At Chhattisgarh Dantewada district 8 Naxals got arrested

A Naxal or Naxalite is a member of any political organization that claims the legacy of the communist party of India founded in Calcutta in 1969. Communist party of India is the largest existing political group in that lineage today in India. The term naxal derives from the name of the village Naxalbari in West Bengal, where the Naxalite peasant revolt took place in 1967. Naxalites are considered far-left radical communists, supportive of Mao Tse Tung's political ideology. Their origin can be traced to the split in 1967 of the communist party of India following the Naxalbari peasant uprising, leading to the formation of the communist party of India two years later. Initially, the movement had its epicenter in West Bengal. In later years, it spread into less developed areas of rural southern and eastern India, such as Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana through the activities of underground groups like the communist party of India. Some Naxalite groups have become legal organizations participating in parliamentary elections, such as the communist party of India liberation and the communist party of India Janashakti.
