CPI(M) Organises Seminar
Dusmanta Kumar Das
FOR a revolution, the task of prime importance is to identify who is your friend and who is your foe. But in our country neither the erstwhile Naxalite movement nor the present day Maoist movement has ever taken the pain of analysing the Indian situation and draw the necessary conclusions. The Maoists who swear by the name of Mao Zedong, a great revolutionary, have completely forgotten Mao’s thoughts and guidance whose main theme was: “Never forget the class struggle.”
This was the opinion expressed by Ajijul Haq, a Naxalite leader of yesteryears and a columnist today. Participating in a seminar on “Expose the Real Face of Maoists” at
Making a scathing attack on imperialist media, Ajijul Haq said every attempt is now being made to revive the reactionary ideologies. In imperialist media, even the fascist Hitler is being projected as a hero while Lenin and Mao are being projected as demons. However, Maoists have come to play in the hands of same imperialist forces, and have become the pawns in the imperialist game of attacking the Left parties of our country. As the gist, he said, “Maoists are left in words but right in deeds.” But while criticising the wrong path of Maoists, he said that no gun can finish any ideology and hence the Maoists need to be fought ideologically. Regarding the CPI(M), he said it has valiantly fought against left adventurism since the days of naxalism and is still ideologically fighting against the Maoists and their bankrupt policy.
Initiating the seminar, the CPI(M)’s Orissa state committee secretary Janardan Pati said the Maoist deviation is not new for the Indian communist movement, nor for the world, as the Communist Parties in various countries have suffered such ultra-left deviations. He said that the CPI (Moist) which was formed by the merger of the CPI(ML) (People’s War Group) and the MCCI (the effort started in 1981 and completed in 2004) have many wrong formulations which are far away from the Indian reality. Their programmatic understanding is that
Because of their wrong formulation and understanding, the Maoists are attacking the CPI(M) and other Left forces who are fighting against the wrong policy of the government which is responsible for all the misery of the people. In the process, they thus help the imperialists only. It is thus that they are now in the anti-Left bandwagon of a “Mahajot” in West Bengal, led by the Trinamul Congress, which is nothing but an anti-communist platform created by imperialist camp led by the
