Police launch anti-terror operations in Istanbul

Anti-terror police have launched separate operations in Istanbul against the Patriotic Revolutionary Youth Movement (YDG-H) and the outlawed Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party-Front (DHKP-C). Some 15 suspects were detained in the operations launched against the DHKP-C in Istanbul’s Gazi neighborhood on Sept. 12. A number of guns and documents were seized at the homes raided by the police. Tensions escalated in the area and clashes erupted between the security forces and protesters. Police used tear gas to disperse the groups while TOMAs (riot control vehicles) and armored vehicles were also dispatched to the area.

A group managed to escape the neighborhood and headed directly to the Mimar Sinan city forest. The protesters, who were said to have guns, set a security cabin alight at the entrance of the forest when security officers from the recreational area tried to disperse them. When the firefighters arrived at the scene the cabin at the entrance was already completely burnt. Meanwhile, some 20 suspects who were detained in another operation against the YDG-H on Sept. 12, a youth organization linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), were transferred to court after undergoing medical examinations.



Turkey police fire gas at protests over worker lift deaths

Turkish riot police on Sunday fired tear gas and water cannon at protesters in Istanbul, a day after 10 workers were killed when a lift crashed to the ground from the 32nd storey of a building, AFP reports. Police stepped in when more than 1,000 people gathered near the construction site in Istanbul’s upscale Mecidiyekoy district to express their anger at Turkey’s lax workplace safety measures, an AFP photographer at the scene reported. “This is not an accident, this is not a destiny, this is murder!” the crowd shouted, at the first major confrontation between demonstrators and the authorities since Recep Tayyip Erdogan was inaugurated as president last month.

Authorities said an investigation had been launched into the incident at the Torunlar Centre, which is being built on the former site of Galatasaray football club’s Ali Sami Yen stadium. The exact cause of the accident remains unclear. There have been claims that the elevator broke down two weeks ago and that workers were awaiting funds to repair it. “I lost my two sons,” said father-of-six Mithat Kara, as he sat in tears at the side of the construction site. Among the dead was also 21-year old student Hidir Ali Genc, who used to work at construction sites to fund his university expenses. The incident created a storm on social media, with users criticising the government’s handling of the protest. “State, answer to industrial accidents. Workers respond by making barricades,” one Twitter user wrote.

Sudan Workers Union Supports Darfur Teachers’ Strike

El Fasher / Ed Daein / Khartoum — The strike of the 1,100 secondary school teachers in El Fasher locality, North Darfur, entered its fifth day on Wednesday. In East Darfur State, the comprehensive strike of basic and secondary school teachers continued without any signs indicating that the problem will be resolved soon. For four consecutive days, agents of the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) in El Fasher, capital of North Darfur, summoned the eight members of the Teachers Committee.

“They kept the teachers from the morning until the evening, interrogating them on the reasons for the strike”, Mohamed Makki Saleh, former director of El Wihda Secondary School in El Fasher, told Radio Dabanga. “The security officers consider the strike an illegal act, suspecting it to be politically motivated. The eight committee members denied this claim, and said that they resorted to the strike after having exhausted all other means to obtain their financial dues.” “The strike of the teachers of the 39 secondary schools in El Fasher locality has nothing to do with politics”, Saleh stated.


Mining protest in La Oroya leads to tear gas

Hundreds of residents in northern Peru´s Yauli district were involved in a protest against the Chinalco minery.

Thousands of Farmers Protest Mine Projects in Myanmar’s Shan State

Some 3,000 farmers in northeastern Myanmar’s Shan state gathered Friday to protest against commercial mining operations they say have permanently damaged local waterways and farmland, destroying their livelihoods. Protesters in Namhkam township near the border with China said that waste from the Ngwe Kabar Kyaw company’s large-scale silica mining projects over the past two years have contaminated a nearby stream and ruined some 100 acres (40 hectares) of land used to grow crops. “About 3,000 farmers took part in the protest, during which we marched along the stream and some leaders gave speeches,” a protester named Sai Kwam Khay told RFA’s Myanmar Service.




The six mountains’ lackey, the reactionary Awami League is saying of establishing Socialism through Mujiv-ism. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists, Kaji-Rono-Amol Sen, Deben-Bashar also are saying of Socialism and declared solidarity with Mujiv-ist Socialism. The Rob group (presently the National Socialist Party) is saying of class struggle, social revolution and scientific Socialism. Mowlanda Vashani is saying of Islamic Socialism.

The Indian expansionists too are saying about establishing Socialism. The Soviet Social Imperialists and their revisionist lackeys are also saying about Socialism. The talking and activities of those different forms of so called socialists made confusion among the people about Socialism. Many of the people are being deceived as a result. Therefore it has been urgent necessity to make distinction between genuine and false and reactionary Socialism domestically and internationally, and unmask the false and reactionary Socialism in front of people to show their real traitor and lackey face.

2. Emergence of Socialism

In Europe, the capitalist production system was borne in feudalist society. The development of this new production system was regularly obstructed by feudalism and at a certain period, its development was impossible without the overthrow of feudalism. Right at that moment, revolution of overthrowing feudalism occurred and established capitalist social system. In capitalist system, workers and owners (that is the bourgeoisie) was created. The theory of Socialism first emeged in the course of absolute suffereings of workers, rapid fall of feudalism and breaking apart of the petit bourgeoisie. In this way, petit bourgeoisie Socialism, feudalist Socialism, feudal aristocratic Socialism emerged.

Then comes the utopian socialists. They showed the sufferings of workers and poor’s of the society, said that it is worse; some said that the older society was better. Some indulged in day-dream to solve this condition, but none could find the origin of the condition of the society and its way out. This is Karl Marx who first discovered the law of social development, found the errors other Socialism had and produced the theory of scientific Socialism. Marx and Engels in their whole life carried uncompromising struggle against all forms of false and reactionary Socialism and defeated and smashed the theories of those so called Socialism.

3. Theoretical basis of Socialism

Socialism of all the socialists prior to Marx was utopian and unreal because still modern industries and working class did not develop. The working class did not understand the essence of capitalism, nor the relation of exploitation between capitalist and working class, and own historic mission. The working class would destroy machineries and used to carry spontaneous struggle. About that situation, Engels said, “This historical situation also dominated the founders of Socialism. To the crude conditions of capitalistic production and the crude class conditions correspond crude theories.”

“In the course of development of capitalism, its victory over feudalism, development of science and organized and conscious economic and political struggle of the working class, it could understand the essence of the capitalist society and realized the relation of exploitation between the classes and own historic mission. Marx and Engels summed up it and produced Marxism.” [2] Marx-Engels struggled against utopian Socialism and different other unscientific, unreal Socialism and established the victory of the theory of Socialism. Marxism was accepted as the only guiding theoretical basis of the world working class.

The bourgeoisie and their agents, being failed to directly defeat Marxism, disguised themselves as Marxist and tried to distort and correct Marxism from the interest of the bourgeoisie. They are known as revisionist and opportunist in communist movement. After the death of Marx, Engels carried the struggle against the so called Socialism of the revisionists and opportunists. After Engels died, the revisionists captured the leadership of political parties of the working class of almost all the countries and made those parties protector of the interest of the bourgeoisie. Great Lenin carried uncompromising struggle against the lackeys of the bourgeoisie, the revisionists and opportunists, overthrew the distortions of Marxist scientific Socialism, defended and established Marxism.

Marx solved the problems of the era of development of capitalism. Capitalism developed and reached to its highest stage of development, imperialism. Great Lenin discovered the law of social development of that era, solved the problems of Social Revolution and for the first time made the working class leading seizure of power in Russia, established Dictatorship of Proletariat, and for the first time in world, established a socialist state.

Thus Lenin defended Marxism, developed it and raised it to the stage of Leninism. After Lenin’s death, Stalin defended the purity of Marxism-Leninism by carrying struggle against the opportunists and revisionists; transformed backward agro based Soviet Union into a modern industrial based Soviet Union and smashed fascism in the Second World War. After the Second World War, in Great China, Chinese Communist Party, led by Chairman Mao Tsetung seized power. In Asia, proletariat seized power in North Korea, North Vietnam, and in Europe in Albania, Rumania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland, East Germany etc. Countries. Thus, one third of the world people took the path of Socialist Social System.

After the death of Stalin, modern revisionists [3] led by Khrushchev captured power of the Soviet Union ,transformed the Soviet Socialist State into a Social Imperialist State, restored capitalism in the country, carried fascist suppression and transformed the Soviet Communist Party into a Bourgeoisie Fascist Party. The Soviet revisionists are making counterrevolutionary effort to restore capitalism in different socialist countries. In many of those countries, they have been able to restore capitalism, made them own colonies or dependent countries [4]. They are making vile effort to smash pure Socialist Countries.

They are helping the hoax of Socialism of the opportunists and bourgeoisie of different countries, and defending that. Chairman Mao Tsetung fought against the revision and distortion of Marxism-Leninism by the modern revisionists and opportunists, defended Marxism-Leninism, solved the problems of revolution of the Era of Collapse of Imperialism and the Era of Social Imperialism, and raised Marxism-Leninism to the stage of Mao Tsetung Thought. This is why, the theoretical basis of present era Scientific Socialism is Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tstung Thought. Without taking Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought as theoretical basis, there can be no Scientific Socialism.

The victory of the theory and path of Socialism in different countries made that theory and path popular worldwide and the workers-peasants masses have taken it as the only path of their liberation. To seize the opportunity of popularity of the theory and path of Socialism, the exploiting classes and lackeys have disguised themselves as socialist, and are making futile attempt to carry National Treachery and Fascism by posing themselves under socialist label. The Awami League fascists took Six Points program and later in the name of bringing independence, made the country subordinate to others. Then, they don’t have any program.

