Kobad Gandhy

The Communist Party of India (Maoist) has suspended its top leader Kobad Gandhy for his alleged anti-revolutionary position.

74-year-old Gandhy has spent nearly four decades in Maoist activities including 10 years in prison across six Maoist-infested states.

In a statement issued on Wednesday night, CPI (Maoist) said the outfit took action against Gandhy following his book ‘The Fractured Freedom’ in which he expressed his support to the government.

His book is a prison memoir which is against the ideologies of Carl Marx, Lenin and Mao, said the outfit.

The book was published after he came out of jail in October 2019. The first edition of the book was published in March this year.

The CPI (Maoist) in its statement accused Gandhy of abandoning the dialectical and historical materialism principles of Marxism.

Gandhy was also accused of not contacting the party leadership after his release from jail.

Gandhy and his wife Anuradha spent considerable time in Nagpur and the eastern Vidarbha region especially Gadchiroli.
