Maoist leader Kishanji vows to intensify struggle

Posted by Admin on October 4, 2009

KOLKATA: Maoist military strategist Koteswar Rao alias Kishanji has vowed to carry on the war against the state administration until a "liberated zone" is carved out in Jangalmahal.

He also said that the arrest of Chhatradhar Mahato would not cripple the PCPA movement, as the organization had other competent members to lead it.

While disowning any direct connection with PCPA, Kishanji said Maoists did extend moral support to the movement."Our ideology is different from that of PCPA. But police are treating Chhatradhar like a criminal. They blindfolded him and took him to the CID office in Kolkata for leading a democratic movement for tribals fighting for their rights," he said, adding that Jangalmahal had leaders capable of filling in Chhatradhar’s shoes. "The people will continue their struggle with greater intensity," he said.

Kishanji also hinted at a major retaliation against the state and CPM, naming two district CPM leaders in West Midnapore as their immediate target.

He was critical of the role of intellectuals who had slammed the killings in Jangalkhand but remained silent on Mahato’s arrest. "Across the state, several people have been killed in political clashes between democratic’ parties like CPM and Trinamool Congress. It happened in Nandigram. But intellectuals did not retract their support. Instead, many campaigned directly for a political party," he said.

He appealed to intellectuals to support the Lalgarh movement and not be dissuaded by police’s attempt to brand the PCPA spokesperson and his aides as Maoist accomplices.

Justifying the killings by Maoists in the recent past, the rebel leader argued: "The murders were needed to protect the democratic movement organized by the masses of Jangalmahal. Only those people were killed who conspired to paralyze the movement led by tribals."

But he did not take responsibility for all murders in Jangalmahal since the Lalgarh uprising in November 2008. Many killings, he said, were the spontaneous outcome of mob fury against corruption. TOI
