Communists Snatching Democracy From India

The merger of the PW and the MCCI to form the CPI(Maoist) is a significant development and could very well change the course of revolutionary movements, not only in India, but also across the South Asian countries. Besides establishing links with the Nepalese Maoists, the CPI (Maoist) has been able to build a network with similar Communist revolutionary organisations in Bangladesh, Bhutan and Sri Lanka under the banner of the Co-ordination Committee of Maoists Parties and Organisations of South Asia (CCOMPOSA). Purba Bangla Communist Party, operating mostly in the western districts of Bangladesh bordering India, is a member of CCOMPOSA. All these South Asian Maoist parties are members of the largest international organisation called the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement (RIM). RIM and CCOMPOSA are advising Nepalese Maoists against negotiations with the government of King Gyanendra as they believe that success of the Nepali Maoists is a prerequisite to the success of the “people’s war’’ in the entire region. The CPI (Maoist) and the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) have planned to create a liberated Compact Revolutionary Zone (CRZ) extending from Nepal and stretching across six states from central India to somewhere on the northern fringes of Karnataka.
