offered his help and has been providing him the much-needed help. Our CC congratulates Comrade Ismail for his selfless service to a senior leader of the country’s revolutionary movement and sends him our revolutionary greetings.
The fact that the Indian government decided to arrest a patient and his aide from the hospital and thrust them into the prison speaks volumes about the utter ruthlessness of the rulers when it comes to suppressing the Maoist revolutionaries and their supporters.
The arrest of Comrade Murali is a part of the countrywide counter-revolutionary war carried out by the Indian ruling classes against the revolutionary movement. In order to crush CPI(Maoist) and to deprive the revolutionary masses of leadership, the reactionary governments are using all means to decimating the party’s leading comrades at all levels and particularly its strategic central leadership. Since the formation of CPI(Maoist), a number of CC comrades have been arrested on false cases and left to languish behind bars in horrific conditions for years at end. A few CC comrades have been killed by the state in fake encounters in a planned manner.
Such attacks have intensified after the Brahmanical Hindu-fascist BJP came to power last year, which lost no time in launching the more cruel, deceptive and deceitful third phase of Operation Green Hunt to damage the Maoist movement. Comrade Murali’s arrest is a result of this.
The enemy was alarmed by the merger of CPI(Maoist) and CPI(ML)Naxalbari and the strengthening of the Maoist movement as a result. Worried that the unity would bolster the movement in the Western Ghats in particular, the central and state governments have been carrying out an intense counter-revolutionary armed campaign in the Keralam-Karnataka-Tamil Nadu tri-junction since the announcement of the merger. Arrests of revolutionaries and democrats in the three states have seen an unprecedented leap in the last one year in the region, mostly in Keralam. Moreover, democratic organisations, civil rights activists and progressive individuals of Keralam who take the side of the oppressed masses have been targeted by the government with arrests, illegal detention, interrogation, surveillance, slapping of false cases, threats, misinformation campaign, etc. Particularly after the Politico-Military Campaign was initiated by the Western Ghats Special Zonal Committee of the Party in November 2014, tens of persons have been picked up on the mere suspicion of being Maoists and imprisoned. Just a couple of weeks before the arrest of comrades Murali and Ismail, the police had arrested our Party’s senior cadres and leading comrades Roopesh, Shyna, Kannan, Anup and Veeramani from Coimbatore and put a plethora of false cases on them.
After these arrests, and particularly with the arrest of Comrade Murali, the ruling classes have claimed that they have “broken the backbone” of the Maoist movement in South India.
Some persons who do not wish the unity of Maoist revolutionaries have tried to portray the arrest as a result of the ‘failed’ merger between CPI(Maoist) and CPI(ML)Naxalbari. Many others have gone even further to claim that the line of protracted people’s war itself is not applicable to the present Keralam. With such arguments they try to sow doubts in the minds of the oppressed masses about the possibility of the Maoist movement taking firm roots in Keralam and in the Western Ghats generally. Such claims, however, have no semblance of truth in them, nor have such opinions anything in common with the interests of the vast oppressed masses. It is true that the movement in the Western Ghats have suffered serious losses due to the recent arrests. Comrade Murali’s arrest in particular is one of the biggest losses suffered by our Party and the CC. But to consider these losses as a reflection of the failure of the Maoist movement or the failure of the merger between CPI(Maoist) and CPI(ML) Naxalbari is to demonstrate one’s own failure to understand the real source of strength of a revolutionary movement and the real essence of a revolutionary unity. At the basis of the unity of revolutionary forces is the ideological-political line, which gets strengthened and enriched through every genuine merger. CPI(Maoist) got strengthened, the movement in the South West Region got a new boost and the new battlefront in the Western Ghats was further reinforced as a result of the merger with CPI(ML) Naxalbari.
Guided by the correct revolutionary line our Party and following correct polices and tactics, the movement in the WG zone will no doubt advance through ups and downs by boldly overcoming the temporary losses and reversals in its onward march. The CC, CPI(Maoist) appeals to the revolutionary, democratic and progressive forces of Keralam and the country – political and civil rights organisations and activists, democratic intellectuals, artistes, writers, lawyers, students and the working people to strongly condemn the illegal arrest of comrades Murali and Ismail and demand their early release so that he can avail the urgently needed medical attention. We also call upon them to intensify the efforts to release all the aged and ailing senior Maoist political prisoners detained by the Indian state in various jails of the country.
