Posters Opposing Maoists’ Bandh Call Found In Odisha’s Koraput

Koraput: Several posters, opposing the bandh called by the Maoists, were found at Hatibari near Nandapur in Koraput district on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the 12-hour dawn-to-dusk bandh, protesting against death of three cadres in separate police encounters, at Malkangiri has badly affected life in the area.

Andhra-Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee of CPI (Maoist) had called for the bandh against the death of Meena on October 12 and two other cadres, Sushil and Sulita, on November 5 in police encounters.

All government-run buses have been suspended owing to the protest. As a result, road communication in the district has been disrupted. Some private buses, running on these routes, have also been cancelled .

Locals are opposing the bandh. In the anti-Maoist posters, the ultras have been dubbed as murderer and accused of torturing tribals and hampering development of the area.

On the other hand, the Maoists have put up posters at Madakapadar in Malkangiri district, threatening people that they would be tried at Praja Court. The posters also mentions about shabby developmental works in the area.

However, it is yet to be ascertained whether these posters have been put up by the ultras or it is the handiwork of mischief-mongers.

Police forces have been deployed at several places in the district to prevent any subversive activity during the protest.