Because of the popularity of Socialism and own programlessness, they are making futile attempt to deceive the masses and sustain themselves by mongering the phrase of Socialism. They are speaking of establishing the so called Socialism through National Treachery and Fascism that is Mujiv-ism. The Awami League fascists make such bogus logic: “If Marx can establish Marxism, Lenin can establish Leninism, Mao Tsetung can establish Maoism, why can’t we establish Mujiv-ism and establish Socialism through that.” Thus, by taking the opportunity of the popularity of Socialism, the Mujiv-ists, in the name of establishing Socialism, are making evil effort to resist the course of establishing genuine Socialism.

The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists, other than fighting against Mujiv-ist Socialist Hoax and unmasking them, have declared solidarity with that. Huq-Toha, Motin-Alauddin, Deben-Bashar, Kaji-Rono other than unmasking Islamic Socialism of the Petit Bourgeoisie Feudalist Socialist Mowlana Vashani, have been Tailing behind him sine long. Some of them have declared solidarity with Mujiv-ists too. The Rob group, without accepting Marxism-Leninism as theoretical basis, is deceiving people by saying Socialism. Thus, they, by taking the opportunity of unpopularity of the Mujiv-ists and the popularity of Socialism, are saying of establishing Scientific Socialism, making effort of seizing power and resisting the course of establishing genuine scientific Socialism.

The declaration in the Conference of the Communist Party representatives in 1957 in Moscow and the 80 party Representative Conferences held in Moscow in 1960 called for uncompromising struggle against such type of Socialists. The modern revisionists and other revisionists, by not waging hard struggle against those so called Bourgeoisie Reactionary and Imperialist Lackey Socialists, are defending them, tailing behind them and betraying with Domestic and International Communist Movement. The theoretical basis of those so called socialists is to deceive people, justify exploitation and plunder by the domestic and international exploiters under label of Socialism, sustain that, make confusion among the people about the theory of Socialism, make that unpopular to them and inflict damage to the Domestic and International Communist Movement.

4. Social Stage and Revolution

Marxism teaches us that society advance through its own law of development. Society advances from Primitive Communist Society to Slave Society, Slave Society to Feudal Society, Feudal Society to Capitalist Society, Capitalist Society to Socialist Society, Socialist Society to Communist Society, and the Communist Society constantly develops to higher stages of Communism. According to the law of social development, Social Revolution also occurs. It is a free from human will material law that revolution will be carried according to the present stage of East Bengal society in its social development.

In East Bengal, colonial exploitation of the Indian expansionists exists, as well as the exploitation of Soviet Social Imperialists, US-led imperialist countries and their lackeys, and that of the remnants of feudalists. This why East Bengal is a Colonial-Semi Feudal country, that is, National Democratic Revolution of East Bengal remained unfinished. In order to reach East Bengal society to the capitalist stage, the Indian Expansionism, Soviet Social Imperialism, US-led Imperialism and their lackeys have to be overthrown by National Revolution, and Feudalism has to be overthrown by Democratic Revolution. That means, the incomplete National Democratic Revolution must be completed.

This is why the revolution that corresponds to the present Colonial-Semi Feudal stage of society of East Bengal is National Democratic Revolution. The National Democratic Revolution will end foreign exploitation that is the end of foreign competition in East Bengal Market, end feudalism and that will create the condition for bourgeoisie development. That is why National Democratic Revolution is a Bourgeoisie Democratic one, the target of which is to create the condition of development of Capitalism, that is, to raise Society to the stage of Capitalism.

The principal contradiction of that capitalist society is Bourgeoisie versus Working Class (The National Democratic Revolution on the hand resolve National contradiction with international exploiters, and peasants’ contradiction with domestic feudalism on the other, consequently the contradiction bourgeoisie versus working class becomes principal). Socialist Revolution corresponds to the capitalist social stage. This is why only after accomplishing National Democratic Revolution, Socialist Revolution (the revolution of overthrowing capitalism) can be initiated and guided. Chairman Mao said, “The Democratic and the Socialist Revolutions are two essentially different Revolutionary processes, and the second process can be carried through only after the first has been completed.” [5]

That is, only after completing National Democratic Revolution, Socialist Revolution can be guided and completed. One can reach to the second floor of a building after crossing the first floor. The Six Mountains’ Lackey Bourgeoisie is saying of establishing Socialism through Mujiv-ism. What does that signify? In East Bengal, colonial exploitation of Indian Expansionists; Imperialist and Social Imperialist exploitation and internal feudal exploitation exists. The Mujiv-ists by saying of Socialism without overthrowing those, are actually sustaining the subservience of East Bengal and her Feudal character and are sub-serving the Six Mountains.

The Rob group is saying of establishing Scientific Socialism. Other than saying of completing unfinished National Democratic Revolution, by saying Scientific Socialism, they want to capture power via overthrow of Mujiv-ists, and want to establish colony of US Imperialism, sustain exploitation by the pro US section of India and the East Bengal Feudalists. Saying of Socialism without making of National Democratic Revolution is a Trotskyte deviation. At the present era, the Trotskytes are directed by the US led Imperialism. By saying of Socialism without making of National Democratic Revolution of East Bengal, the Rob group is proving that they are Trotskyte and are directed by the US-led imperialists. East Bengal is a Colony of India. Here exists exploitation of Indian Expansionism, Soviet Social Imperialism and US led imperialism.

At present, the main struggle in East Bengal is National Struggle, that is the struggle to make East Bengal independent through overthrowing Indian Expansionism and its lackeys and at the same time, Soviet Social Imperialism and its lackeys and US led Imperialism and its lackeys. That means, between the National and Democratic aspect of the unfinished National Democratic Revolution, National Revolution is principal. The workers-peasants-petit bourgeoisie masses of East Bengal, by being united with patriotic bourgeoisie and patriotic feudalists, are carrying National Struggle. Consequently, Peasants’ struggle against the patriotic feudalists, and the struggle of workers against the patriotic bourgeoisie became secondary, and the unity among those classes got prominence (As the type of unity among different patriotic classes and sections in East Bengal during anti Pak Military Fascist National Liberation Struggle).

Therefore, by saying of Class Struggle, the Rob group actually is opposing National Struggle of East Bengal and trying to keep far aside the vision of people from Indian Expansionism, Social Imperialism and Imperialism, and making effort of destroying the struggling unity of the whole nation of East Bengal against them. Thus, the Rob group, in the name of class struggle, are making futile attempt to sustain Indian Expansionism, Soviet Social Imperialism, US-led Imperialism, that is, to keep East Bengal subordinate to others. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar modern revisionist and their master the Soviet Social Imperialists are supporting Socialism through Mujiv-ism.

That means they recognize that the Bourgeoisie Democratic Revolution of East Bengal has been completed. The meaning of that is that there is no Colonial Exploitation of Indian Expansionism in East Bengal, nor there is any Soviet Social Imperialist, US led Imperialist or Internal Feudalist exploitation. It proves that they are sub-serving the foreign exploiters, their domestic lackeys and feudalists. They are national traitor and servant of feudalism. Therefore, they are lackeys of Awami League. People correctly call them as ‘B’ team. Kaji-Rono and Deben-Bashar, by declaring solidarity with Mujivist Socialism, Democracy, Nationalism and Secularism, that is, National Treachery and fascism, have accepted the theory that National Democratic Revolution has completed. (Though currently they are saying that National Democratic Revolution has not been accomplished)

5. The Method of Struggle of National Democratic Revolution and Socialist Revolution

Since the birth of Marxism, life and death struggle has been going on between the proletarian revolutionaries and the opportunist, revisionist and imperialism’ lackeys on whether National Democratic Revolution and Socialist Revolution will go through peaceful means or violence. The imperialism’s lackey bourgeoisie say about peacefully carrying National Democratic Revolution through making compromise with imperialism. The bourgeoisie of Indo-Pak had said to make the country independent (Actually making it newly subordinate to others) through non-violent path by making compromise with the British colonialists.

It end up with renewed dependence than independence, and the Pak-Indo became a new colony or semi colony in place of colony. The revisionists say of carrying National Democratic Revolution by peaceful means through parliament. On the other side, the Marxists say that National Democratic or Socialist Revolution is not possible without violence. Chairman Mao said, “Revolutions and revolutionary wars are inevitable in class society, and without them it is impossible to accomplish any leap in social development and to overthrow the reactionary ruling classes and therefore impossible for the people to win political power.”[6] The revisionists, by abandoning revolutionary war became the tail of the bourgeoisie. Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists stepped forward in the blind path of election under the Election Structure under fascist Yahia.

When that path proved bankrupt, they took the wrong path of non-violence non-cooperation and at last fled to India facing severe military attack by the Pak military fascists. In India, they tailed behind the national traitor fascist Awami Legue, became running dog and mercenary army of the Indian expansionism and Soviet Social Imperialists and sold East Bengal to India. At last, they invited and brought Indian expansionists inside and handed over East Bengal to India.

Thus, the Soviet modern revisionists and their lackey Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists’ theory of making revolution peacefully proved totally bankrupt. In case of East Bengal, even national counter revolution could not occur through peaceful means, let alone National Democratic Revolution (that is, India could not capture East Bengal peacefully). At present, they, by taking part in election, are making effort to establish so called Socialism. In capitalist and imperialist countries, the modern revisionists are daydreaming of bringing Socialism through peaceful means via achieving majority in parliament or by the pressure of mass struggle inside and outside parliament, or by making structural change of the state [7].

The reactionary ruling class is not Buddha, and will never handover power gently. They will try till the end to protect their interest through military bureaucratic state machinery. With that aim, they are first to apply force. Therefore, proletariat has no way but seize state power by smashing the bureaucratic state machinery, firstly the armed force. The Communist Party of Indonesia, through Sukorno (through bourgeoisie) followed the revisionist path of making National Democratic Revolution and seizure of power via peaceful means. As a consequence of that, several hundred thousand communists and patriotic revolutionaries lost their lives and Indonesian revolution suffered huge losses.

