Banned Maoist Magazine People’s March is Coming Back

Posted by Admin on August 31, 2009


cover-mainOn 7th August 2009 the Hon’ble Press & Registration Appellate Board, New Delhi set aside the order dated 15-01-2009 of the District Collector, Ernakulam canceling the Declaration furnished by People’s March which was forwarded to The Registrar of Newspapers for India, Delhi. It showed the utter vindictiveness of the Government/ State to suppress the views hostile to it. People’s march has uncompromisingly stood on the side of the oppressed, exploited masses and the middle classes of our country who comprise an overwhelming 90% of our population.

The Government/State represents the mere microscopic moneybags of this country and their agents and hangers-on who comprise barely 5% of the population. Both stand in direct conflict to each other. But the interests of the country must and always be the interests of its bulk population. Before the Appelate Board stood a lawyer paid by the Government. On the other side stood me the Editor without any lawyer. The Government/State has no answer for the arguments and grounds put forth by me in my appeal as to under which clause under Section 8 B of the Press and Registration of Books Act 1867 the Declaration furnished by me was cancelled. After a few minutes ofsilence by the Government advocate

The Press & Registration appellate Board set aside the order of theCollector, Ernakulam. A copy of the order is awaited.Likewise after my illegal & arbitrary arrest and release on baileven after 21 months the Government/ State charge sheets were not filed. Butthe cases foisted on me are pending as a form of threat.It is clear that both the arrest and the banning of the non publishing magazine while I was under custodytogether with the earlier banning of the website http://www.peoplesmarch.com was nothing but a crude attempt by the Government/State to stifle the freedom of speech in this fake democratic setup.

AP: Naxal fear haunts IPS men

Hyderabad, Aug. 30: IPS officers who earlier worked in Naxal-hit areas and now in the loopline are now feeling the heat due a series of steps taken by the police department.
It all started with the transfer of officers who are in the Naxal hitlist in police training centres, police academies and in non-focal jobs where they are provided less security when compared to mainstream cops.

SP Mahesh Chandra Ladda, who escaped a Maoist attack in Ongole town while serving as Prakasam SP, was posted as head of Police Training Centre in Warangal. Similarly, Mr Madhsudhan Reddy, who was Nizamabad SP during Manala encounter, was posted as Vizaianagaram PTC head.

The Andhra-Orissa border, including Vizainagaram, is still the hotbed of Naxal movement. Warangal was once the epicentre of Naxalism in North Telangana region.
A senior police officer said, “When IPS officers are unit heads, they can manage their own security. But in loopline, they may become easy prey to Naxals.”
Even the AP Police Academy has no compound wall now. Due to the Outer Ring Road work, the compound wall has been partly removed and it poses a serious threat to officers posted at the academy.

The IPS officers who are posted in APPA has to travel 25 km to reach their office. On the route, they are exposed to attacks. After the death of armed constable P. Muralinath, the police headquarters issued orders stripping senior cops of additional cars which they were using. The extra gunmen of senior IPS officer, Mr T. Krishna Prasad, were removed recently. “Old bullet-proof cars often bre- ak down. We need to board the other car following us. Now, there is no option. We have to take an autorickshaw,” said an IPS official. DC

At night, Maoists rule Lalgarh

Posted by Admin on August 31, 2009


Lalgarg_21072009On paper, Operation Lalgarh is still on. But in the villages, the Maoists’ writ runs supreme. And their circle of dominance and terror is growing. Caesar Mandal reports

The veneer of security is stretched too thin over the Maoist badlands of Bengal. And it can often be deceptive. On paper, the Lalgarh Operation that started on June 18 to flush out Maoists is still on. Guns at the ready, the forces are stationed at the outposts. The tarred roads are still being patrolled. But once the sun wanes and the shadows lengthen, the Maoist guerrillas take over.

Policemen and jawans stationed in the three districts of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia bordering Bihar and Jharkhand a vast 2,100 sq km terrain of field and forest are aware of this imbalance of power. As are the villagers. So, the indefinite bandh by the Maoists over the past fortnight has been near-total. Read the rest of this entry »

Lalgarh: We’ll fight for Jangalkhand autonomy: PCPA

Like the Gorkha and Koch outfits in North Bengal, Peoples Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA) the tribal organization in Jangalkhand in
south Bengal has raised the call for autonomy.

Speaking exclusively to TOI from his hideout near Lalgarh, wanted PCPA leader Chhatradhar Mahato declared, “We, the sons of the soil, want the rights to the land, jungle and water of Jangalkhand. We want total autonomy because our people and land should be ruled by us.” He did not rule out the possibility of a statehood demand. ” We will soon set up an united ethnic platform to raise our demand for autonomy.” This is the first time the tribal leadership has expressed a clear autonomy demand.

With this fresh issue, PCPA which had emerged as a resistance group to counter police excess in the far-flung tribal villages has morphed into a full-fledged ethnic organization. Read the rest of this entry »
