India: Hail the heroic armed guerrilla offensive of the PGA in Koraput! "February 6, 2004 will remain a Red Letter Day in the history of the Maoist people’s war in India aimed at liberating our country from the vicious clutches of imperialism, comprador bureaucratic capitalism and feudalism. On that day, the special striking forces of the People’s Guerrilla Army under the centralised military command carried out simultaneous actions at ten places in Koraput district virtually paralysing the district machinery for an entire day.

These tactical offensives were conducted by countering the increasing encirclement-suppression campaigns by the central para-military forces, the AP Grey Hounds and the special police forces of AP and Orissa, with the active support of the revolutionary masses."
