MHA Warns Bengal of Possible Maoist Strikes Ahead of I-Day
KOLKATA:The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has warned the West Bengal government of possible attacks by the Maoist ultras in the run-up to the Independence Day and asked it to beef up security across the state. After the report from the Central intelligence agencies reached State Secretariat, Nabanna, state Home Secretary Basudeb Banerjee and DGP G M P Reddy held a high-level meeting and directed senior police officials to take adequate measures to combat the possible Maoist attacks.
The IB report stated that at least 60 youth, including women from Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand had joined the military wing of the Maoists and they had been divided into squads comprising 10 members. On August 2, the Maoists had infiltrated into Belpahari in the state’s Jangalmahal region that comprises four districts of Western Bengal. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee before leaving for New Delhi, without naming the Maoists admitted that a report had been received about a political party trying to resort to ‘extremist activities in the state’. The IB on the basis of ‘specific intelligence inputs’ came to know that on August 2 night, the Maoists held a meeting at Gurabandha in Jharkhand near the West Bengal border.
The meeting was chaired by the recently appointed West Bengal CPI (Maoist) state secretary Akash and was attended by many other senior Maoist leaders. And the meeting had vowed to avenge the death of Manjulla Koteswara Rao, who was popularly known as Kishenji and organise large-scale attacks in the state, particularly at Belpahari in West Mindapore district. Last month at a public meeting at Belpahari in West Midnapore district, Mamata’s Lok Sabha MP nephew Abhisekh Banerjee had proudly declared, “Earlier everyday in Jangalmahal people were being killed. During the last four years there was only one murder. Mamata’s Government by killing Kishenji has proved that the people have the last word.” Kishenji, a top CPI(Maoist) leader from Andhra Pradesh, who was in charge of West Bengal and a member of the party’s central military commission, was killed in an encounter at Burisol village in the same district on November 11, 2011, five months after Mamata stormed to power.
Incidentally, Kishenji had appealed to the people to vote for the TMC and against the CPM-led Left Front Government. The IB report stated that the Maoists’ first target was Belpahari and for the last one month their cadre could be seen entering the state from Jharkhand and secretly campaigning among the villagers.

Naxalism baring its fangs in Kerala once more?
The very mention of Naxalism in Kerala evokes dreadful memories of Narayankutty Menon, a landlord in Kongad village in Palakkad district, who was beheaded ‘in one slash’ by a group of 20 Naxalites. The late 1960s saw many such sensational attacks by armed naxalites on policemen and landlords in North Kerala. Though the former Chief Minister late K Karunakaran and his hand-picked police officers like Jayaram Padikkal and K Lakshamana had to face the flak for ruthlessly dealing with Naxalites, their strong-arm tactics helped root out Naxalism from Kerala soil.
Since then, many leaders of the Naxalite movement like K Ajitha, Grow Vasu, Philip M Prasad and K Venu laid down arms and took to normal family and social life. Of late, there are disturbing signs of the armed movement rearing its head again in the garb of CPI-Maoist, a new party formed by merging two Naxalite outfits — The CPI-Maoist and CPI-ML-Naxalbari. Last year, there was a chain of attacks involving Maoists across the state. The corporate offices of NGIL and Nitta Gelatin in Kochi, a private tourist resort in Thirunelli in Wayanad district, Forest Range Office at Mukkali near Silent Valley, KFC and McDonald’s outlets in Palakkad district, police stations in Wayanad district and a stone crusher unit in Kannur were among the targets of Maoist attacks.
Intelligence inputs suggest that there is a meticulously-woven Maoist network in the jungle zones of Kerala. Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala himself has told the state assembly that the government was in receipt of intelligence reports of Maoist presence in six districts of the state — Palakkad, Malappuram, Kozhikode, Wayanad, Kannur, and Kasaragod. Police have seized pro-Maoist flex boards and wall posters in some places in these districts exhorting the working class to prepare for an ‘armed battle’ against the ‘ruling elite’. The state intelligence has warned of the presence of CPI-Maoist cadres in tourist destinations in the state, including Alappuzha.
