Villagers foil famine raid

Correspondent


Rythu Coolie Sangham (Satyamula) owing allegiance to CPI(Maoist) planned it


VIZIANAGARAM: Tribals of Errasamanthavalasa, Duggeru, Allagaruvu, Mendangi, Guntabhadra and Anasabhadra in Makkuva mandal, bordering Orissa, foiled the attempt of famine raid by the Rythu Coolie Sangham (Satyamula) in Orissa, owing allegiance to the CPI (Maoist).

According to information received here on Tuesday, one of the split RCS groups, in collusion with the Maoists, drafted a plan to conduct famine raid in one of the said villages. The other rival group alerted the villagers about the possible raid on Monday night. In an attempt to teach the RCS-Maoists group a lesson, the villagers gathered and threatened to retaliate if the planned famine raid was conducted. It may be recalled that members of the sangham organised famine raid on the houses of J. Satyanarayana and D. Veerabhadram at Panasabhadra village in the same mandal on June 17 and escaped with booty worth lakhs of rupees.

Ravi Krishna, OSD, Parvathipuram, when contacted, said that village committees took the initiative to avert the raid and felt that the Orissa police would take all possible measures. He said the police here had been taking every step to wean away youth from extremist activities.