By saying about establishing Socialism through peaceful means and carrying National Democratic Revolution, even Socialist Revolution through bourgeoisie, the modern revisionist are betraying with proletariat and masses, making proletariat unprepared and sustaining the bourgeoisie. The modern revisionists are actually sub-serving the bourgeoisie. The Rob group is saying scientific Socialism, class struggle and social revolution, but is advancing towards the blind path of parliamentary election. They are denying armed struggle. Kaji-Rono, Amol Sen, Deben-Bashar and Co. are opposing armed struggle, saying of participating in election under Vasani’s leadership and actually have made themselves slave of Awami fascists by giving them bond that they will carry legal struggle. The unfinished National Democratic Revolution of East Bengal has to be completed by rejecting the path of those revisionists and traitors.

The great armed struggle of the National Democratic Revolution has to be carried according to the strategy and tactics of people’s war, first rural areas have to be liberated and then, cities to be encircled by rural areas and at last by seizing cities, the whole East Bengal has to be liberated. If the National Democratic Revolution of East Bengal is guided by proletariat, the possibility will be created for peaceful transition to Socialism.

The meaning of completing National Democratic Revolution under the leadership of proletariat is that the proletariat has built own armed force through armed struggle and proletariat has achieved ownership of the state in the main, balance of power came to the side of proletariat, which will compel the bourgeoisie to accept the program of proletariat of Socialist Revolution. Therefore, it is indispensable to achieve proletarian class leadership in National Democratic Revolution to incessantly carry Socialist Revolution peacefully. As National Democratic Revolution in China, North Korea, North Vietnam was carried under the leadership of the proletariat, the Socialist Revolution could be advance peacefully without armed struggle with internal bourgeoisie (Korea confronted outside imperialist attack, Vietnam is still confronting attack).

6. Class Struggle, Scientific Socialism and Dictatorship of Proletariat

Since the birth of Marxism, life and death struggle is going on between on the one side Marxists and on the other the revisionists, opportunists and bourgeoisie on the question of establishing and sustaining Dictatorship of Proletariat. Severe struggling is going on between Marxists-Leninists and the revisionist, opportunist and domestic and international enemies of East Bengal on the question of the Dictatorship of Proletariat. The Rob group is saying of establishing Socialism through Social Revolution, but not saying about the Dictatorship of Proletariat. The Mujiv-ists are claiming that Socialism has been established, but not saying about the Dictatorship of Proletariat. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists, Kaji-Rono-Amol Sen, Deben-Bashar revisionists are saying about Socialism by deducting the Dictatorship of Proletariat. Mowlana Vashani too is not saying about the Dictatorship of Proletariat.

The modern revisionists of the world led by the Soviet modern revisionists have abandoned the Dictatorship of Proletariat. Whatever demagogy those so called socialists make of class struggle, social revolution and Socialism, their Socialism is establishing dictatorship of the reactionaries and sustaining that. The reason is that the state is either Dictatorship of Proletariat or that of bourgeoisie or reactionaries. This is why Lenin said, “It is often said and written that the main point in Marx’s theory is the class struggle. But this is wrong. And this wrong notion very often results in an opportunist distortion of Marxism and its falsification in a spirit acceptable to the bourgeoisie. For the theory of the class struggle was created not by Marx, but by the bourgeoisie before Marx, and, generally speaking, it is acceptable to the bourgeoisie. Those who recognize only the class struggle are not yet Marxists; they may be found to be still within the bounds of bourgeois thinking and bourgeois politics. To confine Marxism to the theory of the class struggle means curtailing Marxism, distorting it, reducing it to something acceptable to the bourgeoisie. Only he is a Marxist who extends the recognition of the class struggle to the recognition of the dictatorship of the proletariat. That is what constitutes the most profound distinction between the Marxist and the ordinary petty (as well as big) bourgeois.” [8] Marx himself said, “And now as to myself, no credit is due to me for discovering the existence of classes in modern society or the struggle between them. Long before me bourgeois historians had described the historical development of this class struggle and bourgeois economists, the economic anatomy of classes. What I did that was new was to prove: (1) that the existence of classes is only bound up with the particular, historical phases in the development of production (historische Entwicklungsphasen der Produktion), (2) that the class struggle necessarily leads to the dictatorship of the proletariat, (3) that this dictatorship itself only constitutes the transition to the abolition of all classes and to a classless society.” [9]

Therefore, one can’t be Marxist only by saying about class struggle. We have to extend the recognition of class struggle to the recognition of dictatorship of proletariat. The doctrine of dictatorship of proletariat drew a line of distinction between Utopian, bourgeoisie reactionary Socialism and scientific Socialism. So, despite saying Class Struggle and Scientific Socialism by the Rob group, they are US lackeys, and the Mujiv-ists are the lackeys of Six Mountains disguised as Socialist. Vashani is Petit Bourgeoisie Feudalist Socialist in the name of Islamic Socialism. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists and their master Soviet modern revisionists, Kaji-Rono-Amol Sen and Deben-Bashar and Co. by saying Socialism through abandoning dictatorship of proletariat, are proving that they are revisionists disguised as Marxist.

7. State Characteristics in the stage of New Democratic Revolution and Socialist Revolution

State is only a machinery of suppression of one class by another. That is, a machinery of class oppression. State emerges with the emergence of class society. State is a machine to carry dictatorship over one class by another. The owner by the state of East Bengal is Indian Expansionism, Soviet Social Imperialism, US led Imperialism, the representatives of the East Bengal Feudalism and Bureaucratic Capitalism. They, too, are carrying fascist dictatorship over the people of East Bengal through state machinery. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists are welcoming the state as National Democratic. Even they are welcoming the Mujiv-ist hoax of Socialism and constitution.

The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists are believing that the representative of the Bureaucratic Bourgeoisie and Feudalists through carrying exploitation and plunder and fascist dictatorship through their military bureaucratic state machinery are establishing Socialism. How much they have abandoned Marxism! In course of the National Democratic Revolution, the present state machinery, mainly the army of East Bengal must have to be smashed through armed struggle, new state machinery, mainly army has to be built and state based on People’s Joint Democratic Dictatorship has to be established.

The new state machinery of East Bengal will be used to suppress the lackeys of the foreign exploiters and feudalists and to resist foreign attack. The People’s Joint Democratic Dictatorship will be the Joint Dictatorship of all the Patriotic Classes led by Proletariat. The reason behind the joint dictatorship is that the peasants, petit bourgeoisie even the national bourgeoisie also take part in National Democratic Revolution. This is why Chairman Mao called that dictatorship ‘People’s Democratic Dictatorship’. People’s Democratic Dictatorship assures democracy among people and carries dictatorship over the enemies. The leadership of proletariat in people’s democratic dictatorship proves that it is a form of proletarian dictatorship. On the other side, state in the course of Socialist Revolution will be of Dictatorship of Proletariat.

8. The Role of Proletariat in Class Struggle, Social Revolution and Dictatorship of Proletariat

The Rob group is saying of class struggle and social revolution, but not Dictatorship of Proletariat. At the present era, without the leadership of proletariat, not only it is impossible to carry Class Struggle and Social Revolution in correct path, but also there is possibility of class compromise and counterrevolution to happen. After the emergence of imperialism, no bourgeoisie democratic revolution can occur under the leadership of the bourgeoisie.

This is because the bourgeoisie are weak as class, easily they can be bought by the imperialism and be their lackey and show vacillation. Though the Indo-Pak bourgeoisie carried independence movement and brought independence by making compromise with British, they protected the interest of the British and other imperialists and kept continued their indirect plunder and exploitation. Thus, from direct colony, the Indo-Pak became semi colony.

They compromised with feudalism too and sustained that. Therefore, National Democratic Revolution remained unfinished. That is why at present era, the bourgeoisie leadership is not even able to accomplish National Democratic Revolution, which is indispensable for their own development. The bourgeoisie leadership of East Bengal, while carrying National Democratic Revolution and Social Revolution, made Social Counterrevolution, created obstacle in own development by handing over own market to the Indian Expansionism, thus betrayed with own class. Why? It is because of their class weakness.

If they were equal to Tata-Romola-Birola, fearing competition, they would never welcome the Indian Expansionists. That is why, at the present era, without the leadership of Proletariat, it is not possible to carry National Democratic Revolution, Class Struggle and Social Revolution. The highest form of class struggle and national struggle is class war and national war respectively. It also can’t be directed in correct path without proletarian leadership; but end up in class and national compromise or class and national counterrevolutionary war under bourgeoisie leadership. The Awami League fascists made no plan of resisting the Pak military fascist attack, but spontaneously they did some resistance in wrong path.

At last, when that broke down, they fled to India for their safety and became fuel of artillery of Indian Expansionism. They made the war a counterrevolutionary war of National Subservience. In that war, they not only opposed Proletarian Class Leadership, but also gave priority to the act of annihilation of them. Thus, war that was carried in exchange of hundreds of thousands of people’s blood, went in vain. Chairman Mao said, “In this era, any revolutionary war will definitely end in defeat if it lacks, or runs counter to, the leadership of the proletariat and the Communist Party”. 10]

“The People’s democratic dictatorship needs the leadership of the working class. For it is only the working class that is most far-sighted, most selfless and most thoroughly revolutionary. The entire history of revolution proves that without the leadership of the working class revolution fails and that with the leadership of the working class revolution triumphs”. [11] He further added, “…the proletariat and the Communist Party are the ones most free from narrow-mindedness and selfishness, are politically the most far-sighted, the best organized and the readiest to learn with an open mind from the experience of the vanguard class, the proletariat, and its political party throughout the world and to make use of this experience in their own cause. Hence only the proletariat and the Communist Party can lead the peasantry, the urban petty bourgeoisie and bourgeoisie, can overcome the narrow-mindedness of the peasants and the petty bourgeoisie, the destructiveness of the unemployed masses, and also (provided the Communist Party does not err in its policy) the vacillation and lack of thoroughness of the bourgeoisie, can lead the revolution and the war on to the road of victory.” [12]

The National Democratic Revolution must be directed under the Leadership of Proletariat. It is a free of will material law of social development of present era. Chairman Mao termed National Democratic Revolution as New Democratic Revolution (In opposition to that, the National Democratic Revolution led by bourgeoisie is Old Democratic Revolution, the end of that is colonial or semi colonial, feudal or semi feudal country). The meaning of revolution having proletarian class leadership means keeping the direction of the movement of social development. That is, complete end of expansionist, social imperialist, imperialist exploitation and feudalist exploitation, that is, accomplishment of National Democratic Revolution. Socialist Revolution can be carried only by completing that revolution. In other word, “Proletarian leadership has fundamentally changed the whole face of the revolution (National Democratic Revolution–Author), has brought about a new alignment of classes, given rise to a tremendous upsurge in the peasant revolution, imparted thoroughness to the revolution against imperialism and feudalism, created the possibility of the transition from the democratic revolution to the socialist revolution.” [13]

Thus, Proletarian Leadership adjoins Bourgeoisie Democratic Revolution to Socialist Revolution. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists say by correcting the law of social revolution, “We have to accept bourgeoisie leadership in Bourgeoisie Democratic Revolution until extensive development of productive force i.e. working class.” That is why they willingly handover leadership of Bourgeoisie Democratic Revolution of East Bengal to the bourgeoisie, that is, the Awami fascists.

