COMMUNIST PARTY OF INDIA (MAOIST)

CENTRAL COMMITTEE

Press Release: May 5, 2009 – (Became available June 29, 2009)

The political crisis in Nepal is the result of Indo-US conspiracy!

Oppose the attempts by Indian expansionists to meddle in the internal affairs of Nepal!

People’s democracy can be established in Nepal only by smashing the old state!!

Withdrawal of support by CPN(UML), MJF and other allies to the government headed by comrade Prachanda does not come as a surprise to any keen observer of the unfolding situation in Nepal in the context of the growing realignment of forces in South Asia and the world at large. South Asia has become a top-priority zone for American imperialism in the context of its growing rivalry with China which is seen as the greatest threat to American imperialism in the world arena in the coming decades. Besides, its importance has grown against the backdrop of a series of defeats suffered by the occupation forces of NATO and US in Afghanistan at the hands of Taliban and the latter’s fast-expanding hold and influence in Pakistan. The strategy of US imperialism in the region is to contain the growing influence of China and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), forge a powerful pro-American axis of powers to turn the tide in its favour in Afghanistan where its forces are on the run in the renewed Taliban offensive, and establish its hegemony in the region as part of its global strategic designs. To achieve this goal American imperialism has been trying to forge an alliance with Pakistan and India, preaching to Pakistan that it should do away with its obsession with threat from India and, instead, concentrate on war in its western frontier to crush Taliban.

12 policemen wiped out in daring Maoist ambush in Dhamtari (Dandakaranya)

On May 10 Maoist guerrillas carried out a daring tactical counteroffensive against a CRPF contingent in Dhamtari district near border with Kanker district in Chattisgarh. At least 12 CRPF personnel were wiped out in the operation while another ten were injured. Some were said to have been missing after the ambush.

The CRPF personnel numbering 41 were going to Kanker in four vehicles after carrying out combing operations for Maoists. Maoists lay in ambush over a hiilock and lured the policemen into their trap. One of the vehicles was blown to pieces while others were fired upon. The entire enemy force was encircled and half the force was either annihilated or inured. Several arms were also seized by the guerrillas from the policemen.
