Lalgarh: 5 School Students arrested in connection with CPIM leader’s murder, Villagers on sit-in strike infront of Police station

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009

LalagarhLalgarh, Aug 02 (UNI) : Barely hours after Maoists gunned down a CPI(M) activist at Chirugora village under Belpahari police station, another CPI(M) leader was killed by the Moaists at Amdanga under Lalgarh police station in West Midnapore district late last night.

Anil Mahato, brother of PCPA leader Chatradhar Mahato, along with five school students were arrested in this connection, the SP informed.

Hundreds of PCPA workers, demanding the release of the arrested leader and the students, have gone on a sit-in strike in front of the Lalgarh police station. They have also blocked the main road between Lalgarh and Ramgarh placing huge boulders.

Meanwhile, the road stretch between Chilgora and Sirshi was dug up by the PCPA, not allowing any police movement from Midnapore district headquarters towards Lalgarh.

Earlier, a group of 30 Maoists, in two action squads, came out of Khankrajhore forest at about 2130 hours last night and gunned down CPI(M) activist Kalipada Singh (40) at Chirugora village under Belpahari police station. Singh was an influential member of the Ganatantrik Pratirodh Committee set up by the party to tackle the Maoist influence in the area. The Telegraph

Maoists’ backed tribals hold rally in Orissa

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009

india-3July 5th: BANDHUGAON – Hundreds of tribals staged a rally in Bandhugaon in Orissa’s Koraput district on Saturday asserting their right on land.

The tribals, with the backing of the Maoists, accused the non-tribals of grabbing their land.

The Maoists have been reportedly instigating tribals to forcefully acquire the land belonging to non-tribals. They are against the acquisition of tribal land for establishing multinational companies.

“The Adivasis (tribals) in Koraput are fighting for their land rights, their rights of livelihood, their right to live in this district and this place. From Koraput and from other districts of Orissa Adivasis are being displaced. The areas are being given to multinationals,” said Vijay Kumar, a local resident. Read the rest of this entry »

Chhattisgarh: Activists worried about Military intervention against Maoists

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009

Lalgarh While Maoist sympathisers and their overground organizations are already crying hoarse about how the Centre will storm the Maad forests in September, even human rights activists and neutral observers are worried about the collateral damage — the tribal people in the forests of Maad — should the Centre indeed launch the offensive.

Writer and activist Arundhati Roy, who is just back from a visit to the troubled Dantewada region, says there are all telltale signs of an imminent massive military operation in the jungles of Chhattisgarh.

“As soon as the monsoon is over, the government is prepared to storm the forests. When I was there, I saw huge, newly-constructed roads running through the forests. Who are these roads for? Definitely not for the tribal people to walk on. It is for the troops to be moved and once the operation is over, for the steel to be moved to Paradip (in Orissa, the nearest port), from where they will be shipped to China,” she said.

She added that at least 25,000 troops have been trained at the Jungle Warfare School in Kanker and are ready to storm the forests.

“The two people who are behind this are P Chidambaram and National Security Advisor M K Narayanan. We should remember that Chidambaram was the lawyer for Enron. He was on the board of Vedanta, one of the biggest mining companies in the world,” she pointed out. Read the rest of this entry »

Banned Thought: Collection of the CPI (Maoist) Documents

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009 has a great collection of interviews and documents from the CPI (Maoist) here

Well done! The Maoists are a fairly shadowy organisation and tracking documents and/or statements from the Party itself is a bit of challenge.

This site is a solid source of primary information and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the Naxalites world-view and their tactical/strategic analysis.                Source: Naxal War

Lalgarh ‘not stable’ Maoists still influential: Union Home Minister

Posted by Admin on August 2, 2009

LalgarhNEW DELHI: Noting that Maoists still have “pockets of influence” in Lalgarh, Government Saturday said the situation in the strife-torn area in West Bengal was not stable but maintained that paramilitary forces cannot be deployed there indefinitely.

Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said state police will have to take responsibilities for maintaining law and order in the Naxal-hit area in West Midnapore district.

“Seven weeks since the paramilitary forces were deployed at the request of state government in Lalgarh, the situation has still not stabilised.

Maoists still continue to have pockets of influence and suspected to be behind in some recent acts of violence,” he told reporters.

Chidambaram said the Centre has made it clear to the state government that paramilitary forces are available for deployment but “such deployment cannot be for indefinite period” and the state police has to take the responsibility of maintaining law and order.

On a separate Gorkhaland state, the minister said the Centre has invited Gorkha Janmukti Morcha for a tripartite discussion on August 11 to find a solution to the issue. PTI

RANCHI: Suspected Maoists on Saturday set two mini-trucks carrying vegetables on fire at Patamda in East Singhbhum district on the Jharkhand-Bengal border for “violation” of the two-day bandh call given by the rebels against price rise.

The Maoists also deflated tyres of some autorickshaws plying on the road and opened fire in the air as a  warning to others.

The Maoist called a two-day Jharkhand bandh beginning Thursday midnight to protest against the skyrocketing price of essential commodities, including vegetables.

Sources said in the wee hours of Friday, when the mini-trucks were on their way to Jamshepdur, about 20 armed Maoists stopped the vehicles and asked the drivers and helpers to alight. The vehicles were then set on fire in which one of the mini-trucks was badly damaged and the other was burnt partially. Read the rest of this entry »