That reactionary theory produces the treacherous logic of abiding by fascist leadership of Awami League, that is, tailing behind them. By showing the logic that ‘Without extensive development of productive force, Socialist Revolution can’t be made’, the Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists are tailing behind the Awami League fascist national traitor government and giving them chance to produce productive force, that is, working class. What a treacherous logic!

The six mountains’ lackeys are keeping foreign exploitation and plunder, made East Bengal a colony of India, sustained feudalist exploitation, that is, kept National Democratic Revolution unfinished and newly transformed East Bengal into a colonial semi-feudal East Bengal. So, how is bourgeoisie development and in opposition to that, development of working class possible? The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists through constant treason forgot the ABC of Marxism. During the time of National Democratic Revolution led and accomplished by Proletariat, State is a Joint Dictatorship of patriotic classes led by Proletariat. It is a form of Dictatorship of Proletariat.

In Socialist Society, State is of Proletarian Dictatorship. Proletarian class leadership is indispensable to carry Dictatorship of Proletariat. Chairman Mao said, “The People’s democratic dictatorship needs the leadership of the working class.” [14] “The leadership of proletariat is given by its political party. This Party is composed of the advanced elements of the proletariat; it is a vigorous vanguard organization leading the proletariat and the revolutionary masses in the fight against the class (and national–Author) enemy.” [15]

The theoretical basis of that party is Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought. The Rob group is saying of class struggle, making of social revolution and establishing of Socialism without a political party of proletariat directed based on Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought. The meaning of saying class struggle, social revolution and establishing Socialism is making struggle, social revolution and Socialism under the leadership of bourgeoisie and reactionaries.

Thus, Rob group is saying of reactionaries’ leadership leaving the leadership of the political party of proletariat, the end of which is class compromise in the name of class struggle, social counter revolution in the name of social revolution, exploitation and plunder of US imperialism and its lackeys and establishing fascist dictatorship in the name of scientific Socialism. The Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists, Kaji-Rono, Amol Sen, Deben-Bashar and other domestic-international revisionists and reactionaries, in the name of National Democratic Revolution, Class Struggle, making Social Revolution and establishing Socialism without political party of proletariat guided on the basis of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought, is helping domestic-international exploitation, plunder and fascist dictatorship. The events of East Bengal proves that the end of reactionary leadership in place of proletarian class political party guided on the basis of Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought in Liberation Struggle of East Bengal people, is repetition of National Treason, Fascist Dictatorship, Domestic and International Exploitation and Plunder similar to Awmi League.

9. The Economy of National Democratic Revolution and Socialist Revolution

National Democratic Revolution is the revolution of creating condition for bourgeoisie development by eliminating the competition of foreign bourgeoisie and internal feudalism. Therefore, in the course of this revolution, personal ownership will be defended and the foreign capital and foreign related capital will be nationalized and lands have to be distributed among landless peasants by completely overthrowing feudalism.

The Bangladesh puppet government is saying about Socialism and still has not accomplished National Democratic Revolution. They have not confiscated any imperialist capital and capital related to that. They are letting imperialist capital to freely be infiltrated, keeping Indian expansionist plunder, letting Social Imperialist plunder and not have overthrown feudalism. Thus, East Bengal remained colonial semi feudal (Moni-Mojaffar traitors are denying that).

In Socialist Society, Land is transformed from Personal Ownership to Social Ownership through Cooperative and finally through Commune. Production (factories and industries), distribution (Shops, wholesale and retail), transport and all are carried under state ownership from private ownership. Man/woman works according his/her ability and gets payment according to work. In this economic system, the exploitation of man by man, that is, extraction of surplus value of workers and peasants by the owners is banned.

Workers-peasants, intellectuals and other employees gets a part of the surplus value they produce by their labor, while rest is utilized by the state for their welfare as the resource of development of society. The six mountains’ lackeys are saying of Socialism in East Bengal, but have kept private ownership in all level and even kept bureaucrat’s ownership and foreign capital’s ownership in state owned factories and industries. Therefore, in terms of economy too, this government is not even National Democratic, let alone Socialist.

10. Politics of National Democratic Revolution and Socialist Revolution

In course of National Democratic Revolution, proletariat must achieve the leadership of revolution, show the vacillation of the bourgeoisie and take the line of unity and struggle with them. They must maintain own independence and sovereignty, and in no way, they can be tail of the bourgeoisie. The meaning of becoming tail of the bourgeoisie will be serving the interest of the bourgeoisie, doing harm to revolution and letting the bloodshed of proletariat and people go in vain. Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists, by leaving own independent role, became tail of the bourgeoisie. The leadership of the Communist Party of Indonesia, accepted the leadership of the bourgeoisie and abandoned own independence and sovereignty.

Hundreds of thousands comrades lost their lives as a consequence of that. By being tail of the bourgeoisie, aren’t the Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionists making their own burial? The proletariat must build Workers-Peasants Alliance, unify the petit bourgeoisie and take the line of unity and struggle with the bourgeoisie. Therefore, they have to organize peasants in the villages, free the peasants by overthrowing their enemy the feudalist, and thus bring them proletarian leadership. In socialist society, the main problem is to resist restoration of political power by bourgeoisie. Therefore, constantly class struggle has to be waged and proletarian dictatorship has to be strengthened. And Cultural Revolution must be carried under proletarian class dictatorship.

11. Socialism and Communism

The Mujiv-ists and the Rob group are saying about Socialism and classless society etc. in socialist society, there will be classes and class struggle. This is why Dictatorship of Proletariat is the state characteristics in socialist society. This Dictatorship and State System will exist until the transition from Socialism to Communism. It is possible to eliminate State after worldwide overthrow of capitalist society. Therefore, only Communist Society is classless and free from exploitation.

The Mujiv-ists are saying that East Bengal has already become classless at present because the Pak military fascists have made everyone proletariat. If classless, then why there is Police, Military, Jail and State? Those are to defend properties of riches and to defend foreign exploiters. It proves that classes exist in East Bengal. In order to liquidate that class, Revolutionary Dictatorship of Proletariat is needed. By not saying that, Rob group and Awami League is deceiving people only. In order to reach classless society, National Democratic Revolution must has to be accomplished, Socialist Revolution must has to be carried through establishing the Dictatorship of Proletariat; only then classless society, that is, communism can be established.

12. Victory of People is Inevitable

The reactionary socialists, by the phrase of Socialism are making futile attempt to deceive people and exploit and plunder them forever. But today or tomorrow, people will be able to understand their deception and treason and throw them to the dustbin of history. The people of Indo-Pak never accepted the ruthless exploitation and plunder by the British colonial ruling regime, and have carried resistance against them. At last, the British bandits were overthrown.

The people of East Bengal struggled against the political, economic, especially religious oppression of the reactionary section of the Hindu Jaminders (Big Feudal Land Lord –Sarbaharapath) and Jotedars (Small Feudal Land Lords –Sarbaharapath) depended on British colonial bandits. At last they were overthrown. People of East Bengal joined Pakistan in order to liberate themselves from that oppression.

But the non-Bengali ruling regime of Pakistan, other than letting free development in political, economic, cultural and other spheres, carried National Oppression and made East Bengal a Colony. People of East Bengal faught against that. Once Muslim League, the political party that carried independence for Pakistan and its leader Zinnah was at the peak of popularity. Gradually, they lost popularity. In the Indo-Pak war of 1965, as people’s support was with Pakistan, India failed to capture East Bengal or Pakistan. The same people of East Bengal, to achieve National Right, oppose Pakistan than supporting her. They fought a bloody Armed Struggle for National Liberation.

The arrogant saying of the Pak military fascists that ‘No force of earth can separate East Bengal’ proved lie. East Bengal was separated. People of East Bengal had put trust on the sweat words of the Awami fascists, lost their mind by the deception of the Indian expansionists and welcomed them as ally. But the people of East Bengal have understood the treason of the Awami League fascists and the deception of the Indian Expansionists, and are struggling against them. So, their elimination is inevitable. In pre-revolutionary Soviet Union, there were more than twelve parties who claimed as socialist.

But people analyzed the words and activities of those socialists and considered whether or not they were able to lead people’s struggle, and at last rejected them. They determined Bolshevik party led by great leader Lenin as able to lead the liberation struggle and accepted his leadership. People of East Bengal also are reviewing words and activities of different forms of false and reactionary socialists and verifying them whether or not they are able to give correct solution of the questions that arose in the course of liberation struggle. Thus, today or tomorrow, they will reject false and reactionary socialists and different forms of revisionists, and accept genuine socialists and revolutionaries.

People of East Bengal have understood the ‘B’ team character of the Moni Singh-Mojaffar revisionist traitor clique and the lackey character of Awami League fascists. Their doom is also fixed. People have started to understand the position of Rob group, and they will be able to understand in course of struggle their (Rob group) true lackey character and similar character of Awami League. Their doom is also inevitable.

