Anti-Maoist posters found in Koraput
Koraput: As a blow to the ultras observing the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PLGA) week, anti-Maoist posters have reportedly surfaced in various parts of Koraput district.
As per sources, days after the Maoists had put up posters and called for observance of the PLGA week, another set of posters signed by Koraput Yubak Jagaran Samiti have appeared in the Maoist belt of Sunki, Pottangi, Ampabali, Padwa and Lamataput areas of the district.
The posters alleged ultras as agents of anti-development and warned them against killing of innocent people.
Koraput SP Kanwar Vishal Singh said that the posters are a clear indication that people are fed up with anti-development activities of the Maoists.
“People have realized that the Maoists do no good to the society. They simply make false promises of development, extort money and kill innocent people,” he said.
Meanwhile, an inquiry has been launched to ascertain the identity of the people behind anti-Maoist poster drive, informed Singh adding that they understand that Maoists have been trying to create an atmosphere of terror by unleashing violence and killing innocent locals.
“Already on the back foot amid dwindling tribal support base in the district, the Maoists may try to launch some offensive to terrorise people during the PLGA week. That is why security forces have been put on high alert. The Maoists will not be allowed to regroup in the district,” Singh added.
