In Bihar party activists paid tribute to Charu Mazumdar at the State Party office in capital Patna as well as other places. Com. Ramjatan Sharma said that Charu Mazumdar was a visionary who brought together farmers, workers, students and youth for the cause of revolution, breaking the indifference towards social change and laying the foundations of political and social change. Comrade Kunal said that the ruling classes including the Congress thought to crush revolutionary Communist ideology with the killing of Charu Mazumdar but they did not succeed. Today the Communist and Left ideology is the strongest weapon against the dark fascist forces who are ruling the country.

In Darbhanga a District level activists’ convention was organized during which preparations for the huge rally on 27 September under the ‘Oust BJP Save Democracy’ campaign were discussed. Responsibilities were also fixed for the success of the Jail Bharo Movement to be held on 9 August during which the following issues would be raised: complete loan waivers for farmers. Speaking on the occasion Dhirendra Jha strongly condemned the sexual violence and rapes perpetrated in the Shelter Homes at Muzaffarpur and other places and said even after the resignation of minister Manju Verma under the pressure of the movement, the state government is explicitly involved in protecting the culprits. He demanded that another minister Suresh Sharma, close to the accused Brajesh Thakur, must also resign if the CBI enquiry is to be free and fair. The convention was attended by hundreds of activists.

The CPI(ML) and Jan Sanskriti Manch observed the 46th anniversary of Charu Mazumdar’s martyrdom as Sankalp Diwas at the Lenin Book Centre in Lucknow. Speaking on the occasion Arun Kumar, Ramesh Singh Senger, poet Kaushal Kishore and JSM State convener Com. Shyam Ankuram discussed his political, ideological and organizational contribution. The speakers pointed out that Charu Mazumdar recognized that the landless and poor farmers are the pivot of revolution and therefore called on students and youth to go to the villages and integrate themselves with the peasants. Despite extreme repression, Naxalbari is still alive and is at the forefront in the fight against corporate fascism today. Kaushal Kishore presented two poems composed by him, ‘Gaate Hue’ and ‘Swapn Abhi Adhura Hai’.
