Maoist uprising which has taken the from of armed struggle is indigenous. It has become an unending insurgency due to the injustices and state terrorism perpetrad by the rich Hindus and Indian security forces.
Maoist affected districts in India based on 2011 data:
The activities of Maoist rebels are on an all time high. The training facilities of the militants and saboteurs are undeterred by the Indian Police and other law enforcing agencies. Initially the movement had its centre in West Bengal. In recent years, it has spread into less developed areas of rural central and eastern India, such as Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh, through the activities of underground groups like the Communist Party of India (Maoist).
As of 2009, Naxalites are active across approximately 220 districts in 20 states of India, accounting for about 40 percent of India’s geographical area. They are especially concentrated in an area known as the “Red Corridor”, where they control 92,000 square kilometres.
Maoist movement which had been raging in West Bengal, Bihar, Orissa, Jharkand, Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, has expanded to Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Now, it is a popular movement which has massive support of people for its ideology.
Map showing the first 60 IAP districts. The Ring of Fire in Central India is now spread across 78 districts in 9 states.
Operation green hunt will be focussed on 78 IAP districts spread across 9 states identified by the GOI. These districts form a ring in central India and are the most affected by Maoist Insurgency.
There is no doubt that Maoists of India are fighting for the basic rights of lower and middle classes, which have been usurped by the upper classes supported by the Indian government. Just as we have noted in case of some other states of India, especially in the occupied Kashmir where struggle of liberation continues in one or the other way when people take to arms, there is going to be all kinds of violence by the freedom fighters and the revolutionaries. So Indian so-called democratic system is responsible for the drastic situation it has created.