Also people have finished understanding the character of Kaji-Rono-Amol Sen, Deben-Bashar and Co. Their doom is also inevitable. Huq-Toha, Motin-Alauddin is making hundreds of efforts to pose them as revolutionary but their face is being unmasked in time and tide of the movement of society and their bankruptcy is being proven. Masses and their own cadres are leaving them. As last effort of posing themselves as revolutionary, through repeated split, they are attacking each other and each one are making futile attempt to pose as pure revolutionary. Their doom is inevitable. Therefore, people and people alone are the motive force of history.

People are neither Buddha nor fool. Many times, they are much more intelligent than us. We are sometimes child and ridiculous compared to them. At the present era, people want revolution, country wants independence and nation wants liberation. Therefore, those who are deceiving people by thinking people as fool and themselves as much clever, and by mongering phrase and covering their face with revolutionary mask, are deceiving and betraying people, their fall will be much quicker than the past reactionaries. But the reactionaries will not surrender willingly. Make trouble, fail, make trouble again…fail again . . . till their doom—with this logic they will continue to make conspiracy, treason and troube till their doom. It will cause set back, defeat in people’s liberation struggle. This is why the path of people’s liberatin zig zag and difficult. “The socialist system will eventually replace the capitalist system; this is an objective law independent of man’s will. However much the reactionaries try to hold back the wheel of history, sooner or later revolution will take place and will inevitably triumph.” The reactionary socialists, by mongering the phrase of Socialism can deceive some people for some days, but they will not be able to deceive all the people forever.

Chairman Mao said, “The next 50 to 100 years or so, beginning from now, will be a great era of radical change in the social system throughout the world, an earth-shaking era without equal in any previous historical period. Living in such an era, we must be prepared to engage in great struggles which will have many features different in form from those of the past.” [17] He further added, “Revolution is the main tendency at present era.”[18] The events of East Bengal and world prove the correctness of that great conclusion of Chairman Mao only.

The proletarian revolutionaries of East Bengal has to fight against different forms of revisionists and reactionary socialists till the end, expose their face and finally bury them We have to guide people towards liberation, constantly carry revolution, accomplish National Democratic Revolution, initiate and guide Socialist Revolution and after finishing that we have to materialize communism.

Maoist camp in Odisha destroyed

A Maoist camp operating in Tarsingh police station limits in Ganjam district of Odisha was destroyed during a joint operation by police forces of Gajapati and Ganjam districts on Wednesday morning. It hinted that after the arrest of expelled CPI (Maoist) leader Sabyasachi Panda in Berhampur in July this year, the outlawed leftist extremist organisation is making efforts to increase its base in the erstwhile area of operation of Panda.

Exchange of fire

Speaking to The Hindu, the Gajapati Superintendent of Police (SP) Satyajit Nayak, who led this operation, said there was an exchange of fire between the Maoists and security forces at the spot of this Maoist camp inside the jungle near Borimunda under Tarsingh police station from 6.45 a.m. to 7.20 a.m. According to him, the Maoists present in the camp did not seem to be from Odisha. They were led by a Telugu man and most cadres present in the camp seemed to be from Chhatisgarh.

It was suspected that there were around 20 Maoists in this camp. One Self Loading Rifle (SLR), two magazines, 30 rounds of live ammunition, medicines, Maoist literature and things for their day-to-day use were seized from the destroyed camp. One personnel of District Voluntary Force (DVF) of Gajapati police received a minor injury. Although the leftist extremists escaped from the spot, blood marks left behind hinted that Maoists may have been injured or had casualties. The Gajapati district police had received intelligence reports regarding this camp of the CPI (Maoist) organisation. It may be noted that after expelling Panda from the organisation in 2012, the CPI (Maoist) outfit had initiated efforts to rebuild its organisation in Kandhamal, Gajapati and Ganjam districts through cadres from Andhra Pradesh and Chhatisgarh. Senior Maoist leader from Andhra Pradesh M. Balkrishna also visited this region to reorganise the ground level organisation.

Pune ATS gives proof of fund transfers done by ‘Maoist operative’ Arun Bhelke

To extend the police custody of Arun Bhelke and his wife Kanchan Nanaware, the Pune unit of the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) revealed that it has recovered a record of transfer of funds made from and to Nanaware’s bank account. The husband and wife, who are allegedly Maoist operatives, were arrested by the ATS last week. During the hearing at the court of judicial magistrate on Tuesday, the ATS team stated that they have proof that Nanaware’s bank account received huge sums of money from Gadchiroli and Chandrapur in the last three months, allegedly used to train people and make them active members of the banned Communist Party of India (CPI) Maoist group.

In addition, a transfer of funds was also made from the same account to Kolhapur. Cops said they retrieved this information after scrutinising documents saved in the laptop which was seized during the arrest. Sunil Tambe, the investigation officer of ATS, told the court, “The seized laptop has proof of transactions in lakhs of rupees to different places. We are still investigating the purpose of these funds. Another laptop and desktop that the duo was using in Mumbai will also be seized. We have also obtained information about the mobile phone they were using. In the last 12 months, Bhelke has met close to 28 college-going boys.”

Cops asked for an extension in police custody to continue their interrogation. Opposing the extension, defence lawyers Wajed Khan and T C Shaikh, submitted, “The duo has been in custody for the last seven days. We request the court to send them to judicial custody. Kanchan underwent a cardiac surgery last year and is not in the position to handle stress.” However, the bench had extended the duo’s police custody till September 15.

Police constable killed in Naxal attack in Chhattisgarh

Raipur, Sep 10 (PTI) A police constable was killed and another jawan injured in a Naxal attack today in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Bijapur district, police said.

Naxal links high on Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad agenda

Promising “acche din” in the Left-dominated Jawaharlal Nehru University, the right-wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) plans to introduce proper background screening and profiling of students engaged in activities supporting the Maoists, if it wins the students’ union polls later this week. In its agenda for the JNUSU polls on September 12, the ABVP has promised to keep a strong check on all anti-national activities.

The student group plans to immediately freeze all the documents and certificates of a student, Hem Mishra, and will declare him persona non-grata in the JNU campus. Last year, Mishra was arrested in Gadchiroli district by the Maharashtra police for alleged link with the Naxals. Mishra, a resident of Almora in Uttarakhand, was arrested along with two others from a bus station in Aheri division of Gadchiroli district. The ABVP claimed that Mishra was a member of the Democratic Students’ Union (DSU), a student outfit of the CPI(Maoist). The ABVP’s presidential candidate, Sourabh Kumar, told this newspaper that there are several organisations banned by the university and the government for carrying out anti-national activities, and these groups try to enrol students for such activities.

In a first, NSG to train commandos to handle hostage situations

New Delhi, September 7 (PTI): For the first time in its three decade-old history, the country’s elite counter-terror force NSG has begun training its commandos in undertaking precision hostage rescue missions in jungles keeping in view emerging Naxalite tactics aimed at capturing high-value targets. The federal contingency force, which trains everyday to counter any terrorist act emerging in urban areas, has brought together a team of its chosen ‘black cat’ commandos to test their nerves and hone skills in this domain which has largely been an operations ground for central paramilitary and state police forces.

Strategic security planners said Naxal violence incidents in the past like the 2013 Darbha Ghati killings of political leaders in Chhattisgarh and abduction of key government officials like Malkangiri (Odisha) Collector Vineel Krishna and his Sukma counterpart Alex Paul Menon has brought to the fore an urgent requirement to prepare a ‘Special Squad’ of commandos who can undertake hostile missions to secure the captured and end the crisis perpetrated by the Maoists. In order to achieve these objectives, the National Security Guard (NSG) under its new Director General JN Choudhury has prepared a blueprint to train a special forces team in this task. NSG commanders, according to a blueprint prepared in this context, are now training the ‘black cats’ to intervene in such a situation by various methods like air insertion through helicopters, silent landing of commando teams on para-gliders or storming of a hideout in dense jungles by camouflaged land movements aided by precise intelligence of the geography and inhabitants of the area.

Policeman suspended for ‘helping’ Maoists

A police head constable posted in Narayanpur district of south Chhattisgarh has been put under suspension for allegedly revealing the movement of security forces to a Maoist informer, which resulted in the killing of 16 people near Tahakwada village of Sukma district in March this year. Eleven CRPF men, four policemen and a civilian were killed in the Maoist ambush on March 11 near Tahakwada village, hardly a few kilometres from the Tongpal police station.

“Mahadev Nag has been put under suspension pending inquiry,” S.R. Kalluri, the Inspector General (IG) of Police, Bastar range, told The Hindu. “Mahadev Nag was posted in Tongpal when the incident took place. He provided information about the troops’ movement to a Maoist informer Manjhiram Kashyap who was recently arrested by the Bastar police,” revealed a senior police officer posted in Bastar, requesting anonymity.

Election Boycott Campaign Ongoing in Brazil












“To uphold non participation in the Constituent Assembly elections, the call for the boycott,the generating of a movement of rejection of the elections, is condemned as a “left-wing infantile disorder.” However, that is only a label that tries to cover the facts with a shower of words; because what is being debated here is not the infantilism or senility of anyone. What is being debated is the real, objective situation of the class struggle in our country; what is being debated is which period we are now in, and what are its characteristics and perspective….What is in debate is if it is appropriate to sow electoral illusions, to propagate electoralism, if that is any help to the proletariat, to the people, to the democratic revolution.”

BMC corporator who gave ‘Maoist’ letter questioned

A municipal corporator from Mumbai was summoned by the Pune ATS on Sunday in connection with the arrest of a suspected Naxalite. Arun Kamble, who is the municipal corporator from Deonar, Ward 138, gave a statement to the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad. The Pune ATS was investigating how Arun Bhanudas Bhelke, 38, who allegedly recruits for the banned CPI-(Maoist) group, got a SIM card and PAN card made. Kamble allegedly gave a letter to Bhelke which said that the latter was a resident of Deonar.

