Long Live The Historic 25th May – Naxalbari Day

nb2014

 

“Naxalbari lives and will live. This is because it is based on invincible Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought. We know that as we move forward we shall face many obstacles, many difficulties, many acts of betrayal and there will be many setbacks. But Naxalbari will not die because the bright sunlight of Chairman Mao’s Thought has fallen on it like a blessing. When Naxalbari receives congratulations from the heroes in the rubber plantations of Malaya who have been engaged in struggle for 20 years, when congratulations are sent by Japanese comrades who have been fighting against the revisionist leadership of their own Party, when such congratulations come from the Australian revolutionaries, when the comrades of the armed forces of great China send their greetings, we feel the significance of that immortal call, “Workers of the World, Unite”, we have a feeling of oneness and our conviction becomes more strong and firm that we have our dear relations in all lands. Naxalbari has not died and it will never die.” Respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

 

“The struggle of Naxalbari is the struggle for seizure of state power and not for land seizure.” – Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

 

“Red Salute To the other name of Naxalbari – respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar” – Leader of heart respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee

 

They sing the hymns of elections to serve imperialism and to cause great agony to the people. We sing the song of Naxalbari to liberate the people. 

Comrades,

The Naxalbari is personally created by the successful implementer of Mao Tse-tung’s Thought, the highest form of Marxism-Leninism, on Indian soil – respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar. From there started the armed agrarian revolution of India, which is armed with the theory of people’s war of Chairman Mao Tse-tung – Vice Chairman Comrade Lin Piao. Therefore, the name of Naxalbari is inscribed in golden letters in the history of world communist movement.

The historic 25th May Naxalbari day is crimsoned with the blood of the heroic martyrs of Naxalbari – immortal martyrs Comrade Dhaneswari Devi, Comrade Fulmoti Devi, Comrade Khor Singh Mallik, Comrade Seemaswari Mallik, Comrade Nayenswari Mallik, Comrade Shurbala Barman, Comrade Sonamati Singh, Comrade Gaidrau Saimani, and two infants.

It is to be remembered that the sacrifice of these martyrs has not gone in vain. That is why Naxalbari has neither died, nor will it die ever. As it is blessed by Chairman Mao Tse-tung himself. The successor of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar – our leader of heart respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee said : “Red Salute to the other name of Naxalbari – respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar”. Therefore we are commemorating the historic Naxalbari day along with the revolutionaries of the world.

Overcoming the temporary setbacks the Comrades have aroused again, by destroying feudal rule in the countryside following the path of Naxalbari – Bihar’s Ghogi Bariyarpur – revolutionary committees, the alternative government of the peasants are been established. Mahadev Mukherjee Nagar is established in Kiranpur of Bihar.

Respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar was so accurate, he predicted: “An uprising is approaching, countrywide insurrection.”

So, Comrades let us unite and pledge in the name of all martyrs : We will take forward the struggle of overthrowing feudalism in the countryside and establishing peasants alternative government revolutionary committees and strengthen it by expanding it and installing it deep into the masses.

Leader of heart respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee has taught us that through the parliamentary path we can serve imperialism, through the path of martyrs we can do the revolution and serve the masses.

 

Therefore let us liberate India and the world by taking the path of Naxalbari and by kicking the parliamentary path. As respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar has taught us that the liberation of the world depends upon the liberation of India.

Red Salute to Yousuf Mollah

Chairman Mao Tse-tung “Tit for Tat” – Chairman Mao Tse-tung

“Repent not, for today is the day to flare up like fire” – Respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

 

The CPI (M-L) strongly condemns the murder of the peasant activist Yousuf Mollah in Nadia district of West Bengal by the reactionary fascist Trinamool Congress goons. The CPI (M-L) condemns the revisionist tactics of the pseudo “Naxal” groups misusing the struggle of the peasants under the banner of Naxalbari for electoral gains. Their core motive is to yield maximum electoral benefits and sink the revolutionary struggle of the peasants against feudalism in the blood of the heroic peasants.

The core of our class leadership, Comrade Manik‘s call : “Today, if you come to hit us, you will be killed” should be the guiding principle in the struggle against feudalism and its stooges the fascist reactionary powers. Our clarion call to the peasants of Nadia, Comrades, this is not the era of being attacked by the enemies, it is the era of counter attack. Under the great crimson banner of the politics of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar and the accurate political line of leader of heart respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee let us unite with utmost class hatred against the enemies and avenge the murder of Yousuf Mollah. Fight self, combat revisionism, and march ahead on the path of the armed agrarian revolution led by the vanguard party of the proletarian class of India, the CPI (M-L).

