India Confronts Maoists!

The ongoing struggle in India between the government and Maoist forces continues even though the recent military campaign has endeavored to finally crush these militants. As the India armed forces prepares to continue Operation Green Hunt, top Maoist leaders are discussing their future and whether military action is the best method of achieving goals or will peaceful negotiation by a better approach. Kishanji, military strategist for the Maoists wants to continue fighting, but a powerful section of the central committee believes it is time for another path toward victory. India has offered the choice of a massive crackdown or the alternative of peaceful negotiations.

Maoists are asking the India government to: (a) withdraw forces from their current positions; (b) lift ban on their party, and (c) release top Maoists from jail. Who knows what eventually will result?
