Media Silent over Maoist threat to democracy in Chattisghat

via Raghavan Nair published on December 6, 2006



Judging by events reported from Chattisghat, any one could deduce the ways Maoist are taking control of that state.  Elections are being held in Chattisghat on 8 December 2006 for the 1884 seats in the tribal districts Danthavatha and Kankar. Due to threats from the Maoists who are in total control of the tribal areas, none came forward to contest the elections in 923 seats. Of the remaining 961 seats, 687 have been already elected unopposed; thereby on 8 December, the election will be held only for the remaining 274 seats.  However, another by-election may be held later for the remaining 923 seats, but under the circumstances, there are no signs that the Maoists shall turn back from their threats and the tribals may dare to come forward to contest elections.


It is surprising that a situation of this magnitude has not attracted any public debate or reported as an item of any importance in our media. When we project ourselves as champions of democracy and a nation in the thrush hold of emerging as a world power, what good it shall bring if the government in power fails to recognize the threat to national security from within itself. An unbiased citizen could only understand that things like this could not go unnoticed unless they are supported by power centers in the country.


When the only Hindu Kingdom Nepal was demolished on the behest of Maoist groups in the country, it was feared that the emergence of that group from underground to the positions in state governance shall lead to spread of that group to adjacent Indian states, especially Chattisghat. The mediators for Maoists in Nepal were our communist party leaders who are the all powerful at centre and Nation’s policy makers. Thereby, the silence of central government on Maoist threats to the tribal districts of Chattisghat could be due to the indulgence of the Marxist party supporting the UPA government.


Chattisghat may be a state far away from Kerala and things taking shape there may have little relevance to our existence. But, forces behind such events taking place at different parts of the country are the same and they understand and recognize only one colour, RED.  Thereby, we must expose their designs as and when they come to light and enlighten people through the ways possible.
