The Sarvodaya leader, Jayaprakash Narayan, has declared a crusade against the Naxalites of Mushahari region of Muzaffarpur district. He has taken a vow that “either my bones would crumble or I shall succeed in my mission” – of curbing the Naxalites.
The Mushahari peasant struggle – now more than two years old – is considered by the Naxalites as the “turning point in the political situation in Bihar.”
A leaflet issued by S.N. Singh, Secretary, Bihar State CPI(ML), declares that Narayan is nothing but “a tested and tried agent of the reactionary ruling class. He is a loyal lackey of the landlords, who have now requisitioned his services at Mushahari.”
