Janashakti swears by armed struggle

By Our Staff Reporter

MANUGURU (Khammam Dt.) Oct. 13. The CPI (ML) Janashakti began its foray into the peace mission commemorating the first guerrilla action at Pagideru -- a tiny tribal village near Manuguru on Wednesday.

The village echoed to the slogans of the party activists as the naxalite leaders arrived in a convoy of cars and jeeps around 4 p.m.

The Janashakti State secretary, Amar, unveiled a memorial plaque and paid respects to the martyrs. The People War State leaders -- Ganesh and Varavara Rao -- also joined him with a lal salam (red salute) by raising their fists in the air. Flanked by the police personnel and the party guards, the naxalite leaders met tribals and others at the venue.

Call to people

They called upon people to rededicate themselves to the armed struggle, which they said was only the way out to get their due. The senior leaders of Janashakti -- Challapalli Srinivasa Rao and Chandranna -- who were party to the first guerrilla action in the village on April 18, 1969, were also present.
