The central committee of CPI(Maoist) has called a “Bharat bandh” on October 5 in protest against the killing of Maoists by the police. In their biggest success against Maoists,the anti-Maoist force of Special Operations Group and District Voluntary Force had killed 13 Maoists in Silakota forests of Malkangiri on September 14. Those killed were suspected to be part of the Kalimela Dalam.

In a press release dated September 17 and released to the media Tuesday,the committee spokesperson Abhay said the bandh was in protest against “brutalities perpetrated by the neo-fascist government of Naveen Patnaik in collusion with the central government and under the guidance of United States imperialists”.

“The Nazi Hitler,Fascist Mussolini or their current descendants like Bush,Obama,Hollande or their desi avatars of Sonia,Manmohan,Rahul,Chidambaram,Jairam Ramesh,Pranab Mukherjee or their satraps in states like Raman Singh,Naveen Patnaik,Kiran Reddy,Mamata Banerjee and Prithviraj Chavan have one thing in common — they all think they can play with people’s lives as and when they want. The killings in Kashipur,Narayanpatna,Niyamgiri or Malkangiri,both in police firings and fake encounters,would never succeed in suppressing the people of Orissa,” the Maoists statement read.
