....resurgence of Naxalite movement in the State
What Remains:The Tadvai forest guesthouse jeep, allegedly burnt down by Maoists.
A forest guesthouse and a jeep were torched, allegedly by Naxalites, at the Tadvai mandal headquarters between Warangal and Eturunagaram in Telangana, on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday. The guesthouse was recently renovated and some huts were constructed by the forest department to encourage tourism and attract visitors to the State. The facility had remained defunct for many decades fearing Naxal attacks in the thick forests. However, as the Naxalite movement seemed to have declined, the Forest Department recently renovated it.
Note from rebels
A note, written in red ink, purportedly by Karimnagar-Khammam-Warangal Maoist party committee secretary Damodar, said the Telangana State government should stop taking away the podu lands of Adivasis, which are acquired in the name of development, end open-cast mining and stop arresting people leading the “people’s movement.” The note also gave a call to people to join the “movement.”
The forest officials were trying to vacate them from the occupied forestlands. Those supporting them could have struck at the guesthouse
.....Since last several years, the Maoists from Chhattisgarh intruded into the district and are working in construction industry, hotels and other private works. The arrest of Masaki Adma, Maoist deputy commander of Chhattisgarh, by Husnabad police a year ago was an indication in this regard.
Adma was working at a construction site of an irrigation canal and was collecting gelatine sticks and handing them over to the Maoists.
Sources said that the Maoists Action Team members earlier used to take the support of a local guide to commit an offence.
As there are chances of the local guide being exposed, the action team members are moving on their own and waiting for an opportunity to commit a major offence, they added.
With the State Government proposing to construct major irrigation projects across the Godavari at Medigadda and Annaram in the Mahadevpur region adjoining Chhattisgarh, the district police have sounded an alert and written to the government for the opening up of police stations at Medigadda (Ambetpalli) and Kaleshwaram temple shrine. It was also decided to open an outpost with Central paramilitary forces at Medigadda to start the construction of major irrigation projects.
Maoist threat: liquor shop closed at Anaikatti
Hours after cadres of the CPI (Maoist) put up posters in villages along the Western Ghats demanding closure of Tasmac liquor shops, the State government on Saturday closed down Shop No. 2222 at Anaikatti in Coimbatore district, police sources said
Allege that gangs sell adulterated liquor to innocent tribals
Cadres of the CPI (Maoist) pasted posters in villages abutting the Western Ghats along the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border early on Friday urging people to intensify their protests demanding total prohibition in the State.
The second round of posters comes barely 10 days after armed Maoists stormed Nedukal Kambai village in the Nilgiris district where they held a public meeting and appealed to the villagers to join the “People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army” to establish “people’s rule”.
According to police sources, Maoists pasted posters in Tamil and Malayalam and distributed pamphlets asking people to boycott the Assembly elections. Since liquor was prohibited in Attapadi in Kerala, several gangs based in the adjacent Anaikatti in Tamil Nadu were smuggling liquor across the border in connivance with police and excise officials.
The gangsters were selling adulterated liquor to the innocent tribal people at higher prices, the Maoists alleged. The Maoists threatened that they would attack liquor shops if they were not closed down. Demanding total prohibition and ban on all narcotic substances, they said the CPI (Maoist) would support the struggle for a dry law in Tamil Nadu, the sources said.
Assuring the tribals that they would restore forest, land and water rights to the people, the Maoists wrote on posters that “People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army” would work towards declaring the ‘Western Ghats’ as a ‘liberated zone’, police sources added. “Combing operations are on in vulnerable areas in the tri-junction of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala,” a senior police official said.
