IMPHAL, December 3: Various communist parties of the world, namely Association for Proletarian Solidarity, Italy, Maoist Communist Party of France (MCF), Maoist Communist Party of Manipur (MCP), Partito Comunista Maoista (PCM), Party of the Committees to Support Resistance for Communism (CARC), Revolutionary Communist Party, Canada (PCR-RCP Canada), Struggling Workers Union, Italy (SLL) have today made a joint statement for strengthening communist revolutionary movement in the world.
A statement issued by Maoist Communist Party Manipur mentioned that the Communist parties of the world strongly condemned the brutal killing of Koteshwar Rao alias Kishenji at Jangalmahal region of West Bengal, India.
Communist Party of India (Maoist) has played an important role in world’s proletarian revolution and so all genuine communists will never forget India. The murder of Koteshwar Rao Kishenji is a terrible pain, not only for the Indian revolution, but also for the World Proletarian Revolution, it stated.
The communists believed that the demise of Kishenji will make a new approach to unite all the oppressed people of the world. In a famous article” serve the people”, Mao has mentioned: “Though death befalls all men alike, it may be weightier than Mount Tai or lighter than a feather. To die for the people is weightier than Mount Tai, but to work for the fascists and die for the exploiter is lighter than a feather”, the statement mentioned.
The Indian reactionary has murdered Kishenji but not his ideology. They can’t kill Marxism-Leninism-Maoism. The movement will continue, the revolution will continue. The Indian People`s War is facing counter-insurgency pushed by the Indian counter-revolution and supported by the Imperialist countries. Manipur and its neighboring sisters states have been brutalized by imposing the Armed Forces Special Powers Act, 1958 in which a non-commissioned officer is empowered to kill anyone in suspicion and no state body has the right to institute a commission without the permission of Indian Home Minister. The act only imposed in North Eastern states where Indian forcibly annexed into their union and well known Jammu and Kashmir discriminately. Now India has started war against its own people in the name of “Operation Green Hunt” at Maoist affected area. The degree of the brutality in northeastern states is too much if anyone compares with any mainland Indian state. The Indian Army racially oppresses the Mongolians race of North East states and Kashmir for being as Islamist people, the statement added.
