By Surya Pratap Singh

Ranchi (Jharkhand), Dec.19: Formally accepting their support and role in facilitating the recent escape of 303 inmates at the Dantewada Jail, the Communist Party of India (Maoists) has hailed the incident as a huge moral victory for all revolutionaries.

Appreciating the daring act at the Dantewada Jail, the Bihar-Jharkhand-North Chattisgarh Special Area Committee and the Special Areas Military Commission, has hoped the incident would further inspire those activists who are lagging behind.

"Bihar-Jharkhand Uttari Chattisgarh Special Area Committee, welcomes you all back with a big salute for your courage on behalf of Special Area Military Commission under Regional Committee, Commission and zonal committees and commands and other associated groups. It is hoped and appealed to the people's gladiators, still lodged in jails, that they would take inspiration from your act of bravery as showcased recently by you," stated Rakesh, Secretary of the outfit, in a media release.

"By freeing yourself and other fellows from the confines of jails without any outside help (except moral support), you have created a history. It has taken our Red Flag's popularity to another level of fame and respect. You now stand as ideals amongst all revolutionaries and a big source of energy for others," Rakesh added.

On Sunday (December 16), several Naxalites had attacked a jail in Dantewada and freed 303 inmates of which 40 were Maoist leaders. The also took away over a dozen guns and huge cache of ammunitions.

There were 377 inmates in the jail at the time of the break-in.

The Communist Party of India (Maoist) is conducting 'People's War', a strategical line developed by Mao Zedong during the phase of guerrilla warfare of the Communist Party of China.

It has effective control over some regions of Jharkhand and Andhra Pradesh as well as presence in Bihar and the tribal-dominated areas in the borderlands of Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Orissa.

The CPI (Maoist) aims to consolidate its power in this area and establish a Compact Revolutionary Zone to advance the People's War in other parts of India.
