NAGPUR: The banned Communist Party of India (Maoist) has released a plan for its supporters to spread their influence in urban centres across the country ‘with open and secret organizations infiltrating and inciting agitations and mass revolutions against the government’. In the same context, the group claims to have successfully infiltrated the farmers’ agitation at Delhi, which forced the government to roll back three farm laws.
The Maoists have also urged units in rural and urban sectors to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the party with zeal between September 21 and 27.
The 21-page document is titled ‘A message from the central committee (CC) of the CPI (Maoist) to the ranks of the party, revolutionary people’s organs and revolutionary people, on the occasion of the 18th anniversary of the party’. The reds have urged their members, sympathizers, associates, supporters and mass based open and secret committees and organizations to implement the guidelines of their apex body to guide, provoke and infiltrate ‘spate of people’s movement’ across the country.
The Maoist think tank body asserted that the party’s covert activities helped infiltrate several agitations through ‘united actions forum’ in different parts of the country’s urban centres like Odisha and Telangana, and also rural parts like at Silinger in Chhattisgarh, ‘despite the oppressive government campaigns like Samadhan-Prahar’. The exhaustive CC document, a copy of which is with GLOBAL PRABHAT, lists its success at the farmers’ agitation in the capital last year, which it claimed channelised it into a violent flare up forcing the government to withdraw three farm laws. Similarly, they also mentioned infiltrating into the ‘Agniveer’ protests.
During the party’s 18th anniversary celebrations, the Maoists have urged cadres to intensify guerilla warfare to liberate and develop Dandakaranya, which includes eastern Vidarbha’s Gadchiroli and Gondia, Bihar, Jharkhand, and adjoining areas, into liberated zones. The cadres have been urged to strengthen mass base.
The Maoist document claims that 124 cadres, including 30 women, were neutralised by the government forces. They also mention the loss of Maharashtra’s top cadre and CC member Milind Teltumbde, who was neutralized last year by C60 Commandos of Gadchiroli with 26 cadres.
SP Gadchiroli Ankit Goyal said area domination exercises would be stepped up before September 21, and intense operations would be launched to thwart any subversive activities. “The Maoists are now refocusing on urban centres, as there has been considerable loss to their mass base and support in the hinterlands,” said Goyal.
Deputy inspector general of police Sandip Patil, also heading the State Anti-Naxal Operations (ANO) cell, said cops from urban units are being sensitized about the activities of frontal organizations, and how to identify them in agitations and protests among the masses. “Maharashtra has 84 banned frontal organizations. There is a proposal before the government to enact the Public Security Act, which would help security forces act against frontal organizations and ban their activities in urban centres, which is their current point of consolidation,” said Patil.
