Naxals, India's enemy within: Kanchan Gupta

The ineffective UPA government is busy handling the TN government with
a soft glove of a letter from the substitute PM. And unconcerned at
the humiliation being heaped on the hindu with the way the Kanchi
Acharya case is being played out in the legal system which is an ass.
Don't ever stand at the rear feet of this animal, one will only get

The ineffective UPA government is not paying attention to the most
serious national security problem of naxals, while meek attempts are
made to dislodge the UP government led by Samajwadi Party.

The ineffective UPA government has not responded to HE President Abdul
Kalam's sincere plea for India Vision 2020 (or, 5131 Kaliyugabda,
thanks Govind).

The ineffective UPA government has done nothing about the promise made
in the Common Minimum Programme to start work on the National Water
Grid (Peninsular riverlink component).

The ineffective UPA government is busy offering tea and dinner parties
to CPM reps. in creating a psec make-believe.

Who cares for the harijan sitting under the shade of the tree in the
village? The satraps are merry with their media glare with chamcha-s
providing them with photo-ops and talk shows on TV channels.

The nation is at risk with these jokers calling themselves elected
representatives and the executive wing of the polity.

BJP and friends of hindu should boycott all public postures of this
government and declare a non-cooperation movement, starting with a
refusal to participate in Parliamentary proceedings which produce no
worthwhile debate, and only sycophancy and more sycophancy. Lok Sabha
Speaker Somnath Chatterjee is not serious when he says that he will

The attack on a provincial armed constabulary convoy by Naxalites in
Chandauli district of eastern Uttar Pradesh on November 20 has not
only come as a grim reminder that left-wing extremism is alive and
kicking in rural India, but also as a kick in the face of lotus-eaters
who now formulate policy in the ministry of home affairs.

Last Saturday's incident has demonstrated, though not for the first
time, that Naxalites -- variously referred to as Maoists and
Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries -- are loathe to scale back their
criminal activities, despite the peace overtures by the UPA government
in New Delhi and its affiliate Congress government in Andhra Pradesh,
which is one of the affected states. read more

Shamless Maoists justified killings of 17 policemen

Thursday November 25 2004 00:00 IST


NEW DELHI: Maoists justified killings of 17 policemen and injuring several others in an ambush in Chandauli near Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh on November 20 saying that it was a reaction to the ''police offensive''.

''What for had the police launched the combing operation in the area,'' CPI (Maoist) leader Vara Vara Rao said adding that ''their clear motive was killing Naxalites.''

The Naxalites had resorted to the action only in ''self-defence'', said Rao at a press conference here on Wednesday.

So far, no Naxalite outfit has claimed the responsibility for the attack.

The Naxalites, numbering about 150, had ambushed a truck carrying an unspecified number of policemen and Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) jawans on combing duty. A land mine laid at culvert blew up the vehicle as it passed over it.

Initial reports said that the dead included 13 PAC jawans and four police constables.
