Who are nexalite and what are their basic demands
Unlike what is misconstrued, the NAxalites aren't demanding a separate country and neither are they Mao fanatics. THey in fact criticized the CHinese attack on India recently saying that the CHina attack made Communism very hostile to the Indian psyche, even if not all COmmunists r Chinese....
To put it VERY Technically, the NAxalites demand is that we have a budget which reads like:
GDP 4 percent, GINI .30 target.
At present we have:
under the leadership of charu mazumdar, in a small village , naxalbary, peasants hoisted the flag of revolution against feudal lords. charu mazumdar followed left wing adventurism. He went to the extent of saying china's chairman is our chairman. he advocated class enemy's annihilation and unless one's hand is drenched with the blood of a class enemy, one can not be called a communist.
with in one year the party was split and kanu sanyal started another party called CPI ML.
The CPM government in west Bengal ruthlessly suppressed the naxalbary movement and killed several innocent people in fake encounters.
at present Maoists are a force to reckon with in chattisgarh, andhra pradesh, jarkhand only.
