SP urges tribals not to be mislead by Maoists

Staff Reporter

Takes exception to Naxals' threat to people's representatives

VISAKHAPATNAM: Superintendent of Police Vinit Brijlal has appealed to the tribals not to believe the Maoists, who, he says, are trying to hoodwink by involving them in the movement to further their own interests.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, he took strong exception to the threats issued by the Maoists to peoples' representatives to submit their resignations or fall a prey to their bullets.

He said that the Maoists were seeking the resignations of the MLA s from the Agency areas of the district at gunpoint on the plea that they were opposed to bauxite mining.

The SP wondered as to what right the Maoists, who had no respect for the Constitution or the law of the land, have to seek the resignations of elected representatives. The statement issued by the Maoists thanking those who had resigned and another statement terming the resignations as a “drama” reflects the double standards of the banned outfit.

Mr. Vinit Brijlal said that the Maoists were utilising the innocent tribals as pawns in their game by threatening to kill them. Minor tribal girls and boys were being forced to join the movement at gunpoint. He appealed to the tribals not to be misled by the Maoists and put their own lives at risk.