Our victory is invincible, as this is the great era of Chairman Mao Tse-tung, the era of the total collapse of imperialism and world wide victory of socialism.

Red Salute to Yousuf Mollah

Long Live the Revolution.

Fight Against The Concrete Manifestations of Revisionism

RESPECTED LEADER COMRADE CHARU MAZUMDAR

[Translated from the original text as appeared in the Bengali weekly DESHABRATI. September 4,1969. – Liberation September 1969]

NAXALBARI represents the first ever application of Mao Tse-tung Thought on the soil of India. It was in Naxalbari that the peasants, for the first time, launched their struggle for the seizure of power. For this reason, Naxalbari symbolises the path of liberation for the exploited masses of the Indian people, thus ushering in a new era in the political history of India. This new political era in India can be understood only by what Comrade Stalin said about the Chinese revolution, that is, in India today armed revolution has begun its battle with armed counter-revolution. Waging revolutionary war has, therefore, become the only and main tactic of the revolutionary masses.

A correct leadership is essential for waging this revolutionary war successfully. It is precisely for this reason that the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) has been established. Unless we understand this new situation in India, we can have no understanding of the significance and work of the revolutionary Party. That is why our  Party is the party of armed struggle, the party which will lead the Indian people’s democratic revolution to victory.

It is the duty of every member and every front of our Party to carry forward this revolutionary civil war. So, our Party’s work will always be directed towards carrying forward the revolutionary civil war.

The ways of doing things which were created and developed so far by the communist movement in India have become wholly and entirely useless in the present era. This is so because they are unable to serve the needs of the present era. The present revolutionary civil war
can be carried on only on the basis of the Thought of Chairman Mao Tsetung and only by creating a new style of work.

So, the Party members must first of all be able to grasp the  revolutionary politics, and must give prominence to this politics in all their work.

Secondly, every Party member must show initiative in whatever he does. He must adhere to our Party’s political line and general directive, study Mao Tse-tung Thought, take initiative and thus be able to create ingenious ways of doing things. The practice of waiting for instructions to come from the Party leadership will rob this Party of its mobility and the Party will be unable to fulfil its revolutionary task.

Thirdly, every Party member must be highly vigilant. In this era, when imperialism is heading towards total collapse, world imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism have turned India into their base and are hatching plots to destroy great China and the national liberation struggles of south-east Asia. The armed struggle in India led by the revolutionary Party will foil all their plots. For this reason, they aim, on the one hand, at destroying our Party through repression while, on the other, they aim at undermining its fighting capability by sending their agents into the Party, thus creating political disruption within it. Our old revisionist ideas and style of work are forces which help the imperialist scheme. That is why every Party member must be on the alert and vigilant against erroneous politics, and also against any attempt that may be made to undermine initiative in the name of carrying on “political struggle” within the Party. Our political consciousness and style of work are weapons with which we can prevent imperialist infiltration into our Party. So, every Party member must also be on the alert against such infiltration.

Fourthly, every Party member must be industrious. Influence of bourgeois ideology breeds laziness and passivity. Having revolutionary
consciousness means having unfailing zeal to do hard work and fulfil arduous tasks.

A great responsibility has fallen on our shoulders. We have to translate into reality the dream of making a revolution-the dream which has remained unfulfilled during the forty years of communist movement in India. We can fulfil this task only by mobilizing our entire strength and industriousness, by combining the two. We can achieve our goal and make an ‘impossible’ thing possible only by bringing into full play our strength and ability.

Our task is to carry out agrarian revolution and to establish bases of armed struggle in the countryside. Therefore, every Party member must share the thoughts and aspirations of the peasant masses and integrate themselves with them; be ready at all times to make all kinds of sacrifices and come forward tirelessly to serve the people.

The Communist Party members must set themselves up as exemplary models before the masses. Only in this way can they inspire the masses. Therefore, every Party member must fight against self-interest and individualism. Only thus can we introduce revolutionary discipline into
the Party without which no revolutionary war can be sustained.

Only a Party composed of such members, however small in the beginning, is able to organize peasants’ revolutionary struggle, to strengthen Party’s class basis by making the workers and the poor and landless peasants politically conscious, and to turn itself into a big Party
capable of leading the revolution to victory.

