CPI Maoist Puts Up Posters Ahead of Bandh in Jharkhand
Police on Wednesday recovered three posters and one banner Maoists put up in Hurdanga panchayat under Karaikela police station area close to the border of West Singhbhum and Khunti district condemning the policies of chief minister Raghubar Das. A team of CRPF personnel who visited the spots with dog squads removed the posters. The posters have created panic ahead of Maoist bandh on Friday. The bandh has been called against the attempts of the state government to change land laws.
“Burn murderer Raghubar Das and police officers in the fire of Maoism,” one poster read. A police officer said other posters talked about intensifying the people’s war against the state and establishing the government of the peasants and the laborers.
Chaibasa SP Michael Raj said the posters were common posters Maoists usually put up to elicit people’s support which they have lost in the past few years. “The posters were removed by security personnel. It was close to the national highway passing through the district,” Raj said.
The security personnel quizzed the locals for information. The locals, a police officer said, told them the posters were put up at night and no one saw the Maoists putting up the posters. “It indicates presence of Maoists. A search operation has been launched and the local police stations have been alerted,” said Chaibasa SP.
