Communist party of India (Maoist)
State committee Karnataka
Respectable editors and representatives of media, revolutionary greetings.
We are sending this press release regarding
1) Murder of peasants, peasants struggle and scarcity of chemical fertilizers,
2) Price rise and Inflation
Requesting to publish this with due consideration.
Yours in struggle,
For the state committee
11-06-08 CPI (Maoist)
1) We are strongly condemning the brutal and cold blooded murder of agitating peasants and indiscriminate firing on sons of the soil by the BJP government of Karnataka.
This is nothing but fascist moves of newly formed government. Govt reacted with false assurances and bullets rather than considering demands of fortnight long agitating peasants of state and doing proper arrangements for supply of chemical fertilizers insecticides etc. At the same time all these worst politicians are busy with quarrel, ministry ship sharing and planning of loot.
Peasants are in acute pressure of loan repayments and severe income crunch due to globalization designs of state and central governments dictated by imperialist masters. By that they are agitating militantly with the apprehension of this year’s future.
Government should take responsibility of all these undue ness and murder.
We are strongly demanding to arrest immediately, police officials responsible for shooting and murder of peasants under murder case.
We are demanding to make responsible the ministries and officials for artificial scarcity of chemical fertilizers, anti people moves and irresponsibility.
We are supporting militant struggles and seizer of unlawful stock of fertilizers by the peasants.
We are appealing to people, democratic, progressive organizations and individuals to condemn this brutal murder and firing, build vast mass movements against this.
Govt, fertilizer companies and big fertilizer traders are playing worst by creating artificial scarcity and charging higher price. They are least concerned with the sons of the soil.
2) People, particularly poor and middle class are in shock of unprecedented price rise and inflation. Food and other day today usables are going out of reach of common people. Adding to the wounds, now petrol and diesel prices are increased.
Inflation and economic recession are common in global level now, because of crisis of imperialism, i.e. world capitalism. Ruling classes and their central and state governments are squeezing landless and poor peasants, poor and middle class people, petty, small and medium traders, small scale and medium scale industries etc by all means, for guaranteeing profit to imperialist and comprador companies. This is the main reason for income crunch of people and further deterioration of livelihood.
We are appealing to all people to unite together by throwing out all these political goons and struggle against imperialism and their local stooges. Build people’s new democratic social system as only way to coming out this crisis.
With revolutionary greetings
For the state committee
