CPI (Maoist) CC Demands Release Of Leading Cadres Veng And Bhavani

Bhadradri Kothagudem District, December 13, 2023: CPI (Maoist) Central Committee spokesperson Comrade Abhay has demanded the unconditional release of leading party cadres Veng (D Gangadhar Rao) and his wife Bhavani.

In a statement released to the media here on Wednesday, he said that Veng has served in the Maoist party’s Dandakaranya Special Zonal Committee Secretariat and the Central Technical Committee.

Bhavani served as a Company Party Committee Member of the Technical Department of the DKSZC. They were arrested and jailed on false accusations by a special team of Telangana SIB on December 2, 2023, from Indaram village of Jaipur mandal in Mancherial district, the Maoist party alleged.

They had been living in Indaram village for the last few months due to old age and ill health. The CPI (Maoist) Central Committee appealed to the people, intellectuals, human rights and civil rights organizations to demand that the government and prison authorities provide Comrades Veng and Bhavani with all necessary amenities and better medical facilities in jail.

Veng and Bhavani were attracted to the revolutionary movement and joined the then CPI (ML) (Peoples War) at the beginning of 1980’s.

The allegations made against them were lies and far away from truth, the statement released by the Maoist party read in part.

Telangana police and SIB were conspiring to keep them imprisoned for a long time, to arrest and jail party sympathizers, supporters, revolutionary masses (especially youth) and to suppress the Maoist movement which was developing again in Telangana. And it should be condemned by all, Comrade Abhay alleged.