Our Party’s growth and development depend on how firmly we fight  revisionism both inside and, outside the Party. And not only that. The growth and development of the peasants’ armed struggle also depend on the fight against revisionism. Precisely for this reason it is said
that creating a high tide of struggle depends on how wIdely we can spread and propagate Mao Tse-tung Thought as well as on adopting the new style of work. It is only because we have been unable to master the correct applIcation of Mao Tse-tung Thought that we are not able to
extend the struggle to still wider areas. It has, therefore, become the urgent task today to fight against the clear and concrete manifestations of revisionism.

Some of the revisionist ideas that still persist inside our Party and against which we are struggling at present are given here.

First, economism. At present economism expresses itself in the line of thinking according to which the workers and the poor and landless, peasants will be unable to accept revolutionary politics unless they are led into open struggles on economic demands. This line of thinking
weakens all our work like propagating revolutionary politics,  propagating the politics of seizure of power, and building revolutionary base areas in the countryside. Such a line of thinking makes the Party members concentrate their attention and work on organizing struggles for economic demands, and politics loses its place of prominence.
Lastly, such a line of thinking makes one contemptuous of the workers and the peasant masses and rely on the intelligentsia. But Chairman Mao has taught us that the struggle for production and the class struggle along with scientific experiment constitute the sources of
knowledge. The intelligentsia have no access to these sources, namely, the struggle for production and the class struggle, while the workers and the peasant masses have both these sources of knowledge. Secondly, only the peasant masses led by the working class can win victory in the revolution, and Mao Tse-tung Thought is the revolutionary ideology of the working class. That is why it is precisely the workers and the poor and landless peasants who grasp the politics of the seizure of power and of building revolutionary bases in the countryside most thoroughly once these are explained to them. This is because it is they who suffer most from the exploitation and oppression of the existing social system, and the revolution serves them more than anybody else.

We do not say that we shall never wage struggles for economic demands. What we say is that political propaganda and building Party organizations are the foremost and main task before us.

Economism in the peasant movement expresses itself in the form of rejecting the necessity for waging guerrilla warfare, thus concentrating the attention of the peasants on the question of seizing land and crops. Such economist ideas place open struggle above everything else, discourage any thought of building secret organizations or maintaining secrecy, strengthen the tendency toward spontaneity and belittle the role and importance of conscious leadership.

Such economist ideas belittle the importance of setting up secret Party organizations among the revolutionary classes, thus preventing the members of these classes from entering into the Party. Such economist tendency increases our dependence on the petty bourgeois intelligentsia. The idea that peasant struggles cannot possibly be organized unless the members of the petty bourgeois intelligentsia are sent to the villages for this purpose still persists and is still firmly rooted in our Party. We feel ill at ease whenever some assignments are given to a Party unit consisting of poor and landless peasants with the result that we fail to develop their initiative.
There is nothing against the members of the petty bourgeois intelligentsia going to the villages. But they must go there for becoming good communists and good revolutionaries, and to learn from the poor and landless peasants. They must not go there to lead the poor and landless peasants, because only the poor and landless peasants themselves, and none else can be the leaders of their struggle. The task before the comrades who belong to the petty bourgeois intelligentsia and are inspired by the Thought of Mao Tse-tung which they have learned, is to educate the poor and landless peasants in the Thought of Mao Tsetung. Dependence on the petty bourgeois intelligentsia is the result of the influence of bourgeois ideology, and we must rid the Party of this.

The influence of bourgeois ideology is also evident from the fact that we rely more on weapons than on people. We must never forget the teachings of Chairman Mao and Comrade Lin Piao in this respect. Chairman Mao, has pointed out: “Weapons are an important factor
in war, but not the decisive factor; it is people, not things, that are decisive.” The oppressed and persecuted peasants launch their struggle against the ruling classes with bare hands or with whatever they have, but as needs arise with the development of the struggle and dictated by the compulsions of advancing the revolution, they begin snatching and seizing arms from the ruling classes. This is how people’s armed forces develop. It is impossible to wage a revolutionary war by bringing arms from outside. This is so because, as Chairman Mao has taught us in waging a revolutionary war we must rely on the masses. “The revolutionary war is a war of the masses; it can be waged only by mobilizing the masses and relying on them.”
Our experience also shows that we cannot wage guerrilla warfare simply by acquiring sophisticated weapons; we must be able to bring up men armed with Mao Tse-tung Thought to wield those weapons. Unless we are  able to bring up such men the weapons will be of no use. And such men are brought up only through revolutionary class struggle, only through annihilating the class enemies. The guerrilla unit that has not done this can achieve little even with guns.

