Condemn the Killing of 24 Alleged Maoists

27 November 2016
THE CPI(ML) Red Star severely condemns the mass killing of 24 alleged Maoists by AP and Odisha special police forces on 23rd October in the border area of these two states in mysterious circumstances. Since these uniformed state forces are notorious for numerous fake encounter killings, there are sufficient reasons for considering it also as a mass scale killing in fake encounters. We demand a investigation by the judiciary and democratic forces to bring out the truth and to punish those responsible for it.

It is a known fact that our party reject the politics and practice of the CPI(Maoist) and has repeatedly callled on it to join the Marxist-Leninist forces and to follow the mass line. At the same time we consider them as a political force. We have demanded repeatedly that the central and state governments should initiate discussions with it to solve the problem politically. Instead, the consecutive central and state governments are trying to suppress it through police and para-military action. It has led to barbarous attacks against the adivasis in the regions and to numerous fake encounter killings. We condemn these heinous acts of state terror and demand political solution to the Maoist problem.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
