The strength of Indian Naxalites (Maoists) - PM Manmohan Singh’s massive failure

How powerful are those Maoists in India? The banned CPI (Maoists) have called for spreading the people's war to every corner of the country while celebrating the People's Guerrilla Army (PLA) week from Sunday.

The strength of these renegade outfit is spread across the country with special concentration in Chattisgarh, Bihar, West Bengal, MP, UP, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh. They have secret pact with international arms smugglers. They control pockets of India where the Indian cops are scared to enter the dens of these Mosist rebels.

Can they ever become as powerful as the Maoists in Nepal? The international think tanks believe they cannot unless something drastic happens in India. But they can be a total nuisance.

The power and strength of the Naxalites (Maoists) in India has quadrupled since PM Manmohan Singh came into power. Maoists Communist Center of India (MCCI) and Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) merged to form CPI (Maoists) on September 21, 2004, they converted the People's Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA) into People's Guerrilla Army (PLA) and vowed to step up their armed struggle.

It is a total failure of PM Manmohan Singh. He took control over the fight against these brutal Maoists but he failed miserably in containing their power base. The problems lie with DR. Singh’s and his party’s policies. India has neglected its countryside and farmers and opted for easy dollar and euros through Foreign Direct Investments and outsourcing money from abroad. The oligarchs control India. Common people are neglected. The suicide among the farmers has risen exponentially in the last several years. Neither BJP not Congress Party have taken the side of the common people. The mainstream communists and socialists are controlled by corrupt CPI(M) who have caused massacre in West Bengal killing innocent people in Nandigram and other places. The Congress party is in full coalition with the murderous CPI(M) seeking approval for India-US nuke agreement. Lots of money will be exchanged between India and US companies after the deal is signed. It is expected $100 billion will go to Westinghouse and General Electric as India buys nuclear reactors under the agreement. BJP also does not care. It is just waiting from the sideline when it can come to power, service the oligarchs and get their own commission.

This has allowed the ruthless Maoists spread easily across India. They are still powerless in true sense but theirs are doubling every year
