Statements

2/10/2021: Publication by the CPI(Maoist) of the following statement against new counterinsurgency plans of the old Indian state and its regional governments:

Defeat a new and higher counter revolutionary operation Prahaar planned by the Centre against Maoists

“On 26th Sept the Indian Home minister conducted a review meeting with Maoist movement 10 states Chief ministers and police bosses in New Delhi. In this meeting deputy home minister Nityanand Roy and home secretary Ajay Kumar Balla and Intelligence bureau director Arvind Kumar were also participated along with some other central ministers.

The home minister on the name of development apparently directed to concentrate one year on Maoist issue to eliminate it completely. He prepared a detailed new and higher military plan to eliminate the Maoists in the stipulated time. He promised to provide the huge funds and additional forces to the effected states according to their requirements. Our central regional bureau (Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Odisha, Chattisgarh and Maharashtra) giving a call to defeat that ferocious counter revolutionary campaign in the leadership of PLGA.

Now the home minister put aside the national security adviser who was planned the previous military operation prahaar which was conducted in between 2020 Nov to 2021 June. It was completely defeated by the peopleʹs war. The state and central forces got heavy losses in that campaign. According to the latest DKSMC (Dandakaranya Special Military Commission) report under the PLGA leadership the revolutionary masses and the peopleʹs militia eliminated at least 90 police men and injured 269.

Due to the failure of their 8 months mission now the central home minister personally took the responsibility and prepared a new and higher operation plan on the pretext of development and gave a political color to it. He left all the peopleʹs issues aside and prepared a military plan to eradicate the Maoists with a big budget. The Indian ruling classes are facing a neck deep financial and political crises.

The toiling masses are fighting against the anti-peoples policies of the center. The ruling classes know very well about that they did not have any chances to implement their anti-people policies without elimination of Maoists. Thatʹs why they recognized long back them as a single largest threat for internal security. Since a long back they are continuously conducting the military operations against Maoists but the heroic people retaliated all under the brave leadership of PLGA.

So, at present our bureau requesting all the pro revolutionary people to stand firmly in support of CPI (Maoist) to defeat the new and higher military operation to save the Indian revolution. Our bureau is appealing friends of Indian revolution abroad to build a strong solidarity movement in support of Indian Peopleʹs war.

With revolutionary greetings

Pratap
Spokes Person,
Central Regional Bureau,
CPI (Maoist)”

Guerrilla Combat

1/10/2021: Ambush of a column of the 94th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army (IBPA) by a NPA unit in Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, wounding four and gaining manoeuvering advantage. We quote the Philippine Revolution Web Central (PRWC):

“[…] a unit of the MCC-NPA attacked an isolated column of the 94th IB conducting combat operations at Sitio Kubay-Anahaw, Barangay Carabalan, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental on October 1 around 9 o’clock in the morning.

1/10/2021: Sniping ambush of reactionary army units operating under the Retooled Community Support Program (RCSP) by the BHB East Camarines Sur at Goa in Camarines Sur in retribution of the brutal military rule employed by the RCSP in the region. We quote the PRWC:

“Tomas Pilapil Command (TPC)-BHB East Camarines Sur lauds the successful snipe operations carried out by its valiant fighters last October 1, 2021, 2 pm, at Brgy. Scout Fuentebella, Goa, Camarines Sur. Killed in the atritive action was PFC Jerry D. Pabia Jr., one of the butcher military troops performing RCSP in the towns of Goa, Lagonoy and Garchitorena.
Troops of the 83rd IBPA, 96th IBPA and 9th CMO Battalion have been in the area since May. They have been wreaking havoc in five barrios of Goa, five barrios of Lagonoy and eight barrios of Garchitorena since then. From May to July, they have also operated in 23 of the 36 barrios of Tinambac.
The said atritive action is part of the campaign to achieve preliminary justice for the residents of Partido Area who have been continually suffering under the martial law-like rule of RCSP. This is a contribution to the anti-militarization movement of Partido Area masses who are struggling to break free from the tethers of militarization which doubly puts them in harm along with the restrictions caused by the pandemic. This further worsens the lack of livelihood the residents experience.
The comrades’ successful efforts until the complete riddance of the butcher military from the communities are all for the people of Camarines Sur. They can depend on the comrades’ unabiding perseverance to achieve justice for them and make the military pay for all their crimes against the people of Partido Area.

Long Live the New People’s Army!
Justice to all victims of state terrorism!”