Through that letter, Bhelke got the cards made. Kamble was asked about how he knew the accused and on basis of what evidence he issued the letter. Speaking to Mirror, Kamble said, “Many people come to my office and I have to help them get an identity card. My office boy told me that Bhelke had come to our office. He was brought to my office by a person known to us. That’s why the letter was issued.” Kamble said that he was approached by ATS officials on Friday who said that Bhelke had made a card on Kamble’s office address. “I have not met that person. I went to Pune on Sunday and cooperated with investigations,” said Kamble. “Bhelke procured a SIM and PAN cards through the letter issued by Kamble. Bhelke was recruiting youths for the CPI(M) from different villages in Pune. We are investigating further,” said a senior ATS official.

Maoist blow up railway track in Jharkhand, goods train derail

RANCHI: Suspected Maoists blasted a railway track on CIC section of Dhanbad division under South Eastern Railway around 2am in the intervening night of Sunday and Monday after which several bogies of a goods train derailed disrupting railway services on the crucial railway route. Around one meter railway track was blown up between Latehar and Bendi railway stations where Maoists also dropped posters. Latehar SP Michael Raj confirmed:

“Several bogies of a good train have derailed after the railway track was blown up by Maoists. Forces have been rushed to the spot.” The content of the posters are not known yet because forces, rushed to the site, could not be contacted, he added. Some of the bogies of the goods train have fallen on the second railway line thus stopping movement of all trains on the crucial railway route. It is the route for several Delhi and north bound trains from Ranchi thus several trains have been stranded. A spokesperson for Dhanbad railway division said railway officials have reached the site. Ranchi DRM Deepak Kashyap said north bound trains would be routed via Bokaro and not Barkakana-Latehar route. Sources in police said a group of Maoists arrived at the site enveloped in thick forest and possibly used an IED to blast the track. After the blast they dropped posters and escaped.

Court rejects bail plea of ‘Naxal’ Hem Mishra

A sessions court in Aheri has rejected the bail application of Hem Mishra, the first of the three alleged Naxals operatives from New Delhi to be arrested by the Gadchiroli police last year. The police had claimed to have arrested Mishra from the Aheri bus stand in Gadchiroli along with two aides of senior Naxal leader Narmada who were to lead him to Abujmaad forest to meet her. The court ruled that the police had enough material to establish a prima facie case of his involvement in Naxal activities.

Earlier, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court had denied bail to Delhi University professor G N Saibaba, who was the third person to be arrested by the Gadchiroli police after Mishra and Prashant Rahi. The police had claimed Rahi and Saibaba were arrested on the basis of leads secured during Mishra’s interrogation. Rahi was, however, granted bail by the High Court during the same hearing on the technical ground that the police hadn’t properly explained the documents submitted to it concerning Rahi. Interestingly, while the CPI (Maoist) had reportedly condemned the arrest of Saibaba and Rahi and a bid was made to bail them out, nobody, including any of Mishra’s relatives, had filed bail plea for Mishra. A few days ago, however, the bail plea was pushed by Surendra Gadling, the lawyer who had also argued for Saibaba and Rahi, on behalf of Rahi’s parents. Asked if Mishra would now move the High Court, Gadling said: “His parents will decide.”

Security tightened in Maoist-hit districts in Odisha

Security has been beefed up in Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada and Nabarangpur districts of Odisha in view of the foundation week to be observed from September 21 by the banned CPI(Maoist). Inspector General of Police (South-Western Range), Yashwant Kumar Jethwa said security had been tightened in the Maoist-hit districts and a close watch was being maintained to deal with any situation. “Due to extensive anti-naxal operations in the area in past few months, the Maoists are on defensive.

The situation is under control, but we can’t be complacent”, he said. Strict vigil is being maintained, particularly along the Andhra Pradesh-Odisha borders to stop possible influx of ultras from the neighbouring state, the IG said. “Security forces are kept on high alert in order to meet any challenge,” he said. Maoists have meanwhile put up posters at several areas in Malkangiri district asking people to cooperate with them during the foundation week and join the movement, police said.

On August 20, 2014, the Union Cabinet approved the extension of mobile telephonic services to 2,199 locations affected by Left Wing Extremism (LWE) in the States of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. The project would be executed by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). BSNL has already installed towers at 363 of these locations.

The Universal Service Obligation Fund (USOF) would fund the capital expenditure and operative expenditure, net of revenue, for five years. The project implementation cost through the open tendering process is approximately INR 35.68 billion. In 2013, the Cabinet had approved just over INR 30 billion for the project. The project was delayed by more than a year, apparently, because of differences over project cost. The USOF which is administered by Department of Telecom (DoT) was created under the National Telecom Policy of 1999 to help provide telecom services at affordable prices to people in rural areas where no phone facilities are available.

While USOF will provide both capital expenditure and operational expenditure components of the proposed mobile rollout for five years, the ownership of the assets to be created is proposed to be vested with BSNL to ensure long-term continuity of services. The network rollout will be monitored by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (UMHA), as it is aimed at beefing up communications and surveillance operations by national security agencies in these regions. It is also learnt that UMHA and the Prime Minister’s Office want the project to get underway immediately as “it is of national importance with security considerations,” and is running a year behind schedule, a top BSNL official told the media. BSNL has already identified a sizeable number of tower sites in consultation with the UMHA. Initially, towers will be erected at places close to security camps and Police stations.

The project to install the towers in the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist)-affected areas was conceived in 2010 when P. Chidambaram was the Union Home Minister, but there was little progress in the matter since then. After the Maoist attack on the State leadership of the Congress party in Chhattisgarh on May 25, 2013, the Union Cabinet approved the project to install 2,199 mobile towers at a cost of INR 30.46 billion, and June 2014 was set as the deadline for completion of the task. Thus far, however, only 363 towers have been installed. Concerned about the delay, UMHA has been pressuring the Telecom Department to expedite installation of towers.

One reminder was sent a week before the March 11, 2014, Maoist attack in Sukma District in Chhattisgarh, in which 15 Security Force (SF) personnel and one civilian were killed. The then Union Home Minister, Sushil Kumar Shinde, observed, in a letter dated March 4, 2014, “The poor communication network in the Naxal-affected areas is a matter of serious concern.” Stressing the need to have a better communications network in place before the Lok Sabha elections, Shinde emphasised that installation of mobile towers should be expedited, especially in the highly Maoist-affected States such as Jharkhand, Bihar and Odisha, and called for an ‘all-out effort’ to complete the whole process before the Lok Sabha elections.

Shinde’s letter noted, further, “The work was awarded to Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and installation and roll out of mobile towers was targeted to be completed in 12 months.” The difference over project cost, about INR 7.89 billion, between actual requirement and the revised project budget approved by the Cabinet Committee of Economic Affairs, in June 2013, was due to an ‘arithmetic error’, it was claimed. Official sources argued, “There is an arithmetical mistake in annual maintenance contract estimates, omission of certain items that are required for roll out of projects, revision of VSAT bandwidth charges and other. The DoT is studying it.”

Further, there were technical specification issues, such as whether to go for a solar powered 2G network, and whether to go for 20 watts ‘base transceiver station’ (BTS)/cell phone tower or five watts, that delayed the implementation of the project. These issues now appear to have been settled, but the implementation of the project may still be headed for a bumpy ride. First, the tender for the work was initially floated by BSNL in August 2013, but received lukewarm responses, with major global players opting out, and just three Indian players participating. That is unusual in the prevailing economic situation, when companies are struggling to maintain growth and profit margins, and the contract was for approximately of INR 30 billion.

In March 2014, the Telecom Commission asked DoT and BSNL to go for retendering, citing the project’s higher costs and poor response. After two months of the re-tendering exercise, however, the two companies – Vihaan Networks Ltd and HFCL – who had earlier qualified in the technical bidding, were again in the fray, as no other company, Indian or foreign, decided to participate. This was despite the extension of the application deadline by a week in May. A BSNL official noted, “During recent pre-bid meetings, global telecom gear suppliers were reluctant to participate in the bidding as they felt that managing and maintaining mobile networks in Naxal-hit regions is risky.”

A top executive of a leading foreign gear maker conceded that the “additional responsibility of maintaining expensive solar-powered mobile networks in Naxalite hotbeds is fraught with significant business risks”. In such a situation, quality is likely to be first casualty. The second issue is the provision of continuous power supply to the towers. Solar power has its limitations, and even where power supply is not very erratic, BSNL backup batteries start providing insufficient back up, in some cases, within just one year, due to poor maintenance. Solar panels need regular cleaning of the surface, as dust decreases the efficiency of the panels.

Further, 24×7 availability (or at least availability at short notice) of trained manpower is needed for maintenance of batteries, to protected against full discharge. Even three or four full discharges severely affect the efficiency of batteries. Further, the restoration time in case of some fault in solar-power towers is unknown, but is likely to be substantial, as local knowhow is limited. Arranging any outside service in LWE-affected areas will create its own and significant problems. Diesel supplies to run generators are even more erratic, with BSNL managing an inefficient network of its own, whereas private operators generally outsource the service to locals. Media reports indicate that shortages in diesel supplies to mobile towers have long been an issue in existing towers in Maoist-affected areas, with nodal supply points located at long distances from the towers.

In a note sent to the Department in 2013, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs observed, “it has come to the notice of MHA that some existing BSNL towers in the LWE-affected areas remain shut for long periods of time ostensibly due to non-availability of diesel to run the generators etc. Hence, sufficient monitoring mechanisms may be put in place to deliver better services.” It remains to be seen how these issues will be addressed for the much wider network of towers envisaged in the current project. The third issue is the identification of relatively secure locations for the mobile towers. Though towers are initially to be set up close to security camps and Police Stations, given the very poor density of such establishments in Maoist affected areas, it will be difficult to find appropriate locations for such a large number of towers.