Another manifestation of bourgeois ideology is to magnify the importance of actions while giving no importance at all to political propaganda. This is what Chairman Mao has called ‘militarism’. The work of political propaganda must be raised to a newer and higher level at every stage of guerrilla warfare. Only when the masses begin to grasp Mao Tse-tung Thought their level of political conciousness will rise and only then will they be able to conquer death. Precisely for this reason it is said that once Mao Tse-tung Thought is combined with the force of arms, an invincible power is brought into being which can match and defeat any other power, however strong. The Party members must, therefore, constantly try to develop political propaganda.

But we can feel the urge for doing this only when we begin to  understand what the poor and landless peasants are thinking, and integrate ourselves with them through the propagation of the mass line.

Party leadership at all levels must shoulder the responsibility of and take good care in developing the mass line and educating the Party members in the propagation of the mass line.

Comrades, U.S. imperialism and Soviet social-imperialism are today hatching plots for launching a war of aggression against the great socialist China, and Soviet social-imperialism has been repeatedly carrying on armed provocations against China along the stretches of the Sino-Soviet border. We must remember Chairman Mao’s teaching:”With regard to the question of world war, there are but two possibilities: One is that the war will give rise to revolution and the other is that revolution will prevent the war.” The possibility of a war is very real at present. The responsihility of the communist revolutionaries in India has today increased manifold. We must be able to prevent this war with revolution. If, however, the imperialists succeed in launching a war of aggression inspite of us, then a large share of the responsibility of burning these warmongers into ashes will have to be shouldered by us, that is, the revolutionaries of India – a vast country of 500 million people. Hence, we must fear neither hardship nor death; we must shatter all the trammels of revisionist ideas that bind us today, and march forward. along a new path, and master the new style of work and mobilize all our forces to spread the flames of the revolutionary war to every State of India. This revolutionary war will deal a crushing blow at the unity of the imperialists, revisionists and reactionaries and smash it and the weakness of the enemy in its turn will bring about a new revolutionary hightide. The revolutionary struggle in India will bring a new inspiration, a new impetus to the revolutionary struggle in every other country of the world.

The great Ninth Congress of the great, glorious and correct Communist Party of China has given out the clarion call: a new era of world revolution has begun ; the revolutionary struggle the world over will destroy world imperialism and Soviet revisionism.
A world without exploitation-the dream that the world’s people have dreamed for ages-will be born. We are the architects of that brilliant new future. Today, we are fortunate in having been entrusted with the most sacred, the noblest of Lasks in the world. Let every comrade plunge into this work with all his strength and make the best use of it.

Long live Chairman Mao! A long, long life to him!

Long Live The Heroic Peasants of Naxalbari!

Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

[Translated from the Bengali original, which first appeared in the Autumn 1967 issue of Deshabrati, it was published in Liberation. Vol. V, No. 1 (July 1971-January 1972)].

The social system that exists in India is semi-feudal and semi-colonial. So the democratic revolution in this country means agrarian revolution. All the problems of India are related to this one task. On this question of agrarian revolution there has been difference of opinion in Marxist circles from the beginning of this century and among Marxists the struggle between the two policies-the one revolutionary and the other counter-revolutionary-continues. The Mensheviks side-tracked the question of State power and searched for a solution in municipalization. Lenin declared a crusade against it and said that it was not possible to solve the problem by side-tracking the question of State power. He showed that however progressive the legislation framed by one might be, the present State structure could not implement it. The condition of the peasant will remain the same. That was why he said that only the democratic State of workers and peasants, led by the working class, could solve this problem. Only the other day even the Soviet Party writer, Yudin, while criticizing Nehru’s Basic Approach, said that Nehru had not till then been able to solve the peasant problem. He challenged Nehru to show, in practice, how this problem could be solved in a peaceful way and added that Nehru would fail to do so. History has proved that, far from solving this problem, Nehru was not able even to bring about an iota of change.

After the twentieth congress of the Soviet party, the door to revisionism was opened wide and, as a result, the Soviet State has been transformed from a Socialist State into a capitalist State. By making the theory of peaceful transition to socialism-adopted at that twentieth congress-their basic guiding principle, the revisionists of our country are shouting loudly that the peasants’ struggle for land is a struggle for realization of economic demands and that it is adventurism to talk of the State machinery. What strange similarity between the words of Dange and Basavapunnia!

