India's Tribal district wrost effected by Naxal Violence
By Akhand in Bhubaneswar, India
Peaceful eastern Indian state odisha is now hit by naxal violence. Odisha’s Koraput district is very much affected by the terror activities. Communist Party of India (Maoist) with the support of the local tribal intensified its movement for land rights in Narayan Patna area. In the banner of Chasi mulia Adivasi Sangha, (Association of tribal farmers and laborers) the tribal raises their voice against Indian Government. They are continuing their attack on non-tribal and forced them to get out from the tribal land.
Also the CMAS members capture the agricultural land of non-tribal and started to cultivate these lands. The whole Narayan Patna area is in the capture of Naxals outfit and CMAS. But Odisha state Government is not so serious about the issue. Administration is a total failure to tackle the naxal violence, says sivananda ray, the vice-president of chief opposition party in the state.
There are central reserve police Force (CRPF), Special Officer Group, Odisha Armed police Force, Odisha special striking Force and cobra Force to tackle terror outfits. Police department special branch and special intelligence wing are also working to provide movements of the naxal cadres. State Government provides special package and allowances to the police officials working in the naxal hit areas to boost their moral.
But Government has failed to tackle armed naxal in this remote district. Police station and police out-post are merely witness of this violence. More than three hundred families have already left their village. CMAS has been supported by naxal outfit to intensify its moments for so called land rights.
The Maoist organization has tried to get local support by motivating the people about their problems and concern. And also some local people support this movement as Governments welfare plan and program could not execute properly due to corruption by the bureaucracy and local leaders.
Narayan Patana became the capital of the naxals. They are planning to spread the movement to the other districts. According to a reliable source, CPI (M) has started co-ordination among the three special zonal committee of hardcore Maoists. These comities are Andra-Odisha-Bihar special zonal committee (AOBSZC), Jhrkhand-Bihar-Odisha Special Zonal committee (JBOSZC) and third one is Odisha- West-Bengal-Jharkhand Special Zonal Committee (OWJSZC).
First committee is responsible for all Maoist activities in south Odisha districts like malkanagiri, Koraput, Gajapati, Nabarangpur, Raygada and Ganjam. The committee has set-up two divisions or bureau to handle Maoist attack. These are Malkanagiri division, which is also known as Northern Bureau and Banshadhara Division or Southern Bureau.
Second committee works in the districts of Sundergarh and sambalpur. And third committee is spreading its activities in the jurisdiction of Mayurbhanj and keonjhar. Ghumusar division is a special Bureau under this committee. Beside that in Koraput and Kandhamal districts Dandakaranya Special committee is very active. Many sub groups known as ‘Dalam’ is working under the supervision of this committee. Subgroups like Kalimela Dalam, Popular Dalam, Motu Dalam, Jhanjabati Dalam, Uday Dalam are engaged in Maoist activities including violence and membership drive.
On the other hand state Government is seems to be not serious on the naxal issues. The chief Minister of the Odisha state, who is also in charge of internal security department said that “We are trying to fight with terror. Combing operation is on. And I hope we will win”.
But the ground reality says quite different. Narayan Patana is becoming the capital of the red corridor movements.