Further, the location of security camps and establishments are based on strategic considerations, which may not coincide with the technical requirements of the location of the towers. There is, moreover, the BSNL’s track record of providing poor service even in areas where there is no threat from Maoists. The organisation’s efficiency in Naxalite afflicted regions can only be expected to be poorer. Crucially, moreover, the Maoists recognize the threat that an efficient – or even minimally working – cellular network constitutes to their own security and survival, and have systematically attacked isolated mobile towers wherever possible. According the UMHA, at least 245 such attacks are on record just between 2008 and 2013. The penetration of a public communications networks into their areas of operation has been acknowledged by the Maoists to be one of the crucial elements leading to a decline in their operational effectiveness and recruitment potential. In their Social Investigation of North Telengana, in what was then the worst affected region of Andhra Pradesh, the Communist Party of India – Maoist, observed, as far back as in the early 2000s,

Earlier there was the post and telegraph department in the rural area. Branch post offices were set up in the big villages. In addition to these tele communications also came up rapidly… In the big villages with a population of 5 to 7 thousand, there are 70 to 100 telephones. But the facility is not spread over all the villages… Since phone can be obtained with 600 rupees there are 300 applications from one village… Cell phone facility spread to 60 kms up to Janagama, 40 kms towards Mulugu, and near Bhupalapalli.This network exists in almost the whole area of our operation. The cells are mainly established by the medical, fertiliser, big grocery shops and some rich peasants.

Small contractors, political leaders and police informers also bought them… The middle class is opposing the blasting of the exchanges. The increased communication network facilitated the enemy to receive our information soon… Now if a squad member goes to the village for food and it is exposed, the police from the near by station can encircle us within one hour. We are unable to identify who leaded the information…

NMDC’s Bailadila Project Gets Delayed After Naxal Attack

Already running about six months behind schedule, a Rs 607 crore expansion project of state-run miner NMDC at Bailadila in Chhattisgarh is set to be delayed further after Naxals burnt part of a conveyor belt meant for evacuating the raw material from the new mine. The Bailadila 11B deposit is very crucial for NMDC in its efforts to achieve 50 million tonnes per annum (mtpa) capacity by 2018-19. The project, slated to be commissioned by March this year, will have a capacity to produce seven mtpa iron ore.

“As part of plan to enhance production, the construction of Deposit 11B mine at an expanded capacity of seven million tonnes per annum has been taken up. The estimated capital expenditure towards this is Rs 607 crore. Naxal activities have seriously hindered the progress of the project work,” NMDC said in its Annual Report. Out of the proposed investment, Rs 320 crore was meant for plant and the remaining Rs 187 crore was earmarked for mining machineries. Naxals had in March this year burnt the downhill conveyor of 11 B over a length of 500 meters, which was scheduled to take trial run in May.

CRPF suspends 17 personnel for inaction during Naxal ambush

In a strict disciplinary action, the CRPF has suspended 17 of its troopers, including four junior officers, for “inaction” after an inquiry found that they deserted their martyred colleagues during a deadly Naxal ambush earlier this year in Chhattisgarh which claimed 16 lives along with a civilian. A Court of Inquiry instituted immediately after the March 11 incident in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma district found that these personnel, part of the squad that was trapped in the ambush in a narrow field, displayed “lack of action and did not show satisfactory counter action” to save their fellow troopers as they ran for safety of their lives.

“The Inspector General Chhattisgarh has placed them under suspension after the preliminary inquiry found them guilty on these charges. The full inquiry would be completed within three months time,” CRPF Director General Dilip Trivedi said.

Chhatisgarh: Senior Maoist leader killed in gun-battle with security forces

A senior Maoist leader was killed in an intense gun-battle between security forces and rebels in Chhattisgarh’s insurgency-hit Rajnandgaon district, police said on Wednesday. The face-off took place last night on the Gahangatta hills under Aundhi police station limits, Rajnandgaon Superintendent of Police Sanjeev Shukla said. The Maoist was identified as Sunil Aayla, ‘deputy commander’ of Aundhi LGS (Local Guerrilla Squad), who was carrying a reward of Rs 3 lakh on his head, Shukla said.

Based on a tip-off about a meeting of senior Naxal leaders on Gahangata hills, around 6 km from Aundhi police station, a joint squad of special task force and district police launched a search operation yesterday. Ultras opened fire indiscriminately from the hill top after they were surrounded, and fled after an hour as security personnel retaliated, the SP said. While Aayla’s body was recovered, blood stains at the site indicated that some of his other colleagues were also injured or killed, the officer said.

An SLR rifle, 50 cartridges, two tiffin-bombs, a walkie-talkie, medicines, and commodities of daily use were found. Associated with Naxal movement since 2005, Sunil was a native of Karyakatta village of Rajnandgaon.


ATS detains alleged Naxal near Pune

The Maharashtra ATS has detained an alleged Naxal from the Chandrapur district in Kasewadi area of Pune on Monday. He will be handed over to the Chandrapur police for further legal procedure, according to senior police inspector Bhanupratap Barge of Pune ATS. According to ATS officials, the suspect has been identified as Arun Bhelake (38), a resident of Chandrapur. “The ATS has detained him for inquiry from Kasewadi area on Monday on the basis of intelligence inputs from senior authorities.

It was revealed in the initial investigation that he was a former president of the Deshbhakti Yuva Manch. He was working for recruitment of youth for a banned Maoist organisation through his organisation and also has links with Naxal leaders. The offence was also registered against him with under the UAPA, 2008,” said the official. “The suspect’s movements were reported in Pune in the last one year and he was also in touch with a group of youths in the city aged around 18 to 22 years. He introduced himself as Sanjay Kambale in Pune,” Mr Barge added.

Anti-Terrorism Squad arrests two Naxals after recovery of evidence

The Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) on Tuesday arrested alleged Naxals Arun Bhelake (38) and Kanchan Nanaware (31) after recovery of incriminating evidence from their homes in Kanhe Phata area of Pune. The court of first class magistrate has remanded them to ATS custody till September 9. Both Bhelake and Nanaware are residents of the Chandrapur district. According to an ATS official, Bhelake was detained from Kasewadi area, Pune, on Monday and after his questioning Nanaware was also detained.

Incriminating documents and over Rs.90,000 were recovered from their homes in the Kanhe Phata area. Thereafter, an offence was registered at the ATS police station and Bhelake and Nanaware were arrested by the ATS and produced before the court on Tuesday. The report filed by the ATS in court read, “The duo was on the run in connection with an offence registered in the Chandrapur district. They had obtained forged documents to hide their identity. The agency has recovered PAN cards, Aadhar cards, incriminating literature and Rs.90,530 from their homes in Pune. They are involved in Naxal campaigns and recruiting youths for Naxal or Maoist activities.”

Bhelke was in touch with 30 youths: ATS

PUNE: Arun Bhelke, the alleged recruiter of the banned CPI (Maoist) group, was in contact with about 30 youths from different parts of the city in the past one year, investigations of the state anti-terrorism squad (ATS) have revealed. The Pune unit of the ATS recovered the list of these youths from the rented room where Bhelke and his wife, Kanchan Nanaware alias Bhomi (31), lived. Nanaware has also been arrested for her alleged involvement in recruiting youths for the banned outfit. Bhanupratap Barge, senior inspector of the ATS, Pune, told TOI that Bhelke had identified youths from Bhavani Peth, Kasewadi, Lohiyanagar, Maharshinagar, Market Yard, Ghorpadigaon, Premnagar, Solapur Bazaar, Mangalwar Peth, Ramtekdi, Hadapsar Gadital, Sahakarnagar and other areas. “Bhelke chose two youths from each area. About 30 from these areas were in contact with him,” Barge said.

The ATS has also recovered a laptop and CDs from a vada-pav and tea stall that Bhelke and Nanaware had rented. “The CDs are mainly used for training. One of the CDs shows how Maoists had abducted three policemen, interrogated them and later killed them. We suspect that this incident may have taken place sometime in 2008,” Barge said. Bhelke had been asked to concentrate on recruiting youths from Pune and Mumbai. Further investigations are going on, he added.

Another ATS officer said that the laptop also has several photographs of Maoist men and women armed with rifles and guns. “These photographs would certainly help in the anti-naxal operations in Gadchiroli and Chandrapur districts,” the officer said. Police have also seized documents from Bhelke, written in some code. “We are trying to crack the code. Prima facie investigations revealed that Bhelke and his accomplices had planned their meetings till December. The meeting spots, names of the persons have been written in the code,” the officer said. The officer said that they have also recovered a list of some code names. “The list is old. The Maoists change their code language frequently so that the police are not able to crack it,” the officer said adding, “In that list, Maoists were using the word medical store for a railway station, the word loan was used for printing. The number 20 was used for ?We are coming’ and 10 for ?come’.” The officer said that Kanchan Nanware alias Bhoomi is also an active member of the outfit.

Naxal arrested in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district

A Maoist was arrested on Saturday in Chhattisgarh’s Dantewada district. District superintendent of police Kamalochan Kashyap said that Kosa (30), an active member of Malangir area committee of the Maoists, was arrested by a team of CRPF and district police in Kirandul police station limits of the district. Kosa was involved in Naxal activities for the past ten years, Kashyap said. He was also a member of `Dandakaranya Adiwasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangh’ of Maoists, and president of its Tikanpal unit. Kosa’s responsibilities included recruitment, spreading the Naxal propaganda among locals and conducting reccee before attacks.

Maoist party’s platoon commander and landmine expert held in Jharkhand

A platoon commander -cum-landmine expert of CPI (Maoist) outfit has been held from Kolaburu hill of Saranda forest of Naxal-hit West Singhbhum district, a senior police officer today said. Following a tip off, a combined team of CRPF and District Armed Police launched a massive search operation in the forest and apprehended Kishore Kisku alias Diwakar, a resident of Pirtand police station area of Giridih district, last night, Superintendent of Police N K Singh said.

Singh said 14 detonators, a country-made pistol, two live cartridges, one mobile phone, 8 memory cards, a radio, Naxal literature and cash over Rs 19,000, were recovered from him. Kisku was wanted in 14 Naxal-related incidents in West Singhbhum district. These included the landmine blast on Kiriburu-Karampada road in February 2006, which claimed lives of 12 CRPF jawans and an encounter in 2010 in which two policemen were killed. In the first attack k he was involved in, Kisku had blown up a residential school building in Thalkobad in June, 2006, Singh said adding that he joined the CPI (Maoist) under the influence of a Naxal leader Ajay Mahato alias Dadu in Giridih in 2004 and was shifted to Saranda later.

