Jaipur, Nov 2 (UNI) The pitch of the naxalite movement by MCC and other extremist Maoists groups has started weaning out in naxalite infested areas of Andhra Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar, CPI Marxist Leninist Secretary K N Ramchandran said.
Talking to UNI here, Mr Ramchandran said, ''Maoists groups, spearheading naxalite activities from forests, have now been weakened and their activists started eschewing violence.'' He said a number of Maoists had foresaken violent activities to join the CPI(ML) in Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh.
He noted that naxalites were very strong in Andhra Pradesh but their backbone had been broken in that state.
Internal clashes and infighting within these groups had also been reported from Jharkhand and Bihar, Mr Ramchandran said.
Even Nepal Prime Minister Prachanda's Maoists party, after assuming power, had dropped Maoist suffix from its name, he observed.
Mr Ramchandran said these groups did not represent the true Communist ideology but were merely anarchists.
''True Communists do not take contract for themselves to bring a revolution but only work to spread the message among people for bringing a meaningful revolution through the masses. This does not require any anarchist way or undue blood shed,'' he added.
Accordingly, the CPI(ML) was working to build a force capable of mobilising the masses for revolution, Mr Ramchandran said.
