No future of the Maoists ideology, says super cop Prakash Singh
Raipur, 24 March. The outlawed left-wing ultras of the Communist Party of India ( Maoist) who have been facing an existantial threat with the security forces inching closer to flush them out of their hitherto unchallenged stronghold in Abujhmaad of Bastar, have urged human rights activists and progressive liberals to come to their rescue in defeating operation ‘ Samadhan- Prahar’.
Urging a galaxy of the human right and progressive activists and intellectuals to force the government to stop operation ‘Samadhan-Prahaar’, aimed at wiping out the Maoist movement, Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee of Maoists spokesperson Vikalp said in a statement issued today that the progressive forces should come to the rescue of the Maoists in the same way as they did in defeating the Salwa Judum and operation ‘green hunt’. He also criticized the government for allegedly deploying personnel from Indian armed forces in the garb of paramilitary jawans.
Ultras have given a countrywide protest call beginning from April 1 to April 26. Nearly a month-long protest will be concluded with a nation-wide Bandh on 26 April.
Meanwhile, super cop and former UP Police Chief Prakash Singh has warned outlawed Left Wing Extremists in state capital Raipur today that they should understand that their ideology has no future.
Addressing a gathering of peace activists who held a march through the Naxal violence-affected areas of Bastar, this highly decorated former officer of Indian Police Service Said that “the government should know that it cannot end the Maoist movement with reprisals. Similarly, the Maoists should also understand that their ideology has no future”. His appeal coincides with a fresh spike in Naxal violence and their simultaneous peace offer.
Therefore, they should come forward to resolve the issue through dialogue, he said. The lecture was held in Raipur after the Checkley Mandi meeting, Gondi word Checkley Mandi means meeting for happiness and peace.
Peace march which began on 12 March in Maoist hit Narayanpur ended in state capital Raipur yesterday. Peace marchers organized Chackle Mandi, a conference of the victims of both sides, today which was attended by several eminent personalities of the nation. Echoing a true Gandhian spirit, victims of Naxal violence and police repression said that they have no enmity with each other. They want to see peace and prosperity in Bastar. Dayalu Ram Negi of Ghumar village in Kanker district said that although the police had him unnecessarily imprisoned for 33 months, he has no ill-will towards the police.
Punai Dugga said that she had spent more than 10 years in the Maoist movement before surrendering but she is unable to go to her village now because of prevailing fear. This violence should end, she said. She said that if the victims of Maoists and police atrocities can walk together have dialogue, then why can’t the government and Maoists do it?
All these victims have been traveling on foot from last March 12 to Maoists headquarters, Abujhmad to the government headquarters Raipur, and want to do a satyagraha for both sides to initiate dialogue to resolve this menace.
