Manipur: UNLF calls for unity, collective fight
Posted by Admin on November 27, 2009
Imphal, November 25 2009: The ‘Naxalite Movement’ that began in 1967 led by the then Communist Party of India (ML) had undergone a tortuous path of factions and groupings before reuniting ultimately as the CPI (Maoist).
Now the Maoists have consolidated their mass base in seven States of mainland India which cover about 25 percent of the Indian landmass.
With the rapid expansion of the capitalist economy of India during the past 42 years, class contradictions have sharpened to the level of breaking out a social revolution.
Thus it would not be far fetched to observe that the Maoist revolution has taken firm roots among the exploited classes of India which has grown beyond the suppressive power of the feudal-bourgeois Indian state.
The Maoist revolution being based on the exploited peasantry and the proletariat has the force of 75 percent of the Indian population.
So when just about 35 percent out of the 75 percent join the revolution actively and spread into the urban areas, the complexion of the Indian revolution will acquire a qualitative change.
And when the chronic social division of caste contradiction in Indian society is transformed into class contradiction, when all the exploited classes who have been deprived of their share of economic development join the revolution led by the CPI(Maoist), distinct conditions for the success of the Indian revolution would emerge.
Thus, the sharpening of internal contradictions weakening India’s inner strength and the emergence of the CPI(Maoist), which recognised the sovereignty of Manipur, as a powerful revolutionary force in India are favourable factors for the liberations struggles of Manipur and the entire region as a whole, the outfit asserted.
Notwithstanding the difference in specific conditions and objectives, there is a common interest in the fight against the Indian state by the CPI (Maoist) and the liberation struggles of Manipur and the region.
Guided by this perspective, the UNLF would actively pursue a policy of mutual help and support with the Indian revolution through the CPI(Maoist). E-Pao
