Female cadres of Maoist Communist Party vow to take on wrong doers against women
Today, women have not only joined the Maoist Communist Party of Manipur but due respect is given to them by forming wings reserved for women only to raise their status, added the press release.

A Call To the People of India! Shatter the shackles of imperialism and feudalism, Destroy this rotten system!
Build your future and that of the country with your own hands!
Warmest greetings to you from the Communist Party of India (Maoist) on the occasion of its 10th founding anniversary.
Ten years ago, we came before you to announce a joyous event – the merger of two revolutionary streams. A single Maoist party, the Communist Party of India (Maoist) was formed on the 21st of September, 2004, to shoulder the tasks of revolution. Today we place before you an account of these momentous years. It has been a decade of heroic struggle and sacrifices by the best daughters and sons of this land. Nearly two thousand and five hundred of them, from Dandakaranya (Chattisgarh), Bihar, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telengana, Maharashtra, Odisha, Paschim Banga, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Asom, laid down their precious lives. They include hundreds of great leaders of the revolution, from the topmost level of our party to its basic levels. Scores of valiant fighters of the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army shed their blood in battle with the oppressor’s mercenaries. Many among the masses too made the highest sacrifice.

[A few years back, some Indian government people released a statement that "the Maoists" (which the government calls ay radical movement in tribal areas) have a lot of child soldiers. To some extent, the government in saying this is reacting to and slandering the youthfulness of rebellion. Because young people in India's tribal areas become politically active and join political movements against the conditions they have been born and grown up in, the ranks of rebellious and revolutionary movements are filled with young people. But the fact that the police force young people to leave school and work for the police, reveals what the police really think of children, as they have created an unschooled "child police" force which, one can only predict, will backfire in many ways. -- Frontlines ed.]
For India’s child police, work trumps school Children of officers killed on duty are given jobs to provide for families, but their studies take a backseat.

“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act”–George Orwell
It is precisely for this ‘crime’ of speaking the truth in the face of the lies and deceit that seek to hide the untold injustice and oppression perpetuated by the Indian state, that Dr. GN Saibaba has been arrested. Dr. GN Saibaba, a faculty member in DU and a widely known political activist, was clandestinely abducted on 9th May by plain-clothed policemen of the Maharashtra police just steps away from his residence as he was on his way back from examination duty. Saibaba, who suffers from 90% disability and is wheelchair bound, was blindfolded and pushed into a vehicle that swiftly took him to the airport from whence he was flown to Nagpur. The surreptitious manner in which a public figure like him was literally abducted by the police itself testifies that they were wary of the fact that they do not have any substantive evidence to back their hoax of “nabbing” him for alleged “Maoist links”. It has been obvious for quite a while now that the Indian state has been desperate to brand him and frame him under certain cooked up charges. The sole purpose being, to gag a voice of dissent that dares to speak the truth despite repeated threats and intimidations.
A large number of activists, intellectuals, students and teachers turned up in front of Maharasthra Bhawan on 10th May to protest against the dastardly abduction and arrest of Dr. GN Saibaba
