The 22nd of April will mark the 41st anniversary of the foundation of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) under the leadership of comrade Charu Mazumdar. This year’s commemoration of this historic occasion has an added importance. It will be taking place in the context of the all-out counter-revolutionary war launched by the Indian state under the code name Operation Greenhunt and the growing countrywide mobilisation against it. Operation Greenhunt is primarily directed against the People’s War being waged in the Central-East regions of India under the leadership of the Communist Party of India (Maoist). This war is a continuation of the great Naxalbari armed peasant rebellion that broke the shackles of revisionism in the Indian communist movement.
The present situation has two important characteristics – the all-out drive of the enemy and the unprecedented mobilisation of the people. This poses the task of earnestly promoting the unification of all Maoist forces into an even more powerful vanguard. This is not merely a matter of quantitative increase. Primarily, it raises the task of synthesising the rich and diverse experiences of Maoist practices over the years in this continent-like country. The need to defeat Operation Greenhunt by spreading the flames of People’s War throughout the country gives added importance to this synthesis.
The successful completion of the Indian revolution is of great importance for the world revolution. In these days, where the global crisis of the imperialist system is pushing people throughout the world into untold misery, let us redouble our efforts to press forward.
Build the Party all Across the Country!
Spread the Flames of People’s War!
Defeat the Counter-revolutionary Operation GreenHunt!
