The Acorn points to this editorial in Indian Express which talks about the gains made by the Naxalites in India. (Naxalites are Communists who think that murdering others is the best way to advance their causes). While the spread of Naxalites are increasing, the Govt is going soft on them. But the troubling news is that, these Communists are anti-nationals as well.
The “admission” by the Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) leaders comes in the wake of Chhattisgarh Home Minister Brij Mohan Agarwal’s charge Sunday that Maoists used Pakistani and Britain-made bullets for killing three state police personnel in Sarguja district on Saturday.
Maoist commandoes Kosa and Aaytu told reporters Sunday in a hideout in the state’s southern Dantewada forests, about 420 km from state capital Raipur, that they exchange notes with Pakistani militants on methods of war and accept modern weapons from Pakistan.
Kosa said: “The way we made a base in Bihar, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and have been progressing in Orissa, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal, we will be able to capture 30-35 percent of India by 2010.” [Maoists ‘admit’ to Pakistani links]
The aim of CPI(Maoist) is is to establish a Compact Revolutionary Zone and then take their armed struggle to other parts of India.
