Naxalism is a brand name for Communist ideology of Marxist-Leninist variety, which burst out on the Indian scene as a radical romantic, revolutionary political creed in the Spring of 1967. Debunking Parliamentary Democracy and swearing by the tenet that the political power flows through the barrel of the gun, openly swearing allegiance to Chairman Mao, a well thought out political strategy had a premature birth in West Bengal in the ideal conditions of chaos that prevailed after the fall of the unpopular Congress Ministry. Euphoric at their unexpected success, the United Front, in its policy statement of March 1, 1967, proclaimed support to all downtrodden people in their legitimate struggles to ameliorate their conditions. Police were asked not to interfere in class actions.
Marxist Leninists chose the Siliguri area for launching their revolution, not by accident. The area was close to Nepal, Bangladesh, Sikkim and Tibet was less than 100 miles away. Populated by over 1.25 lakh triba ...more

Basically- the step that revolution starts in the villages and spreads to the cities ,spearheaded by peasents. This is different from your typical M/L "Marxist Leninist" outlook which states that revolutions should start in the cities, spearheaded by the urban proletariat and the intelligensia- and then spread to the countryside.

In a "typical" Marxist / Leninist outlook- the "Chief proponents" of a revolution would be the Urban working class & the educated class- the intelligensia. In a more Naxal outlook- the "Chief Proponents" of a revolution would be the agrarian peasentry. Urban proletariats & the intelligensia in Naxalism (versus M/L ism) take on very secondary places in the whole "Socialist Revolution"- which is the basic ideology of the Naxalite movement.

Their rationale is that India is a majority non agrarian nation.
