Indian Maoists forge new alliance

Maoists have a presence in 182 districts of India.

Maoist rebels in India and a leading separatist group in the country’s north-east have decided to work together, according to a statement. The rebels and the Revolutionary Peoples Front (RPF) of Manipur said
they would fight to “overthrow” India’s ruling regime.

The RPF is one of Manipur’s oldest separatist groups. It has an armed wing which attacks Indian security forces and punishes drug peddlers and woman traffickers. Formed in 1976, a number of RPF’s early leaders were trained in China.

A joint statement signed by S Gunen, the RPF secretary-general, and Comrade Alok of the underground Maoist party said they supported the “great Indian class struggle led by the Maoists against India’s semi-feudal, semi-colonial regime”. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said the Maoist insurgency is the “single biggest threat” to India’s security.
