10th anniversary PCIm in Odisha

VISAKHAPATNAM: The CPI Maoists gearing up to go all out to celebrate the party’s 10th anniversary in the Andhra Odisha border (AOB) area in a big way from September 21 has the security forces on tenterhooks. The Reds have already circulated pamphlets and pasted posters in Hindi and Odia within the AOB special zonal committee limits spread across seven districts of Andhra and Odisha states.

The posters and pamphlets containing slogans like ‘land to the tillers’ exhort people to celebrate the 10anniversary of the Maoist party by taking up an armed struggle to prevent the operation green hunt launched by the security forces and kicking out multinationals from the country. According to sources, the banned outfit has already recruited many cadres from Odisha and has also shifted a few members from Chhattisgarh to AOB area to beef up the Red’s weakening militant wing in the wake of large-scale surrenders and arrests in both the states over the past three to four years.
They have also revamped their rank and file by giving priority to young blood in leading squads and committees, sources said. “The situation in the AOB is tense due to the increasing presence of naxals, who have already made a show of strength through two meetings in the past one month. So far they have killed three people by branding them as police informers,” a senior police official working in the Visakha Agency said on condition of anonymity.
