Yes they do, almost from the entire Indian political spectrum. Noticeably, when the Naxalite movement first started in the late sixties in West Bengal, it was the CPI-M that cracked down hardest on the Maoist rebels, with ample support from the Congress at the Centre. At village levels, the Naxalites' terror tactics have spawned local armies to provide protection to the landlords and others. The most infamous of these is the Ranvir Sena in Bihar and Jharkhand, formed by Bhumihar caste landlords, which kill tribals, Dalits and landless labourers either in retaliation or to enforce their domination

Yes. It is the major threat to our internal security because they are taking training and weapons and ammunition from the external terrorist outfits. So, we have to fight for the internal security and set it right, then only we can be able to fight with the outside terrorist agencies.

Yes, it is a major threat. It has to be tackled by the Government seriously. They have to study the root causes, identify the poverty stricken segment youth who are being exploited and offer them assistance and wean them away from the movement. Hardcore elements have to be isolated and reasonable people brought to the main stream. The few corrupt politicians and police are the main obstacles in naxalism spreading.

Nop.

1. It's not foreign funded.
2. No seirous foreign fund has it.
3. They're not regional separatist asking for "Red Elam" like LTTE or "Redistan" like J&K Separatist or "Bodoland" etc. They r not asking for any terrtiorial partition o' India??

That means they're there because ....well, I'll stick to facts, so don't shoot me, but ask N. Ram of THE HINDU, India's most respected news paper. In Hindu Artlcle, inflation & price rise, over recent 10+ yrs has bought down basic staple consumption from a already meager 27kg in 1960s to a abyssmal 11kg now in same time frame. That's wartime refugee level.

I cannot give a "clear" cut comment on it- I dont' want to throw unfounded accusations @ Indian Govt, but the Indian govt has put a extra ordinary media gag on ALL Naxal area reportage. Even more so than J&K / NE. In J&K if u reported "terrotist" view exclusively, you get booted out & escorted out of state by an Army Jeep & your media company gets its license suspended from repo ...more
