The government in
India is making a special effort to wipe the Maoist guerrilla influence out of the areas of West Bengal, Odisha and Jharkhand.
The First Post of India is reporting that Security forces of
West Bengal, Odisha and Jharkhand (April 14) decided to launch a joint operation against Maoists in their common border areas.
After the failed Operation Green Hunt, the government has high hopes this time they will wipe out the Maoist from these key areas. They hope to exploit some factional differences between the Maoist groups. One Indian Bourgeois outlet, The New Indian Express, even went as far as claiming “Prospect of elimination of Maoists in Jharkhand now real”.
There have been reported attacks on the government by Maoists. Times of India reported five policemen killed in an ambush on April 5.
Also an outfit called Kractivist reports that a group of young lawyers in Ranchi has decided to take up, gratis, cases of thousands of tribals branded as Maoists and shoved into jails across Jharkhand every year.
The lawyers, who have named their organization Jharkhand Organization for Human Rights(JOHAR), have initiated a survey to pick out such cases and offer them free legal consultation.
There are always setbacks in any revolution, but most of the time, the government becomes overconfident and overlooks the reality that people there have to live with and their determination for change. That is why Operation Green Hunt failed and if all goes well, this new operation will also fail in the long run. Any factional differences are not likely to allow the Maoist movement in the Red Corridor to disintegrate into defeat. For the last decade, the various Maoist trends have prevented that from happening.
We can only put faith in the masses of
and support their defeat of this latest government effort to destroy them. India
Victory over the right-wing assholes that run the Indian Government must be our priority.
