In Chhattisgarh, Maoists ask people to boycott LS polls, protest against ban on JKLF: Report

Maoists in Bastar area of Chhattisgarh have asked people to boycott the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and protest against the banning of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front lead by Yasin Malik, reported the Times of India. 

According to the report, villagers claimed the handwritten posters were distributed by the Maoist over ground workers on bikes through the night, while Chhattisgarh police have also confirmed its execution by the Communist Party of India (M).

Seeking anonymity, a local told ToI, “This is alarming since it has been after almost a decade that these posters were thrown so close to the government offices.”

Strangely, a red-colored fabric poster written by the Darbha division of committee of the Maoists, was found on the walls of in Narey Perpa school, along with a strongly worded letter on Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), in the outer Kirandul municipal town, 45 kms from Dantewada. “The ban on the JKLF, which is fighting for the independence of Kashmir (from India) is part of the fascistic Brahmanical Hindutava destructive activities; you must protest against it,” the poster written in an inconsistent handwriting said.

On Tuesday, BJP MLA of Dantewada Bheema Mandavi was killed in an attack by the Naxals along with four policemen.

The incident took place hours after RSS leader Chandrakant Sharma was attacked in the Kishtwar region of Jammu and Kashmir. He later succumbed to his injuries.
