Joint Intelligence Committee Chief (JIC) Ajit Lal has said the Maoists have already made inroads into the strife-torn north eastern region of the country. Mr Lal was speaking at the two-day workshop on Development Paradigms in the North East here yesterday. The linkages between the Maoists and north east insurgents had been established this year and last year, Mr Lal said. There are no evidence of linkages between the CPI-Maoists and the Ulfa, but there are evidence of their linkages with the People s Liberation Army (a Manipur-based secessionist rebel group) and the Upper Assam Leading Committee of CPI (Maoist), Mr Lal said. He said the recent arrest of five people from Lohit district of Arunachal Pradesh for their suspected links with the Maoists and involvement of CPI (M) cadres in snatching of arms from police personnel in Ambikapur area in Assam s Tinsukia district indicated the presence of Maoists activities in the region. Disclosures made by Aditya Bora, the key leader of Upper Assam Leading Committee of Maoists had revealed the organisational structure of the Maoists in Assam, Mr Lal said. According to Mr Lal, the strategic alliance between the north east militants and the Maoists has increased especially after the recent disclosures of arrested PLA external affairs secretary N Dileep Singh and his deputy Arun Kumar Singh Salam in Delhi. The two outfits were currently in the process of finalising details of a strategic United Front against their common enemy which is the Indian Government, he said. The intelligence chief also said both the outfits had proposed to incorporate all revolutionary secessionist groups operating in North East and Jammu and Kashmir and that the concept of the front was to be finalised by early 2012. The PLA which have operational bases in Siangiang province in Northern Burma had supplied communication equipments to the Left wing group and imparted guerrilla warfare training to Maoists, Mr Lal added.
