‘Maoists are the real govt for tribals in Dantewada’

The Maoists have also taken on the government’s role. They are reportedly taking care of the needs of tribals in the deep forests. Locals in Dantewada talk about “people’s governments” (janatana sarkars) in the tribal hamlets, where the Maoists have established local self-governments – they have set up schools and banks run by the tribals, created irrigation facilities by constructing check dams on streams, introduced collective farming and run revenue administration.

“For them, the Maoists are the real government since they have not seen any other officer coming to them so far. So, they are prepared to lay down their lives for the rebels,” the teacher added. According to Manoj Shukla, whose family fled from Chintalnar to settle in Dornapal and ran a grocery shop, the Maoists have the locals completely in their grip.

“The police forces have never made an attempt to take the tribals into confidence and bring them into the mainstream. They treat the tribals with contempt and the tribals treat the police as the enemy,” he said. As revolutionary balladeer and Maoist emissary Gaddar remarked, it is not totally a conflict between the police forces and the Maoists. “The police have waged a war against the people and they are now retaliating. It’s a real people’s war,” he said.
