PLGA Week: Maoist Posters And Banners Surface In Malkangiri
Malkangiri: Maoist posters and banners urging women to join their organisation were put up at several places in Kalimela region of Malkangiri district on Friday. As the red rebels are observing PLGA (People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army) week, security has been beefed up in the region.
The posters were recovered on the 5th day of the ongoing PLGA week of the Maoists in the region.
In the posters, the rebels have threatened people to punish them if they pass on any information or act as police informers by organising praja courts (Kangaroo court).
The Left Wing Extremists (LWEs) observe PLGA week every year to commemorate their comrades killed in several police encounters over the years. Usually, they take out rallies and address public gatherings during the week-long celebrations to pay tributes to their martyr cadres.
As a precautionary measure, the operation of government bus services in the LWE infested districts like Malkangiri, Koraput, Rayagada and Kandhamal have been suspended in view of the PLGA week.
