Left-wing Extremist group People’s War Group (PWG) Official name: The Communist Party of India (Marxist Leninist) (People’s War) -- CPI-ML (PW) 1. Formation The People’s War Group was formed in Southern Indian State of Andhra Pradesh on April 22, 1980 by Kondapalli Seetharamaiah, one of the most influential Naxalite leaders in the State and a member of the erstwhile Central Organising Committee of the Communist Party of India––Marxist-Leninist, (CPI-ML). Seetharamaiah was later expelled from the group. He died unsung on April 12, 2002. The PWG’s operations commenced in Karimnagar district, in the North Telengana region of Andhra Pradesh, and subsequently spread to other parts of the State as well as in other States. 2. Objectives The PWG traces its ideology to the Chinese leader Mao Tse Tung’s theory of organised peasant insurrection. It rejects parliamentary democracy and believes in capturing political power through protracted armed struggle based on guerrilla warfare. This strategy entails building up of bases in rural and remote areas and transforming them first into guerrilla zones and then as liberated zones, besides the area-wise seizure and encircling cities. The eventual objective is to install a "people’s government" through the "people’s war". In short, as the PWG claims, it wishes to usher in a New Democratic revolution (NDR). 3. Leadership and Command Structure Muppala Lakshman Rao, alias Ganapathi is the General Secretary of the outfit. The Central Committee (CC) leads the PWG, and is the highest policy making body of the group. Elections to the CC were last held in March 2001, at which its strength was expanded as well as vacancies filled in, following the death in an encounter, in 1999, of three CC members in the Koyyuru forests, Karinmagar, Andhra Pradesh. The CC of the PWG comprises 21 permanent members and six alternate members, reportedly referred to by the PWG as 21 plus six. Alternate members are those who stand in for the permanent members at meetings during their absence. It is believed that the following 21 persons are the permanent members of the CC; Their name/ designation/ identity is listed here: 1 Muppala Lakshmana Rao alias Ganapathi––General Secretary. 2 Cherukuri Rajkumkar alias Devanna alias Uday alias Madhu. 3 Mallojula Koteswara Rao. 4 Naveen Prasad, of Party Unity that had merged with the PWG. 5 Nambala Keshava Rao @ Ganganna, also a member of the Central Military Commission. 6.

The Maharashtra State Committee Secretary 21. The Tamil Nadu State Committee Secretary Dr. P Vara Vara Rao is another influential leader, and is often projected as the PWG’s principal ‘ideologue’. Yet another leader is balladeer Gadar. The PWG draws a clear distinction between the political and military wings of the outfit. On the political side the organisational hierarchy <../images/pwg.jpg> of the PWG consists of the Central Committee at the apex, Regional Bureaus, Zonal or State Committees, District or Division Committees and Squad Area Committees. In the military sphere, the Central Military Commission (CMC) headed by the General Secretary Ganapathi stands at the top. And there are military commissions parallel to the political committees at each level. At the bottom is the Village Defence Squad, consisting of a handful of people in a village, organised as a people’s militia, and possessing basic training in handling small arms. At the political level, the Village Governance Committee is the mirror committee. The main fighting force of the outfit is a platoon comprising 25 to 30 highly trained guerrillas organised into sections and sub-sections. There are two types of paltoons––the military platoon and the protection platoon. The outfit organises its platoons as military platoons and protection platoons and fields them in the guerrilla zones. The dalam or armed squad comprising 5-7 cadres is a secondary-fighting unit. The strength of a squad is varied, as is its type. Mostly, it is in the form of a local guerrilla squad (LGS) and in some areas it functions as a central guerrilla squad (CGS). The fighting force of the PWG is organised as the People’s Guerrilla Army (PGA ). It has a flag and an insignia, too. The PGA was formed in December 2000. Estimates on the fire-power of the PWG suggest that the group has about 60 highly mobile and motivated squads of 40 persons each. In about 125 villages they run parallel administration. According to police estimate, the PWG has around 1000 to 1050 underground cadres. Besides the outfit has about 5,000 overground activists. The PWG also has a string of front organisations of students, youth, industrial workers, miners, farm hands, women, poets, writers and cultural artists. Some among these are listed below: Andhra Pradesh Rythu Coolie Sangham (Agricultural labourers association) Singareni Karmika Samakhya (Singareni collieries workers federation) Viplava Karmika Samakhya (Revolutionary workers federation) Radical Students Union Radical Youth League All India Revolutionary Students Federation Bihar