So, central government has banned CPI maoist, the main outfit of maoist and naxalite activities in India. It is a much awaited action and finally government woke up when these so called revolutionaries had taken over a large part of Lalgarh. Anyways better late than never. But it should not be stopped here. Government should start an all out campaign and mind you military/para-military campaign, not a police one to flush out all the naxalites from whole country, so that a right environment of development can be created in naxal affected areas. It is the best time to do so in last 60 years and looks like universe has conspired to give us that opportunity. Government must seize it with open hands and ruthless force. Here are the reasons why it is the best time to start an all-out flush out campaign against maoist and naxalites.
1. After the heavy defeat in LokSabha elections main stream communist parties are busy taking care of their in-fighting and putting an all out effort to keep alive in politics in this ever increasing anti-communist world. So they can’t create hoop-hulla or can’t stall the process in parliament either. So no help from inside India.
2 Naxalites in India had two main sources of arms and bombs etc. One of them completely out of picture now. Yes, I am talking about Prabhakaran and his tigers. So no help from south.
3 Second main source of arms is ISI and pakistani militants who provide support across the borders of Bangladesh. They are relatively concentrating their efforts on afghan border right now. Besides pakistan government is in no position to sponsor naxals as they have problems of survival in front of them. So not much help from east & west either.
4 Main source for man power came from Nepali maoists. But they have taken route of politics now and busy establishing themselves as reliable politicians. They have dismantled their armed wing also. So no help from north.
5 China is busy capturing world in aftermath of recent recession and devoting all its energy in economy. So not to expect anything big from big brother.
In this way maoists and naxalites are on their own right now. And we have most stable government in last 20 years. Public support has already been there. So what else can fall in line to get a better opportunity.
But to make a foot-note, government should also try to open a side channel to bring them in main stream politics and take care of problems of poor in those parts of our country. Hope all will be best for this great country of ours.
