Deadly Battle between the Maoists and the Indian Cobras

brotee mukhopadhyay

Indian state of Chhattisgarh, from 18th September, 2009, has been experiencing a deadly battle between the Maoists brand of Indian communists and the especially built-up fierce army personnel named ‘Cobra Forces’. The site is the forests of Singamadagu district which is 500 km away from the capital city of Raigarh.

Casualties on the both sides, 8 from the Maoists and 5 from the Cobras, have been reported. One Wing Commander of the Cobra Forces has also been killed during the battle.

Indian Prime Minister has reportedly stated that the Maoists brand of the Indian communists have recently gained strength. They have spread influence in more or less 200 districts and in a few of them their writs are run. They have developed parallel government operation and even introduced their style of education in some regions. They have been regular in recruiting men for the guerrilla army who get rigorous training in the hides of the forested mountains.

India has, so far, generated dozens of communist parties however ridiculous this may appear. Parliamentary communist parties such as CPI (M), CPI, RSP and others have been found to be good servants of the landlords and the bourgeois classes and these parties have already taken position against the toiling mass. They have thus reasoned the emergence and growth of the Maoist brand. Union and state governments of India have also contributed a lot paying little attention to the rural and urban jobless people. Maoists have secured fertile soil in a state where more or less 40 percent of the population is said to live under the poverty line.

Indian communists who are officially obedient to the Indian parliamentary system have been at times found to be very much violent in securing political hegemony or power whereas Maoists are the most violent political activists at present in the soil of India and they are committed to the Chinese slogan ‘political power emerges from the battle of the guns’.
