Siliguri, 16 November: COME 24 May 2017 and the Naxalbari Movement would complete 50 years.

CPI-ML (Liberation) will kick start the 50 years commemoration of the landmark peasant uprising with a three day long march from 19 November at the very villages from where the revolution had sparked off.

CPI-ML (Liberation) Central committee leaders Abhijit Majumdar and Basudeb Basu today told a news conference that the march christened as Jana Jagran Yatra would start from Johru Jote Maidan at Naxalbari and until 21 November traverse through all the villages in the area where the revolution had spread.

At the start of the march, several surviving revolutionaries of the Naxalbari Movement would be felicitated, Basu said, adding that apart from senior CPI-ML (Liberation) leaders, the gathering would be attended by student leaders from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Jadavpur University, and Calcutta University.

During the three-day march, CPI-ML (Liberation) will raise the anti-government policies of the Centre and the state government. These include exploitation and feudal attack on Adivasis, minorities, and the dalits, violation of democratic and human rights, saffron invasion into educational institutes in the country, and the grab of agriculture lands from poor farmers.
