Janhastakshep, Campaign Against Fascist Designs, People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) and People’s Union for Democratic Rights (PUDR) held a public meeting “No to use of Army & Air Force Against Naxalites” on the 24th October, 2009 (Saturday) at Constitution Club, New Delhi. The meeting was attended by a wide spectrum of people from political parties, intellectuals and political activists such as Mr. Surendra Mohan, Prof. Manoranjan Mohanty, Shamshul Islam and many others. Many attendees had to sit at the aisles because of the large number of people who had come to attend.

Noted poet Pankaj Singh gave the introductory note, he emphasized on how the state and ruling parties are seriously attempting to distort our perceptions and notions in labeling the growing Naxal movement as “the single biggest threat to internal security”. The reality it is that it is the failure of the state and governance in India which are the biggest threat to the life and livelihood of millions and the army and air force are wrongly being used as means to resolve issues of bad governance.

Professor Randhir Singh emphasized, that those who condemn violence do not only condemn excesses but also demand an acceptance of the qualities of the current state. “Radical politics and extra parliamentary tools have to be emphasized, people have a right to choose their preferred method of resisting oppression. Today, the Maoists and Naxalites represent the dream for justice and a better future by those millions who have been marginalized by society and the ruling party’s plans to use the army to fight against them will be disastrous for the country”.

Maoists regrouping in Andhra Pradesh

Posted by Admin on October 25, 2009


The mammoth rally of Maoist supporters came from several parts of Andhra Pradesh at the Maoist rally in Hyderabad on Thursday. The historic rally after 14 years is conducted by the Maoist outfit.   SEPT-30/2004

The mammoth rally of Maoist supporters came from several parts of Andhra Pradesh at the Maoist rally in Hyderabad on Thursday. The historic rally after 14 years is conducted by the Maoist outfit. SEPT-30/2004

HYDERABAD: An aggressive push by the government post 2004 might have blunted Maoist insurgency, but the rebels are suspected to be regrouping ina big way raising the sceptre of fresh violence in Andhra Pradesh. If documents claimed to have been recovered by intelligence agencies are to be believed, the top Maoist leadership is concentrating on reviving the movement particularly in North Telangana.

Intelligence sources claim that there is increased movement in areas where the guerrillas have sought refuge along the North Telangana forest border with Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. Highly-placed sources told TOI that the Maoist party is planning to restore its glory in North Telangana by launching agitations against open cast mines of Singareni Collieries, an issue which is likely to have local support. Towards this end, the extremist party has reactivated its frontal organisation, Singareni Karmika Samakya (Sikasa), which has a strong presence among the coal miners.

“The strategy is to keep one arm of movement above the ground and another below the ground,” analysts said. The recent spurt in Maoist attacks in Karimnagar, Adilabad and Warangal districts is an indication that they are on their comeback trail. Sources said the rebels could resort to ambushes and surprise attacks in the coming days what with top Maoist Mupalla Lakshmana Rao alias Ganapathi talking about revival of the movement in North Telangana.

In fact, party central committee leader Mallojula Koteshwar Rao alias Kishanji recently made it clear that his party would fight against Singareni Collieries management’s decision to dig open cast mines. Sikasa organising secretary Janjipalli Sridhar even issued a statement in Mancherial warning Congress and TDP leaders of dire consequences for supporting SCCL. “The Maoists have changed their strategies. The open cast mining issue has come in handy for them to attract coal miners to their fold,” a police official said. Read the rest of this entry »

Congress General secretary Digvijay Singh against Maoist drive

Posted by Admin on October 25, 2009


Digvijay against Maoist drive
OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT

New Delhi, Oct. 24: As the Centre gears for its anti-Maoist offensive, debate and scepticism continue in the Congress.

General secretary Digvijay Singh is the latest to publicly express fears that Operation Green Hunt may end up as a war against “our own people” if not backed up with socio-economic and legislative measures to improve tribals’ plight.

He has emphasised the disconnect between the administration and the people living in Maoist zones, and pointed to the exploitation that drove the tribals into the rebels’ arms.

Digvijay’s views, expressed through a newspaper article, reflect the deep disquiet in the party at the home ministry’s muscle-flexing. Sources revealed that Ajit Jogi, former chief minister of Maoist heartland Chhattisgarh, too had written to the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi expressing similar doubts.

Jogi has been a vocal critic of the Salwa Judum (anti-Maoist vigilantes) experiment in Chhattisgarh and believes the rebels cannot be defeated without first winning over the villagers sympathetic to them. Digvijay too has written about his experiences in Bastar, detailing how the government has vacated the space for the armed mercenaries.

Many Congress leaders privately express surprise why the subject was not debated at an appropriate party forum when senior leaders were expressing their doubts through letters and newspaper articles. Read the rest of this entry »

Stop Offensive, Hold Unconditional Dialogue

CALL FROM NATIONAL CONVENTION OF CITIZENS INITIATIVE FOR PEACE

The Government has launched a major offensive in the tribal belt of Central India where the Maoists are active. These are the poorest areas in the country where people have been alienated by exploitation and deprivation of resources. The Government must realise that Maoism is the outcome of their own failure to resolve the problems of the people in these areas. Further, they have actively acted against the interests of the people by forcibly acquiring their land, displacing them for mega projects and violating their basic constitutional rights.

A silent hunt for dissent

Posted by Admin on October 25, 2009


22dissent0110 am, October 12 — Jagdalpur, Bastar district headquarters town in Chhattisgarh, looks like a ghost town. Large areas around the collector’s office have been cordoned off. Around 50 tribals sit in a hall waiting for a public hearing of the environmental impact assessment report of Tata Steel’s proposed Rs 10,000-crore greenfield steel project in the district’s Lohandiguda block.It’s noon by the time officials of the district administration and Tata Steel arrive. Sashi Bhu­shan Prasad, head of Tata’s environmental division, is presenting the report. His start is dramatic: “One hundred and twenty-five years ago, Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata had a dream for a village in Jharkhand, and that is Jamshedpur. It was many times worse than our Bastar.”

This is followed by, “Carbon steel…electrostatic precipitators…sodium and nitrogen oxides…automatic combustion control systems. Our technology will be better than the best in the world or at least equivalent. I will skip the technical things because you won’t appreciate them.”The audience pays no attention. For a project that will take up around 5,000 acres of tribal land comprising 11 villages, use a large quantity of water from the river Sabari and will pollute the Indravati, the audience is surprisingly disinterested. After the presentation, the collector asks if there is any objection. Total silence. No one has any objection, but Tata’s project has not progressed beyond paper work and presentations since it signed an MoU with the state government in 2005. Read the rest of this entry »
