..In the two years after the NDA government led by Modi came to power,
the combined assault of state terrorism and Hindutva fascism is intensifying day by day.
The Maoist movement and different democratic movements, Muslims and Christians,
Dalits, Adivasis, national minorities, women and other oppressed genders, workers,
peasants, intellectuals, academics, students, artists and other sections of the
vast masses of people have come under their severe assault.
Raman Singh, for instance, promised a hike of additional 300 rupees
to the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for rice to the peasants but instead
it has reduced the MSP by 40 percent.
On the other hand, it is spending thousands of crores of rupees
on police and paramilitary forces in the name of anti-Maoist operations.
Similarly, yesterday the BJP government of Jharkhand resorted to police
firing to suppress the people agitating against forcible land acquisition,
killing one demonstrator. In such conditions prevailing across the country,
the democratic movement to resist this fascist assault must be intensified
and expanded by uniting all the forces in opposition to the comprador-feudal Hindutva
fascism of BJP and Sangh Parivar.
Opposition to the third phase of Operation Green Hunt
is a significant a part of this resistance.
Maoist revolutionaries have taken up arms for the just cause
of the people and the country after all peaceful avenues for the
people to establish genuine democracy, freedom, sovereignty, self-reliance,
progress, prosperity and people’s political power were closed by
the country’s reactionary rulers. The history of our country and
other semi-colonial and semi-feudal countries of the world has
shown conclusively that only through a protracted people’s war can
these objectives be achieved. ...Top government functionaries like Rajnath Singh
are portraying the revolutionary movement fighting for the sacred cause of the
people and the country as a criminal and terrorist movement and
are issuing repeated calls for surrender.
At the same time, they are deploying more and more armed forces
and introducing more and more lethal weapons including combat
helicopters to suppress the people, raising more armed forces and
vigilante gangs and taking further repressive steps..
