Red ultras torch truck, block roads
The Maoists set fire to the truck carrying sacks at Jharmunda Chhak to spread terror in the localities. The ultras have blocked roads by felling trees. The Padmapur-Nuapada road has been completely cut off from the outside world and vehicular traffic on the important road has come to a grinding halt.
The Maoists have undertaken massive campaign through posters and banners in the district. Through the posters distributed by Bargarh Mahasamudra Divisional Committee and Communist Party of India(Maoist) the red rebels have urged the people especially the down-trodden to join their organisation and the PLGA in large numbers. The Maoists have distributed posters mainly in Purenakharidihi, Modhipalli and Brahmanatal areas. The Maoists, it may be recalled, had killed one forest guard in Buden under Padmapur subdivision.
