Malkangiri: Maoists who had surrendered in the recent past have done so due to pressure from the police and people who are inspired by the Maoist ideology will never lay down arms and will continue to fight till last, a letter released by the Kalimela Area Committee of CPI (Maoists) said.
The letter which was issued by the committee secretary Randev stated that police are spreading false propaganda that Maoists are surrendering on their own. But, the fact is that the security personnel are pressurizing rebels to surrender. Police are also threatening the family members of the Naxals, the letter alleged.
Police atrocities against tribals and Maoist families are growing by the day and it will not be tolerated any more, the letter read. Police are trying to create rift between Maoists and common people, which will not bear any fruit, Randev maintained. He also warned the surrendered rebels of severe punishment as they have turned against the common man.