Lok Sangram Morcha (People’s Struggle Front) Mazddor Kisam Mukti Morcha (Workers-Peasants Liberation Front) Jan Mukti Parishad (People’s Liberation Council) Mazdoor Kisan Ekta Morcha (Workers-Peasants Unity Front) Bharat Navjawan Sabha (Indian Youth Association) Mazdoor Kisan Sangrami Parishad (Workers-Peasants Struggle Council) Shramik Sangram Manch (Workers Struggle Platform) Nari Mukti Sangharsh Samiti (Women’s Liberation Struggle Association) Sangharsha Jana Mukti Morcha (People’s Liberation Struggle Front) Democratic Students Union All India People’s Resistance Forum Madhya Pradesh Adivasi Kisan Mazdoor Sangh (Tribal Peasants-Workers Association) Krantikari Kisan Mazdoor Sangh (Revolutionary Peasants-Workers Association) Krantikari Balak Sangh (Revolutionary Children’s Association) Gram Raksha Dal (Village Defence Force) Gram Rajya Samiti (Village governance council) 4. Area of Operation The PWG maintains a string of bases in remote and inaccessible areas and currently runs virtual parallel government in some ‘liberated zones’, particularly in the tribal areas in the Dandakaranya belt. The outfit, at present is active in parts of, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, Orissa, Jharkhand, West Bengal and Bihar. The outfit has been making attempts to establish and expand its presence in several other States such as Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka in Southern India, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan in Northern India. Andhra Pradesh North Telangana—Khammam, Warangal, Karimnagar, Nizamabad and Adilabad districts South Telangana—Mehboobnagar, Nalgonda and Medak districts Rayalseema Region—Anantpur and Kurnool districts North Coastal Andhra—East Godavari, Visakhapatanam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam South Coastal Andhra—Guntur district Bihar In Bihar, the PWG established its presence with the merger with the Communist Party of India, Marxist-Leninist, CPI-ML (Party Unity) in 1998. Since then the outfit has expanded and consolidated its area of operations in many districts. At present, the PWG is active in Patna, Aurangabad, Gaya, Jehanabad, Rohtas, Buxur, Saharsha, Khagaria, Banka and Jamui districts. Jharkhand Palamau, Garhwah, Latehar, Gumla, Chatra Hazaribag and Koderma districts. Orissa Malkangiri, Koraput, Gajapati, Rayagada and Nowrangpur in Southern Orssia, and Mayurbhanj district in Northern Orissa. Maharashtra Gadchiroli, Bhandara and Chandrapur districts. Chhattisgarh Jagdalpur, Bastar, Kanker, Rajnadgaon, Dantewada, Sarguja, Kawardha and Jashpur districts. Madhya Pradesh Balaghat, Dhindoli and Mandla districts. West Bengal Midnapore, Purulia and Bakura districts. 5. External Linkages The PWG is believed to have links with left-wing extremist groups in other parts of the World. The outfit has fraternal relations with the Liberation Army of Peru and the Kurdistan Workers Party. The PWG has also been trying to internationalise its appeal. It attended an international Seminar organised by the Workers Party of Belgium in May 1995, along with 60 other organisations from 40 countries. The group is believed to have links with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE <../../shrilanka/terroristoutfits/Ltte.htm>) of Sri Lanka, and some of its cadres are reported to have received arms training from LTTE rebels. The PWG maintains active links with other Maoist outfits in South Asia. On July 1, 2001, nine left wing extremist outfits active in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh formed an umbrella organisation, the Coordination Committes of Maoist Parties and Orgainsations (CCOMPOSA) with a purpose to unify and coordinate the activities of the Maoist parties and organisations in South Asia. The CCOMPOSA comprises India: People's War Group (PWG), Maoist Communist Centre (), Revolutionary Communist Centre of India (MLM), Revolutionary Communist Centre of India (Maoist) from India, Bangladesh: Purba Bangla Sarbahara Party (Maoist Punargathan Kendra) Purba Bangla Sarbahara Party Bangladesh Samaywadi Party (ML) Nepal: Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) <../../nepal/terroristoutfits/index.html> Sri Lanka: Communist Party of Ceylon (Maoist) The PWG along with the Maoist Communist Centre (MCC) and the Maoist insurgents in Nepal is believed to be instrumental in the formation of the CCOMPOSA for greater cooperation and understanding among the left wing extremist groups in India and Nepal. The real significance of the consolidated of linkages between the PWG and Maoists in Nepal needs to be assessed within the context of the larger strategy to set up a "Compact Revolutionary Zone" (CRZ) extending from Nepal through Bihar and the Dandakaranya region to Andhra Pradesh. For some time now, the PWG with other left wing extremists groups active in the sub-continent has been trying to achieve the objective of the CRZ to further unifiy, expand and consolidate left wing extremist movement in different parts of India and its neighbourhood 6.
