Maoists seek to push link-up plan

Posted by Admin on July 31, 2009

K. Srinivas Reddy

Activities of Maoists in ChhattisgarhRAIPUR: The sudden surge in Maoist attacks on security forces in Chhattisgarh in the last three months points to the implementation of a plan to link up the areas under their control in adjoining Orissa, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, with their base in the Bastar forests of Chhattisgarh.

In addition to a rash of incidents targeting security forces, the increased movement of rebels in areas so far relatively peaceful has been causing concern to the Chhattisgarh government.

In four attacks in the last three months, as many as 67 personnel were killed in Jagdalpur, Dhamtari, Rajnandgaon and Dantewara districts. The death roll has even surpassed casualty figures of security forces in the North East and Kashmir, police officers say.

The spatial spread of the attacks shows that the Maoists have put in place mechanisms to spread their control beyond Abuz Maad in Bastar, and to link up their struggle areas in the neighbouring States. The rebels, however, have been unsuccessful in inching their way into Andhra Pradesh.

The latest offensive is also aimed at dousing any ardour of the para-military forces and Chhattisgarh police for taking up counter-insurgency operations. Read the rest of this entry »

Chhattisgarh: New Military base in Raipur sets stage for help to fight Maoists

Posted by Admin on July 31, 2009

PWG_ABPWith Defence Minister A K Antony giving the green signal for a new Army brigade headquarters in Raipur in Naxalite-hit Chhattisgarh, the stage is being set for the military, particularly the Rashtriya Rifles (RR), to join counter-Naxalite operations.

Raised in 1990 to fight counter-insurgency in Kashmir, the 80,000-strong RR has been operating on a temporary mandate under the Indian Army. Before this mandate expires in September, the Ministry of Defence is moving the CCS to allow RR to be deployed nationwide for counter-insurgency operations. A key step towards this came last week with Home Minister P Chidambaram’s nod allowing a permanent mandate for the RR.

The establishment of a sub-area command in Raipur and a manoeuvering range at Bilaspur — along with a training facility for Special Forces — means that troops will be stationed in Chhattisgarh as part of “confidence-building” operations. Read the rest of this entry »

Student leaders on way to Lalgarh detained

Posted by Admin on July 31, 2009

11binpur1Kolkata Police have detained seven persons who were on their way to Lalgarh from Kolkata at the Midnapore station on Thursday for interrogation.

According to the West Midnapore police, Jotiska Das and Ananya Mukherjee, students of Calcutta University; and Saumya Mondal, Raktim Ghosh and Prabuddha Ghosh, students of Jadavpur University reached Midnapore station around 10.30 am today.

Manik Mondal, a writer, and Puspendu Chatterjee, a documentary filmmaker, were also with them.

West Midnapore SP Manoj Verma said they planned to go to Lalgarh to take part in the tribal students’ movement demanding the withdrawal of police from schools.

Police asked them not to enter Lalgarh and its adjoining areas as Section 144 CrPC was imposed there. The five students are members of the United Students Democratic Front. They were interrogated by the police for an hour and released when they gave a written undertaking that they would not go to Lalgarh.

Students from Jadavpur University had visited Nandigram and Singur to express their solidarity with the movement against land acquisition.

Tribal students have started an agitation demanding the withdrawal of the State-Central forces from schools where camps have been set up for temporary accommodation of the forces.

Various students’ unions condemned the detention of the five students, saying if leaders could visit Lalgarh, students should also be allowed entry.

Maoists in CD roam mode spread the word

Rajib Chatterjee

488650357_87e4ef1f30KOLKATA, 30 JULY: In a bid to create new leaders from among youngsters CPI (Maoist) activists are taking classes to propagate ‘ultra-Left ideology’ among children residing in remote villages bordering Jharkhand with “commandants” of the outfit’s militant wing ~ People Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA) ~ giving demonstrations of their latest weapons to “prospective trainees” in the villages which the rebels refer to as “liberated zones”.

A Compact Disc (CD) showing how the Maoist leaders hold “village meetings” and give “demonstrations” of their sophisticated weapons to youths, mainly in the 14-16 age group, and their parents, has been procured by a Central Intelligence agency. The CD ~ a copy of which is available with The Statesman ~ also contained photographs of the outfit’s top leaders across the nation. It also contains a video-clipping that showed how the Maoists hold “village meetings”.

In the CD, a Maoist leader has been found delivering speech to villagers including women and children between 13 and 17 years. A makeshift martyrs’ memorial (Shahidbedi) was set up and flags of the CPI (Maoist) were planted on the ground. The leader was shown urging people to fight against “exploitation of state through its various wings including the police and the Army”. Addressing the rally, the speaker told villagers that no one would be able to exploit them further if they reject the parliamentary democracy of the country and follow the “path of revolution”.
