BODDAPADU (Srikakulam Dt): Former Maoists and Maoist martyrs parents from Boddapadu village, Palasa Mandal still want to continue legacy of naxal movement and openly assert that "the movement is the only proper way for implementation of land reforms and bringing about social equality".

They condemn the parliamentary system of politics and say that this decadent system cannot ensure right over land, to landless labourers.

The activists from that area had fought peoples' war, since PWG days, right till the present CPI (ML).

In recent times, though nearly 17 villagers from Boddapadu, have been 'encountered' by police, the parents of slain cadre proclaim that they would not stop their other children from wearing green uniform.

"Almost all of these encounters are fake.

Our men were taken alive and brutally tortured by police and killed mercilessly somewhere outside Srikakulam.

With such extra-judicial killing of our people, the revolutionary spirit from Boddapadu will rise again in future", says G Krishana Rao, whose 19-year-old son Ganapathi was captured alive in Kanchili on 10 March, 2008 and fake encountered in Odisha forests by police.

Landa Rajeswari alias Divya's (24) mother, Varalakshmi of Uddanam village told Express that her daughter had joined PWG after she completed her class 10, in 2002.
