Naxalites operating from Bangalore?

Naxalites operating from Bangalore?

The Hindu

BANGALORE, FEB. 27. The naxalites (members of the Communist Party of India- Maoist) are active not merely in the Kudremukh National Park area but also in Madhavan Park at Jayanagar in Bangalore.

The naxalites, who were hitherto sending anonymous letters to the press, are now sending statements bearing an address on Third Main Road, Madhavan Park, Jayanagar.

In their latest missive to the press, they have dubbed the Rs. 60-crore package announced by the State to rehabilitate the tribal people in the Kudremukh National Park area as a ruse to evict them.

They have blamed the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, for the killing of the former naxalite-turned-Telugu Desam Party MLA, Paritala Ravi., as he was reportedly a rival to him in the Rayalaseema region.

The statement issued by one Paramesh, calling himself secretary of the South Western Regional Bureau of the CPI (Maoist), criticised the State Government for deploying two battalions of the Special Task Force to crush the naxalites. The Government is not deploying the force to curb or kill the timber mafia operating in the Malnad region in collusion with several politicians, bureaucrats and police officers, they alleged.

The police have not even registered cases against those who burnt or damaged over 150 government buses and other vehicles protesting against the Benny Hinn public meetings in the name of protecting Hinduism, the statement said.

The coalition Government in the State is implementing the policy of the United People's Alliance Government at the Centre, which has promised all assistance to the State Governments to suppress the Maoists, the statement added.
