188 Post-colonial communists

The post-colonial states faced new problems and inherited old ones. In 1946 in Telengana, near Hyderabad, a farmers’ revolt began that lasted until 1951. It was led by the Communist Party of India – and commemorated with a rosette in 1997 by the CPI (Marxists-Leninists), which accused the old CPI of revisionism. The CPI (ml), founded in 1969 by Charu Majumdar (1918-1972), was known primarily for its ties with the Naxalite movement, which launched a farmers’ revolt in West Bengal in 1967.
