First it was a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Modi and now comes another set of explosive letters that expose the urban Naxals. Republic TV has accessed a letter written by Comrade (advocate) Sudha Bhardwaj to one comrade Prakash. Based in Raipur Comrade Sudha Bhardwaj is a representative of multiple organisations -- Jagdalpur Legal Aid and Bastar Solidarity Network.
The letter accessed by Republic TV talks at length about the meeting that took place on March 19, 2017 in Nagpur. The meeting was attended by those -- Comrade Surendra Gadling and Comrade Shoma Sen -- who were arrested by Pune police in the Bhima-Koregaon case. What is shocking is that this goes beyond their ideology -- a nefarious design that has been exposed. What certainly comes across is the direct link between urban naxals and Kashmiri separatists. Sample this:
Comrade Ankit and Comrade Gautam Navlakha are in touch with Kashmiri separatists. Human rights violations by the enemy in Kashmir must be broadcast on social media and through other media houses. Legal aid has to be provided for pellet gun case in SC, for which you must get in touch with Comrade Prashant.
After Prof. Saibaba's conviction, there is fear among the Urban cadre. Just like Kashmiri Separatists give special package to extremist organisations, their affiliates and stone pelters, we must devise a package for our interior and urban cadre so that they are committed to our organisation , continue working and are mentally prepared to face mishaps and legal challenges. What is evident is that the security forces have been able to successfully choke the money supply.
As instructed by you, research fellows from JNU and TISS (Mumbai) have to be sent to interiors and I need immediate monetary aid for it. Please provide the funds immediately. After Comrade Advocate Prashant's arrest, I have stopped receiving funds. In the Nagpur meeting, comrade Surendra refused to give me funds. I spoke to Comrade Sten Swamy who has been elected by Comrade Prashant for PPS work, but he did not commit on providing funds.
The JNU link has also emerged, with Comrade Sudha elaborating about the desire to send research fellows to interior areas.
As instructed by you, research fellows from JNU and TISS (Mumbai) have to be sent to interiors and I need immediate monetary aid for it. Please provide the funds immediately.
Republic TV did get in touch with Sudha Bhardwaj who refused to comment on the letter. Comrade Shoma Sen's daughter Koel Sen raised questions about the authenticity of letter. "How can anyone believe in such a letter. In today's time anyone can digitally insert such letters into the hard disk and this is nothing but a clear plant by the agencies," said Koel Sen
