On the Cowardly Murder of Three Leading Members of the Communist
Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (People's War)
5 January 2000
Message to the Central
Committee, Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (People's
War) from the Committee of the Revolutionary Internationalist Movement
It was with great grief that our Committee has learned of the loss
of Comrades Nalla Adi Reddy (Shyam), Arramreddy Santosh Reddy (Mahesh)
and Seelam Naresh (Murali) at the hands of the reactionary ruling
classes of India. As members of the Central Committee of your Party,
all three of these comrades had played a leading role in the advances
of the Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) (People's War),
and their loss saddens all genuine communists and revolutionaries
throughout the world, as well as in India.
The murder of these comrades after being captured by the enemy
hundreds of kilometres away from where their bodies were deposited
comes on top of the killings of hundreds of other leaders, members
and supporters of the CPIML (People's War) over the last few years.
In this latest case, as in so many others, the authorities have
tried to cover over cowardly murders of unarmed prisoners as "encounter
killings". In India and abroad, revolutionary and progressive
forces are exposing and condemning this dastardly act.
You have aroused millions of the oppressed masses in wide areas
of India and shown that "it is right to rebel" and that
only through people's war will it be possible to defeat the powerful
enemies of imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat capitalism. Your
Party has based itself upon the proletarian ideology developed by
Marx, Lenin and Mao and is fighting to carry out the new-democratic
revolution in India as part of the world proletarian revolution,
whose goal is communism. For these reasons the reactionary Indian
state lashes out in vicious fury against the CPIML (People's War).
But no amount of terror or brutality will save the reactionary classes
from their doom.
Comrades, despite these bitter losses our Committee and the parties
and organisations of RIM are confident that your Party will turn
your grief into strength and further advance the cause of the proletariat
and the oppressed masses in your country. The sacrifices of Comrade
Adi Reddy, Comrade Santosh Reddy and Comrade Naresh will be avenged
by the ultimate defeat of the reactionary ruling classes.
