Need to redefine nationalism: Binayak Sen

Posted by Admin on July 19, 2009


binayak_sen_20090526Since before Maoists were declared terrorists, Binayak Sen was treated like one for almost two years. The social activist, who works among the tribals and mine workers of Chhattisgarh was lodged in Raipur Central Jail, accused of being a Maoist conduit. His crime – being a doctor, he had agreed to treat the Naxal ideologue Narayan Sanyal. In a stunning move that one hopes is not routine, the state government clamped the dreaded Unlawful Activities Act on Sen and kept fighting against his release – without any proof, without any witness.

Released on bail and recuperating at his house after undergoing heart surgery at the Vellore Medical College, Binayak Sen tells
Zeenews.com’s Shashank Chouhan about his days in prison and how this country needs to reclaim its lost values.

Shashank: Is your case only an example of what’s happening across Chhattisgarh?

Binayak: Indeed. I have earlier also described mine as an index case- it only highlights problems in the other parts of the state. I had a lot of support from NGOs, Nobel laureates etc; think of the hapless tribals who don’t have that. Read the rest of this entry »

Lalgarh: 2 CPM men shot, posters promise more attacks

Posted by Admin on July 19, 2009


Long Live Peoples WarSukumar Mahato, TNN

19 July 2009, 04:58am IST JHARGRAM: Two CPM partymen one a zonal committee worker and the other a local-level party worker were gunned down in West Midnapore on Saturday. The needle of suspicion points to the Maoists, though there is no concrete proof yet.

The first victim was CPM Jhargram zonal committee member Jaladhar Mahato, who was on his way back home from Jhargram to Andharisole near the Kalabani forests when he was shot. Around 7.30 pm, Ashok Ghosh, a CPM worker from Goaltore’s Jirapara was killed. The two murders were preceded by a panic attack in Jhargram town as as residents of Manikpara woke up to “death warrants” against nine CPM leaders in the district. The targets include CPM’s West Midnapore district committee member Hiralal Mahato and Manikpara local secretary Shatadal Mahato.

The threat posters pasted on shops at Ramkrishna Bazar read: “CPM netader shighroi pantha boli dewa hobe (CPM leaders will be beheaded soon)”. The posters renewed the scare that had subsided after security forces moved into the area. The Maoist posters convey the decision of a Maoist gana adalat (people’s court) held at Manikpara in Jhargram. Read the rest of this entry »

Interview with Brigadier Basanth Kumar Ponwar, Director of Counter Terrorism and Jungle Warfare College

‘We will have more Lalgarhs’

lalgarh_maoists_20090619Q&A: Brigadier Basant Kumar Ponwar
R Krishna Das / New Delhi July 19, 2009, 0:10 IST

Brigadier Basant Kumar Ponwar, the army’s counter-Naxalite expert and director of Counter Terrorism and Jungle Warfare College, tells R KRISHNA DAS that this is the right time to destroy the rebels militarily and dismantle their network.

The Union government has imposed a ban on Naxalites. How effective will this be in tackling the problem?
Very effective. Now, there will be one rule across the country that will help the states reeling under the problem to coordinate better. Now, Naxalites have been bracketed with terrorist groups, including Lashkar E-Toiba. This will help the army (if required) take action against Naxalites.

Chhattisgarh and a few other states had earlier banned Naxalites and their frontal organisations. But this did not yield results
In Chhattisgarh, the Special Public Security Act helped authorities take action against the rebels’ sympathisers. The Naxalite movement cannot be seen only as an armed movement. A number of intellectuals, including experts from different fields, are associated with them. They may not be directly involved in operations but they help Naxalites one way or the other. Chhattisgarh was fighting alone as Naxalites used to slip into other states after committing crimes. Read the rest of this entry »

Bimal: Interview with “One of the Most Wanted Persons” in India

Posted by Admin on July 19, 2009


maoist forces in IndiaThis is an interview with Bimal, a leader and Politburo member of the Communist Party of India (Maoist). It was conducted with correspondents The Times of India, April 27, 2009 and then published by People’s Truth.

WE WANT A SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT PATH AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH TRAJECTORY THAT WON’T DIVEST THE POOR FROM THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

You are one of the most wanted persons of the country. Even Left Front Chairman Biman Bose announced months ago that you have entered Bangal from Jharkhand. What made you come here?

(Smiles) I am not new to this terrain.

I first came to Bengal from Dandakaranya in 1995.. I have been to the villages in Lalgarh in West Midnapore in 1998. The Bengal-Jharkhand-Orissa (BJO) border zone, as well as North Bengal, has been our priority. North Bengal — which would give us access to the North-East, Bangladesh and Bhutan. But we chose the BJO because that is part of a contiguous forest cover spread over Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Bengal and Bihar. Read the rest of this entry »
