Balaghat District, July 30, 2022: Cadres of the CPI (Maoist) have put up banners in Balaghat district of Madhya Pradesh, giving a call to observe ‘ Shaheed Saptah‘ or ‘martyrs’ week’, which prompted the police to step up security in the area, an official said on July 30, 2022.
Balaghat, located in the southeastern region of Madhya Pradesh, is one of the three Maoist-affected districts in the State with Mandla and Dindori being the other two.
“Naxals put up banners and left pamphlets on Friday in Sonewani area under Roopjhar police station limits, in which they gave a call to observe ‘ Shaheed Saptah‘ from July 28 to August 3,” Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Aditya Prakash Mishra said. Police are investigating how these banners reached the area, he said.
“However, there is no information about the presence of Naxals in this area. Intensive patrolling is being carried out to monitor the situation and security has been increased,” ASP Mishra added.
In the banners and posters, the Maoists have given a call to hold condolence meetings and construct memorials in memory of slain Maoists.
Martyrs’ week is observed by the CPI (Maoist) during this period every year, in memory of their leader Charu Mazumdar, who died in police custody on July 27, 1972 in West Bengal.
In June of this year, three Maoists, including a member of the divisional committee of the CPI (Maoist), were killed in an encounter with security forces in Balaghat district.
One of them was divisional committee member Nagesh aka Raju Tulavi (40), who had cases filed against him in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh.
In a demonstration RSF remembered the marthyrdom of comrade Charu Majumdar and of comrade Kanai Chatterjee and all the martyrs of the revolution, they students also asked for the liberation of all political prisoners, they burned a flag of Trinamool-BJP, finally they swear the oath: “Let’s remember the marhtyrs who paid with their blood” and they sang the “International”.
Visakhapatnam District, July 23, 2022: Five days before the commencement of the Maoist Martyrs’ Week, the secretary of the CPI (Maoist) Andhra Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee, Comrade Ganesh, has released a letter urging the tribal people to make the programme being held from July 28 to August 3 a success.
The letter has surfaced at a time when the Maoist movement is at its lowest ebb in the Andhra-Odisha Border (AOB) region.
Saluting the Maoists, especially Central Committee members such as Tapan da, Chintan da, Amber da and Saket da, who had died of illness in the last one year, and Milind Teltumbde, who was killed in an encounter at Gadchiroli in Maharashtra state, Ganesh pointed out that in the last one year the CPI (Maoist) had lost about 124 members, including 12 in the AOB region.
Accepting that the Maoists had received a setback in the AOB region, Comrade Ganesh said the party was gearing up for a comeback and would regain its glory in the region.
Criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “anti-people policies,” Comrade Ganesh said the BJP-led government at the Centre had plunged the country into a financial crisis and that the common people were suffering due to the “abnormal price rise of essential commodities.”
He alleged that abrogation of Article 370, GST, demonetization, farm and labour laws, and Agnipath were anti-people policies, and that those who opposed them were being branded as “Urban Naxals.”
He also criticized Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and Naveen Patnaik, Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha, for toeing the BJP line and not opposing its policies.
“In Andhra Pradesh, natural resources are being sold to private parties for a cheaper rate. Poverty, unemployment and farmer suicide have reached an all-time high,” Comrade Ganesh alleged.
“Debts are on the rise and the State government is mobilizing more loans to repay the debts, which will plunge Andhra Pradesh into an economic meltdown,” he said.
Alleging that police atrocities were on the rise, Comrade Ganesh said the police were resorting to intimidating tactics to suppress the voice of the adivasis by setting up armed outposts and camps in the interior tribal areas. “To create fear among the tribals, aggressive combing operation is being undertaken,” Comrade Ganesh alleged.
Martyrs’ Week is observed every year to commemorate the death anniversary of Charu Mazumdar, who had initiated the Naxalite movement in West Bengal in 1967 with the Naxalbari uprising.
Mazumdar died in police custody on July 28, 1972.
This year, the Maoists are planning to observe the week in a big way, as it will be the 50 death anniversary of Mazumdar and the 40th death anniversary of Kanai Chatterjee, the founder of the Maoist Communist Centre of India (MCCI).
Kondapalli Seetharamaiah’s Communist Party of India (Marxist–Leninist) People’s War or People’s War Group (PWG) had merged with the MCCI to form the present CPI (Maoist) in September 2004.
The International Committee to Support the People’s War in India calls on the entire world proletariat, revolutionary and democratic organizations to actively participate in the week of martyrs called by the Communist Party of India (Maoist) from July 28 to August 3rd.

Fight back the new Forest Conservation Rules
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) strongly condemns the new Forest Conservation Rules made by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) on the 28″‘ oflune. The rules made for the implementation of the Forest Conservation Act (FCA), 1980 that were amended without following any Constitutional formalities are in violation to all the Acts and rights regarding the indigenous people of the country, mainly the rights of the Gram Sabhas as per the Panchayat Extension to Scheduled Areas (PESA), 1996 and the Forest Rights Act, 2006. The rules allow the imperialist and the comprador bureaucratic bourgeois companies such as the Adanis and the Ambanis to take up projects and mining in the forest areas without difficulty of getting permission from the government.
The present regulations violate the Forest Rights Act of 2006 that provided rights to the tribal farmers cultivating the land for the past 75 years. These are also against the judgment of the Supreme Court in 2013 that made clear the need of permission of Gram Sabha to enjoy the forest land. The Central government had the authority through a specially constituted Forest Advisory Committee (FAC) to permit non-forestry activity beyond five hectares of forest land. After 2009, the Environment Ministry passed an order that said that the FAC will not go through the proposals unless the state government clears the matter and the Gram Sabha consents. Later, the Ministry gave a number of orders all that went against the rights of Gram Sabha. According to the new rules that are against the rules originally issued in 2003, the FAC will approve a project and pass it on to the state government for the rest of the process. This means that the local government authorities will have the total powers to approve a proposal. Out of the 240 proposals in the first half of 2019, 193 were recommended by the FAC that would amount to the acquisition of 9,220.64 hectares of forest land for the construction of roads, rail lines, mining, irrigation, infrastructure and hydel power. This reveals that the government had been violating the rights of the indigenous for a long time and now made it formal.
The new Forest Conservation Rules are part of the Hindutva agenda of the Brahmanic Hindutva Fascist central government in the leadership of BJP of ‘new India’. There is a severe danger from the rules not only to the tribal people but the natural wealth of the country that concerns all the classes and sections of the society. So, all the revolutionary, democratic, tribal, human rights organisations, pro-people NGOs and individuals need to mobilise in a big way to fight those back. The CC calls upon the entire oppressed classes, sections and patriots of the country to come together in struggle against the rules, in the spirit of the victorious farmers’ struggle. It calls upon to take up a concrete program during the monsoon session of the Parliament that would probably make an ordinance in this regard. It calls upon to observe the International Day of the Indigenous on August 9″‘ as a day of protest to the new regulations.