What strange cooperation between Biswanath Mukherji and Harekrishna Konar! This is not accidental since its source is one and that is the Menshevik counter-revolutionary ideology. That is why the cunning rulers of the Soviet State have repeatedly declared that it is only by using fertilizers, improved seeds and agricultural implements that India’s food problem can be solved. It is in this manner that they are coming forward to save India’s reactionary ruling clique; they are concealing from the masses the basic and effective way of solving India’s food, unemployment, poverty and other problems. This is because the Soviet State is today collaborating with British-American imperialists and has been turned into a State which exploits the masses of India. With the help of the native bourgeoisie the Soviet Union is also trying to invest capital in our country. In the sphere of trade and commerce with our country it has come to enjoy special facilities. That is why the arguments of the reactionary ruling clique are pouring out from the mouths of its spokesmen in a continuous flow and at an uninterrupted speed. That is why, as a collaborator of Britain and the U. S. A., the Soviet State also is our enemy and it is by taking shelter under their wings that the reactionary Government of India weighs like a corpse upon the shoulders of the masses. But even then Naxalbari has been created and hundreds of Naxalbaris are smouldering. This is because on the soil of India the revolutionary peasantry is heir to the heroic revolutionary peasants of great Telengana. The then Party leadership betrayed the heroic peasant struggle of Telengana and it did so by using the name of great Stalin. Many of those who are occupying the positions of Party leaders today were a party to the act of betrayal on that day! On bent knees, we will have to take lessons from those heroes of Telengana, not only to have strength to carry the red banner of revolt but also to have faith in the international revolutionary authority. What boundless respect they had for the international leadership-the name of Stalin made them place their lives fearlessly at the disposal of the reactionary government of India. In all ages and in all climes this revolutionary loyalty is necessary for organizing revolutions. We must learn from the experience of the heroes of Telengana: we must take the mask off the face of those who oppose Marxism-Leninism by using the name of Stalin. We will have to snatch from their hands the Red Flag dyed with the blood of hundreds of workers and peasants. The traitors have, by touching that Flag with their hands, stained it.

Naxalbari lives and will live. This is because it is based on invincible Marxism-Leninism-Mao Tsetung Thought. We know that as we move forward we shall face many obstacles, many difficulties, many acts of betrayal and there will be many setbacks. But Naxalbari will not die because the bright sunlight of Chairman Mao’s Thought has fallen on it like a blessing. When Naxalbari receives congratulations from the heroes in the rubber plantations of Malaya who have been engaged in struggle for 20 years, when congratulations are sent by Japanese comrades who have been fighting against the revisionist leadership of their own Party, when such congratulations come from the Australian revolutionaries, when the comrades of the armed forces of great China send their greetings, we feel the significance of that immortal call, “Workers of the World, Unite”, we have a feeling of oneness and our conviction becomes more strong and firm that we have our dear relations in all lands. Naxalbari has not died and it will never die.

One Year of Naxalbari Struggle

Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

[This article by Comrade Charu Mazumdar appeared in the Bengali weekly Deshabrati of May 23, 1968. It was published in Liberation, Vol. I, No. 8 (June 1968).]

Full one year has passed since the peasant struggle in Naxalbari began. This struggle is different from all other peasant struggles. Where is the difference? Peasants have always struggled against various injustices and oppressions. This is the first time that the peasants have struggled not for their partial demands but for the seizure of state power. If the Naxalbari peasant struggle has any lesson for us, it is this: militant struggles must be carried on not for land, crops etc., but for the seizure of state power. It is precisely this that gives the Naxalbari struggle its uniqueness. Peasants in different areas must prepare themselves in a manner so as to be able to render ineffective the state apparatus in their respective areas. It is in Naxalbari that this path has been adopted for the first time in the history of peasant struggles in India. In other words, the revolutionary era has been ushered in, and this is the first year of that era. It is for this reason that the revolutionaries of all countries are heartily welcoming the Naxalbari struggle.

India has been turned into a base of imperialism and revisionism, and is acting today as a base of reactionary forces against the people struggling for liberation. That is why the Naxalbari struggle is not merely a national struggle; it is also an international struggle. This struggle is difficult, and the path we have chosen is in no way easy or smooth. The path of revolution is difficult, not smooth or easy, and difficulties, dangers and even retreats will be there. But the peasants who are fired with the spirit of the new internationalism have defied all this and refused to submit. They continue to persist in their path of struggle.

Our experience during the last one year shows that the message of this struggle in a small area has spread to every corner of India. Each one of the existing political parties has opposed the Naxalbari struggle, yet the people are thinking in terms of this struggle and are coming forward to take the path charted by this struggle. The heroic leaders of the Naxalbari struggle are still living and the reactionary government, in spite of all their attempts, has not been able to destroy them. This shows how true are the words of Chairman Mao: “All reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying but in reality are not so powerful.”