Under the guidance of Anmol da and Sandeep da, Maoist leaders, Kisku was trained to make and plant landmines, the top police officer said, adding that later Kisku was made “section commander” and provided fire-arms. Referring to the memory cards recovered from him, Singh said that they contain vital clues about Naxal activities and would help in police investigations.

Maoists open fire on Hawk force in Balaghat

BHOPAL: Heavy exchange of fire took place twice between Hawk force of state police and an armed squad of CPI (Maoist) at Naxalite-infested Balaghat district on Thursday evening. Encounter started when a strong Hawk force contingent entered Machurda forest area — located 30 kms from district headquarters during routine patrolling.They were heading towards the forest from the area under Birsa police station, when rebels opened fire for the first time. Commandant, who was leading the force, ordered retaliation.

Firing continued from both sides for over 15 minutes. However, no casualty was reported from either side. Maoists who were at a vantage position fired from SLRs and AK-47s, said sources. “It seems to be a change attack instead of an ambush. That was a transit point for Maoists to sneak into adjoining Maharashtra. We carried on patrolling even after they retreated. But they opened fire again after an hour,” said Sanjeev Shami, who heads state’s counter intelligence (CI) unit and monitors anti-naxal operations. Hawk force seized a 12-bore weapon which the rebels dropped while fleeing into the dense forest.

Explosives seized in Mirzapur

Mirzapur: Explosives were today seized and two persons arrested during a raid in Ahraura area of this Naxal-hit district in Uttar Pradesh. Acting on a tip off, a raid was carried out during which 2,160 gelatin rods and 3,000 detonators were seized, police said. Two persons have been arrested and were being interrogated in connection with the seizure. A jeep was also recovered from the spot and it is suspected that the vehicle was used to transport the explosives, it said. There have been several instances of recovery of explosives over the last several months in Mirzapur, which is a Naxal affected area.

Two Maoists Arrested with Machine Gun

AURANGABAD: Two Maoist cadres were arrested today from Manjhaulia Hills area in Aurangabad district of Bihar and a country-made machine gun and explosive materials were seized from them. Aurangabad SP Upendra Kumar Sharma said, “The two Maoists have been identified as Mukesh alias Brajesh and Jitendra Pal. They hail from different villages in the district. They had been involved in various acts of violence.” Mukesh is said to be of Sonarchak village in Salaiya police station and Jitendra hails from Jakhim village, he said. “They are part of the armed squad maintained by CPI (Maoist) in the area. We have seized a country-made machine gun and a pistol, ammunition, white-coloured explosive powder, urea, sulphur, other bomb-making materials, Naxal literature and uniforms from them,” said the SP.


Massive operation on in Latehar to flush Left Wing extremists

Directed by the union home ministry, joint forces comprising state and central paramilitary forces are combing the hills and suspected hideouts of Maoist rebels in Jharkhand’s Latehar district, one of India’s highly Maoist affected district. The operation launched early last week is continuing in full swing despite the late monsoon showers in the area. Police said the ongoing combing operation is a part of the security forces’ strategy for setting up Forward Camping Site (FCS) or base camps at strategic locations in highly naxal infested areas of the district.

The base camps are to be set in certain regions which are still considered to be highly under the influence of the CPI (Maoists) and where the presence of security arrangements was minimal. The entire exercise is also aimed to flush away the rebels from the state ahead of the forthcoming assembly elections. The security forces have already set up new base camps at strategic locations during this operation. “Liberating areas beyond Saryu from the clutches of the CPI (Maoists) and ensuring area domination by the security forces in those areas is one of the prime objectives of this operation,” informed one CRPF officer refusing to be quoted.

The CRPF 11 Battalion commandant SD Pandey said, “There is no looking back now. We will only rest once the task is completed.” Penetration of forces into their home turf has not gone down well with the Maoists who have attacked the forces’ camps at Kukku and Ambatikar in the last five days. A Maoists squad attacked a base camp at Ambatikar around 9 pm on Tuesday night. Forces camping here retaliated resulting in an exchange of fire which lasted nearly for an hour.

The rebels had recently stalled the construction of an ambitious bridge on North Koel River in Saryu region and asked the contractor not to proceed further without their orders. The Maoists action has jeopardised the success of the Saryu Area Development Action Plan launched by former union minister, Jairam Ramesh to develop the rebel hit district. “We have reports about presence of senior (CPI) Maoist leaders in the hills,” Latehar police superintendent Michael Raj said. “We receive directives from the union home ministry on a routine basis and act according to them,” he added.


Police destroy Maoist camp in Odisha

Bhubaneswar: Police on Wednesday destroyed a Maoist camp in Odisha’s Koraput district, an official said. Inspector General of Police (Southwestern Range) Yashwant Jethwa said the camp was destroyed in a forested area near Majhiguda village under Baipariguda police station area. He said police raided the camp and engaged in a brief gun battle with the rebels. The gun battle ended with the Maoists fleeing the area.

Two killed in crossfire between Maoist and security forces

Gumla (Jharkhand): Two persons were killed and six others were injured when they were caught in an encounter between security personnel and Maoists in Gumla district of Jharkhand today, prompting Chief Minister Hemant Soren to order a probe into the incident. “Truck driver Heeralal Oraon (30) and labourer Nilesh Oraon (26) died while Ashok Oraon, Sureshwar Oraon, Sameer Oraon and Upendra Oraon were injured in crossfire between Maoists and security forces at Marwai village under Bishanpur police station early in the morning,” said Mritunjay Kumar, Superintendent of Police (Lohardaga district), who is also acting SP of Gumla district.

Kumar said they received an information that a group of naxals have gathered in the village and the security personnel arrived there to apprehend them. When the security personnel made an attempt to intercept a bauxite-laden truck, firing started from other side, which forced them to retaliate, the SP said, adding, that it was not yet ascertained whether the victims including the truck driver were killed by security personnel or Maoists bullets. The injured were rushed to the nearby Bishanpur Community hospital, where doctors referred two seriously injured persons to Rajendra Institute Medical Science in Ranchi, Kumar said. Senior police officials including DIG (Ranchi) Praveen Kumar Singh have reached the spot to investigate the incident.

Jharkhand minister accused of founding Maoist group hits back at police

A day after being accused by the Jharkhand police of founding and funding a Maoist organisation, state agriculture minister Yogendra Sao on Thursday hit back at the police, accusing them of patronising a left wing extremist group. “The police are biased towards me,” said Sao claiming innocence. The minister said police have let lose armed cadres of Tritiya Prastuti Committee (TPC) in the coal belt by allowing them to collect huge levy unhindered.

“They are patronising all kinds of anti-social and anti-national elements, especially in coal rich Hazaribag district.” said Sao who was accused by the Hazaribad police of forming and funding Jharkhand Tigers, a left wing extremist group. Sao, a Congress legislator, represents mineral-rich Badkagaon assembly constituency. Sao, who owns a couple of mines, said he was targeted by rivals and local politicians who owe allegiance to the BJP and the AJSU.



On August 27, the MCG-generated Initiative for a Central Brooklyn Struggle Committee held an educational discussion in Bed-Stuy titled, “Against the Pigs in Ferguson, Against the Pigs in NYC.” Approximately 20 people who live in the neighborhood came together to discuss the recent uprising in Ferguson, MO, systemic racism, police violence and the need for a struggle committee.

After a spirited open discussion that lasted over an hour, there were two inspiring performances by Street Poets NYC, followed by informative presentations by the Initiative for a Central Brooklyn Struggle Committee, Organization for Black Leftist Unity, Maoist Communist Group and New Yorkers Against Bratton. After the speakers, a second open group discussion elaborated on the topics from each presentation. People in attendance contributed valuable insights on how we can struggle together against the white-supremacist, capitalist state.

We would like to share a few of the comments and testimonies from the event:

• A woman, who has lived in the neighborhood since the 1940s, stood up and testified to the difficulties of single motherhood, struggling to find work and putting her children through school. She left the group with a powerful message: the neighborhood has changed over the years and meetings like these are what we really need in order to build unity and strength among the people.

• One mother said she was so worried for her son being attacked by the cops in Brooklyn that she sent him to a rural town. But, she added, Ferguson has demonstrated that there is no place where Black people are safe from the racist police in the USA. She also said that she would walk behind boys in the neighborhood and look out for cops in order to observe the police in their interactions with young Black males.

• The images of Mike Brown lying dead in the street for several hours reminded one participant of the images of lynched bodies hanging from trees in the South. Violence against Blacks in America may have changed in form, but is the same in essence …

• One presenter talked about ‘respectability politics’ that blame Black youth culture for oppression at the hands of the white-supremacist state. In response, one participant said that when elders in the community judge the youth for the culture they adopt, such as sagging pants or listening to hip-hop, they are actually justifying racist police violence.

• Another presenter talked about the forging of the Black nation in the Black Belt South based on the history of slavery through semi-feudalism and capitalism, the relationship today between the national question and capitalist exploitation, and the non-correspondence between the rise in the incarceration of Blacks and the crime rate since the mid-1970s.

• A third presenter told a story from his childhood, when he lived in a building with a strong proletarian community. He remembered that one day the cops were beating up a kid in the street outside of his building. People from the building could see the violent scene unfolding from their windows. The entire building quickly emptied into the street, surrounded the cops and rescued the kid. He cited this as an example of what can be achieved when the people unite against the institutions that oppress us.

• One participant shared a harrowing story of a violent interaction with the police. He stressed that we need to take the group to the streets in order to mobilize the broad masses to self-organize and defend themselves against the armed detachments of the state.

The meeting concluded with the discussion of plans to continue holding more group conversations, with a view to developing and reinforcing the process of building a struggle committee.
