Disquiet on the Deccan Front

Ultra left extortion rackets. A police force disarmed by its own government. Demands that could dismantle Cyberabad. Sonu Chhina travels to Andhra Pradesh’s scare-a-minute Naxalite heartland. Ritesh Uttamchandani goes along with his camera

It’s Red alert now

Andhra Pradesh might soon lose the sheen of Cyberabad as People’s War leader Ramakrishna wants the lands given to corporate houses in the city back. The Congress was confident that it was voted to power by the people of the State due to their disenchantment with the Telugu Desam Party. But then it has now to meet an extra-constitutional, extra-legal authority who plans to dictate the Congress “people’s” agenda. By giving a long lease to Naxalites, Andhra might soon witness a flight of capital, of the sort we saw in West Bengal. The ban on PW imposed by the former TDP Government might have lapsed but the PW and Maoist Communist Centre continue to be on the black-list of terrorist groups drawn by the UPA Government. The State Congress Government, by ingratiating itself to the Naxalites, is perhaps waiting for the menace to snowball. Read More

Naxal merger a threat: Report November 11, 2004

Naxal merger a threat: Report

New Delhi, Nov. 10: The recent merger of the People’s War and the Maoist Communist Centre of India will “amplify” the Naxal threat, the Centre has said in a recent assessment made for a committee of MPs. When the two Naxalite groups joined to become the Communist Party of India-Maoist, Home Minister Shivraj Patil’s immediate reaction had been cautious. He told reporters that the development could even turn out to be good. The PWG has begun a dialogue with Andhra Pradesh government, and he implied that the MCCI, too, could become part of the peace effort.

But the Home Ministry’s “initial analysis” — which figured in a paper prepared for last week’s meeting of the consultative committee attached to the ministry — said the merger would “amplify the Naxal violence”, particularly in West Be-ngal, Orissa and Uttar Pradesh. In these States, the “military prowess” of People‘s War will combine with “mass activities” of the MCCI. It said the merger aimed at “strengthening the movement to meet the aspirations of the masses“’.

“Overall, it wo-uld augment the organisational, military and technological capabilities of the two outfits in a vast geographical spread, posing a serious challenge to the security scenario,” the Ministry said. The two groups account for 90 per cent of deaths countrywide due to Naxalite violence, the paper said. Up to September-end this year, Naxalite violence had claimed 436 lives in 1,215 incidents — compared to 388 deaths in a similar number of cases during the same period last year.

Twelve States are affected. Apart from the PW-MCCI merger, the Ministry paper also drew attention to “linkages” of Naxalite groups in India with the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist). “CPN (Maoist), Nepal has increased its activities in the Tarai region of Nepal bordering India,” it said. There was “regular exchange of men and material” between the Maoists in Nepal and local Naxal outfits. The PW, MCCI and the CPN (Maoists) planned to spread into new areas to carve out a “compact revolutionary group”, spreading from Nepal, through Bihar and to the Dandakaranya region of AP.

According to the Home Ministry assessment, there were about 7,000 hard-core Naxalites in the country. They hold about 6,300 regular weapons “and a large number of unlicensed country-made weapons”. The PW and the MCCI had built up expertise in making IEDs and landmines, it said. The Ministry also noted an increase in “people’s courts” held by Naxalites. During 2002, 100 ‘Jan Adalats’ were held and eight executions ordered.

Naxal cadre recruitment no cause for concern — COngress Minister

By Our Staff Reporter KARIMNAGAR,

OCT. 17. 2004

The Minister for Endowments, M. Satyanarayana Rao, has supported the recruitment drive by various naxalite groups during the period of peace talks. “What is wrong in it? They (naxalites) should grow as a political party and capture power in a peaceful and democratic process.” Addressing a press conference here on Sunday, the Minister called upon naxalites to increase their strength and gain public sympathy to attain power. Neither naxalites could attain their goal with weapons nor the police could solve the problem with weapons, he said adding that peace talks were the only solution. Welcoming the peace initiative taken by the State Government, he said the Government was committed to the implementation of land reforms. He said the peace talks were only a beginning and it would take a long time for completion. TRS remarks Read More

Naxalites give new dimension to land issue

By Our Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD, OCT. 17. 2004 Naxalites created a flutter in political circles today when they released a list of 43 individuals who had allegedly encroached upon prime land in and around the twin cities.

The list reads like a who’s who of persons in the fields of real estate, film industry and information technology. The naxalites caught the Government off-guard with their demand to re-take these lands. The official side had expected Maoist and Janashakti leaders to highlight injustices in distribution of Government land under various categories and had even come prepared with its responses. Sources said the `wish list’ was meant to be a symbolic attack against what they describe as `neo-landed gentry’ which was dictating terms to the Government with its political clout.

KOLKATA, OCT. 15. Yesterday’s violence in West Bengal’s West Midnapore district, in which six jawans of the Eastern Frontier Rifles (EFR) were killed (four had died yesterday and two today) has queered the pitch for immediate talks between the State Government and the People’s War, suspected to be responsible for the attack.

Less than a fortnight ago, the Chief Minister, Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, had told The Hindu that an essential pre-condition for such talks was the laying down of arms by the ultras. Read more

Naxals Extortion spree continues

Professionals a worried lot

By Vikram Sharma

HYDERABAD, OCT. 15 .2004

The People’s War (PW) and the State Government are sitting across the table discussing peace. On one side, the peace initiative is going on, while in the other hand, there is a talk going on that some professionals have been receiving letters or calls, allegedly from PW members, demanding huge amounts. But then, it could also be the handiwork of some pseudo-naxalites, who, by using the names of various dalams, are extorting money from the rich and well known. “They are holding so many public meetings, from where do you think the money is coming from? In their recent meeting at Warangal, they collected money from local businessmen for providing food and other amenities to those who participated in the meeting. Ultimately, the business class is going to suffer, be it talks or not, as they are resorting to extortion,” says a businessman, Praneet Singhvee of Kushalchand Private Limited. Read more

Uproot Hinduism, says PWG

Hyderabad, Oct. 13: People’s War Group State secretary Ramakrishna on Wednesday said that uprooting Hinduism would provide a solution to social ills. Asked whether the PWG would agree with Ambedkar’s philosophy of uprooting Hinduism, Ramakrishna said Hinduism was being nurtured by feudals and overthrowing these forces would automatically lead to Hinduism being rooted out.

He said, “We will deal with it in our own fashion and we will achieve the goal.” The issue would not figure in the agenda in the talks with the government. But his stand became a sticking point when it seemed as if he was positioning the PWG as the sole saviour of the Dalits. Read more…..