The Chairman has said, “the complete collapse of colonialism, imperialism and all systems of exploitation, and the complete emancipation of all the oppressed peoples and nations of the world are not far off.”

Let us march forward to usher in that brilliant sunshine of liberation!

Srikakulam — Will It Be The Yenan of India? Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar

[Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumdar visited Andhra after the February 1969 meeting of the AICCCR. On his return to Calcutta, he wrote this article, which, translated from the Bengali original, appeared in Liberation, Vol. II, No. 5 (March 1969).]

Not even full two years have passed since the Naxalbari struggle started; yet, within this period, its sparks have spread to different States of India. And in Srikakulam in Andhra, the fire they have started is fast developing into a forest-fire.

Here, in the midst of a jungle surrounded by hills, I am sitting in a room on a hill-top and before me are seated about a score of young men. They are not well-known or renowned men, nor men who enjoy an all-lndia fame. But they are men who are young, men who dream. They dream of liberating the tens of crores of peasants who have been exploited and oppressed through the ages, they dream of liberating them from the yoke of exploitation, from the murky depths of ignorance, from grinding poverty, from hunger. They believe in making revolution. They are firmly convinced that only an armed peasantry can make the revolution victorious. They have come from various districts of Andhra — from Srikakulam, from Nalgonda, Warangal and Adilabad districts in Telengana, and from the districts in Rayalaseema, and they represent the majority of the districts of Andhra. They dream dreams, but they are no idle day-dreamers. All of them have left their hearth and home and live and work among the peasants and observe secrecy. It is they who have built up the Srikakulam struggle — the struggle that has filled the hearts of the revolutionaries of India with joy and confidence. The events of Srikakulam have made the conviction firmer than ever that India will create her own Yenan in no distant future. It is they who have built up the peasant struggle in the Koraput district in Orissa. The brutal repression carried on by the frightened reactionary government failed to suppress the struggle. Nor could they touch the leaders of the struggle. And it is they who constitute the Andhra State Co-ordination Committee of Communist Revolutionaries.

A report prepared by the Srikakulam District Committee was placed at the meeting. It is not for me to judge whether there are errors and shortcomings in the report. The comrades of Srikakulam have published that report and placed their experiences before the Communist revolutionaries of the whole country. They are men who have no interest other than that of the revolution. That is why they do not fear criticism; on the contrary, they have invited criticism. In this report they have recorded their valuable experiences of the Srikakulam struggle and have tried to draw conclusions from them. In the report they have forcefully asserted that there can be no compromise with opportunism. Such compromises with opportunism do not add to the strength of the revolutionaries but weaken them. A firm class-unity can be built only through struggle against Right and ‘Left’ opportunism.

They have analysed the nature of opportunism in Andhra, marked out those who represent this opportunism and have taken upon themselves the responsibility of carrying on struggle against them.

At this meeting they have resolved to build up a revolutionary Party in the whole of Andhra — a Party that bases itself on the thought of Chairman Mao Tse-tung. They have declared that everything that is happening in Srikakulam today is based solely and entirely on the thought of Chairman Mao. That explains why Srikakulam has become the sole criterion for the people of Andhra to judge who is a revolutionary and who is not. And Srikakulam serves today as this yardstick not merely for the people of Andhra but for the people of the whole of India.

As I said before, these comrades are no idle day-dreamers. So, they are not thinking of winning victory the easy way. They realize that attacks are sure to come and that they may even have to suffer serious set-backs. They are quite aware of that danger and are preparing to face such eventualities.

They are convinced that to carry on revolutionary struggle, they must have a revolutionary Party. That is why they have put the task of building such a Party before everything else. At the same time they also realize that a task of such a revolutionary Party will be to imbue the Party members and the people with the spirit of sacrifice. Chairman Mao teaches us: “Wherever there is struggle there is sacrifice, and death is a common occurrence.” So, in order to win victory in the revolution, the revolutionary cadres must be able to make sacrifices. They must sacrifice their property and belongings, sacrifice comforts, sacrifice old habits and aspirations after fame, rid themselves of the fear of death and give up ideas of seeking the easy path. Only in this way shall we be able to train and prepare the revolutionaries to conduct a hard, difficult and protracted struggle. Only in this way can we inspire the people to make great sacrifices, who then, with tremendous blows, will smash all the power and might of imperialism, revisionism and the Indian reactionaries and thus win victory for the revolution.

