Maoists organise camp on Odisha border, oppose Gurupriya Bridge

Malkangiri: Once again the Maoists opposed Gurupriya bridge at a camp organised on Odisha border at Basuguda forest of neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.

Hundreds of people of nearly 10 to 12 villages attended the camp which was held under the leadership of Maoist leader Sudhir, sources said.

During the camp, the rebels alleged that the Gurupriya bridge will act against the tribals. Besides, it will also help the State government to plunder natural resources from cutoff areas in Malkangiri district.

A memorial for the cadres killed in police firing was also set up while leaders urged people to strengthen Maoist organisation.

It is for the second time that the Maoists have opposed the recently inaugurated Gurupriya bridge.

Over 600 Maoist sympathisers and leaders had attended a camp at the border of Ralegada panchayat in Malkangiri and Korukunda of Andhra Pradesh on July 29.
