CPI (Maoist) condemns aerial bombing of Indian indigenous communities
The Communist Party of India (Maoist) condemned the Indian government’s armed forces for the brutal bombing of not less than nine communities in parts of South Bastar on the borders of Chhattisgarh-Telangana on the morning of January 11. The group said the relentless bombing of communities started at 11 a.m to sow fear and terror among indigenous peoples.
“It is clear how desperate the fascist Bharatiya Janata Party is to eliminate the Maoist forces,” said Comrade Abhay, spokesperson of the CPI (Maoist). He said that the fascists were forced to employ aerial assets because they fear entering the forests through land where they are likely to be met with the indigenous people’s armed resistance. “Because the people of those regions are highly politicized and radical, the Central Reserve Police Force and other forces are afraid to enter through land,” Abhay added.
These attacks aim to push back and disunite the indigenous peoples to sell all the region’s natural resources to imperialists and bourgeois compradors.
Amid enemy attacks, forces under the People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army of the CPI (Maoist) were able to inflict damage against attacking forces. They damaged an enemy helicopter and wounded six fascist soldiers.
Abhay said further that they are expecting India’s government to intensify its use of aerial strikes and aerial bombing to come after the CPI (Maoist) leadership. However, he said, “the enemy should know that their bombs and drones cannot match the spirit of sacrifice of every single guerrilla, it cannot crush the Indian revolution.”
