Resist Oplan Samadhan—CPI-Maoist
The Communist Party of India (CPI)-Maoist called on the Indian people to resist the Operation Samadhan (“solution” in Indian), the reactionary Indian state’s latest suppression campaign. Contrary to its declared objectives, the operation will not bring in “solutions” such as irrigation, education, health and other services to Indian communities. Instead, Operation Samadhan will displace the people from lands targeted by foreign companies for megadams. The operation covers Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Odisha, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand which are all adivasi or minority areas.
The reactionary state is considering the CPI-Maoist as an “internal threat” as a pretext to dump security forces and militarize the said areas. The CPI-Maoist, however, stated that it is not the communists who are threats to the community but the foreign companies and the state security forces that they use.
In fact, there have been communities which have been displaced in the name of “industrialization” and “development.” The state accused residents of being members of the CPI-Maoist and were charged with sedition and other trumped-up charges. Thus, they have been forced to abandon their communities to escape police and military abuses. This includes massacres, killings, rape, beatings and other abuses.
