NEW DELHI: The CPI (Maoist) is spreading its tentacles in the North-East forging closer  relations with insurgent groups active in the region like the Revolutionary People’s Front and the People’s Liberation Army of Manipur. Both the organisations have been cooperating in training, funding, and supply of arms and ammunition.  This was stated in reply to an un-starred question by a group of sixteen MPs who wanted to know “whether Naxal activities have witnessed a rise in various parts of the country including North-Eastern states”. In his reply to the question whether the Naxalites are getting support from neighbouring countries, Minister of

State for Home Affairs Jitendra Singh, said that the CPI (Maoist) has close relations with  Maoist organisations in Philippines, Turkey etc.

“The outfit is also a member of Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia. The Maoist parties of South Asia are part of this conglomerate. The forays of the CPI (Maoist) into the sensitive North Eastern states are fraught with serious strategic implications,” the Minister said.
