COMMUNIST PARTY OF INDIA (MAOIST)
Let us advance our revolution in the path of Martyrs.
The Central Committee of the CPI (Maoist) is releasing the life histories of martyred CC members in three languages i.e. English, Hindi and Telugu simultaneously. Since the Naxalbari rebellion of 1967, 14,800 comrades sacrificed their valuable lives all over the country in the process of defending the path of Protracted People’s War established by the founders of our party and great leaders of Indian Revolution Comrade CM and Comrade KC, to take it forth and enrich it. There are 1,169 women comrades out of them. Especially after the formation of our new Party CPI (Maoist), 4,576 comrades became martyrs in the past 18 years with the objective of accomplishing New Democratic Revolution in India, as a part of World Socialist Revolution. 856 of them are heroic women warriors. On the occasion let us pay humble revolutionary homage to the martyrs and pledge to make relentless efforts and fight until the last drop of blood to make true their dreams to establish a new society free of exploitation and oppression, i.e., Communism.
Comrades CM and KC played a great, vanguard role in laying revolutionary theoretical, political and organisational foundations by creatively applying Marxism-Leninism-Maoism (MLM) to the concrete conditions of India. The Naxalbari Armed Agrarian Revolutionary struggle made impact on each and every sphere of Indian society. It changed its historic dynamics. Since the Naxalbari rebellion of 1967, 14,800 comrades sacrificed their valuable lives all over the country in the process of defending the path of Protracted People’s War established by the founders of our party and great leaders of Indian Revolution Comrade CM and Comrade KC, to take it forth and enrich it. There are 1,169 women comrades out of them. There are 41 members of the CC and front rank leaders including Comrade Charu Mazumdar and Comrade Kanhai Chatterjee in the process of New Democratic Revolution in India.
Together, they represent several generations of revolutionaries who ceaselessly strove all their lives to carry forward the banner of India’s armed agrarian revolutionary war by being at its forefront. They provided continuity of leadership from the days of the great Naxalbari uprising to the emergence of CPI(Maoist) and after till to day – the inheritor of all the positive aspects of the pre and post-Naxalbari communist movement in India.
The comrades belonged to different revolutionary streams that charted independent course after the disintegration and splits in the revolutionary movement following its setback in the early 1970s. The martyred CCMs therefore stand for the unity of India’s genuine communist revolutionary streams which turned into a mighty current with the emergence of the unified all-India Maoist party as a single guiding centre of Indian revolution. Their life histories are thus closely intertwined with and parallel the history of India’s communist movement, particularly since Naxalbari. In studying these life histories we can learn about the movement in different phases of its development with its specific features and histories in different regions of the country. So, our CC suggesting all the well wishers of th Indian revolution to read the life histories of the martyrs who laid their blood to the cause of Indian revolution.