It is after a long time that I have attended a meeting like this of Communist revolutionaries where they have taken the vow to sell out their properties and donate the entire sum thus obtained to the Party fund. In this meeting alone promises were made to raise about a lakh of rupees in this way. The slogan: “Let us build Srikakulams in the different areas to support the Srikakulam struggle!” instantly changed the atmosphere of the meeting and the very air in the room seemed to have been electrified All the comrades present resolutely declared that they would build Srikakulams in Telengana, in the districts of the Rayalaseema region, in the whole of Andhra. At that moment, throbbing as it was with the vigorous, bright spirit of revolutionary ardour, one thought repeatedly haunted me — the thought of the heroic revolutionaries of Telengana who had laid down their lives fighting. I was thinking that the sacrifice of those glorious fighters has not been in vain; for India’s Yenan will be created here. The meeting ended in the midst of great enthusiasm.

As the time came for me to leave, I suddenly felt sad. Who knows whether I shall again meet these comrades. They are revolutionary comrades who are dedicated and not afraid to make even the supreme sacrifice. They are going back from this meeting to plunge into the struggle again, and nobody knows who would survive. But one thing I know — the people of India will never forget them.

Suddenly the India that is enveloped in darkness vanished, and I saw before me my motherland India — a vigorous, throbbing India, sparkling in the bright sunshine — People’s Democratic India, Socialist India!

Srikakulam is fighting valiantly, tomorrow the whole of Andhra will join the fight. Confirmation of this I received on the morning I was coming back. Newspapers on that day reported that one class enemy was killed in an attack by the peasant guerrillas.

Srikakulam forges ahead — irresistibly.

On the Issue of the separate Telengana Movement

Unite India! – Immortal Martyr Respected Leader Comrade Charu Mazumder

 Protect the unity of the people alike the apple of the eyes! – Immortal Martyr Leader of Heart Respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee

 

On the Issue of the separate Telengana Movement

 

The heroic people of Telengana, the holy place of world communist movement,

 

You have a long history of armed struggle against the oppressor class. It was you, who once built up liberated Telengana through armed struggle against imperialism – feudalism. You liberated 3000 villages. Immortal martyrs Comrade: Bangra Ramachandraiya (Warrangal), Comrade Gotti Mukkala, Comrade Gopal Reddy (Nalgonda), Comrade Challapalli, Comrade Narayan Rao(Krishna district), Comrade Reddymalla Rakkayah (Warrangal), and thousands of other martyrs sacrificed their lives in that very battlefield. You are still fighting. We offer millions of red salute to those martyrs.

The heroic peasant class of Telengana was at the helm of that very struggle. Armed agrarian revolution was their principal weapon, and they were enlightened with Marxism – Leninism, Mao Tse-tung’s Thought. That struggle was sabotaged by the conspiracy hatched jointly by the trusted stooge of imperialism in the present day, the murderer Congress government and the renegade revisionists. The renegade B.T Ranadive clique utilised the unconditional faith of the revolutionaries of Telengana upon the great leader of world revolution, great Comrade Stalin. They made the peasants surrender their arms using a forged letter of great Comrade Stalin. The murderer Congress government at that time butchered thousands of peasants.

Naxalbari, created personally by respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder was an answer to that treachery. The Yenan of India was built up in Srikakulam of Andhra under the leadership of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder. The great glorious C.P.I (M-L) was founded. The struggle started over and numerous brave martyrs of Andhra attained martyrdom. Comrade Panchadri Krishnamurthy, Comrade Nirmala Krishnamurthy, Comrade Dr. Malli, Comrade Dr. Bhaskhar Rao, Comrade Dr. Subbarao Panigrahi, Comrade Ankamma, Comrade Gejela Lokanathan, Comrade Neka Jagamohan Reddy, Comrade  Pelly Shankaraiya, Comrade Motagiri Vepparaiya, Comrade Bramhareddy Snehalatha, Comrade Atthuluri Mallikarjuna Rao, Comrade Gotthaiya Kosounkanna, Comrade Mala Konda, Comrade Bamalapokala, Comrade Pakuladinni, Comrade Balaguru Ramakrishna, Comrade Kameganthi Martin, Comrade Muppalarao, Comrade Maiyla Narsaiya, and many other heroic martyrs attained martyrdom by sacrificing their lives for the sake of the liberated India. After the martyrdom of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder, our leader of heart respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee created a new epoch according to the law of history. He built up liberated zones in the countryside. He created Kalinagar, Kamalpur, Ghogibariarpur, and Rabirala – Barpalli of Andhra. Today after the martyrdom of leader of heart Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee, the workers-peasants are marching ahead holding the crimson banner of liberation under the leadership of the class leadership built by him. The heroic peasants of North Bengal’s Teesta basin are marching forward; the heroic peasants of Bihar are marching ahead. The struggle of Telengana is deeply connected with that very struggle. Telengana is the synonym of the struggle against oppression and exploitation.  Your struggle for a separate Telengana, which is an outrage of rebellion against exploitation and injustice, is a long standing one. We respect your great sacrifices made in this united struggle and we red salute it. We believe that the dream of the heroic people of Telengana, the very heir of thousands of martyrs, will come true.

