Days after Union Home Minister
Rajnath Singh cautioned that the CPI-Maoist is down but not out,
the Maoists have claimed that what he said was right. CPI-Maoist's
Bihar-Jharkhand Special Area Committee (BJSAC) general secretary
Rupeshji said their silence should not be mistaken for disenchantment
of the militia with its ideology. "It could be a part of our strategy
that we are not willing to waste our energy, forces and weapons,
but an appropriate response will be given to the security forces
if they continue with their repression," he said. Talking exclusively
to Times of India on November 15, Rupeshji said though
they have been facing difficulties in terms of repression by security
forces and covert action of the state-sponsored armed intelligence
groups, such actions have made the outfit even more determined.
Citing a recent example of villagers in Madanpur area under Aurangabad
district of Bihar, who blocked the National Highway (GT road)
to protest against atrocities by CRPF personnel, the BJSAC chief
said that such protests are going to be commonplace all over Jharkhand
and Bihar. "Martyrdom of Kalawati Devi and Ramadhan Bhuinya, killed
in police firing during the protest, will not be allowed to go
waste and villagers are being trained to rise against the repression
of security forces," he said, indicating towards Saranda, where
a mass movement is being planned against the forceful eviction
of villages to give mining rights to 19 private companies. "How
long can the government succeed if the villagers themselves rise
against them?" he argued.

Area Committee (EBEJSAC) - to dominate four districts of Dumka,
Godda, Pakur and Jamtara under Santhal Pargana division and Bhagalpur,
Banka, Jamui Lakhisarai and Monghyr in Bihar - is part of the
strategy adopted during the fourth central committee meeting of
the CPI Maoists held in 2013.
