Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee (DKSZC) of Communist Party of India (Maoist) strongly opposes the decision by the Centre-State Governments to deploy Naga Jawans in the struggle areas of Dandakaranya. We appeal to Naga Jawans to oppose the implementation of this decision and not to come to Chhattisgarh as slaves in the service of Exploiters, raise their voices to oppose forceful deployment and express solidarity towards the Adivasi people of this region who are fighting for their very existence.
We feel it is appropriate to make Naga Jawans know that the India’s exploitative ruling classes and their representative – the Central Government – is the common enemy of Naga Nationality and India’s exploited-oppressed masses. If forcefully sent to struggle areas in spite of your opposition, perform your duties passively. Do not commit atrocities on the people. During battles, lay down your arms. In all possible ways provide us with information. We welcome the statements given by officers of Naga forces and the Naga State Congress unit in opposition to sending Naga forces to Chhattisgarh. It is well known that during the notorious militarized, well-organized, repressive fascist operation Salwa Judum too, Naga forces were sent to Chattisgarh.
Due to strong mass resistance by the struggling people of Dandakaranya and the heroic resistance by PLGA under the leadership of our party as well as due to the opposition by Naga people, families of Naga Jawans, Naga students and intellectuals, Naga agitators, civil rights organizations and activists, the Central and Naga State governments were forced to call back Naga forces from Chhattisgarh. During that time, many Naga Jawans lost their lives in people’s war and also many of them got injured. Now Naga forces are once again being used to intensify the Operation Green Hunt, which is a countrywide unjustified war on people, launched in 2009 to wipe out our Party, PLGA and people’s democratic power organs – the Revolutionary Peoples’ Committees.
It is the conspiracy of the exploitative-ruling classes that on the one hand, since decades military might is being used by the Indian Government to annihilate Naga national liberation struggle, and on the other, it is using Naga forces to suppress Dandakaranya Adivasis who are fighting for their rights over Jal-Jungle- Jameen. This policy of Divide and Rule of the British colonialists is inherited by the Indian comprador ruling classes.
Our Party from the beginning is in wholehearted support of the right of self-determination including secession of the North Eastern nationalities. It strongly opposes Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). After Modi-led BJP government came to power, it can be seen that the India’s expansionist policy is being implemented aggressively. The implementation of the agenda of Akhand Bharat is going to be speeded-up either by taking suppressive measures or by attempting to crush national liberation struggles in South Asia.
The need has arisen for all national liberation struggles of the North East to unite with India’s New Democratic Revolutionary forces. In the end, we appeal to the leading organisations of the Naga national liberation struggle and all North-Eastern national liberation struggles, civil rights activists, families of Naga Jawans – especially their mothers, friends and relatives, students and youth to wage a strong and militant mass agitations against the deployment of Naga forces in Chhattisgarh.
