After severe crackdown on naxals, CPI-Maoists looking to recruit new ‘educated and intellectual youth’

The debilitated left-wing terror groups after facing a heavy onslaught from the security forces seem to be struggling to recruit new members. According to the reports, the Communist Party of India (Maoist) is looking for new urban members and intellectual youth to assist the armed wing and educate tribals and Dalits.

Reportedly, Naxal groups are facing a severe shortage of cadres, after the successful crackdown under the present NDA government. The CPI-Maoist party mouthpiece ‘Lal Chingari Prakashan’ has called for urban youth and intellectuals to join them, as the party is in a shortage of educated masses, said politburo member Prashanta Bose, alias Kishanda.

The report says that the CPI-Maoist has recently launched a retirement scheme for the aged and physically unfit leaders, who cannot operate from the underground and carry out its activities.

Bose claimed that the biggest challenge for the party has been building a second line of leadership. He further admitted that the CPI-Maoist had failed to groom effective future leaders. This comes as the present government has been successful in cracking down on the Naxals-both in tribal and urban areas.

“Except West Bengal, in areas of Assam, Bihar and Jharkhand we have created base among Dalits, tribals and the poor. So, in such a situation where the level of education is low, making them understand the real meaning of principles of Marxism is a tough job,” the 72-year-old leader said. He further added that party is in search of revolutionary, educated and intellectual comrades to train and educate the tribals, Dalits and the poor. It needs a lot of determination to train and educate the Dalit and the poor cadre of our party. The number of educated cadre in war zones is very less,” Bose said.

According to Prashanta Bose, the banned outfit has asked all its committees to send “educated students and its intellectual comrades, who are true to the principles of the revolution, to Left-wing conflict zones” as early as possible. He added that they are confident of finding such educated, young and dynamic comrades very soon and he said the party will start building a good third and second generation leadership.

Last year, reportedly, the CPI (Maoist) central committee had adopted a resolution to relieve the leaders who are unable to fulfil their responsibilities and to provide work according to their capacity. This resulted in creating a vacuum in the mid and senior level leadership. The banned outfit has also prepared an organisational and political document along with a training manual to train next level leaders, but the plan is supposed to have failed.

Coming down hard on Naxals, especially in Urban areas has been one of the major achievements of the present government. We had earlier reported that how extensive and targeted action on Naxals by security agencies combined with wide-spread socio-economic development has resulted in the massive desertion of Naxals and joining the mainstream for better livelihood opportunities.
