When you analyze present condition of so-called left or communist parties in different countries you can see that even in small countries there are a number of organizations or groups. So the unity question should be approached based on ideological-political line rather than names of orgns. In India the main trends are: Firstly the social democratic trend led by CPI(M) which include the LF parties and even Liberation like former Naxalite organizations, Secondly, the anarchist led by CPI(MAOIST) which include all those who abndon mass line and relies on armed struggle as only or main form of struggle, Thirdly, a number of Naxalite groups you have mentioned who analyze India as semi-colonial and semi-feudal, and path of revolution like the Maoists but do not practice it, Fourthly, starting from RSP and SUCI a number of groups who consider India is a capitalist country with the stage of revolution as socialist, and Lastly, the trend led by CPI(ML) whose central organ is Red Star and to which I belong, which analyze that in post-Second World War period Imperialism led by US transformed its form of plunder from colonial to neo-colonial, with the entry of finance capital, market forces and technology the agrarian sector was transformed through reforms from above and India is transformed to a neo-colonial country, working as a junior partner of US imperialism. The PDR should be completed by the overthrow of the Indian state led by comprador bureaucratic bourgeois-big landlord forces, serving imperialism through a countrywide uprising mobilizing all revolutionary classes and sections under the leadership of the proletariat whose unorganized componenet is becoming more numerous and important day by day, paving the way for socialist transformation. Let us approach question of unity based on a debate on these trends.
