Press Statement : On Formation of Telengana

With the passage of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganization Bill in both houses of Parliament, the struggle of people of Telengana for separate state has been victorious. Over a thousand students and youth have laid down their lives for Telengana with hundreds dying by police bullets in their long struggle. These sacrifices and tenacity and determination displayed by people of Telengana have met with success. Central Committee of CPI(ML)-New Democracy congratulates the people of Telengana over this victory.

Tribals, dalits, backwards and minorities constitute overwhelming proportion of the population (91%) of state of Telengana. There have been continuous struggles of these sections, peasants and workers, for land and other rights. It is the land of the Great Telengana Armed Struggle. CPI(ML)-New Democracy is confident that these struggles will scale new heights and score great victories in the state of Telengana.

Formation of Telengana is in no way opposed to the interests of people of Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema. Anti-Telengana sentiments have been whipped up by ruling politicians of these regions who had amassed huge wealth utilizing their proximity to power and to divert the attention of the people from their issues like displacement of lakhs of peasants and fisherfolks. While concerns of the people of these regions, particularly relating to their safety in Hyderabad, should be addressed, the present stage of movement has been marked by no ill-will among the people of different regions.… Read More

CPI-ML Land Struggles Ruling Class

Press Release – CPI(M-L) New Democracy opposes High Court decision to free Bathe killers

             The Bihar State Committee of the CPI(M-L) New Democracy strongly opposes the decision of the Patna High Court declaring all the accused in the Bathe genocide not guilty and freeing them. The result is that after a long process of 16 years, the govt., its police machinery and the judiciary has not found guilty or punished a single person for the brutal cold-blooded massacre of 58 landless poor peasants mostly dalits in Laxmanpur Bathe on the night of 1-2nd December 1997. It is no secret that Bathe massacre was a part of a series of murderous assaults unleashed by landlord goonda gangs and private armies in order to terrorize landless and poor peasants of Bihar who were daring to stand up against feudal exploitation and oppression. This decision and the earlier similar decision in the Bathani Tola massacre case will further embolden the oppressor upper caste landlords and their goonda gangs and armies like the erstwhile Ranvir Sena in Bihar. This decision is another reminder to the exploited and oppressed toiling masses particularly dalits, adivasis, minorities that they cannot expect to get justice under the present law enforcement system and it is only through intensifying their own struggles that they can defend themselves.… Read More

9th September 2013 – Press Release on Muzaffarnagar Riots

UP Committee of CPI(ML) ND has expressed its deep anguish at the massive loss of innocent lives and property in the communal clashes that have erupted in Muzzafarnagar and adjoining districts and has appealed to the people to maintain restraint. It has severely condemned the continous communal mobilization done by BJP and others in the entire area against muslims since August 27 incident of village Kawal. The callous and inept handling of the inflamatory situation by SP govt shows that the UP govt has actually connived to allow these clashes to take place.
There are very serious doubts about the August 27 incident of alleged eve teasing, a muslim youth being killed and then 2 brothers being lynched. The August 28th incident was first reported as an accident nvolving two motorcycles. The video circulated by BJP MLA Sangeet Som is 2 years old, it took place in a foreign country and has nothing to do with this incident. This is a full replay of the Gujarat game plan carried out by Amit Shah and Narendra Modi in 2002 where throughout Gujarat they made emotive propaganda of “safety of Hindu girls” under attack by muslim boys and unleashed communal attacks on muslims.… Read More
