Maoists whip up support abroad

Ashutosh Bhardwaj : Raipur, Mon Nov 25 2013

The CPI (Maoist) has emerged as a “role model” for the Communist movement across the world, according to revolutionary groups based outside India which have pledged support to it. The revelation could add to the worries of the government, which considers the Maoist group as India’s “biggest internal security threat”.

The support for CPI (Maoist) was voiced at the first International Conference in Support of the People’s War in India, which was attended by delegates of Communist parties from more than two dozen countries. It was held exactly a year ago in Hamburg on November 24, 2012 to commemorate the first death anniversary of Maoist leader Mallojula Koteshwara Rao alias Kishenji, who was killed in an encounter in West Bengal.

While senior members of the CPI (Maoist) have established contacts with revolutionaries in other countries, it was the first time a major international seminar was held to pledge support — financial, cultural and strategic — to the outfit and emphasised their global strategic significance.

The seminar was jointly organised by the International Committee to Support the People’s War in India and the Hamburg-based League Against Imperialist Aggression. In fact, the Committee was formed in Paris in January 2010, purely considering the strategic advantage the CPI (Maoist) lent to the global movement. Now it has branches in several countries to support the CPI (Maoist).

According to copies of speeches and presentation made by the delegates, available with The Indian Express, the CPI (Maoist) has become a “red linchpin” for the Communist movement across the globe. “The victory of the people’s war in India would change the global balance of strength between imperialism and oppressed nations. The people’s war in India is an important common point of reference for all of us, it is a red linchpin for the international Communist movement,” the Communist Party of Austria said in its presentation.
