Democracy and Class Struggle report of death of 20 comrades in Chattisgarh's Bijapur on Sunday
Democracy and Class Struggle publish a report of death of 20 comrades in Chattisgarh's Bijapur on Sunday - we are days away from the 50 Anniversary of the Naxalbari Uprising.
Democracy and Class Struggle reaffirms Naxalites never die they multiply.
The Indian State cannot kill the idea that rose at Naxalbari - it is immortal as are the martyrs who have fought for India's day of National and Social Liberation.
India must free itself from the brahmanical Hindu Rashtra - Brahmanism and neo Liberalism resonate in India today - but they will create their own gravediggers as history has shown.

In major operations against Maoists, 20 Naxalites were killed by security agencies in Chattisgarh’s Bijapur on Sunday. “About 350 jawans part of the Operation, first time saw Maoists wearing COBRA uniform, 20 naxals have been killed in Operation,” IG, CRPF was quoted as saying by ANI.
This comes days after 25 men of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were martyred in a deadly attack by Naxals in Chhattisgarh’s Sukma area.
The encounter originally took place two days ago, i.e. Sunday.
Two police personnel were also reported killed in the encounter.
The injured men reportedly belong to the District Reserve Group (DRG). ANI reported that Indian Air Force evacuated the two injured personnel and airlifted them to Ramakrishna hospital in Raipur.
The encounter, which apparently looks as a major success, came weeks after 25 CRPF jawans were killed in Sukma district.
Earlier this month, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh pitched for an aggressive strategy to combat the naxal issue. “We have to bring aggression in our policy, there should be aggression in our thinking, aggression in our strategy, aggression in the deployment of security forces, aggression in operations, aggression in bringing development, aggression in road construction,” Singh said.
Singh also asked states affected by left-wing extremism to take ownership of the anti-naxal operations.