Our leader of heart Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee directed us to be with each struggle waged by the people. Regarding this he used to cite an incident of Russia – an incident which is known as the Bloody Sunday. There had been a horrible food crisis in Tsarist Russia. At that time the starving masses marched peacefully to the winter palace of the Tsar under the leadership of orthodox priest Gapon. The Bolsheviks, under the leadership of great Comrade Lenin warned them, told them – “don’t go! Tsar won’t provide you breads but bullets!”    However the people went to the palace despite the warnings and the Bolsheviks marched with them too. The army of Tsar massacred thousands of people on that Sunday. The Bolsheviks never deserted the people even at the hour of massacre, but integrated more and more with the masses. Through this perseverance the October socialist revolution of 1917 became successful under the leadership of great Comrade Lenin and great Comrade Stalin, and free Soviet Russia was built up.

We believe that the heroic masses of Telengana shall mach ahead on the path of armed agrarian revolution. The very path of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder, the very path of Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee. The very path of Bihar’s Ghogibariarpur, Andhra’s Rabirala, Barpalli. The very path of great China. Leader of heart Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee has implemented the teachings of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution led by Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Vice Chairman Comrade Lin Piao. To take the party as a base, and move ahead by building up the peasants government Revolutionary Committees in the countryside. This is being implemented by the peasants of Telengana of Andhra Pradesh now and it will of course be successful. Due to the weakness in the conscious role of the revolutionary party’s leadership, it had been possible for the reactionaries to divert the struggle of the people’s hope and desire to the wrong path in their vain attempt to win victory in their vile conspiracy. However they cannot win.

We are warning those accomplices of the murderer Congress, who are now in leadership – The leader of TRS K. Chandrashekhar Rao, Political Joint Action Committee leader Professor Kodangram, and the leader of the Telengana People’s Front Gaddar – You cannot take the people of Telengana in the wrong direction, and even we would not let you do that.

The vile conspiracy behind the demand of the separate Telengana shall be doomed. The heirs of the thousands of martyrs of Telengana, who are since marching ahead on the path of Naxalbari – Srikakulam-Ghogibariarpur-Rabirala – Barpalli shall doom this conspiracy, and build up an exploitation free Telengana. A liberated and free India.

We have to be aware of the revisionist thoughts. We must remember the great teaching of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution – Fight Self! Combat Revisionism!

Today those who are making pacts with the reactionaries claiming that a separate Telengana province will solve all problems while chanting Marxism – Leninism Mao Tse-tung’s Thought, they are committing grave crime.

The comrades of Telengana are also taking the responsibility on behalf of making successful the thought of voluntary unity, as directed by great Comrade Lenin and Comrade Stalin against separatism, chauvinism. We want to interpret the teachings of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution in the words of respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder – “declared war against all type of selfishness, factionalism, revisionism, tailism of bourgeoisie, and propagation of bourgeoisie ideology”. The call of that revolution was – “Fight self! Combat Revisionism”.

 

The heroic people of Telengana, you have a long history of armed struggle for the establishment of a society of communism, crimsoned with the blood. The base of the same is invincible Mao Tse-tung’s Thought, the great theory of People’s war of Vice Chairman Comrade Lin Piao. Respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder has commanded us to learn revolutionary faith with utmost respect from the revolutionaries of Telengana. Yes, of course we are following the same. Also we rest our faith upon you that only you will be able to solve this problem of Telengana very accurately, and smash all vile conspiracies. We have learned from respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder –Srikakulam  of Andhra Pradesh is the yardstick of revolutionaries in the present day.

 

Red salute to the heroic people of great Telengana.

Long live great Srikakulam.

Red flame of Naxalbari is flaring up in all directions and will continue to flare up.

The peasants government Revolutionary Committee following the path of Ghogaibariarpur and Rabiralla is solving all problems.

Immortal martyr leader of heart Respected Comrade Mahadev Mukherjee is alive within the C.P.I (M-L) built personally by Respected leader Comrade Charu Mazumder and within the people.
