Red corridor expanding in Maharashtra, Odisha and Telangana

9503_maoistsEven as the Narendra Modi’s government readies a new anti-Maoist doctrine, Maoist seems to be gaining ground in the districts of Maharashtra and Odisha, where they had considerably diminished under the previous regime. As per the half yearly report of the Central Intelligence Committee, accessed by India Today, the district of Gadchiroli in Maharashtra which was once cited by the Manmohan Singh government as the model for other Left Wing affected States has witnessed mass killings.
There were 44 incidents reported in which 22 lives including that of civilians were lost in 2014 as compared to 40 incidents and 8 deaths in 2013 during the same period, the report states. The red corridor has also made new inroads into the newly carved state of Telangana and renamed themselves as Telangana State Committee (TSC) replacing the erstwhile North Telangana Special Zone Committee (NTSZC). Similarly, Odisha has witnessed a surge with 65 incidents and 13 killings in 2014 as against 40 and 10 deaths in 2013. The note further remarks, “The CPI (Maoist) continues to maintain its dominance in the Koraput, Malkangiri and Rayagada districts of southern Odisha.”
The report also states that only 37 Naxals were killed in the first half of the year as compared to 52 last year during the same period. “The period witnessed increasing attacks on police post with 93 incidents in 2014 as compared to 65 such attacks during the corresponding period in 2013,” it stated. However, it was suggested in the report that overall violence has “marginally” declined with 597 incidents being reported from LWE areas as compared to 593 in 2013. The committee headed by cabinet secretary Ajit Lal also observed that security forces suffered set back on during the Maoist’s annual tactical counter offensive campaign (TCOC) which coincided the Lok Sabha elections.
“There were two major attacks one in Chhattisgarh in which 15 security personnel and a civilian were killed and another in Maharashtra in which seven policemen were killed. During this year TCOC, 26 weapons were lost by the policemen as against the target of 100,” the report stated. As per the report, the arrest and surrender of top Maoist cadres is also the reason of worry for the Maoist as the outfit discussed the decline in number of youth cadres. The deficiencies which were noted during the Maoist leaders meeting included, “desertion of cadres and increase in non-proliferation tendencies in both the party and the PLGA as well as in the People’s Revolutionary Committee. It was admitted that a bureaucratic approach towards people was eating at the base of party’s support among the people. This in turn has led to a decline in the recruitment, particularly in the Western and Northern region” it was noted in the report.
