With the formation of the Armed Police Force (APF) the government has signalled the start of a civil war in the country. This force has been created to suppress the people's war and the struggle being carried out by the Maoists. When the Act covering the formation of this force was being drawn up, the Defence Minister had stated that if the Maoists did not change their ways, they would have to face not only the police but also the army. The Maoist activities are for nationalism, a people's republic and democracy and the strengthening of people's rights, and the government is bent upon denying these very rights to the people. With the creation of this force, the government has now shown its true colours.
Through this action the government has blocked all political moves to a solution. In fact, solutions that could be reached concerning burning issues of the country and the people have been blocked. The government always blows the bugle and states that it wants peace for the people and the country, but has now put a stop to all moves towards peace. It is not listening to the cries of the people and is not showing any interest in solving these problems either. The process of dialogue, supported and moved forward by the Maoists, has been sidelined by the government. It is now bent upon starting a civil war.
